Jay really knows his stuff. His knowledge and understanding of how to assist someone struggling with student loans is worth his weight in gold. If you find yourself struggling with a student loan problem, do yourself and call Jay ASAP.
Very helpful and knowledgeable about the considerations of my specific bankruptcy issues, and sensitive to the fact that there is a whole complex of factors of which bankruptcy and debts are only a part. Asked all the right questions to elicit info about my debts, assets, tax situation, possible resolution of debts without bankruptcy. Gave helpful advice about possible complications. Identified probable costs assuming nothing unexpected or more complicated than I described.
Very sensitive demeanor to the fact that these are difficult subjects for me to discuss.
Definitely I'm going to the in-person consultation.
Mr. Fleischman was very patient and listened to all my concerns regarding possibly filing for bankruptcy, As a senior citizen I had some questions as to my social security. pension and IRA. He talked me through what to expect and eased my fears.
I've never been sued before and was nervous to find a lawyer to help. I contacted Mr. Fleischman's office for a consultation. Over the hour, he walked me through exactly what would happen with my case, explained the ins and outs of it all, and made it really simple to understand. Mr. Fleischman was able to settle my case and substantially lower my debt, and all I had to do was sit back and relax. Hire him today, you won't regret it!
Jay Fleischman was completely honest. He gives you options even the options he himself disagrees with. He offers his services 24/7 via email, phone or text. His secretary will answer any questions or concerns you might have, and if an answer can not be given immediately contact will be made with Jay to get an answer. I felt as if Jay was not just out for the money but to truly help me as his client to make sure he can help me now and in the future.
I had a little hiccup with Sallie Mae, Navient, and Windham that could have potentially turned into a huge nightmare. However, with some expert advice through a one hour consultation from Jay, and I've ironed things out. Best money spent!
I was feeling overwhelmed about my student loans. Having just filed bankruptcy, I didn't know how to handle the $168K+ in outstanding student loan debt. Jay offered wonderful guidance.
Jay is extremely knowledgeable, articulate and caring. However, I was most impressed with his unique approach to sharing legal advice which manifests a conscious and obvious effort not to waste your time or resources. Contrast that to the more typical approach which is oblivious to draining your wallet. Both ethically sound, but which would you prefer.
In one consultation Atty. Fleishman gave me explanations of all the options to defer my school loan payments until I get a job. The option I selected allows me to make no payments until I start work . It has been such a relief that I now sleep well for the first time since I graduated.
My wife co-signed on a student loan which her son defaulted on and she received a summons on the amount owed. We learned of Jay's services and made an appointment to talk with him. He called exactly when he said he would and answered all of our questions. He is tremendously knowledgeable and an excellent listener. He gave us excellent advice. I would highly recommend Jay.
