Success Rate

Collection Agency Success Rate

Here is a list of the collection agency lawsuits that we have completed to date from 2009-2011. (This list does not include our active lawsuits, merely those that have been litigated to completion, and I will not disclose my clients’ names due to confidentiality promises that I make to each client). While I cannot guarantee the outcome of any lawsuit, and I cannot guarantee that you will encounter the same success as my previous clients, I like to think that our track record speaks for itself. This list is accurate as of December 31, 2018.

We’ve also handled about 125 National Collegiate Student Loan Trust cases to the tune of $2,467,131.39 included in the above results.  As you can see, the results are staggering. Almost $13,000,000.00 in debt cases, completely defeated. The clients in the above list have paid a grand total of $0 towards the alleged debt listed in their lawsuits.

To be fair, we have settled several Capital One, Discover, American Express, Bank of America, TD Bank and Citibank cases in 2009-2018. On certain original creditor cases, like those just mentioned, negotiation of the debt is a proper remedy. We are able to settle these cases, most times, for a fraction of the amount that is due and owing.
