Settle Your Debt for Less in New Jersey & Pennsylvania
Debt in the USA is a major challenge that continues to affect more and more households. The total amount of debt held by US consumers is staggering, with mortgage debt accounting for over $10 trillion, auto loans at $1.3 trillion, student loan debt estimated at $1.6 trillion and credit card debt standing at a towering $1 trillion. The amount of debt held by US households continues to rise, leaving many individuals and families overwhelmed with bills and struggling to stay afloat financially.
Debt is a serious and pervasive problem for many Americans. According to a recent study, the average American has $96,371 of debt, which is up nearly 4% from the previous year.
There are many reasons why Americans have so much debt, but some of the most common are:
- Student loans
- Loss of employment
- Growing families
- Unreasonable fees
- Exorbitant interest rates
No matter the reason for your monetary woes, it is imperative to improve your finances as quickly as possible, for as little as possible. That is why our debt settlement lawyers in New York fight diligently to help our clients put an end to exorbitant debt as fast as possible.

What is a Debt Settlement?
Debt settlement is a financial arrangement in which a debtor negotiates with their creditors to settle a debt for less than the full amount owed. It is one method of debt relief for individuals who are struggling with significant debt and are unable to make their regular payments. Debt settlement can also be known as debt negotiation or debt resolution.
Don’t Hire a Debt Settlement Company
There are countless numbers of “debt settlement” companies across the country that make big, bold, and exciting claims regarding the money they can save you. The problem? The vast majority of these companies actually add to your debt problems by charging vague and exorbitant fees for their services and otherwise failing to negotiate meaningful settlements for your debt. What’s worse? Many of these companies actually tell their clients to stop paying bills even though they are current, because they want to “frighten” creditors into settling debts. This only leads to lawsuits, inflated debt amounts, and more severely damaged credit.
Hiring a debt consolidation company isn’t the answer either. These companies are also rarely able to negotiate meaningful resolutions to your debt problems. Instead of consolidating your debt, we actually get your principal balances reduced and are often able to get interest and penalties waived.
