We Help Clients Settle All Types of Debt 

When you choose Fitzgerald & Campbell, our team will negotiate with creditors if we believe they might be motivated to accept less than what you owe. Creditors will typically settle your debt if they believe your only other option is to file bankruptcy, which would cause them to lose even more money. 

In turn, you can pay less than what you owe without going through the process of bankruptcy. 

At Fitzgerald & Campbell, we often help clients settle:

What About IRS Tax Debt? 

Debt settlement with the IRS is called an Offer in Compromise, which the IRS will accept if they believe your offer is the most they can reasonably expect you to pay.

Attorneys vs. Debt Settlement Companies

Settling your debt is possible, but it is never guaranteed. 

Debt settlement companies often promise to settle your debt for pennies on the dollar. They might convince you to pay them instead of your creditors, explaining that creditors won’t settle until you withhold payments. This false information could cause you to lose even more money in the long run and potentially trigger a lawsuit from an unpaid creditor. 

Our qualified lawyers, however, will only recommend debt settlement if we have fully analyzed your situation and believe this is your best option. If we don’t think debt settlement is possible, we will explore other paths. We can also represent you in court if a creditor files suit. In short, we are by your side from beginning to end.

Advantages of Debt Settlement

There are many potential advantages to settling your debt, such as:

  • Lower total debt: One of the primary advantages of debt settlement is that it can help to significantly reduce your total debt. Through debt settlement, you can negotiate with creditors to reduce the amount of money that you owe. This can be beneficial if you are unable to pay off your entire debt and need a way to reduce what you owe.
  • Lower interest rates: Another advantage of debt settlement is that it can help to lower your interest rates. Through negotiation, you may be able to get creditors to agree to lower the interest rate on your outstanding debts, which can save you money in the long run. Additionally, creditors may agree to waive late fees or other penalties.
  • Improved credit score: Debt settlement can also help to improve your credit score over time. By negotiating and settling your debts, you are showing creditors that you are taking responsibility for paying off what you owe. It will also reduce your total debt-to-income ratio, which is another factor used by credit scoring models.
  • Faster resolution: Finally, another advantage of debt settlement is that it often allows for a faster resolution than other methods such as bankruptcy or consolidation loans. Debt settlement typically involves negotiating directly with creditors rather than going through a lengthy court process like bankruptcy does, so it often takes less time for all parties involved to reach an agreement and settle the debts in question.

How Can a Lawyer Help with Debt Settlement?

They can negotiate with creditors on your behalf, helping you to reach a settlement that is more manageable for your financial situation. 

They can also provide legal advice and representation if you are facing legal action from creditors or debt collectors. Additionally, a lawyer can help you understand the complex terminology and legal requirements involved in debt settlement, giving you peace of mind and confidence as you navigate the process.

    "It Was The Right Decision"

    Patricia and Fabiola were both such a great help from the start. It was the right decision to seek legal help when dealing with these debt collectors.

    "Provided Clarity and Prompt Communication"

    We got involved in a domestication of sister-state judgment (from a vehicle accident in Nevada) that involved a different person with the same name, it was originally served to a different address. Several other attorneys had no clue how to deal with this case, suggesting to get our vehicle insurance involved. Attorney William J. Campbell, Luz Rodriguez and case manager Christina did a great job and provided clarity and prompt communication on how to file a motion to vacate this sister-state judgment. The case is now vacated and dismissed without prejudice. Highly recommended.
