Credit Report Inaccuracy Threatened My Promotion.
After years of working hard and qualifying for a promotion I wanted, I
found out that there were an inaccuracies on my credit report, which could’ve
prevented me from securing the position. Prior to contacting Attorney
Michael Forbes, I did what I always do...tried to solve problems on my
own. I made the necessary phone calls and provided the requested paperwork
only to constantly be stonewalled by the credit reporting agency and the
original creditor. Once I realized that this was going nowhere fast, I
found Attorney Forbes on the internet and made the phone call that completely
changed the course of where things were headed.
Attorney Forbes and his office staff greeted me with warmth and concern
regarding my situation. He formulated a strategy that he said would most
likely work. Well, he was correct; It didn't happen overnight, there
was a process that had to be gone through, but in the end, I have the
promotion, and my dignity. Michael made those big and faceless entities
acknowledge their mistakes and correct their errors. It felt good having
Attorney Forbes as my advocate, leaving me to focus on what I needed to
do with my career and daily responsibilities.
I am writing to let others know that if you have been knocked down by
financial circumstances and are trying to get back on your feet, Mr. Forbes
is the best "wing man" you can have. He is hard working, smart
and dedicated to making things better. He did it for me and I hope you'll
give him the chance to do the same for you.
"Thanks for your service." You hear that a lot these days. You're
lucky as a Vietnam Vet I never heard that. I just wanted to let you know
that someone is really there for you if you have a legal problem. His
name is Michael Forbes, what he did for me was to get me out of a financial
mess. He did it professionally and made me feel like he was really on
my side and it actually felt like he was my friend.
I had two cases that were in the court system. Michael handled both of
them at price that was almost half what another attorney wanted. I highly
recommend him and his extremely helpful office staff of a professional
and fairly priced legal service. I spent a year in Vietnam 1966/1967,
and am now 100% VA service connected disabled.
I may have helped you or someone you know in the Bristol area. I used to
be the Regional Representative for the Governors Veteran Outreach and
Assistance Center. I came to the Bristol Job Center monthly to handle
Veterans matters. My name is Jerry Timlin and I cannot say this enough
-- if you need a great legal point man, Michael Forbes is the best."
"Trust me, I know what it means to struggle. I know what it's
like to serve and come home to situations that you weren't entirely
informed about. Four tours in Vietnam Infantry then went into aviation--
became crew chief. Covert operations for two years in Germany attached
to NATO from 1966 to 1972. Found construction work and worked on oil tankers.
As a Seaman I worked in the territorial seas. I also know what it's
like when you need help and you don't know who to ask or how to ask--that
is until I asked Attorney Michael Forbes. Great all around guy, smart
lawyer and has fought for me like no other. He's one of the good ones.
He'll help you too. Don't wait, just call him."
"I first met Michael Forbes in 1994. I had returned home from sea
to learn two of my properties had begun foreclosure proceedings and debt
was mounting. At a true low point in my life, Michael treated me with
respect. He explained my situation in real terms, not "legalize",
allowing me to make informed decisions regarding my situation. Michael's
knowledge of consumer law is unsurpassed and his dedication to the "regular
guy" turned what had felt like insurmountable problems into manageable
life decisions. Michael has not only been my attorney with my financial
affairs he has provided my family with successful legal advice and advocacy
in child custody issues, criminal defense and has represented me and my
interests on those occasions where I have been unable to do so myself.
Most notably was during the hijacking of the Maersk Alabama, of which
I was the 3rd Engineer. During the crisis, Michael worked tirelessly to
ensure that my family was treated with dignity and compassion. I often
think of Michael Forbes as a bulldog. Smart, loyal and someone you definitely
want in your corner."
