We had former lndlrd fraudulently report us 2 collections&on credit how do we prevent it in future?
Landlord of 9yrs, wouldn't let us pay monthly, and we ended up breaking lease, we had a verbal agreement to BOTH not go after other. 3 months later, they sent it to a collection agency who eventually reported to our credit even though EVERYTHING was illegal and charges were not correct. After several months, our lawyer finally got it removed. How do I ensure they won't do it with another agency?

You cannot ensure they won't send their colleciton to another collection agency, although, routinely, companies usually work with the same collection firms.  When you say your attorney had it removed, are you referring to your credit report or that he had the collection itself removed so that you did owe the amount.?  These are two separate items. The only way to ensure it is never reported again is to have the debt itself removed.
