When it comes to your credit history, it is important to know what information is being provided to potential lenders, landlords, and other entities. There are a number of credit reporting agencies that track a full report of your credit history along with any changes. Some of the most well-known credit reporting agencies include Equifax, TransUnion, Experian, and ChexSystems.
When it comes to consumer law, one of the most common issues that consumers face is debt collection. Whether you are dealing with a debt collection company that has incorrect or outdated information, facing calls at inconvenient hours, or constant threats of legal action, dealing with a credit collection agency can be an extremely stressful and upsetting experience. Fortunately, there are regulations in place specifically designed to protect consumer rights and prevent abusive practices by debt collectors.
Some of the regulations that you should be aware of include the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which governs what tactics debt collectors can and cannot utilize when trying to collect on unpaid bills, as well as consumer rights when it comes to dealing with agencies directly.
If you are being harassed by a credit collection agency about an unpaid bill or other consumer debt, do not hesitate to seek help from consumer protection organizations or legal counsel in order to navigate the complex landscape of consumer law. With the right resources at your disposal, you can stand up for your rights and put an end to harassing calls from debt collectors once and for all.

When one of our lender decided to play games, Richard and Anna from Kim Law Firm came to the rescue. They were thorough, professional and timely on every step while delivering result better than expected! Not only they were able to solve our issue, they assured us through out the process on procedure, expected outcome and timeline. If you need help with anything credit related, look no further and reach out to Richard Kim and Kim Law Firm.
The Kim Law Firm provided great services and I would 100% recommend them to anybody looking for an FCRA attorney. Anna, the paralegal, is amazingly helpful and quick to respond to any communication. Richard Kim kept me informed every step of the way and made sure I understood all the details of my case.
In July of 2014 I retained the services of Richard Kim to help settle a financial dispute between a former business partner and myself. Mr. Kim quickly familiarized himself with all details of my case, conveyed a clear and concise plan of action, was always easy to reach and quick to respond, and most importantly maintained the highest standards of ethical conduct throughout the yearlong proceedings, culminating in a financial settlement in my favor. He would be my first call should I ever need to retain legal services in the future, and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing to do the same.
I have used Richard Kim’s services for a guardianship case involving a disabled sibling, and an elder abuse suit involving my mother being mistreated in a local nursing home, and I've been extremely happy with his work. His professionalism, follow-through, and doggedness in pursuing every avenue of the law are truly impressive. In the future, I have every intention of using Mr. Kim’s services again, for both personal and business-related matters. When I learned of the many honors and accolades he has already accrued in his career, I wasn’t surprised at all. I'm sure there are more to come!
Mr. Kim did everything I could have asked for. He was responsive, quick, perceptive, and displayed keen judgment and perspective. He was also friendly and genuinely caring and concerned. I felt that he was right there with me from the get-go. Mr. Kim's delivery of his legal services was exemplary. With service like his, I expect that Mr. Kim will soon have more clients than he has time in the day. That would be bad for me, but I feel that others should have the chance to benefit from his professional skills. Mr. Kim told me that he values relationships with his clients, and he demonstrated this clearly in our work together.
