Debt Settlement Options in Southern California

Individual Attention from Our Los Angeles Bankruptcy Lawyers

Bankruptcy is a great option for many people. This doesn't mean that it is necessarily the right solution for you. Our bankruptcy lawyers at Wadhwani & Shanfeld customize our approach to the needs and priorities of each client. No two cases are alike. We recognize the nuances of our clients' individual needs, and because of this, we refuse to implement a "one size fits all" approach or to push one particular solution on our clients without first hearing their personal stories and objectives.

What Is Debt Settlement & How Does It Work?

Debt settlement is the process of negotiating with individual creditors outside of court to resolve your debt. In most cases, we are able to reach settlements that are considerably lower than the actual amount owed. In today's difficult economy, debt collectors are typically willing to work with us to arrive at a reasonable settlement rather than risk a bankruptcy filing. As a reputable law firm that handles a high volume of bankruptcies, we are often able to settle debt at a significant discount.

When Is Debt Settlement a Good Idea?

Debt settlement is particularly useful in the following scenarios:

  • You are ineligible to file bankruptcy due to a previous recent filing
  • You have a high income
  • You have a large number of assets
  • You have moral or religious reasons for opposing the concept of bankruptcy

How to Get the Most Out of Your Debt Settlement Plan

The key to successful debt settlement is be proactive. If you’ve considered your options and determined that some form of debt settlement is best for you (opposed to bankruptcy) don’t wait to take action. If you wait too long, your account could go be charged off, lessening your chances of a solid debt settlement agreement. In short, if you’re going to contact your creditors, do it soon. Additionally, don’t try to negotiate debt settlement without the help of a lawyer.
