Mr. Torvik won my case for me. I was not sure where to turn to with Pushpin especially with all of the confusing material found on line until I spoke with Bart. His communication skills are excellent and follows through with all tasks he presents to you as a client. I would highly recommend Bart to represent you.
Like many people I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with Pushpin Holdings and their less than ethical business practices. Bart helped explain the situation, how we would proceed, and how other cases similar to mine played out.
Throughout the process Bart was very responsive to my questions and kept me informed every step of the way. Obviously no one wants to deal with situations such as this but in the end choosing Bart to represent me was the perfect choice. It felt great getting his email saying the case was dismissed with prejudice and no longer needing to worry about Pushpin in my life.
If you get stuck in the same situation I highly recommend Bart for representation.......thanks again Bart!
I live in Texas and Pushpin LLC was trying to sue me and Mr. Torvik took my case and he kept me informed every step of the way. He is a Good Attorney and trustworthy and did everything he said he would and he won my case I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney he is very good and does what he says he will do. Thank you Mr. Torvik for all you did for me.
Mr. Torvik was a pleasure to work with and put us at ease! No one wants to be sued or pay lawyer fees, but Mr Torvik was worth every penny and fought for what is right! Thank you for your services
I am a business owner in Arizona. I was one of the many companies that signed up a lease thru Merchant Masters on POS equipment. After a year we agreed to end the lease and return the equipment, thinking that this automatic debits and fees would stop. Years later I continued to receive collection notices and attempts to sue me for fees associated with the lease. I even had to dispute negative claims on my credit report. After 6 years (the statute of limitation in Arizona for collections), I thought this problem went away. Pushpin Holdings sent notice and filed a case in Illinois, 5 days before Illinois' statute of limitation for collections ran out (which is 10 years). These bottom feeders THOUGHT they could slip in and take over $5K of my money on something that was 10 years old, but thanks to Bart Torvik, they did not succeed.
I am an honest business man, and if I owe a debt I will pay it. Companies like PushPin are not honest. They will use the system to take advantage of small businesses and people who appear to be vulnerable to their tactics, especially people who live out of state and do not know the laws and procedures of the court system. Just because you are sued, doesn't mean you will loose. YOU WILL LOOSE IF YOU IGNORE THEIR COMPLAINT!!! These guys are sneaky, they know how to intimidate and once it is in the system, you NEED to resolve this...it wont go away.
I am cautious about who I hire, especially being out of state. Bart was very informative and professional. He responded right away and was very upfront with the procedure and his fee. He didn't try to brag or boast, and he was honest about the outcome and gave me all the possibilities of what could happen, good and bad. I appreciate his approach and honesty. I felt he would handle this issue with confidence, and I accepted the fact I might loose, but hoped for the best.
After a few months, the trial was set, and then the case was dismissed with prejudice. I could not have asked for a better outcome, or attorney. DO NOT hesitate to contact Bart, no matter were you live. He is truly a professional and he is very knowledgeable about the procedures. DO NOT let PushPin take your money. If you ignore them, they WILL win.
Bart always responded to every call or email I sent and got my case dismissed without an issue. Thank you Bart.
I have been fighting this case for 7 years and when I founderstand torvick, I called and talked to him and assured me that we would win the case. Well, we won the case and now I don't have to deal with them. I called numerous lawyers but torvik had the best price and very knowledgeable about push pin holdings. I recommend anyone dealing with these idiots contact torvick and he will get it done. Again thanks very much for your hard work.
I engaged Bart Torvik at the recommendation of my Alaskan attorney because Mr. Torvik is licensed to practice in Illinois and my attorney (a retired judge) is not. I signed a lease over ten years ago with Vericomm and was assured it was voided because the service did not perform as represented and Vericomm admitted the service was not designed for my type of business (travel agency). After months of trying to resolve the issue and having my account debited, and after reaching an agreement to void the contract, Vericomm apparently sold the contract. My personal credit was affected and this nightmare continued. Pushpin Holdings tried to collect different amounts of money depending on what day they wrote demand letters, either from them or through their sleazy attorney. Look at all of the pages of filings in Chicago associated with Pushpin Holdings. You aren't alone in this and don't have to be. Contact Mr. Torvik for assistance. Do not ignore it, as it won't go away. This is how Pushpin Holdings and their sleazy attorney make their money. Don't let these deceptive people win. You will not be disappointed in Bart Torvik as your attorney. You will be disappointed if you ignore this and let Pushpin win.
The excellent rating is certainly not an exaggeration. Mr. Torvik was so willing to help me when I was in distress because I have been contacted by pushpin holdings and they did file a lawsuit against me. Torvik is extremely knowledgeable with this company. I don't even live in Chicago, but what's Mr. Torvik took over this case I never once was worried because he always stayed in contact with me, and always sent me documents to support everything he said!if you have been contacted by pushpin holding I strongly recommend that you call Mr. Torvik now! If they said they will sue you then they probably will, but that does not mean that they will win. My case was dismissed with prejudice that means I can never come back and open the case again against me. I strongly recommend Bart Sorbic for you also if you are being harassed by pushpin holdings. Don't waste another second of your life stressing about this company, they are treacherous and they do not care about you personally. Call Mr. Torvik I am positive without a doubt that he can help you. I am a Christian woman and I have no reason to lie I'm taking time to do this because I want to help someone who may have been in the same situation that I was a man. I hope this helps, and thank you Mr. Torvik for all that you did for me and my family!
I used to receive calls all of the time from Pushpin Holdings stating that I owed money for credit card machines that I previously had for a dry cleaning business. I had turned the machines in to the company that I leased them from, but somehow Pushpin Holdings received my file and began harassing me. I came so close to just paying the money they said I owed just to get them out of my life. However, I decided to fight them and hired Bart Torvik and he was able to silence them for me. They are nothing but bullies hoping that you will not fight back. I am so glad that I did! Thank you so much Bart. I can now erase these people from my memory.
