“What an amazing experience I had with Consumer Rights Law firm. I kept getting constant calls from a debt collector who was asking for someone I didn’t know. After explaining over and over I was not the person they were looking for, the calls still continued, it became frustrating and very annoying. I came across this firm and just called to talk to someone to see how I could get the calls to stop. I spoke to a gentleman that was very professional and very helpful. Not only did they get the calls to stop immediately, they were able to put some money in my pocket as well, Here’s the best thing, it cost me nothing for them to help me. They come highly recommended. Thank you Consumer Rights”
