Identity theft lawyers near me: Chicago, IL

Penalties and imprisonment can be stiff when an identity thief is caught in Illinois. Unfortunately, that doesn’t deter many criminals from making every effort to use someone else’s sensitive and personal information for their own gain.

There’s good news

Fortunately, American consumers don't have to be sitting ducks while identity thieves continue their rampage through people’s lives. That’s where Consumer Attorneys comes in. If criminals have victimized you or a loved one through identity theft, you can take the first step toward resolution right now by calling our legal team at +1 877-615-1725 and taking advantage of a free case consultation.

If your credit status, business, bank accounts and/or sanity have suffered, it’s time to take the bull by the horns and move from victim to victor. At Consumer Attorneys, we specialize in remedying identity theft damage to help the people of Illinois get their lives back.

For more than 10 years, we’ve helped clients with a number of issues including not only identity theft concerns, but debt collection intimidation, background check errors, and credit-reporting violations. Consumer Attorneys is based in New York City and we represent clients in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. To date, our efforts have secured more than $100 million in monetary recoveries.

Part of our goal is to maximize compensation for every client who qualifies. We pursue third-party liability. Third-party entities can include banks/lending institutions, merchants, employers, hospitals/health care facilities, creditors, and others who may have partially contributed to a consumer’s loss. We can sue a bank, for example, if it negligently allows an imposter to open an account in someone else’s name and write checks against the account.

Identity thieves leave no stone unturned

Identity thieves are opportunistic; they will pull out all the stops to ensure they can siphon the most money from their unsuspecting victims. Here are a few of the ways they do that: 

  • Government identity theft: Thieves use your Social Security number, passport, or driver’s license to apply for local or national government benefits including unemployment, disability, food stamps, etc.
  • Scam identity theft: You receive an email, call, text, or social media request regarding goods, services, or promises you believe are legitimate but aren’t, and you end up providing your personal information. Contact our legal team now.
  • Financial identity theft: Someone takes over your bank account or sets up a new account in your name without your permission. Time is of the essence; we’re here to take your call.
  • Data breach identity theft: You receive notification that your personal information was exposed in a data breach or other security incident. Our identity theft lawyers are here to help.
  • Medical identity theft: Your medical provider or insurance company notifies you that someone other than you used your medical services. This could involve a variety of health care services including getting prescriptions filled. This type of theft could prevent you from 1) being authorized for critical medications; 2) submitting claims; 3) receiving medical care, and more.
  • Criminal identity theft: You receive a court summons or a visit from law enforcement with a warrant for your arrest even though you did nothing wrong. Thieves can provide authorities with stolen personal information during investigations or traffic violations; if the imposter doesn’t appear in court as ordered, an arrest warrant could ensue for the innocent person who belongs to the stolen information. It’s time to take legal action — give us a call!
  • Mortgage identity theft: Your home’s title is in someone’s name, but that name isn’t yours. A criminal steals your identity via phishing scams or stolen tax returns or bank records and forges your deed or title documents in an attempt to sell your home or borrow against it.

 Having strong legal counsel on your side provides you with not only a potent ally, but something money can’t buy: peace of mind.
