Mr. Martens very successfully defended me against a junk debt buyer Cach LLC and settled my case for less than 15% of what Cach claimed that I owed. Mr. Martens also ensured that I will not suffer any tax consequences and removed the debt from my credit report. Mr. Martens is incredibly knowledgeable, effective and communicative. He responds quickly to my communications and takes the time to ensure that I fully understand the risks and benefits of any actions we planned. In addition, Mr. Martens always looked out for my best interests by recommending the most cost efficient and effective course of action.
In my hour of quiet desperation, I happened upon a PDF file itemizing why I do not want to ignore a summons to address my debt. It was in bullet form; clear and succinct. It got me to think clearly enough to take control and know that all is not lost. I hired the author of that PDF file, Attorney Fred Martens. His experience with predatory debt collectors, mine in particular, resulted in a dismissal and my attorney fees refunded back to me in just under 7 months. I am beyond words. I am most grateful. ("Thank you so much, Mr. Martens." I still say that to this day - in my quiet hours.)
Mr. Martens assisted us with defense against a predatory collector. The matter was resolved in our favor and without judicial involvement. I would recommend Mr. Martens as a consumer's advocate for any debt dispute or improper credit reporting issue.
