Interesting Points

One thing you’ve got to give a pat on the back to OVLG is they put it all out there for people to see, including their fee schedule.

Their debt settlement fee structure is among the lowest, if not the lowest, I’ve ever seen:

For debt amount less than $10,000:
Enrollment fee:
$100 per creditor.

Monthly maintenance fee:
$50 irrespective of the number of creditors.

Success fee:
10% of the savings.

For debt amount of $10,000 and more:
Enrollment fee:
5% of total debt amount.

Monthly maintenance fee:
$50 irrespective of debt amount.

Success fee:
10% of the savings. – Source

I did enjoy the following FAQ from their site:

Do people in the Indian call center of OVLG use their real names?
The call center employees of OVLG in India use Pseudo names. If you are comfortable with pronouncing their Indian names please ask them for it and they will be happy to give it to you. – Source

The Oak View Law Group is very open about the fact they are primarily driven by what appears to be an Indian call center. In fact they even publish their employee directory online which shows both the Anglo name and real name of each employee.

For some people, it may be uncomfortable knowing their personal and financial information is being handled in a foreign country. It appears the mail and finance departments are also run by the call center in India. See directory listing below. But the reality in todays world is that many mainstream financial institutions host operations and call center departments in India and elsewhere.

One thing is certain, you’ve got to give this group a pat on the back about being open. They might be primarily an operation centered in India but they are more forthcoming with information that almost all their U.S. based counterparts.

Two examples of openness are the customer survey results they publish on their site, which seem entirely real and the 328 client testimonial videos they make available as well here. My one complaint, tell people to lift up the laptop when recording their video. I could not watch one more chin focused video. LOL.

  • We have written a letter to BBB and here is a link to it:

    The summary of the letter is:
    1. Over the last 4 years we had 6400 clients and 20 complains with BBB.
    A. The complaint statistics reported by BBB are wrong since 3 of the complaints were not against us, though they have been put in our file.

    2. We are one of the very few firms in this industry with 100% no question asked money back policy.

    3. Our competitors with far more complaints are rated favorably by BBB.

    4. To maintain a balanced perspective see over 40 client video testimonials on

    5. In the Trust link community which is a BBB program we are rated: 4 stars from 146 customer

    We feel confident that there is a misunderstanding between BBB and OLVG and we are working with BBB to get the rating back.
