Mr. Fagan also worked for CompliSource, a provider of regulatory information and analysis regarding compliance with state finance and mortgage lending laws for the consumer finance industry. In these positions, Mr. Fagan represented and counseled national and regional financial institutions, including depository institutions, mortgage lenders, and finance companies in a wide variety of consumer finance and regulatory compliance matters, including real estate settlement, truth-in-lending, debt collection, fair lending, usury, credit reporting and credit practices. Additionally, Mr. Fagan reviewed new product rollouts for various clients in the consumer financial services industry for compliance with federal and state laws.
Mr. Fagan will now be concentrating his practice on protecting consumers’ rights under intricate federal and state statutes such as the Truth In Lending Act, the Electronic Funds Transfers Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Credit Billing Act.

Mr. Fagan added, “Federal and state laws give consumers various rights and protections against unfair or deceptive practices in lending and credit transactions. All too often, those rights and protections are violated by unscrupulous lenders and creditors. I look forward to the opportunity to help consumers protect and uphold their rights.”
