I was enrolled with LDHR and found it difficult to pay the monthly payment and my mortgage since I had to pay $1,000 monthly for three months to start up. Before I eventually dropped out of the program and did not get a refund, my husband and I were sued by almost all of our creditors.
After the first two suits, LHDR’s “attorney” assigned to my case told me not to respond to the suits and that the worst that could happen was a default judgement, which is what we want. This way they can negotiate a settlement much easier?
After 3 judgement rulings, we contacted all the creditors and worked out payment plans. Its still not affordable but at least there are no garnishments.”
Well it certainly sounds like the outcome was far from what you expected to happen. And paying a lot of money only to be told not to respond and let the lawsuits come can’t be what you had in mind when you embarked on that journey.
You certainly seem to have a story that many would want to hear, especially the Attorney General of Illinois, Lisa Madigan, who recently filed suit against Legal Helpers Debt Resolution. If you’d like more information on that case you can click here.
At the very least, if you’ve already cancelled your service with Legal helpers Debt Resolution you should probably ask for a full refund. You can find my refund process here.
Asking for a refund seems like a reasonable request. They will probably say you hired them to do a job and it wasn’t their fault you didn’t have enough money. But the counter-argument could be that you were never a good candidate for the services, should never have been sold the service, and the payment of fees before settlements just left you more exposed to being sued.
I think if you’ll follow the process I laid out where you give them a fair and reasonable chance to give you a full refund before you start sending all the attorney general and bar association complaints, you might get a quick and complete refund.
