A business debt settlement attorney can help you reduce your business debt. Our attorneys at ZocLaw.com have helped many small business owners get a handle on overwhelming debt through the debt settlement process.
What can a business debt settlement attorney do for you?
A business debt settlement lawyer will call your creditors to negotiate a settlement on your debt. Your lawyer then reaches an agreement with your creditor as to the amount that you need to repay to the creditor in order to satisfy the debt. Thereafter, the agreement between your attorney and your creditor is recorded in writing, and you pay off your debt with that creditor in one lump sum. The settlement amount will be a fraction of the amount of the actual debt owed to the creditor.
When it comes to business debt , it may be best to use an attorney rather than attempt settlement with your creditors on your own. This is because creditors are more likely to enter into agreements with your attorney as opposed to you; and you have more important things to do as a business owner than handling your debt negotiations. Your best skill is making money in your field, so leave the debt details to an expert in the field of debt like the attorneys at ZocLaw.com, as they are experts in the field of business debt settlement.
Since a debt settlement attorney is licensed in law, attorneys are often taken very seriously by creditors. They are aware that he or she means business and that they cannot give them a difficult time. They will however, not take you seriously and will fool you into doing things that may hurt you later on.
The attorney can get right to the heart of the matter and persuade the creditor into giving you a hefty discount on your debt and get your creditor to sign an agreement. The lawyer in a smart way will be able to explain to your creditor that you cannot afford to pay of the full debt and thus require a reduction in the amount. Attorneys will present your circumstances in such a manner that creditors will be afraid that if they do not accept the settlement offer from the attorney, they may receive no money from you at all.
Attorneys also know all the tricks of the business as they are experts. They have the knowledge and ability to negotiate. The majority of consumers are not sales savvy enough to get into a negotiation, particularly when they are emotionally involved in the situation. Further, the average consumer is unlikely to know which companies are likely to give large discounts on debt, so if you attempt to negotiate with your creditors on your own, you will be negotiating at a serious disadvantage. Thus it is best that you use a settlement attorney that specializes in debt negotiation.
Even though you would have to pay a debt settlement lawyer for the professional services that he or she may rendered to you, you will come out much farther ahead using a debt experienced lawyer rather than trying to do the settlement on your own.
