Client Success Stories!
  • Card Card Debt Relief - Our client owed $15,880 on his Chase Alaska Airlines credit card. During our negotiation with Chase, their settlement offers went all over the place from $6,300 up to $9,000, then down to $8,200. We remained steady that our client could only come up with $6,000 to settle this account.  Despite being told numerous times that they could only accept $6,570, we finally convinced them to accept the $6,000 we had been offering for months. We saved our client $9,880 on this credit card debt.
 
  • Student Loan Debt Relief - Our client owed in excess of $20,300 on her private student loan. The loan went into default when she became unable to make her monthly payments. The lender eventually sent the loans to a San Diego collection law firm to collect or file a lawsuit. This is where we stepped in and negotiated to settle the account for about $12,400, payable over 36 months (about $346 per month). In addition to saving our client on the overall amount she has to pay back, she is now able to pay the settlement over an extended term at an amount that fits her monthly budget.
 
  • Credit Card Debt Relief - Our client had a Target credit card she could not afford to pay back. Target eventually sued her and obtained a judgment totaling $4,305.32. Target then levied on her bank account; freezing the $2,000 she had in her account. She retained our firm to see if we could get this money back that she needed to pay her rent. We negotiated with the law firm representing Target to return $1,500 to her account. Additionally, we negotiated to settle the account for approximately $2,150, including the $500 they kept from the bank levy.  The remaining amount due will be paid to them over a 6-month term for about $275.50 per month.
