Receiving calls from debt collectors at work? Phone ringing non-stop throughout the day from an unknown number? If the answer is yes to either question, you should read the following article and take the advice given… contact an attorney.
As the article points out, hiring an attorney has many benefits. Credit card companies would prefer that you not hire a skilled professional. Why? Because we know the legal arguments that could prevent a creditor from collecting from you. And even if it is a valid debt, the article points out that an attorney can often negotiate a settlement on your behalf. It is very common for an experienced attorney to settle your debt for a fraction of what is claimed owed, including all attorney’s fees and costs. One of the advantages of hiring an attorney to handle your credit card debt not mentioned in the article is peace of mind. Many of our clients tell us they sleep better at night knowing that they are represented by counsel. It is always our goal to have our clients not lose another minute of sleep worrying about their debt. If you find yourself staring at the ceiling every night worried about the barrage of calls coming the next day, it’s time to seek the help of an experienced attorney to determine what options you have available to get back on your financial feet.
