Navient Loan
Had issues trying to keep up with the high increase of my Navient Private Student Loan due to only paying interest and hardly any principle for the loan. I tried calling Navient to see if there was anything they could do for me, the result was unsuccessful. I kept getting harassing calls from Navient once I stopped making my payments due to being unsuccessful with negotiating anything with them and trying everything else(calling for possible reconsolidating, etc) I came across Simon Goldenberg’s website and gave them a call. Once we talked, I knew this was the right place for me and got reassured right away the problem would get fixed with a little patience on my end. After getting threatening letters and rude phone calls from Navient, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. My original quote for a settlement was 23,000, Simon was able to get it down to around 14. What a huge difference. Save yourself the aggrevation with trying to deal with company’s like Navient over the phone and try giving Simon a call, you won’t regret it. If I run into any more financial hardship, I know I could count on these guys for help. Thanks again Simon law team!’

Recommended Lawyer
Simon is an excellent and brilliant lawyer for his specialty. I explained my situation to him and he knew that time was extremely critical on my end. He assured me that he can resolve it because he’s been working on these cases many times before. He worked with me step by step and constantly giving me updates on what was happening during the process; he answers all my emails and calls promptly like he working on my case only. Results: He got everything settled and done extremely quick! He made sure time sensitive means being extra persistent on his end.

A Truly Wonderful Lawyer Who Helped Change My Life
Simon is a truly wonderful lawyer and person. He helped me resolve a very, very large private student loan debt (an amount most can never imagine) that would have burdened me for life and I am not even 40 y/o. Now because of him I am working beyond my past financial issues and have a clear path to financial freedom when I thought there was no chance. Not only did he obtain me a wonderful result on the merits but he worked with me on his payment arrangement as well. I would without hesitation recommend this man. 100% worth a call to discuss your financial issues. He cares about you as a person, not just a statistic or another case. Truly never met a lawyer like him. A diamond in the rough. Best of luck to all! Get Simon - it can change your life. Thank you so much, Simon!

Fantastic Law Firm
Simon and his associates always treated my case as if it were the only thing they had work on that day, with personal interest in how I was doing. Using his knowledge of the law he was able to give me all of my options and then together we decided on a path to proceed!

Sharp, Professional, and Helpful
I had successfully run my business for 15 years, all of them profitable and without any loans or paying a penny in interest. Then lock-downs came and I had a figurative gun to my head: either take on debt in the form of an EIDL from the SBA or watch my cash reserves continue to dwindle without knowing when I'd be able to operate again. I chose the former, and it kept me alive and allowed me to retain my excellent staff. Now the bill is due and we're still only at 50% of where we were before (even with most of the competition already out of business) and inflation has hit us hard. The government couldn't care less about the situation they put people like me in, they just want all their money back or else. In looking for help, it seemed like every attorney/SBA advisor/guru out there was short on specifics and just want to slowly bleed you of whatever money you have left. Mr. Goldenberg was the opposite - very helpful and knowledgeable in options right up-front the others didn't even mention. His staff was compassionate of the full weight of my situation: it's not just about the loan, it's about potentially losing a business I worked so hard in and figuring out how I will be able to provide for my family. Mr. Goldenberg lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. It's still going to be a long and hard road ahead, but I have hope now. Thank you.

Discover card law suit
From the initial phone call the staff and Mr. Goldenberg were more then professional and caring. They made this process extremely quick and easy. I’ve never met any of them personally. I only spoke to them on the phone and via email but I feel like we have been working together for years.

He Takes the Time to Listen
I reached out to Mr. Goldenberg for assistance with a landlord-tenant related case. Although this was outside the scope of his services, he still took the time to listen to all the details of my case so that he could (a) let me know if it was worth pursuing and (b) give me a referral as to who could best assist.

Great Experience
I was looking for and prepared to hire an attorney to look into and handle a debt judgment made against me, and when I called Mr. Goldenberg's office, not only did he pick up the phone himself, but he gave me a consultation on the spot and was honest enough to advise that I didn't need his services to remedy my situation. I really appreciated his candor and willingness to deal straight with me vs. taking on my case just to make some money. That goes a very long way in my book - at least one other larger firm wouldn't even return my calls. Integrity and professionalism are everything, and I will definitely start with Mr. Goldenberg in the future if I need legal assistance in his practice area in the future.
