Experienced Consumer Advocate

Are you here wondering if you have a consumer case? Or, are you a lawyer with clients who have gut-wrenching consumer problems you can't solve? My practice, Law Office of SaraEllen Hutchison, PLLC takes on a limited number of Fair Credit Reporting Act cases, such as when someone else's bad debt or criminal history shows up on a credit report or background check, called a mixed file. I have a track record of righting wrongs against consumers and getting them money in the process. If someone else's stuff is on your/your client's credit report and it is causing a mess, please visit my other site,
