Passionate About Protecting Consumers

I am a trial lawyer whose sole focus is to protect consumers against the abusive and unfair acts of debt collectors, collection agencies, credit reporting agencies and others who act like jerks and rip people off. They shouldn't get away with that!

I became passionate about protecting consumers in credit report disputes after gaining significant courtroom experience as a criminal law attorney and graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Gerry Spence Lawyers College. I learned that being able to tell my clients' story well can make all the difference, especially to jurors who need to feel your frustration, embarrassment, and nightmares. Today, I'm able to show those jurors that having misinformation on your credit report can lead to very significant and very real frustration that can affect many aspects of your life.

I focus my firm, the Law Office of SaraEllen Hutchison, PLLC, on holding the credit reporting industry accountable for putting profits before people. Call 888-339-3942 to arrange a consultation in or around Seattle, Washington. You do not have to travel to see me. I can come to you.

Fighting The Big Computer: Large Companies' Bad Practices

I am passionate about this area of consumer protection law because it affects everyone. On some level, everyone deals with credit, which gives credit reporting agencies and the collection industry a lot of power — power they can abuse.

Credit reporting agencies want to be able to do everything by computer. They know that these systems encourage inaccuracies and that they have inadequate fixes when things go wrong. But the computer systems are cheap, so they keep using them and consumers keep getting harmed. Does your report say that you are dead or contain your sibling's bad credit? Even when it's obvious they are wrong, these agencies will fight hard because they want to be able to keep doing what they are doing, often with impunity.

I fight back.

Your Stress Is Real. Your Situation Deserves An Advocate.

So many of my clients come to me saying, "I never want anyone else to have to go through this again. The company does not care. I was on the phone with them for hours and hours. I gave them proof that I paid this thing again and again and they just asked for more."

Life is stressful enough without having it complicated by inaccuracies and lies about you. Maybe you have gone through stressful bankruptcy proceedings only to have a credit agency tell you that you still owe on a debt that was paid off. Or maybe you can't buy a car, refinance your home or rent an apartment — all because of what the credit report company plays off as "minor errors" on your credit report.
