Los Angeles Debt Settlement Attorneys

Use Debt Settlement to Avoid Bankruptcy

If you are seeking to avoid bankruptcy, a solution may be debt settlement. Lawyers at Weintraub Zolkin Talerico & Selth LLP have been assisting business owners and consumers with debt for nearly three decades. Call us at (310) 220-4147 for answers to your questions about debt settlement. Get the peace of mind only experienced debt settlement attorneys can provide.

Rather than turning to a debt consolidation agency or company, turn to experienced debt settlement lawyers who will be your guides and advocates through even the most complex financial challenges. Companies that promote debt consolidation programs make the strategy sound like an attractive solution and may not be upfront with all that debt consolidation entails. They may tell you that numerous monthly payments may be converted to one manageable payment. They may promise that their assistance will help you pay down out-of-control debt. They may collect your money and agree to pay your creditors for you. These agencies are often full of false promises.

Many of those debt consolidations and credit repair agencies are fraudsters. Many are unlicensed and uninsured, and they prey on individuals and business owners who are under tremendous financial stress. They promise to help with debt consolidation, but all they provide is more financial stress.

Understanding Debt Settlement vs. Debt Consolidation

When facing overwhelming debt, it's important to understand the difference between debt settlement and debt consolidation. Debt settlement involves negotiating with creditors to reduce the total amount owed, often resulting in a lower lump sum payment to resolve the debt. On the other hand, debt consolidation involves combining multiple debts into a single, more manageable loan with a lower interest rate.

It's crucial to weigh your options and choose the best solution for your financial situation. Our Los Angeles debt settlement attorneys can provide guidance on the pros and cons of each approach and help you make an informed decision. We are dedicated to finding a strong legal solution that fits your needs and provides relief from the burden of debt.

Don't fall victim to debt consolidation scams – trust our experienced legal team to provide client-focused representation and help you achieve a fresh financial start.

Beware of Debt Consolidation Scams

Some people believe centralized repayment through debt consolidation will make it easier for them to stick to a budget as they pay down debt. That might be the case if the debt consolidation plans were truly geared toward helping debtors. In fact, our debt settlement lawyers in Los Angeles often work with clients who have learned the hard way: debt consolidation companies often do not have their clients’ best interests in mind. Only a qualified attorney can negotiate debt successfully.

Many of our clients turn to us after they realize debt consolidation was only a trap facilitated by an unscrupulous agency. High fees and bad advice only made their situations worse. These clients wished they had contacted one of our Los Angeles debt settlement lawyers sooner.

Weighing Your Options for a Strong Legal Solution

Our Los Angeles debt settlement lawyers are prepared to help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of various forms of debt relief. When you contact us, we will offer a thorough analysis of your situation and devise a plan to help you achieve your goals. If debt settlement is a realistic remedy to your challenges, we are ready to be your guides. If debt negotiation or bankruptcy are the best alternatives, we are equally prepared. Bankruptcy will always be a last resort. We may have a wide array of alternative solutions to offer.
