Great experience.
I have debts in student loans, court costs and collection agencies, they are all coming after me at the same time, me being recently released from prison 2 months ago, it is a lot to take in right now. I'm currently at a homeless shelter just trying to make it in the world and Michael is making this dream of living a normal life come true, he was very professional and added a personal touch to this experience. I would recommend him to friends and family if ever in need of help, thank you for your time and consideration.
