I Received Information From Legal Helpers Debt Resolution But Should I Move Forward? – Carla


“Dear Michael,

I have approximately $37k in credit card debt.

I contacted Legal Helpers Debt Resolution after receiving information in the mail. I’m getting ready to move forward and sign an agreement with LHDS but I have been reading blogs on the internet that has made me question whether I should move forward. Can you recommend a debt settlement company? Please help:(


Hi Carla,

The first thing I want to help to establish is whether a debt settlement approach to your debt is the most appropriate.

Why is it that you have determined this is the best path for you to take?

Have you consulted with professionals who offer other solutions such as credit counseling, or bankruptcy?

When it comes to selecting a debt settlement firm to assist you, I would recommend you work with a company who does not charge service fees in advance of delivering a service. To my knowledge, Legal Helpers charges upfront fees.

I would recommend you consult with members of the AACC who offer debt settlement services. They provide no cost evaluations and do not charge for the direct debt settlement service until you see results.

You may even want to consider DIY debt settlement where you can navigate the process yourself with help from knowledgeable experts.

Please respond in the comment sections with any additional feedback or questions you may have.

Best of success in your efforts!
