Wisconsin Credit Card Debt Settlement and Debt Negotiation
You may retain our firm to negotiate a debt settlement without filing for bankruptcy. For many individuals, filing for bankruptcy may not be the best option. Our debt settlement practice has been successful in resolving unsecured (i.e. credit cards, collection accounts) for only a percentage of what is owed.

The fastest growing trend in debt resolution is Debt Settlement. It is a proven and effective bankruptcy alternative. It is most effective for unsecured creditors, which include credit cards, medical bills, and collection accounts of all types.

Below is a hypothetical Debt Settlement:

Credit Card #1 - $10,000
Settled amount - $5,000

Credit Card #2 - $10,000
Settled amount - $6,000

Collection Account - $15,000
Settled amount - $9,000

The total savings under this hypothetical is $15,000.00!

Debt Settlement is most effective with a lump sum payment to the creditors. The funds to make the lump sum payment may be raised in a number of ways, including, but not limited necessarily to the following:

Retirement Plan Loans: Many plans (i.e. 401k) allow participants to withdraw a percentage of what is saved in a lump sum. After the debt settlement is completed you repay yourself over time without losing the benefits of tax deferred appreciation.

Home Equity Lines of Credit: This allows you to settle your unsecured debts, like credit cards, for only a percentage of what is owed and pay yourself back while your home continues to appreciate.
