The Adkins Firm is excited to announce the expansion of our law firm into the city of Atlanta, Georgia.  The new Atlanta office is located in the heart of Buckhead, The Piedmont Center.  The central location gives consumers across the Atlanta metroplex convenient access to legal representation for identity theft issues, credit report errors or background report errors.  The expansion marks the Adkins Firm’s third office in the South.  The firm also maintains offices in Birmingham, Alabama (principal office) and Dallas, Texas.

“I am excited about the opportunity to help more victims of identity theft and consumers with credit report or background report errors.  Consumers across the South are at a high risk for identity theft and often do not know there are lawyers who can help them.  We are positioning ourself to be the ‘go to’ identity theft firm in the South,” says Micah Adkins.

Citing a report by the Identity Theft Resource Center, USA Today brought attention to the identity theft problem in Georgia.  “Florida, California, Georgia, and Michigan, for example, are all among the 10 most populous states in the nation, as well as top states for identity theft. “People want to live [in these states] and so do thieves,” who go to “places where there are people, so they can apply their trade, so to speak.” Read more.

Identity theft is the number one crime in the U.S.  Identity theft victims have rights under federal consumer protection statutes, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).  The Adkins Firm represents consumers, including identity theft victims, in federal court across the South and the U.S. under the FCRA.  The FCRA provides for actual damages for denial of credit, reduction in credit score, emotional distress and attorney’s fees.
