Nobody is immune to credit reporting errors and harassment

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.

With 20 years experience making sure your credit is right.
