While laws are meant to protect the masses, they’re not written for mass consumption. Understanding how to apply them — you need an experienced professional for that. That's where we come in.
Stecklein & Rapp is a consumer credit law firm devoted to protecting Kansas and Missouri consumers who have suffered due to credit errors and abusive businesses. We want to set the record straight for you.
Serving in the military after 9/11 meant attorney Michael Rapp and his family moved often. It also led to power bill debt in his name that didn’t belong to him. Even when he repeatedly disputed the utility charges for a home he had left after being deployed, the debt remained.
“The power bill just wouldn't go away. I had so much trouble, I thought there had to be a law against that. I was right,” he said. It’s because of this experience that Michael and A.J. Stecklein are passionate about correcting the mistakes unfairly attached to the reputations of their clients.
