I recommend Mr. Minsky to anyone with student loan problems, or if they want to know where things stand in relation to the complicated world of student loans. Having defaulted on my loan about 17 years ago and being based overseas (no intention of returning to the US), Mr. Minsky outlined possible options for his services in a direct and open manner via Skype. My loan did not appear on any credit reports, as collection efforts had ceased due to an inability to contact me. I did not know how to find out how much I owed and he provided detailed instructions as to how to get my current loan balance. My case was somewhat unique in the ability to negotiate a settlement and Mr. Minsky quickly recognised how things should proceed. Options for dealing the the Department of Education were outlined clearly as well as the possible implications of the decision made. Instructions for me and from me to him were clearly outlined before any action was taken. All correspondence was responded to In a timely manner with a direct approach provided. The matter was settled quickly and with a significant discount on what I had been quoted as a loan balance from the collection agents (Department of Education). Once again, my case was somewhat unique but the DOE does not have the best reputation for negotiating settlements, either. Mr. Minsky is a true professional and I would recommend him unreservedly in relation to any student loan work.
Adam provided a concise picture of my student loan debt and clearly outlined my repayment and loan forgiveness options. He responded promptly to all email and phone correspondence and had an answer to all of my questions. After trying to navigate the system on my own, I was so relieved to find an expert for much-needed guidance in the world of student loan debt!
I had a very complex student loan situation, and my loan was in default. Adam was the first person to give me hope that there could be a solution. He listened to how I hoped to resolve it and worked tirelessly toward that, eventually achieving the best possible result. He was always thorough and diligent, and never missed important details. He was incredibly prompt in his response to emails, always kept me informed, and made me feel confident that he was handling my situation extremely well. He was also courteous and highly professional. I highly recommend him.
I was in a real rough spot fresh out of school, many of my loans had gone into default and were then being handled by collection agencies that gave me no room to breath. Adam was able to contact them and back them off (after many unsuccessful attempts from myself). He was able to consolidate my loans and get me back on track with a plan that worked for me. It was literally like a giant advil for my loan situation. If you are in a similar spot, i definitely recommend his services.
After years of dealing with the stress of unresolved student loan issues Adam helped me back out of a what seemed to be an impossible and overwhelming financial issue. His professionalism, knowledge of my rights, ability to negotiate an affordable payment plan, and reasonable rates, provided me with the opportunity to gain control of that part of my finances. With his help I now can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Many thanks Adam!
Student loans can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you are just graduating and feeling the weight of the world. Adam was a great support with the initial process, including understanding the loans and the consolidation process. Thanks Adam!
I was referred to Adam Minsky by a Bankruptcy lawyer, who informed me that getting help with student loan debt is near impossible, but that he knew of someone who could help. I was at the end of my rope with frustration and confusion regarding what my rights were, and Adam set everything straight for me. He helped me to understand the laws surrounding student loan debt, and gave me hope when I didn't have any left. WIth his help, I was able to get out of a big financial rut and gain a wealth of knowledge. He is courteous, prompt and really listens to you. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance with student loans in a heartbeat.
Before working with Adam Minsky, I was very confused about the state of my loans but he really helped to clear things up. Also he is very quick when it comes to responding to e-mails and other important matters, I am very glad he does what he does.
Atty Minsky is professional, congenial, responsive and dedicated. He handled my issue effectively and quickly for a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing any kind of student-loan related issues.
Adam is one of the few attorneys in the entire country that knows anything about student loan laws and the programs out there to help borrowers get on track and keep up with affordable payments. This is such a rare but necessary thing.
