Debt Settlement in Lieu of Bankruptcy

How To Negotiate Your Debt Down

Is debt settlement right for you? With the downturn in the economy, debt settlement commercials have now flooded the local television and radio markets. Before you make a decision about debt settlement, it is important that you obtain sufficient information to determine if it is the best option for you.Depending on the nature of your debt problems and your financial circumstances, debt settlement may provide the critical relief you need. In other instances, filing for bankruptcy may be your best option.But where can you turn for honest and candid advice? Many prominent debt settlement companies work directly for the benefit of creditors. Many bankruptcy attorneys do not offer debt settlement services.At Evans Law Offices, we provide bankruptcy services and debt settlement services. We do not work for the banks or credit card companies. As a result, you can be confident that we will provide the honest and candid advice you require. Our attorneys have more than 30 years of combined experience and have helped thousands of clients find solutions to difficult debt problems. We offer debt settlement services for individuals and businesses. We work diligently to seek favorable settlements of these and other debts:

  • Credit card debts
  • Medical bills
  • Judgment debts
  • Second mortgage debts
  • Personal loan debts
  • Tax debts

In addition to negotiating debt settlements directly for our clients, we also utilize civil litigation in limited cases for the benefit of our clients (with their express consent). For individuals who wish to negotiate a settlement on their own, we also offer helpful advice for a reasonable fee. To learn more, contact our law office in San Jose, California.
