I have been working with action advocacy for the last two years. I think in the end it was worth the money I paid them, but I worked with a paralegal the entire time only met with attorney once. The paralegal wasn't overly friendly or helpful so it wasn't a very reassuring experience. Also I still had to do a lot of calls/work myself. They never tried getting anything deleted off my credit report either, they only settled the debts. Didn't feel like they really "fought for me" with these collection agencies. I probably could have just called them and settled with them myself. I learned a lot more with My FICO website than I did paying action advocacy.
We were very happy with David and his staff. They were extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bankruptcy law, and if there were any issues in question, would seek the answers immediately. They were always responsive to telephone calls, scheduled appointments as quickly as possible, and made the entire unpleasant situation as pleasant as possible. He teaches his clients the right way to go about rebuilding good credit through a set of instructional cd's he's made, and keeps in touch with them offering current useful information through an email newsletter. We have the highest respect for David Falvey and his excellent staff.
David was professional, understanding and very very patient during this process. At all times had knowledge of the situation and made this process as smoothly as possible. He had the expertise to handle any glitch that came about.
David genuinely cares for the people who come to his office. Going through a bankruptcy is hard and can be one of the darkest depressing times of your life. David is very knowledgeable and he has a great sense of humor that helps put your situation into perspective. Through Action Advocacy he has developed tools to ensure financial success post bankruptcy such as pennywatchers.org. David is truly a warrior in the war against consumer debt.
Attorney Dave Falvey is certainly the ‘go to’ attorney for bankruptcy in New London County. I was over the median income and owed over $200,000 in credit card debt.
With great patience and determination, Dave carefully gathered my information and he ‘beat’ the Means Test.
He referred me to an attorney who handles harassing phone call cases
because I was being harassed to tears. Well, what was the result? I discharged over $200,000 worth of credit card debt and received a
settlement of over $5,000 from a harassing creditor who wouldn't stop calling me and I kept all the settlement money because Dave was able to exempt it from the creditors. I discharged all my debts and made a ‘profit’.
Further, Dave has given me wonderful materials that he has developed to restore my credit score within 12-24 months post-bankruptcy! And his program that is called, ‘The Pennywatchers’ which challenges youto continue to pay on the debt but you pay yourself and to save all the money that you discharged. I was so depressed before going to see
Dave (I had heard from everyone in Connecticut that he was good) but I had to drag myself to his office in Groton, Connecticut. Thank God!! How do I rate him? 5 Stars, Plus! I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, ethical and fair in his dealings with me and Dave and his office staff in didn’t make me feel like a loser but as someone who was about to succeed. And, indeed, I have completely turned
my life around. I went to see Attorney Dave Falvey and I now I say Hallelujah! I have put my depression behind me and I feel good about myself. “Here Comes the Sun” And I say: HALLELUJAH!!
