San Bernardino Debt Settlement Lawyer
Our San Bernardino debt lawyers have a mission to help good, hard-working families find debt relief. So many folks have found their world turned upside down with the challenging economy and are struggling under the burden of credit card debt, student loans and might even be upside-down in their home. Credit card companies and banks are quick to raise interest rates and lower available balances with even one late or missed payment, ignoring the years of on-time payments. Banks and creditors do sue and that can be an additional challenge for those who have missed some payments. Many families in this situation aren’t aware that help is available and they have great options that will not leave them with the long term ramifications of bankruptcy. Debt settlement means settling the debt for less than the bank claims you owe. We believe that a significant reduction in the principal is often what is needed for a family to ever dig out.
Companies attempt to settle debt for their clients without offering any legal protection or advice during the process. Since banks can and do file lawsuits against those that are late and behind on payments, we believe the advice from an attorney is critically important when being served. A creditor lawsuit should not be ignored because with a default judgment, garnishment and other scary remedies may then be available to your creditors.

Settling your debts is tough legal work but it is our focus at McCarthy Law, and we get great results. Our firm represents you against your creditors and works to negotiate a significant reduction in what the bank claims is owed. A law firm doesn’t mean higher fees, either, and are often less expensive and protect you better than companies who claim to do debt negotiation. Good firms will work with their clients on putting the needed monies together over time and an experienced law firm will typically get better debt relief results for their clients with negotiating large principal reductions while also charging a fee that isn’t any more and sometimes less than a debt settlement company. They understand that financially, things are tight. Many companies attempt to settle debt but the people that you will never see or never meet, can never provide the legal representation that a law firm can provide, and they rarely give you guidance along the way.
