    Highly recommended for dealing with debt collectors

    I've recently had the pleasure of being represented by Attorney Kimmel and wanted to write a review to let others know about the great service he provides. If you are being harassed by debt collectors this is the guy to call. One call to Kimmel and Silverman is all it takes to turn the tables on the debt collectors. I am more than pleased with all that Attorney Kimmel and the other attorneys at Kimmel and Silverman did for me, it was literally amazing, I wish I would have knew about him years ago. The best part: no upfront fees, not one dime came out of my pocket as he worked on contingency for me. Very effective and I am very pleased. Thank you Mr. Kimmel and the others at your firm that helped me as well. Your work is greatly appreciated.

    Thank You!!!

    Craig Thor Kimmel’s response: “Thank you for the review and kind words. We pride ourselves on representation of people like you entirely free since 1991. I do want to clarify that we do not charge clients for Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) claims because the debt collector must pay all fees and costs by law. We do charge a contingency fee for Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) claims as fee recovery is unavailable under the current wording of the statute.”

    Great work!

    Mr. Kimmel did a great job helping me get a settlement from a debt collector who was harrassing me! I thought I would never be able to press my case, because I was unable to get my phone records for personal reasons. Even without the phone records, he was able to get me a settlement! Great job!

    Professional, Knowledgeable, Understanding, Compassionate

    Attorney Craig Kimmel recently assisted me with a problem involving a debt collector. I was extremely anxious when I received both a call and letter from the debt collector; however, Mr. Kimmel took the time to speak with me several times both on the phone and via e-mail to provide legal advice, guidance and assistance to me to help me satisfactorily resolve the problem. Mr. Kimmel was nothing less than outstanding in the services he provided to me and without his services I could not have resolved my problem. He is an outstanding, professional, knowledgeable, understanding and compassionate attorney and person. I am very greatful to Mr. Kimmel for his help.

    Excellent Representation, Quick Results

    I have retained Mr. Kimmel on three separate occasions when debt collectors were harassing me for a third party's debt. He got the harassment to stop and resolved the cases quickly for me. I was very pleased with the results he obtained and would highly recommend him in the future.

    Something was wrong & Craig figured it out!

    Having used Craig's firm for two lemon law claims in the past, I already knew what the firm was capable of. So, when I received a letter from a debt collector asking for hundreds of dollars to clear up a past utility bill from years ago, I reached out to Craig to see what I needed to do. Something did not seem right.

    He advised me to call the utility company and find out out the actual debt, which was roughly 10% of what the collector was asking for. He told me to pay the debt and get a copy of the cancelled check. He then advised me to contact the collector to let them know the debt was paid. It was after another letter arrived from the collector saying I owed MORE money that Craig said I had a case. I submitted a narrative, a copy of the letters received, and a copy of the cancelled check. Craig called me to go over the facts and told me it would take a little while, but he would get back to me.

    I'd say four months later, Craig called to inform me that he had settled and I was receiving the $1,000 maximum settlement for the violation. I asked if I needed to pay him and he told me that his fees would be covered on top of that.

    Once again, Craig's firm came through for me, righting a wrong, and for that, I am most grateful.

    Shop around

    It took a year to even get an answer from anyone at this firm about my case. Then when they got me a settlement, they took 3 fifths of it for them just basically making two phone calls or emails? The last time that I checked the standard attorneys fee was one third of the settlement. And that usually entails some actual work & negotiations also. Also other attorneys that I have used in the past have called me and kept me informed about what was happening with the case. In this case I called many times and was never told anything about anything because nothing was going forward with the case until I persisted in calling more frequently and demanding answers. I think that is not right, and also feel that my share of the entire settlement should have been more than the firm took.

    Craig Thor Kimmel’s response: “I welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns you or any other client has and always invite questions in every communication with clients and never settle a case unless my client is first spoken with by telephone and then receives a confirming email detailing the entire agreement. Having said that, and if indeed this is a comment from a client, please recall that you did not pay attorney fees or costs at all, and we did not sign your case on a contingency either. Our fee agreement, explained to you at the outset of the case specifies this, and the client signs the agreement before we can get started. We also explain that in the best of all worlds, the maximum FDCPA recovery is $1,000 but that you likely will have to go to court and/or give a deposition to recover that, unless the debt collector makes an offer of judgment for the full amount. In addition to the client's recovery, a debt collector must pay all attorney fees and costs, not our client. If you do not recall what the agreement says, I wish you would have asked me and I would have explained it again. Clients don't pay my fees. And if the maximum you can recover is $1,000, but you don't wish to participate by giving a deposition or going to court, we often counsel clients what we can recover without those steps and leave it up to them to accept or reject. But to say on this site or any other that I/we "took 3 fifths" of the settlement is neither fair nor accurate to those reading your comments. Again, I invite you to call me at 800-668-3247 ext 148 to discuss any concerns you have, as I want satisfied clients above all else. I am certain that any disappointment you feel can be addressed to your complete satisfaction with one phone call.”
