Many people think that their creditors have made up their mind to pursue
legal action when their account goes into collections. What they don’t
often realize is that the collection process is expensive, and most companies
would rather not waste the time and effort trying to pursue collection
when they may not even get their money back. Instead, you’ll find
that sometimes, they’re highly-willing to negotiate. Our
debt settlement lawyers in NJ are also skilled negotiators, and do so from a position that understands
the restrictions that your creditors are under which can only help you
get a better outcome.
Negotiations may result in you paying less then what you owe over a longer
period of time with the rest of the debt being discharged. And the best
part: this may be able to help you avoid declaring bankruptcy, which minimizes
the damage to your credit report and lets you recover faster!
A skilled NJ debt settlement attorney can work with you to
validate your debt, which is usually the first approach to defending against lawsuits or
actions taken against you. A good attorney is going to be particularly
skilled at looking at the debt your creditors claim you owe and finding

debt dismissed and you can walk away from them completely free! This isn’t
common, but having an attorney review your case should be your first step
if you’ve been notified of a lawsuit against you.
