“No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected.”
This is a famous quote by Julius Caesar, and we here at Steidl and Steinberg wholeheartedly agree with the famous Roman emperor.
Many of our clients have never had a reason to see an attorney. For many, going to see an attorney can, in fact, be somewhat disconcerting, especially when the issue is related to debt problems.
Recently, I met with a client who was feeling upset and disillusioned with the so-called debt relief services being provided by one well-known company. I'm sure you have seen the commercials and received junk mail from similar services that promise relief from your cumbersome debt by paying them a fraction of what you owe.
Does this scenario sound familiar to you? You were contacted by one of those out-of-town debt relief companies, or you contacted them, made the arrangements, and have been making payments for over a year. It seems to be working as no one has been calling you. There are no letters from debtors or lawsuits. You are feeling optimistic that this financial nightmare will be over in a couple of years.
