The Difference is Real
You may have seen debt settlement services on television. Most of these services are done by non-lawyers. Once retained, the shortcomings of these enterprises unfortunately become apparent.
The first shortcoming is that debt settlement firms cannot represent you in court. Once a lawsuit is filed, you are in litigation. Non-lawyers cannot represent your interests at that stage. You can either represent yourself “pro bono” or you will hire an attorney to represent you.
Second, some creditors will not negotiate with non-lawyers even before a complaint is filed. So while these debt settlement services might be successful is settling some of your debts, most likely they will not be able to settle ALL of the debts.
Hiring a debt settlement service may be a fit for some people, but why take a chance? The Coppola Law Group can work with all your creditors, pre suit or after legal action has commenced.
