Cases Represented by the Law Office of Simon Goldenberg*

On behalf of our Client's, our lawyers have fought and resolved many cases with the debt collectors and attorneys at Kirschenbaum & Phillips. Where appropriate, you may be able to resolve your debt within the realm of a settlement at a reduced amount. Some client's matters result in quite a substantial savings compared to the actual balance.

  1. ­­A Client of our law firm received a collection letter from Kirschenbaum, Phillips, & Roach P.C. for a debt owed to LVNV Funding LLC A/P/O Providian Financial Corp for a balance of $8,330.76. The debt was incurred on a credit card with Providian, then the debt was sold to LVNV Funding. Since our client had multiple debts, and had insufficient funds to settle all the accounts, our office successfully discharged his debt in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Our client did not pay anything back on this debt.
  2. In LVNV Funding v. PT, the Defendant hired our law firm as a result of his bank account being restrained for over $10,000. Our attorneys were successful in having the bank funds released due to the New York exemptions to debt collection, however, the law firm of Kirschenbaum, Philips, & Levy P.C. proceeded to institute a wage garnishment shortly thereafter. With a balance of approximately $12,000 outstanding, our lawyers negotiated a settlement for $3000, which resulted in a savings of 75%, and avoided the additional interest and marshal's fees that would have accrued.
  3. In Discover Bank, N.A. v. RJ, the Defendant was sued by Kirschenbaum & Phillips for a debt owed in the amount of $9,300. After representation by our firm, we settled with Kirschenbaum & Phillips for total amount of $5,000, saving the client over $4000 on this original creditor debt.
  4. In Arrow Financial Services, LLC v. E.B., the Defendant was sued by Kirschenbaum & Phillips for a debt owed in the amount of $5,250. After representation by our firm, we settled with Kirschenbaum & Phillips for total amount of $1,500, reducing the debt by over 70%.
