I've been struggling for the past year and a half to make sense of a private student loan snafu. I finally decided to swallow my pride and talk to a professional. After paying a very reasonable $150 consultation fee, I scheduled a 30 minute consultation with Jay. His office sent me an email outlining the documents I should have on hand before the consultation, which I appreciated. His secretary called me 24 hours beforehand to confirm our reservation and ensure that I had access to the documents I needed. Within that half-hour, Jay answered every question I had in its entirety, gave me tips for moving forward, and allayed overblown fears of mine. I would (and have) recommended him without reservation to anyone in California who needs help making sense of their student loans. If I ever need help in this area again, he will be the first person I call.

IF you choose to DIY anything I would highly suggest giving yourself PLENTY of time if ever trying to deal with Federal loan servicer(s). Retained Jay (S&F) to arrange for my Loan Rehab. It is my hope all will go smoother now.

TBH I wasn't sure there was any law service out there that really did seek to help former students in dire need of guidance. Then, I stumbled upon Jay's site & watched a couple of his vids.
Jay quickly told me: "don't freak out" about my situation. This was exactly what I needed to hear. Also, he told me what I could do and that I could DIY it. I am applying what tools/language he gave me right now... I can finally see some light at the end of this tunnel.
Big thanks to Jay and Beth!

Jay was extremely professional and truly up front with all of my student loan issues. I was seeking advice on whether or not I should have a law office handle my private student loans because my husband truly felt I was setting myself up for a scam. After Jay went through the numbers and broke down everything this other law office was trying to promise me, I felt so relieved I did not go through with the process and seemed his advice. In addition, he made so much sense as far as a plan to fasten paying off my private student loans and it truly is realistic and made a lot of sense! I am forever grateful for the consultation and I must add, thank you for continuing way over our time allotted.

I paid for a 30 minute consultation with Jay re: a student loan and he was very informative and helpful. We went over the time allowed but there was no extra charge. He put me at ease and gave several very specific actions to take to get a good resolution. I highly recommend Jay!

Jay's the real deal. Understands a very complex world of student loans Federal and Private. Is someone that is ready to help, and I came away with a better understanding of my particular problem. Would highly recommend!

I spoke with Jay about my husband's student debt. He is extremely knowledgeable not only of the law, but also tax and financial elements that came into play as well. I had a baseline level of knowledge going into the call, and rather than dumbing things down or explaining concepts I already understood, he met me right where my knowledge ended which made the call efficient and most helpful. He also was very generous with his time, and had insightful advice about the way dealing with these issues can affect a relationship / marriage. I would highly recommend Jay to anyone in need of this type of service. I believe he had my best interests at heart which is a rare quality to find in a lawyer. Many thanks Jay!

I thought Jay did a great job in answering the questions both my daughter and I had concerning our issues. The fee was reasonable and made me feel more at ease under the circumstances at hand.

Clearly spelled out options and consequences for both student loan repayment and default. Consultation led to a much more focused plan to deal with the debt.
Very knowledgeable and compassionate individual.

Mr. Fleischman was prepared for our consultation by reviewing the information his assistant had collected beforehand, so we were able to get straight into it. As such he was able to very quickly propose a course of action to resolve my situation. He was patient and answered all my questions knowledgeably. He was event accommodating and patient when my toddler kept interrupting during our consultation.
