If you owe a large amount of money on unsecured debts, you may require the services of a debt settlement lawyer. Unsecured debts include medical bills, student loans, credit cards, store and gas cards, personal loans, collection accounts, and bounced checks.

A debt settlement attorney can negotiate with the lender and objectively present the facts in your case.

If the negotiation is successful, the creditor may even be convinced to take the settled debt off your credit history.
