Credit Report Attorney New York - Consumer Attorneys

Here’s a stunning statistic you may find surprising: During 2020, American consumers filed more than 280,000 complaints surrounding credit report issues - more than twice the number reported for 2019, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Are you or a family member dealing with a credit report that contains false, omitted, or misleading information? Are you experiencing difficulty with a credit reporting agency addressing your dispute in a satisfactory and timely manner? If so, welcome to Consumer Attorneys, where protecting consumers in New York and across the country is what we do every single day.

If errors have made their way onto one or more of your credit reports, your credit score could be taking a beating. It’s important to address any errors as quickly as possible. At Consumer Attorneys, we’ll introduce you to a credit report attorney team close to you that offers unmatched authority in this specialized area of law. 

Credit report errors are bad enough, but many consumers who attempt to file disputes with credit reporting agencies are ignored or face prolonged wait times to have their issues remedied. That’s where the Fair Credit Reporting Act becomes your staunch legal ally.

Credit reporting agencies have 30 days to investigate consumer disputes and prove that their report information is accurate. Otherwise, they’re obligated to remove those errors. If the errors remain, you have the right to sue, and our credit report attorney team can be with you every step of the way. 

Credit report errors are equal opportunity offenders

Many consumers are astonished when they discover that mistakes on their credit reports have kept them from buying their dream home, securing a car loan, or being approved as a tenant. In some cases, incorrect information on credit reports can prevent consumers from securing a job position or promotion. Credit report discrepancies can turn lives inside out, and it’s your right to sue for damages. That includes going up against the three main credit reporting agencies: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. They’re not infallible, but you want strong legal counsel on your side.

Some types of mistakes listed on credit reports can include:

  • False delinquencies or accounts that don’t belong to the consumer and could result in denial of credit
  • Major credit, loan, and mortgage accounts that are missing - these types of accounts demonstrate consumers’ creditworthiness
  • Credit accounts that are incorrectly listed as open despite having been closed by the consumer
  • Personal demographic-identifying information that is misspelled, very outdated, or belonging to a someone else 

That’s just a sampling of false, omitted, or misleading information that could appear on any credit report at any time, including yours.
