Our clients choose us over the competition because our negotiating approach is much better than competitors’ approach to dealing with “all accounts at the same time.” Our approach is more cost-effective, predictable, and, if the debt is settled, binding on creditors.
Our Commitment to you as a Client
Dedication and attentiveness to your cause.
High quality of work at competitive rates.
Ability to speak directly to your attorney.
Billing only for the actual work done.
You can come to us or we can travel to you.
Our Approach is Cost-Effective and Highly Competitive
For the simple fee of only $380.00 per account, our firm will get engaged with that specific creditor in an attempt to reduce or restructure that specific account (remember “one account at the time”). We will also analyze your entire financial situation and provide you with recommendations master-tailored to your specific facts.
By contrast, the competition will charge you monthly payments on all of your accounts, regardless of whether they settle or not. You might end up paying more in installment payments than in settled amounts.
If our negotiation results in your creditor agreeing to reduce the balance on that specific account, we will charge you 10% of the reduction amount or $380.00, whichever is higher (with you receiving full credit for the $380.00 that you pay at the beginning of representation). If we cannot strike a deal with that creditor, then no other fees will be charged. In either case, you will greatly benefit from this representation because you will know your creditor’s exact position on that particular account and have an explanation of the alternatives available to you on this and the other accounts.
Our Approach is Predictable
You know precisely what you pay for and how much. You know exactly the creditor we work with and the corresponding account. If a lawsuit is filed against you, we, as the law firm, will discuss your options and prospects of representation in defending a particular lawsuit or filing for bankruptcy.
If some of your creditors will not settle, nothing will stop them from suing you in court, thus ruining the overall effect of settling other debts.
Our Approach Strives to Ensure That any Settlement is Binding on the Creditor.
As a law firm, we can certainly discuss various options that include defending you in court or file for bankruptcy. All your communications with us are secure and confidential, protected by the attorney-client privilege. When we reach settlements, we make sure that those settlements have a binding effect in law.
Most of the competitors are not law firms and will not defend you in court or represent you in bankruptcies.
The below calculator and schedule of payments are for illustration purposes. It is not indicative of your particular account, the outcome of negotiation on each of your particular account or the amount, and the period of repayment the creditor will or will not settle on each of your particular account.
YOUR FEES AND COSTS

If we cannot strike a deal with that creditor, then no additional fees other than the initial $380.00 will be charged.

What Our Clients Say
This guy saved my life!Posted by Brian - avvo.com
“I knew nothing about the bankruptcy process and was hesitant and a little scared. Dmitry came out to meet with me, we had a cup of coffee and the next thing I knew, with a few questions he had filed for my chapter 13. He saved my house and with his tremendous experience dealing with the IRS, he was able to correct an IRS debt that i didn't really owe. Trust me, you want this guy on your side.”

Highly recommend this bankruptcy attorney.”
Expert in bankruptcy mattersPosted by Alberto - avvo.com
“When my wife and I hired Dmitry to help us, we knew nothing about bankruptcy practice. Mr Merrit was very thorough in explaining to us all the steps and pretty much held our hand until the end of road, which had a very positive outcome. He is not only an expert in what he does, but also very compassionate and understanding person. Highly recommend doing business with him (in fact we already recommended him to our friends)”
