If you are a debtor in Michigan with an underwater home, you'll want to give Alivia a call. A former in-house counsel at a large bank, she understands the process from the bank's perspective, and therefore has the unique ability to negotiate favorable settlements for her clients. I live out of state and have a six-figure salary, but with Alivia's help, I settled a mortgage debt on my Michigan residence with 2 lender/mortgagees for an out-of-pocket contribution of about 3% of the total amount owed. Great job, Alivia!

We retained Alivia when going through a mortgage refi. She and her staff are excellent. They kept us informed and encouraged us to contact them every week either by e-mail or phone so we would be kept up to date. They always returned our calls and answered all our questions and where able to shave many points from our interest rate and got our 2nd mortgage down to a fraction of what we owed.

Because of a divorce and failed investments during the economy downturn, I found myself in a huge financial mess where I could see no way out. Searching online, I read horror stories about those debt settlement companies that advertise all over the internet. But the best piece of advice I read was that if you are even thinking of doing a debt settlement.....hire an attorney who specializes in the process. I searched for one online in my area and found Alivia.
I met with her as soon as I could see no way out for my future financial security, and I can't tell you how important that step was in saving me a lot more money during the process. During that first meeting she gave me a financial list of things to do before we would even start the Debt Settlement process so that I would be on the best possible footing when we began. I followed each of her recommendations step-by-step which took awhile. Then once I was on more secure ground, I hired her BEFORE I could no longer make payments to the Credit Card companies. Because of this, I never received even one debt collection phone call from a single company. The peace of mind that alone gave me was immeasurable.
Carly began the negotiations over the coming months with the card companies, and kept me well informed. One-by-one agreements were reached, settled, and I am now completely debt free. Each settlement total along with the law firm's reasonable fee, saved me a stunning amount of money. I am ever so grateful for finding them, the excellent service I received and for the positive outlook I now have for my future financial security.
The Best Recommendation I can give anyone even considering a debt settlement is to call Alivia as soon as you feel you may be in financial trouble and not to wait until you are.

I called Attorney Arabo after getting sued for a debt. She immediately returned my called, setup an initial meeting, took the time to explain everything (the contract, process, payments, etc.) to me, and never pressured me into signing with her. However, I felt so comfortable with her, as I never needed a lawyer before, that I did employ her services. She handle the case with professionalism and integrity, ask me to stay in contact with her and assistant (I chose email), and I had a very favorable result because of her work. I highly recommend. Hopefully I never need her services again (settling a debt), but if I do, I wouldn't hesitate to use her.

I cannot say enough great things about Alivia and Carly. They are incredible. My husband and I had used a different company to try to short sale our home. The short sale was denied and the company pretty much left us out to dry. Feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to turn we came across Alivia's website. We were able to make an appointment with her at our convenience and she quickly put our minds at ease. We began the short sale process again and Alivia and Carly stayed in contact with us the entire time. They were both extremely helpful and answered all the questions we had along the way. They assured us every step of the way that they were here to help and would do everything they could. Alivia ended up being able to get our short sale approved but even if that weren't the outcome she assured us that she would help us no matter what the outcome was. As I said, I cannot say enough great things!!!!

After getting poor advice from one legal group, our bankrupcy trustee recomended we find a Lawyer who has a working background in both bankrupcy and real estate issues. We found that person in Alivia Arabo. She and her staff went to work solving our mortgage issues with our lender and assisted in getting our Chapter 13 bankrupcy dismissed. After submitting the "Making your home affordable" paperwork five times to our mortgage company, she helped them get the message, straight away.
On our first meeting with Alivia, my wife and I were confident we found a person that would get the results we needed to save ownership of our home. The stress level droped 90% that day for us. Within three months, she and her staff had accomplished a job another firm couldn't in six months. The relief for my wife and I is beyond incredible. We can get on with our lives stress free.
I can't thank them enough for keeping us in our home, right where we belong.

After doing an extensive amount of homework in order to find an attorney that could successfully negotiate a short sale on my home, I was fortunate to find Alivia. I was relocated for work and severely under water on my home. My mortgage was with a smaller bank, and in turn, not as willing to agree to a short sale. Alivia did an awesome job with everything and only discussed the important things with me. At first I was concerned with this, but as I got to know her, I arrived at 100% trust in her which allowed me sleep comfortably at night.
I also quickly determined that integrity and respect were top on her list. She made it very clear right from the start that everything would be black and white with absolutely no grey areas in between.
Keep up the good work Alivia….
