Consumer Protection Attorneys in Kansas City and St. Louis

Your rights may have been violated without you even knowing it

While laws are meant to protect the masses, they’re not written for mass consumption. Understanding how to apply them — you need an expert for that. At Stecklein & Rapp, our attorneys can walk you through the various laws that offer protection for you and your credit, and provide you with freedom from any undeserved and unwarranted harassment and abuse.

I was angry that after several years I was getting unfairly harassed for a power bill I never owed.

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.

“If it could happen to me,” Michael said, “It could happen to anyone.”

When you win, we win

It would be unfair to ask you to pay attorney fees after you’ve already paid enough with your reputation. As a consumer, you are entitled to compensation if you are harassed or abused by collection agencies, harmed by credit bureaus or anyone with access to your money or financial information.

Regardless of the source of the error or abuse, there are laws to protect you. Learning and exercising your consumer rights should never come with a price tag. Stecklein & Rapp directs the financial burden of your case toward the parties responsible for your emotional strife.

If you need help, now is the time to contact us.

Protection for Kansas & Missouri Consumers

Speak with us, and we’ll speak up for you.

Just because some businesses operate with a loose sense of the law does not mean you have to put up with their abuse. There’s a lot more protection out there than you may realize. In founding Stecklein & Rapp, our attorneys aim to help consumers find relief from the questionable practices and shady dealings of businesses toward Missouri residents from Kansas City to St. Louis. Whether it’s a debt collector harassing you or a creditor failing to accurately report a discharged debt to the credit bureaus, Stecklein & Rapp will put an end to it.

Our attorneys have successfully handled consumer protection cases in the Kansas counties of Johnson and Wyandotte and the Missouri counties of Jackson and St. Louis . There are federally granted laws - the Fair Debt Collection Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and Telephone Consumer Protection Act - that we use to level the legal playing field when it comes to how you’re treated by businesses and fraudulent individuals. If you’re unsure of how these laws apply to your situation, call our office to schedule a cost-free analysis of your consumer credit issue.
