Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW

EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Park View Legal for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with Park View Legal have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Park View Legal listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Park View Legal’s Vice President of Operations, Mr. Brian Mazzarella, wishes to impress upon us his personal philosophy of care. Every employee from the top down sincerely wants to improve the lives of our client base. It is unfortunately rare to work in an company strictly committed to the betterment of its customers. Park View Legal does this in spades by listening to, working with, and informing our clientele as they are guided through the process of credit repair. Mr. Mazzarella often quotes his old football coach by stating “If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.” As Park View Legal continues to grow, so does our appreciation for our impact on people’s lives. It is important for any successful organization in the service industry not to lose sight of that. Mr. Mazzarella’s own view is expressed best with this quote from an email to a fellow coworker: “With Park View Legal, you may only encounter a small number of people, but there is an entire organization who grooms, supports, and believes enough in those employees to deliver the best, most comprehensive, and successful service possible. Fortunately for us, excellence is the byproduct of chasing perfection.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Nirit Rubenstein, Brian Mazzarella, and Langston Bryant during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Parkview Legal.

Parkview Legal provides specialized services to improve the credit scores of clients in order to, "qualify for a home, car, seek employment, or whatever their credit desires may be." Nirit Rubenstein went on to describe the the basic business model, as well as the excellent training provided to employees in order to generate great customer service, "they go through a great deal of training and certification [in order to] understand how to help customers improve their credit report and credit score. It’s a very customized approach...the vision is really to help people. This company was founded as a leasing company and in order to get people qualified for leases they realized that a lot of people weren’t able to qualify because of their credit. So we started by helping people for free in order to allow them to get into the lease. When we realized there was a real need in the market place for it, we actually focused on a completely new business on helping customer. The business was founded with the hope of helping people to realize their financial challenges and get beyond where they are today to better themselves for the future.”

Parkview Legal utilizes several different venues to obtain leads for their company. These include both Google searches, as well as referrals from mortgage companies they have developed relationships with. Langston Bryant went on to describe the typical experience a potential client might receive, "our first thing is to find out what’s on the credit report. It’s kind of like a questionnaire for us to find out exactly what is on the report that’s showing up negatively. What are their goals and dreams? What do they want to achieve by doing credit repair? Most of them just want to get things cleaned up, because they are just tired of having it bad. However, we do have campaigns for people that are calling in specifically to get a mortgage, or specifically to get some type of finance done. At that point, once we find out what’s on the credit [report], we can assess whether or not we can help them based on our experience with our past clients. So the most important thing for us, is to get them talking about credit and get them exciting about the possibilities of getting it clean so that they can move forward to the next step." Ms. Rubenstein went on to add, "once they go through that step, they pay $59.95 and that’s a fee for the pulling of the FICO Report and the consultation with the FICO certified analyst. So that’s what that initial $59.95 covers. Then they go along and have a 30 minute to 2 hour conversation with the FICO certified analyst. That’s where they put together a very customized plan on how to tackle every single item on a credit report. From there is goes on to our dispute team to start disputing the claims and creating a case for the customer with our dispute software.”


During the onsite interview the team at Parkview Legal was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Brian Mazzarella went on to describe both the most common complaint as well as a specific situation and resolution, " progress, I would say is a number one issue. That is what people are paying us for, they want to see results. There are a few things that can tamper that really. It can take some time. One of my favorite cases, there was a gentleman that had a bunch of negative items…we have a very aggressive system, we go after up to 45 items each round even sometimes more than that. We also send out multiple rounds with in a month period. We are extremely aggressive and if someone adds a new negative account, we don’t charge extra, we just tack it on. So this one case this gentleman was with us for three months. I can’t remember the exact number, but I want to say like 30 something negative items and we removed five by the three month point. So of course he was upset, we couldn’t talk him through. We knocked his rate down and convinced him to stay. Between that third and six month, he was 100% removed. His score jumped up...roughly 120 points. So a lot of times it is just the persistence that pays off." Ms. Rubenstein also brought up the fact that some client complaints arise from the misunderstanding of fees. While the arrangement of fees is clearly communicated to the client several times Parkview Legal is always willing to work with their clients, "if you are not happy with our service we are happy to guarantee our service, and give you back your money.”

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Mazzarella went on to describe the specific situation in question, "it was a couple's joint account and they were complaining that they were listening to us but their score was still dropping. I remember that particular situation, we actually had some pretty decent results. I know we gave them a full refund for their complaint ...on top of that, they had student loans she wasn’t paying them. So new late dates plus the interest and that’s why their score wasn’t improving... a lot of the scam complaints are unfounded." Mr. Mazzarella went on to describe the high standard of work as well was accreditations that they have achieved, "I went through our stats, we do a really great job getting accounts removed, and we have a six month guarantee refund. If we make zero deletions or repairs by the six month point, you are entitled to all your money back...a full refund. Sometimes when we only have one removed, we will offer a free month going forward or something like that. We do try to make our customers happy to show we are committed to service and doing our job. We are not a scam. We are accredited with the United Stated Association of Accredited Business, the USAAB and we are working on a BBB accreditation right now. We also have pretty strict compliance rules. We have a gentleman that monitors the phone calls on all levels to make sure clients aren’t misled." Mr. Mazzarella explained that the integrity of their employees towards clients is a key element to their business and if that integrity is in anyway compromised, "they are punished suspended or even let go. It happens, any company is going to have a few bad apples, and you have to deal with them properly. If we do come across where a customer was misinformed, we will offer discounts, free months. We want to make sure they are taken care of. I am really proud of what we do here. We have a great track record and great testimonials. I have over 100 recordings of clients ...these are people who are happy enough to lend their voices to recording. Over a 100 just of recording of people who got homes, got cars, said we did a great job. These are real people. If you listen to them, they are clearly not actors. They are people who put their faith in us and rewarded them. That’s why we like to spread the word about what we do here.”

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to make things right with the customer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Bryant stated, "Compliance. A lot of it is just making sure on our end that we are above board with the information we give to clients and we don’t mislead them in anyway. Making sure that when we monitor our representatives on our side, that they are doing the job correctly." Ms. Rubenstein elaborated, "If you look at the way our company is structured, more than 50% of our head count comes from operations, disputes and customer service. So if that gives any indication, we spend much more time and resources and money on back end ensuring we do things properly than on acquiring customers and getting them in the door. To us the best source of new customers is existing customers. Anything we can do to create a good customer experience is extremely important to us.”

Parkview Legal is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Ms. Rubenstein further explains by stating, "I am appreciative of Ripoff Report because it give consumers an avenue to talk about their experience, and we never want to stifle a customer’s experience. I think we need to be better about making sure that people that are happy are also on the site, so customer coming are getting a proper representation. For every 100 customers that we bring in the door, there are one or two that are unhappy. We do what we can to make sure they are not unhappy. There are still 98 customers that are very happy. Unfortunately for us, it is the two that go on to Ripoff report, so it is exciting for us to be apart of this consumer advocacy. We want their to be an avenue for people to speak their minds. We want their to be an avenue for other people to research where they should and shouldn’t go. We are all for it. It is a great effort.”


"Park View Legal’s mission is to help customers achieve a strong financial future. Park View Legal is a business you can trust who has helped thousands of customers improve their credit scores. Their customers feel safe knowing their disputes are being handled by FICO certified analysts with years of experience.”

Park View Legal's 's staff embraces the opportunity to help clients achieve their financial goals. Park View Legal takes employee satisfaction seriously as well.

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that Park View Legal's past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.


"What is Credit Repair?

Credit repair has a negative connotation, but in actuality is a pro-consumer practice whereby you can exercise your federal rights to dispute any credit data you feel is inaccurate and may be affecting your credit rating. The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows all consumers to question items in an effort to ensure an accurate credit rating.

Why Fix My Credit History?

Updating, correcting, or deleting items on your credit report can have a big impact on your credit rating. This may prevent you from receiving lower interest rates when applying for loans and other lines of credit. Improved credit scores can affect your interest rate and can mean thousands of dollars in savings. If you plan on applying for any type of loan, you should correct these errors and secure the best possible interest rate. Your credit can be pulled by any of these:

  • Mortgage lenders
  • Credit Card companies
  • Utility companies
  • Television services
  • Mobile phone providers
  • Landlords
  • Employers
  • Even online dating sites

Credit is one of your strongest assets. Make it a priority!

Parkview Legal Parkview Law Parkview Law -credit repair scam San Diego California

I was contacted by Brendan Feeney of Parkview Legal Credit Repair Services.  Mr. Feeney requested $60. to initiate the credit repair process.  He told me that afte i paid the $60. I would be asked to pay a fee of around $250. in installments.  He said once the fee and installments were agreed on all erronious accounts would be contested at one time and this would happen immediately.  He assured me that ther would be no further monthly fees like their competitors  He also explaint the process would bring fast results which would likely take around sixty days at the most.

Hereis the ripoff.

Once i paid the sixty dollars i was contacted by another salesman who explained that they would contest nothing until i paid the entire $400. fee which could be paid in installments.  He went on to explain that nothing would be contested till the fee was paid and that after sixty days there would be an $89. Monthly fee just as they explained they did not chargebefore ipaid the initial $60.

 They took my credit card account information under false pretense and charged my bank under false pretense.  They also took my socisl security number under false pretense.  I believe this is a sort of credit card/identity theft and would like them t return my money.

Before using their services i contact the BBB and was ok with their rating.  Once the frsud occured i contacted BBB online and found their account "under review".

I believe i was defrauded and believe they use this " bait and switch" tecnique to illegally obtain account information from trusting victims.  I have since found numerous complaints against this company and am filing this report in hopes they will refund mymoney and immediatly stop lieing to potential customers.  There is no need to trick people out of their money when honesty and good business practices are all it really takes to succeed.

I willupdate my report the moment i learn they have returned their fraudulantly obtained payment of sixty dollars.
