Here at Advocate Capital, we’ve been reviewing credit reports of plaintiff lawyers every day since 1999. In that time, we have seen many lawyers’ credit scores that were surprisingly low, and often to the surprise of the lawyer! You should know your credit score and should spend some time making sure you keep it as high as possible.
Your credit score can affect your financial well-being in many ways. Whether it is obtaining a mortgage, getting the best credit card rate or leasing a car, you will get much better pricing if you have a high score. Also, many background checks for employment and positions of responsibility include a credit check.
