Friendly, Efficient, and Knowledgeable
I reached out to Simon regarding a collections issue, unsure of the steps I would need to take to get the charges removed from my credit report. He responded promptly via email with detailed information and the steps I would need to take - FOR FREE - to get these items removed from my report. I am grateful for his time and for saving me time/ headaches trying to resolve this properly. If you have any time-sensitive issues I would recommend reaching out to him. He responded to my inquiry quickly and personally and did not try to persuade me to hire him, but I would have if I needed to. Strongly recommend for good business practice, helpful advice, and for a referral if your case is not relevant to his practice.

Great Service
Simon was very professional and helpful in resolving my debt issue. I did not know it was possible to get a court summons for debt and the stress and shock of it weighed me down. I am glad I found this firm and for their professional service. He negotiated a fair payment plan and dealt with the other side so I didn't have the stress of dealing with all the paperwork or court things.

Exceeded expectations!
I had a student loan go in to default a few years ago and had not heard anything about it until they served papers notifying of a lawsuit for the balance. I had reached out to the Law office of Simon Goldenberg for assistance as I understood they’ve handled cases like this before. Thanks to them, we were able to settle for 75% less than what was originally demanded and truly lifted a great weight off my shoulders! I can’t thank them enough for the work that they did.

A Gem of a Debt Settlement Attorney!
Simon is an excellent attorney in this field. He is talented, professional and very kind. When I spoke to him for the first time, I knew right away he was the one for the job. He listened then explained the process in a very easy way to understand, offered strategy options and presented realistic solutions to consider without intimidation. The whole experience throughout the process with him was very pleasant. He had helped me settle a huge debt with a major bank in a couple months, for less than the amount I actually owed even after the service fee, then negotiated a very comfortable payment plan that I didn't think I needed, but turned out it really helps me to have better quality of life at present time. After this case, he also helped me negotiating another small debt with a collector for no fee, if we can settle without having to represent me in court, since the debt was a small amount that I would perhaps end up paying the same amount for his contingency fee, and everything worked out. That was very kind and generous, really appreciated it. I am now free from all debts! There was a time in my life that I made mistakes financially and Simon helped me to have that second chance in life. I can't say thank you enough and highly recommend Simon Goldenberg for debt settlement matters. He is the best!

A lawyer for the people
I engaged Simon Goldenberg to help me reach a settlement with credit card debt. He is courteous, communicative and honest. I found him to be humane and decent. His fee was reasonable, and well worth the cost. He reached a settlement for me which I am completely satisfied with. I have the impression, which is purely my own conjecture, that Simon Goldenberg is not only a good lawyer but someone who cares deeply about being an advocate for common people. I highly recommend him.

I am very thankful to Mr Simon, he knows how to deal with stubborn finance companies and got me out of a 20K Jam with Orion & On Deck Capital. He stood up to the plate and handled the situation thoroughly. The guy's a fighter.

Upfront about fees. Upfront about retainer. To the point and followed thru every step of the way. Brought me the settlement offers and listened to why I would take it or why I wouldn't. Always came back with what I asked for.
