Our law firm operates a successful debt settlement program, which offers our clients a user-friendly way to resolve all of their credit card debt with just one monthly deposit into a debt settlement bank account controlled by our firm. We negotiate with collection agency lawyers like Selip & Stylianou LLP - Cohen & Slamowitz LLP and many more to arrange affordable settlements within your budget.
The legal fee we charge for participation in our Debt Settlement Program is fifteen percent (15%) of your account balances at the time of enrollment. However, our fee for settlement of any account is not earned or paid to us until a settlement agreement has been entered into for that account. The monthly debt settlement deposit amount we calculate with you is based on an estimated sixty-five percent (65%) settlement amount for your enrolled accounts, plus our 15% settlement fee, and the cost of your debt settlement bank account as arranged with an insured financial institution. Most clients can expect to see at least one enrolled account settled within your first year in our program.
You as the client own all funds on deposit in your debt settlement bank account, called a Dedicated Account. You can withdraw those funds at any time without penalty.
Note: Debt settlement can hurt your credit rating and you may incur taxes on any portion of a debt forgiven by a creditor. Alternatives to debt settlement include free credit counseling and arrangements to repay debts in full, as well as Bankruptcy to discharge all of your unsecured debt and/or restructure any secured loans.

If your budget does not let you afford settlement of your debts, our attorneys can review your finances with you to determine if you are likely to qualify for a discharge of debts by filing for Bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
Homeowners, those with student loan debt, and a variety of other debtors may also benefit from a financial review for a Bankruptcy filing under Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, which includes a favorable repayment plan.

If you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments, contact the bank or mortgage servicing agent early can make a big difference in the effort to save your home or negotiate a favorable surrender. By responding to mail and phone calls from the bank's servicing agent, you show your own Good Faith. If the bank fails to reciprocate with its own Good Faith settlement negotiations, you may be able to have any foreclosure lawsuit dismissed in court.
We find it is most helpful to have a professional review your mortgage loan documents for popular defenses to foreclosure, including the bank's lack of standing to sue and lack of ownership of the mortgage or promissory note. By reviewing the right information within the lender's paperwork, an experienced attorney can identify important problems with the bank's case, which can make all the difference in obtaining a favorable outcome.
Our law firm employs attorneys and staff knowledgeable about of the popular mortgage modification programs sponsored by the U.S. government, including the Home Affordable Mortgage Program (H.A.M.P.)
Strategic litigation of defenses to foreclosure while going through the mortgage modification application process is often an important way to gain leverage over the bank and pressure them to approve a modification that may otherwise be denied.
