My Statement of Transparency

You do not need to hire me to arrive at the solution to your student loan concerns. You are smart enough to do this yourself. That being said, most clients hire me because they are fed up with the process and do not want to deal with it any longer. Some do not have the patience, time, or drive to dig into the trenches.

I love being a student loan lawyer. Every day, I help my clients arrive at their student loan debt resolution.

Before you choose to work with someone on a solution to your student loan concerns, I suggest you:

  • Do a Google search for the company's name.
  • Check out the ownership of the company's website by going to
  • Determine whether the person you talk with is a licensed professional in the financial or legal field by contacting your state's professional licensing bureau.

“The starting point on all student loan debt resolution plans is to obtain the Student Loan Report from the US Department of Education. This report is vital to answering any student loan question. I do not even comment on a client’s situation without having first reviewed this report.”
