I'm currently with Lexington as well. I'm planning to cancel though as they've only been able to remove 1 listing after 6 months of their Concord membership. I make enough money to where I didn't care but now the $99 monthly fee seems better spent towards snowballing down my other debt.
To be fair, I have real debt with major banks so I don't blame them at all. At this point, however, I'm probably not going to get much out of LL.

I am really interested to follow the rest of this thread and see what everyone's results are with LL. I called them before I found this site and when I asked them-
'what can LL do for me that I can't do for myself?'
The woman said that they send an onslaught of dispute letters that are less likely to be ignored because they come from a law firm, and these companies are in business to make money, not to waste resources fighting with law firms.
Fair point, but I had a funny feeling about it because my 2 baddies were small and I thought I would get farther with asking nicely for GW deletes than bringing out the big dogs and going into full attack mode. So I read up on the goodwill process here, made 2 phone calls xmas eve from a family dinner, and both baddies were removed.
Best of luck to you all and I will watch the results so I know what to recommend to friends.

Please do explain your not very clear you said it was worse but you were not clear on how much better they made it. I am trying to understand everything. My credit was perfect until my neck was broken by my now exhusband so I am disabled and trying to fix it and confused. Perhaps a full year would be better Charge off what does that even help?? Your knowledge and advice please. Additionally he has some how moved things into my social and made all types of inquires under my social is that identy theft and does it fall under their protection. I am going to call them. They also state they have other protection but I haven't found it on the website yet. Thank you~~

By law, if you filed chapter 7 BK it must remain on your credit reports for 10 yrs. Chapter 13 is 7 yrs.
I believe it is the other way around: By law a chapter 7 BK may not appear longer than 10 years and a chapter 7 may not appear longer than 7 years.
There is no requirement to report anything only limitations on what is reported and for how long.
