While Tom Breeden devotes a big share of his practice to consumer fraud and credit issues, he also offers experienced and effective representation in other practice areas:
Wills and probate law
Our goal is to find those responsible for any type of consumer mistreatment and see that they are held accountable. We will exhaust all options to meet this goal, starting with a firm demand that the business or credit bureau in question right the wrong and compensate our client for any damage that the error or mistreatment has caused.
If they are unwilling to fulfill our requests, we will take your case to the next level. Tom Breeden and his highly qualified team have the knowledge and experience to take consumer fraud, Fair Credit Report Act violations, and other consumer protection matters to court. We are diligent and committed to the results you deserve.
We Care About You
We demonstrate our devotion to clients by providing you with personal attention from a dedicated lawyer, not just a paralegal or associate. At the outset of your case, we will take the time to go over the possible outcomes, the choices you will have to make along the way and all of the steps involved. We believe in setting realistic expectations. Then we work hard to exceed those expectations.
