I have been practicing law since 1998. I started as a collection attorney, handling insurance subrogation cases for the most part.  Finding it very non-fulfilling, I switched sides and began to practice consumer law.  I started with vehicle Lemon Law cases in 2005 and then branched into credit card lawsuit defense about a year later.

 

My office currently handles 35-40 credit card defense cases per month, along with approximately 15 FDCPA claims (claims where we sue the debt collector for violation of collection laws).

No Doubt The Best Around
I sent a request to Mr. Artim over a weekend and he actually emailed me back!! I have never had a lawyer contact me on a weekend when they are supposed to be enjoying their time off. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the specific company I had an issue with and was able to resolve my problem within 10 days. I cannot stress that if you have any issues with a debt collector whether it’s your debt or not yours Mr. Artim is the go to guy. If I ever have an issue again he will be the first person I contact. Thank you again for all your help!! ;)

Prime Consumer Law Attorney
Represented my case as though it was his personal court issued problem. My fear of being sued was diminished within my initial consultation with Greg Artim. His explanation of my consumer rights, the legal process I was facing, the patient answers to all my questions and the expected outcome convinced me of his professionalism, wealth of knowledge and court experience skills with this type of case. Thankful, I placed my case with his representation, he consumed it and was true to his word. I highly recommend and for future representation #1 choice.

Successful Outcome! Great Attorney and Staff
When I was plagued by a debt collector who was taking me to court, Greg Artim instantly took care of my fears. Not only did he take care of my case, he did it swiftly, calmly and he won! His staff treated my professionally, were quick to answer my emails and were very considerate with my desire for privacy.

Positive Experience Despite Negative Circumstances
When a bank attempted to obtain a judgment against me for a defaulted private student loan, Greg was the ONLY lawyer who was even willing to continue speaking with me after I uttered the phrase "student loan." Not only did Greg successfully get the case dismissed in a few months, but I even received cash back in the form of a settlement. Greg is a very competent, knowledgeable professional. He spent a great deal of time on the phone with me during the initial consultation, ensuring that I understood the process, possible timeframe, and potential outcomes. After taking my case, he was very prompt in responding to my questions and concerns over the phone and via email. I am SO glad I found Greg. Should you find yourself in a similar situation, I highly recommend him.

Top rate attorney !
We found Greg online and sent an email about our legal issue. He actually responded to us during a holiday weekend. Greg worked with the collection company to reach a settlement better than we had even imagined. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and kept us informed every step of the way. We highly recommend his services.

Greg Artim is an AMAZING lawyer !!!!!
I'm speechless how good this attorney is at what he does. Unfortunately due to my situation, I had to hire Greg Artim quite a few times and he "hit it out of the park" every time. At least twice, after being served with a notice to appear in front of a Magistrate, the credit card company simply withdrew their complaint the moment they learned I hired Greg Artim. In two other cases when collection companies were involved and they sued me, Greg successfully defended me, and no money was ever awarded to these collection companies! But the biggest issue I had was with Discover Card. The debt here was pretty significant and Discover Card would not go away. Unlike my other cases, I had to go through some discovery and requests for admissions. In all this case was pending for at least 2 years I believe. At no time was I bothered by Discover as I had retained Greg Artim as my attorney. ----- Then one day I received notice from Greg that he won my case against Discover Card and he then gave me all the documentation I needed to remove Discover's debt from my credit report !!!! I was simply stunned by the results !!! I'll be honest, I hate lawyers. And I've dealt with quite a few of them in my time. But I love Greg Artim !!! Greg Artim is the REAL DEAL folks !!! I only wish he practiced in other areas cause I would have used him more if I could. I knew something was up when credit card companies would simply withdraw their complaints, but I never imagined Greg Artim slapping Discover Card around like he did. I'm shocked! And I'm incredibly thankful for Greg Artim's help. Thank you Greg! ZT

Highly Recommend!!
I came across Mr Artim's website while panicking about a civil lawsuit by not 1 but 2 debt collection companies against me. Figured a phone call couldn't hurt his website is very informative and explains different issues very well. Upon calling was calmed by Mr. Artim as he explained everything to me on how things work. I live 70 miles away he said no problem that he would handle my case. And handle it he did, winning both cases in the same day! Collections were removed from my credit reports and my score jumped up from poor to fair! If you need an attorney for these type of matters call him you will be glad you did.

Very helpful
I am currently working with him on a lawsuit from an old collections account. He seems to be on the ball with what needs to get done. I have only talked to him once on the phone, and through a few emails, but he seems very helpful and I look forward to having this resolved.

True Meaning of the word Counselor
I was in a panic. A creditor had frozen my bank account. I didn't know what to do or how to proceed. Frantically, I searched the web and came across Atty. Artim. I emailed him and he responded almost immediately. We emailed back and forth and he was able to put my mind at ease and resolve my issue within a few days. Believe me, attorneys like this are rare! I am so glad that I found him and am at peace knowing that I can contact him if I need to. A+

Efficient, accurate and professional
I first got in touch with Greg about a year ago regarding a claim by a debt buyer. He took care of everything within days. He explained my rights, what could happen from where we were in the situation and was very specific and accurate. He followed up with me recently to close up a claim and the experience has been the same - efficient, accurate and professional. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs help with consumer debt.

Gets the job DONE !
We called Greg to handle a credit card settlement dispute with a debt buyer. He collected the information quickly and settled our case within 30 days ! He's very efficient and fast. Highly recommend Greg !!!!!
Posted by Jennifer | July 23, 2014
Would recommend
I inquired with a few law groups about my claim. Greg was the only one that explained the process, returned emails promptly and let me know I had a case and what to expect from the beginning. Even though we are hundreds of miles away from each other I felt the "personal" touch with him and never felt like he was just in it for himself. I felt like he had my best interest in mind.

Lost , confused and paranoid
As with others my wife was being sued by a debt collection agency (Port _ _ _ _ o) and she had just received a certified letter to appear in court because she was being sued for a few thousand dollars. Not knowing what to do I went online and was trying to write a letter to the lawyers representing the debt collection agency to negotiate a settlement. I spoke to a local lawyer and they said it was a bad idea to try to negotiate on my own and I should get a lawyer or I could make a real mess of things. Now I was really confused and didn't know what to do. No way did I have the money to make a full settlement so I went online and found Greg Artim. After reading all the reviews I decided to give him a try. Boy that was the best thing I ever could do!!! I started with an e-mail to him on Sept 11, 2013 and by Oct. 18, 2013 the case was settled and I will be getting money back!!! How sweet is that. Greg Artim and Clay Morrow did a GREAT job for me, guiding me each step of the way and always in touch with me and answering all my questions and telling me just to "sit back" and they will do the work. Now after almost 4 years of harassing phone calls my phone is silent. Also my wife had 2 other credit cards that I had to deal with and since one of them was the same debt collector as the first one both cases were settled together. Now I just have to have Greg and Clay work on the 3rd and last debt collection lawyers. Boy did I get lucky finding them. I am a senior citizen on a very fixed income that lost my job which led to the circumstances where my wife couldn't pay the bills. Greg and Clay come highly recommended by me with a "thumbs up"for total satisfaction and really quick results. If you are thinking about hiring them stop thinking and just do it! They are sincere,courteous and really on your side and know the laws so are best equipped to help you. If I would have known about them sooner I could of avoided all the debt collection phone calls and slept better a few years sooner.

Terrific Advocate
For anyone with a credit agency/debt collection related matter, Mr. Artim is the very best. He resolves the matter. He is one of the few attorneys that I respect. He does what he says he is going to do and then he does it. I had an exception experience with him. Most of all, I trust him.

Greg was great, he handled my case perfectly. He fought the debt buyer and kicked their a**, from conversation #1 he talked to me straight, in words I could understand.

5 STARS ALL THE WAY! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
We had been going through a lot of stress with a credit card debt that was bought by a junk debt buyer. We had a lot of very rude phone calls and mail over several months. They sued us in our local common court, with the sheriff coming to our door with the papers. They threatened possibly attaching our bank account and to put a judgement against us. The hearing was approaching fast. I thought about fighting the arbitration junk debt lawyers by myself at the hearing. I started to think that may be a bad idea. I prayed about it and started searching online for a lawyer. I came across Artim & Morrow law firm and for some reason kept going back to it after reviewing many others. I knew after I spoke with Greg a few times that I must put my trust in them. They were very sufficient on getting back to us on any questions and kept us very well informed along the way. Greg & Clayton are very trustworthy, and very intelligent about the credit card laws. Folks NEVER respond to a debt buyer without a lawyer. The money we spent to hire them was well worth it! They won our case! We got our money back that we paid them and some. I was very skeptical at first because this was the first time that we ever have done this. After they won our hearing, I even called our local court house to make sure that I wasn't waking up from a dream.Trust me they are true!!!! We were very impressed by this firm and their knowledge. Never fight a credit card lawsuit without them.

The best attorney in Pennsylvania.
I have had the extreme pleasure and fortune of the services of Clayton Morrow and Gregory Artim. Several years ago, we had a major life tragedy occur, making payment on our credit cards difficult. The CC companies had turned the accounts over to collection agencies. Two collection companies proceeded legally to collect through the District Magistrate. While on line, I saw information Gregory Artim posted regarding collection agencies. I emailed him and he promptly responded. Mr. Artim talked with me, was honest, listened without judging, and made me believe there was hope. He obtained our information and handled our case quickly and successfully. The second agency was a collection agency of the original lender. Morrow and Artim again represented us and the case was dismissed as it was filed in the wrong District court. We were then represented to bring suit against them for wrongful filing and we won a monetary amount. It was refiled correctly, and again Morrow and Artim represented us successfully. Morrow and Artim are highly competent. They corresponded with us regularly, always returned calls/emails, and gave us honest answers. I do not believe any other attorney would have been as efficient, reliable, and competent. Words are not enough to describe the excellent service that was provided, let alone the emotional relief. In both cases, Morrow and Artim were successful. I am and always will be their biggest fan.

I Highly Recommend Mr. Artim
It is very stressful when debt collectors call and try to intimidate you. I wasn't sure where to turn. When I found Mr. Artim's website and filled out a request for information, he was quick to get back to me and gave me an honest, easy to understand explanation of what my rights were. He was easy to communicate with and kept me abreast throughout my case.

"Greg is one of very few attorneys with significant knowledge in the area of consumer protection law. I know him from our mutual attendance at the annual conference of the National Consumer Law Center. This organization hosts the premier nationwide conference that is designed to educate attorneys as to how to protect consumer rights. His attendance at important seminars such as the NCLC’s demonstrate his commitment to this area of the law. Additionally, his website indicates that he focuses his practice on consumer rights issues. Such a narrow focus is critical to gain a high degree of competence in this very specialized area of the law."
