Resolve Your Mixed Credit File Issues Today

Are you facing issues with a mixed credit file? You’re not alone. A mixed credit file occurs when the credit information of two or more individuals is mistakenly combined in a single report. This can result from similarities in names, Social Security numbers, addresses, or other identifying information. Such errors can have significant consequences for your financial health, impacting your credit score and your ability to secure loans or credit. 

Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)

The FCRA protects your credit information rights. You can request a free credit report from Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion annually. If there are errors, you can dispute them, and the agencies must correct valid errors within 30 days. You also have the right to know who accessed your report and to have negative information removed after a set period, usually seven years. These rights ensure accurate and fair credit reporting.

Am I Eligible to File a Lawsuit?

If you have suffered financial harm or other damages due to a mixed credit file, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Individuals whose credit reports have been inaccurately merged can take legal action against the credit reporting agencies or the entities that furnished the incorrect information. By filing a lawsuit, you can seek compensation for any financial losses, emotional distress, and other damages caused by the erroneous credit reporting. Our legal team can guide you through the process, ensuring your rights are protected and helping you achieve the best possible outcome.

Client Testimonies (4.9 Stars Google Reviews)

Last year, I broke my elbow at an event where I slipped and fell really hard. I was unable to resume my everyday tasks for months and was in severe pain. At first, I was hesitant to get an attorney. When I finally got the courage to reach out, I knew I could trust the Marcus and Zelman team. They were there for me every step of the way and guided me through this difficult time. From physical therapy, doctors and insurance companies they handled everything seamlessly. I was very impressed by their professionalism, honesty and the result felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders
Becky from New Jersey / Personal Injury
Imagine calling your mortgage broker and seeking a new mortgage to purchase your retirement home and being told you are currently two months behind on your current mortgage and your credit score has plummeted. Knowing this to be a mistake, I called my mortgage company who, in short, refused to correct their mistake. My credit was so impacted that I couldn't borrow money to do the needed repairs to be completed before moving into our new home on the lake. I maxed out ever credit card and depleted our savings to move in. It was humiliating! After contacting Marcus & Zelman, things began to turn around. The tenacity and unwavering effort they put into my case put me at ease. I felt they would make this wrong - right. The attorneys and I spoke often and were available immediately to speak to me whenever I called. The firm remained focused on the objective to make me whole again.
Peter / Credit Reporting Errors
The calls I was receiving were becoming more and more stressful, but thankfully I had Marcus and Zelman taking control of the situation. Their efforts helped give me the peace of mind I needed. They were always very responsive and informed me of what to expect whenever any future occurrence would arise that I needed to know about. My experience with Marcus and Zelman was phenomenal and I couldn’t recommend them more.
