Paid More than $150,000 on a $40,000 Debt

Monday, December 6th, 2010

In a familiar but shocking scenario, Robert Meixner, 62, filed for bankruptcy a year after losing his job as an ambulance-company controller.  He wanted to shed credit-card debt related to a failed flower shop he had been paying on since the late 1980s.  Mr. Meixner said he felt guilty at first, but after calculating how much interest he had paid—more than $150,000 on an original $40,000 debt—he felt much more comfortable.  Mr. Meixner had repaid the original debt almost four full times over and yet still owed more than he originally borrowed!  Outrageous!

Creditor Abuse Prevention, part of the Doan Difference TM

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

A vast majority of our clients are unlawfully harassed by creditors in violation of federal law.  The most common violations are:

  • Repeated calling
  • Using abusive language
  • Calling neighbors & family
  • Calling at work
  • Calling early in the morning or late at night
  • Threatening legal action to intimidate
  • Continuing to call after represented by counsel
  • Continuing to call after being asked to stop

We take this unlawful conduct very seriously.  As part of The Doan DifferenceTM, we heavily pursue creditors who violate the RFDCPA/FDCPA, the state and federal laws protecting consumers from debt collectors.

We prepare a letter to all your creditors informing them that we represent you.  This letter also puts them on notice that we expect them to abide by the law.  Most creditors will comply which means they will no longer call you, your work or your friends and family.  We pursue any creditors that continue to violate the law.

Over 50% of our clients that have had creditors violate the law recovered their cost of filing bankruptcy.  A law-violating creditor paying for a bankruptcy is sweet irony.  Many clients receive a settlement to help them with their “fresh start”.  We take all cases on a contingency fee.  You pay only a percentage of what is recovered.

We treat our clients like family.  Since we wouldn’t let our mothers be harassed by creditors, we’ll make sure you aren’t either.
