I agreed to set aside the default. I came home that day and told my wife that I just had to get out of the debt collection business. I could no longer do this kind of work.
A short time later, a lady had retained Nitzkin and Associates to clean up her credit report as her identity and those of several of her family members had been stolen by her ex husband. I discovered a love for this work as I was now helping people.
In 2010, I re-branded the firm to Michigan Consumer Credit Lawyers and focused exclusively on credit repair, collection defense and other matters to help consumers, especially when it did not cost them anything. The firm was and remains, very successful.
In 2015, we expanded the firm into Arizona. Providing credit repair to consumers proved to be a business model that was highly in demand around the country. We have decided to expand again.
Today, the firm is transitioning into a national brand and will be renamed Credit Repair Lawyers of America as of January 2017. We have a long list of states into which to expand to help people clean up their credit reports. Helping consumers is far more rewarding than working for debt collectors.
