About Arthur

Learn Arthur’s areas of practice.

I am Arthur Lebedin of Lebedin Kofman LLP, and I am a New York & New Jersey debt relief attorney. Credit cards, student loans, and other consumer debt is a very common element in average life today. Sadly, when these debts get out of hand, or when income is reduced due to various circumstances, minor inconveniences can become overwhelming disasters very quickly. I have assisted many clients in various debt issues, and I have helped clients through the process of bankruptcy. I have seen the effects of tremendous debt loads, and I know how to help my clients. When you choose our firm, you will receive representation that is based on personal attention that each client deserves.

Grateful!
I’m so grateful for Arthur Lebedin & his law firm. They helped my son & I settled his student loan. Everything they said they would do, they did. Katherine handled our case, I can’t say enough about her. She answered all our concerns & was very supportive. She understood the stress we were under & promised results. She went above & beyond. We received a settlement amount that was considerably less than the full balance. Finally after years of struggling we are free from these crippling loans!!! Forever thankful.

Highly Recommended
Saw this law firm online and based on good reviews, I contacted their office and Atty Lebedin called me outright and had given me consulatation for free. I went to his office and Atty Arthur was so gracious listening to my woes with regards to my credit card debts. He’s very knowledgeable of what he does and very professional. Atty Arthur Lebedin and all worked hand in hand as a team to make things right for me sooner than I thought. I paid almost just 1/3 of my debt or $9,200+ discount from the original amount Im supposed to pay! So grateful to be represented by this amazing lawyers esp to Atty. Arthur Lebedin & Atty Stephannie Miranda. My case was resolved in no less time. Needless to say, their professional fees are reasonable and fair. Highly recommended lawyers/law firm. What a relief on my part for this settlement that they negotiated on my behalf. Thank you very very very much.

Highly recommended!
I had such a great experience with Arthur. I was impressed with how quickly he worked on my case and delivered a result that was beyond what I had expected. He responded to all my questions quickly and allayed my worries. I was lucky to have found him and I would definitely consult him again if any future issues arise.

Debt Settlement
I recently had a judgment against me for almost $9,000. I contacted Arthur Lebedin after I read some great reviews about him on the internet and within a few short months he was able to settle my judgement by almost 70%!!! I ended up only having to pay $3,000 of the almost $9,000. They also made it so I could pay installments of only $75 a month till the $3000 is paid off! I will be forever grateful for all the he and his firm has done for me. I highly recommend them!

Cannot thank them enough!
This company was informative from the very start. Before we went into contract they were gracious with information and moved at my pace. When I was finally ready to go head with the settlement they got me a deal in 2 weeks! I owed 30k and paid 9,630k in one lump sum. I cannot thank them enough. My life is finally back on track. What these student loan companies are doing to students and new grads is criminal. With no risk on the banks part (due to the inability to declare bankruptcy) these private banks jack up the interest rates leaving students with a mountain of debt that's impossible to overcome. Without a doubt these companies are exploiting financially niave 18-21 year olds. Thank you Lebedin Kofman LLP for the justice served! Finally I had someone in my corner when I went up against these big banks. I would recommend this firm to anyone I care about in these situations hands down. Thanks again!

Debt settlement gurus
I contacted the law firm after doing a fairly extensive online search for the best debt collection attorneys in NYC. For those who can relate, you cannot run from your debts. In trying to avoid a wage garnishment, I reached out to Lebedin Kofman for help to settle an old debt that had been following me quite some time. From start to finish they were professional and on point. I dealt mostly with an associate attorney and paralegal once I signed the retainer agreement, but they were responsive and took my matter seriously. I never had to wait long for an update - every few days, a week or two at most, I heard some progress on my settlement offer. The embarrassment and sheer dread of having this old debt weighing on me has lifted. I have to pay the debt back, of course, but the settlement terms were reasonable and I avoided a garnishment. I know the law firm fought for me. The attorney's fees are to be expected for the work that they did.

Service Beyond Expectations!
After previously hiring 2 law firms, I had almost lost hope of reaching an affordable settlement for a judgment when I came across the website of Mr. Lebedin. In my first conversation with him, Mr. Lebedin listened attentively and then gave a clear assessment of the case, where he explained several options. Because of his honesty, I hired his firm right away. His legal team updated me on their progress via email during several months of tough negotiations. Mr. Lebedin and his team identified stumbling blocks in the negotiations, which they resolved to get an acceptable settlement agreement. After the creditor received payment, Mr. Lebedin and his team followed through to make sure that the creditor and their counsel honored their part of the agreement. I cannot thank Mr. Lebedin and his staff enough for their commitment and persistence in resolving this case. The associate attorney on the case, Ms. Miranda, was outstanding. I highly recommend Mr. Lebedin and the law firm of Lebedin Kofman LLP.

I could not have asked for better!!!
Attorney Lebedin and his team, especially Stephannie are absolutely AMAZING!!! They performed the impossible and did it at a very fair cost! Because of my situation, time was of the essence! Attorney Lebedin's team understood the pressure I was under and remained calm, patient and reassuring even when I got frazzled. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is facing any type of financial issue and in need of representation. They are hands down THE VERY BEST!!!!

Resolved Debt Judgment Case
Arthur Lebedin and his law firm were very professional and resourceful in helping me to resolve my debt judgment case. I was very happy with the results and services. My spouse defaulted on a Citi credit card during financial crisis when she lost her job. A law firm Rubin & Rothman representing Citi filed a complaint regarding the debt. For over a year, we fought through several court motions and discoveries, unfortunately a summary judgment was granted. Unable to establish communication with the plaintiff or their lawyer, we contacted Lebedin Kofman law firm based on online searches and reviews. Arthur Lebedin was very quick to respond. During initial consultation, he listened to the background history and explained the steps that will be taken to resolve. He kept us informed during the entire process. In the end, he negotiated with opposing lawyer to settle the debt for 60% discount with lump sum payment. Now my spouse's credit is clean and in excellent state. Thank you Lebedin Kofman!

Student loan mess
I hired this firm when I got into trouble with my student loans. They got me a great settlement.

Very satisfied
I met with Mr. Lebedin in person at his offices in dire need of help with a student loan that I cosigned for a family member that was in collection. The law firm suing me had obtained a default judgment without my knowledge and had placed a levy on my personal bank account. He was very personable, professional and attentive. I hired him right after. His team dealt with my situation promptly and diligently. They negotiated a very fair rate for my collection, vacated the default judgement and handled everything to my expectations.

Brought settlement back to original loan amount!
Mr. Lebedin and his associates were wonderful, and patient with handling our case. Our original private student loan amount was around 90 thousand. We were able to settle it for 35 thousand. Justice was served, and Mr. Lebedin and his associates played a big part in that happening. Thanks so much!
