Attorney Jeffrey Baskerville and Paralegal Faina Bhagat were an awesome legal team for my consumer affairs case! I enjoyed the professional and caring attitude they brought to the handling of my case! I was very pleased with the results of the case and how they brought me justice to stop the big 3 credit bureaus and collection agency from posting a collection that was not even legitimate! Thanks again Jeffrey and Faina and I appreciate your hard work and commitment to seeking justice and your passion for the Law!Michael H.
I had a problem with a credit bureau that I did not think I had a valid case against but Joe Gentilcore and Daynette Driver took my case and within 5 months it was settled and I received a check for all the trouble I went through. I would not hesitate at all to use the law firm of Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C., PC in the future.John S.
I discovered by accident that two of the three major credit reporting companies showed me as deceased. I engaged the services of Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C., P.C. to get my reports corrected. My credit reports are mow completely correct, the reporting companies paid the legal fees, and I received a cash settlement from both companies. I can wholeheartedly recommend Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. if you find errors on our credit reports.Jimmie
