Protecting You From Unauthorized Disclosures of Credit Reports

Unless a company or a person has a permissible purpose, they are not allowed to obtain a copy of your credit report. A permissible purpose comes about when you have applied for credit or owe a certain amount of debt. If your credit report has been distributed to unauthorized parties, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. In order to protect and understand your rights, it is important to retain the services of a highly knowledgeable credit report and privacy issues lawyer.

At Keogh Law, Ltd., our Chicago consumer rights attorneys help clients with various credit issues resulting from credit report inaccuracies, invasion of privacy and identity theft. Your credit report contains valuable personal information and cannot be disclosed to anyone without your permission. With the enactment of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other laws, you have legal protection from unlawful disclosures and their potential for damage. We will work closely with you so you understand your rights and the issues that are involved in your case.
