About Us

Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C.

Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C. has represented thousands of consumers against credit reporting agencies, banks, credit card companies, debt collectors, and mortgage companies. We help consumers facing a variety of different legal issues, including: inaccuracies on their credit reports, mortgage issues, predatory loans, harassing robocalls, debt collection, and issues with automobile sales and repairs.

Our attorneys are recognized locally, regionally and nationally for their expertise. We have testified before Congress and received numerous state and national awards, such as being recognized as the top Financial Services plaintiffs’ firm in the nation by the National Law Journal (2019 and 2020) and for our pro bono service (2019 co-winner Pro Bono Award from the Virginia State Bar). Leonard Bennett has been recognized as the 2017 national Consumer Lawyer of the Year, and multiple attorneys at our firm have been recognized as SuperLawyers, and VLW Leaders in the Law.

Press recognition has included media outlets from 60 Minutes to the New York Times.

We understand that most major financial transactions today, such as a mortgage or a car loan, are daunting to consumers. And that trying to correct issues on your credit report can feel hopeless. All too often, large corporations have the upper hand in these transactions and consumers are left puzzled at what they can do. We are here to push for greater protections for you and consumers across our country.
