TX OCCC Violators Arrive from Out-of-State and File Suit Unlawfully in SDTX Federal Court BUT the case has paused in Bent Judge Bennett’s Chambers since LIT published this case: https://t.co/5QK4k8VTVF@uscourts @TXsecofstate – However, his Jaffer case was allowed to proceed.

NO MOVEMENT SINCE OUR SEP. 15 UPDATE… (AS AT OCT. 14, 2022)
Both the firm and the lawyer are ‘self confessed’ debt management / debt settlement providers. When you come to Texas, you need to be registered with the OCCC. Neither are, in violation of the law.
Let’s see if Judge Bennett will just proceed and turn a blind eye to Texas Laws, he’s an expert at blanking what he doesn’t want to read or know.

Gary Nitzkin, Attorney and CEO of Credit Repair Lawyers of America, MI
WHAT I DO: I am a Credit Repair lawyer. Since 2008, we have helped thousands of consumers get errors and mistakes removed from their credit reports, all for free. We also stop debt collectors and collection agencies from harassing and abusing consumers, at no out of pocket cost to our clients.
HOW I PROVIDE OUR SERVICES AT NO OUT OF POCKET COST: Under the laws that we sue under, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the defendants have to pay our fees and costs.
FOR WHOM I WORK: Consumers who have errors and mistakes on their credit reports, who are harassed by debt collectors or are receiving numerous telephone calls from telephone solicitors. Did you know that 80% of all credit reports have an error or mistake on them? Worse yet, have of those mistakes depress the credit score. Do you think yours might have an error? Are you sure?
LIKELY REFERRAL PARTNERS: We are “the legal muscle” for many credit repair companies when they hit a road block with the credit bureaus. We provide our services for free to these pros to help them improve their businesses and to help their clients. We also work with many lawyers when their clients face credit issues, particularly bankruptcy lawyers.
Call me if you have questions.
While we are only licensed in Michigan, we file lawsuits across the United States through our relationships with other attorneys.
