Dan Schlanger and his team (Brian Herrington and others) were incredibly helpful with our case where we lost tens of thousands of dollars. I called more than a dozen other consumer protection lawyers and Dan's was the only team that felt confident enough in their abilities and years of experience to take on our case. I am so happy that we reached a settlement that recovered everything we lost.

Credit Reporting & Identity Theft Litigation Leaders

Because your credit report impacts your life in many ways, your financial information must be accurate. Unfortunately, credit reporting agencies and creditors can make mistakes and some companies don’t care about errors and fraud.

At Schlanger Law Group, we represent victims of identity theft, unauthorized charges, and inaccurate credit reporting whose disputes have been ignored or rejected by their financial institutions and credit bureaus.

We regularly advocate for victims’ rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and relatively few law firms have our extensive experience.  We are proud to be a nationwide leader in this space.

Unauthorized Electronic Transfers Act Attorneys

If you lose your ATM or debit card, or an identity thief steals your personal information, financial accounts can disappear.

When you find unauthorized bank transactions do you know what to do?

Under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) you need to report and dispute unauthorized transactions as quickly as possible to limit your potential losses. 

Unfortunately, some banks respond with slipshod  policies or cursory “investigations” that violate the EFTA.

When you need an experienced consumer fraud lawyer to litigate your electronic fund disputes, turn to Schlanger Law Group.
