I contacted Ian Chowdhury a few days after I was served and found out I was being sued by a collection agency. I was afraid and didn’t know what to do. Initially, I was going to represent myself or try to work with the agency, but after reading a lot online I realized that would be unwise. Just recently divorced I could not go through all the documents and court system again. In addition, I was embarrassed and in a fragile state. After scheduling my free consultation, Ian called me right at the scheduled time. He was caring, nonjudgmental, and knowledgeable about taking on the collection agencies. He did not make any guarantees that my case would be dismissed, but he convinced me that he would fight for me. From that point we communicated through email, he would give me updates and I would ask questions from time to time, but for the most part I could relax and go on with my life without losing any sleep. Ian also allowed me to pay in payments which I am so grateful for. After four months, I found out that my case was dismissed and I owed nothing. Ian is the real deal! If you are in a hard financial situation and need help, Ian will help you and not rip you off.

I was served by collection agency CACH for an old account and was overwhelmed by it all. I found Ian when I was researching steps to take to deal with the courts regarding this matter. I called him and he immediately put me at ease by explaining the process, my options, his experiences (both personal and professional) with this issue and how these companies work. He also let me know that I had time to make an informed decision. He was in constant communication about motions and the next steps during the whole process. My particular case was dismissed, but even if the outcome had been different, I know Ian would have helped reach a favorable resolution. I am extremely happy with his service!

Ian assisted me with a collection agency. He was spot on and pleasure to work with. Usually circumstances of the degree can be very stressful and expensive. However, I found Ian to be highly professional, patience, and informative. I highly recommend him for any collection needs.

Ian has been a steadfast defender of the consumer in debt defense cases for at least a decade if not more. He has been a very impressive attorney to witness advance the cause of consumer cases in seemingly intransigent courts. He has also pushed beyond on appeals for his clients.
