Debt Settlement vs. Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy can be a great option if your debt has become unmanageable – but it’s not your only option. Debt settlement allows you to negotiate with creditors out of court in order to resolve debts. With our help, you may able to considerably lower your debt. You may want to opt for debt settlement if:

  • You have a high income
  • You have a large amount of assets
  • You are ineligible to file bankruptcy because of a previous filing

As a respected law firm in Southern California, we frequently work with debt collectors to help our clients reach a reasonable settlement amount and avoid filing bankruptcy. If you would like to learn more about your options for lessening your debt, call us at (213) 550-5090.
