Hotel Bartender with $17K in Debt Settled for Less

We recently helped a debtor who had over $17,000 in debt. Our client was a hotel bartender whose case was heard in Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas. Unfortunately, he had several other past due accounts, some of which were with the creditor and some of which were being handled by collection agencies.

Our client did not dispute owing the money. We argued that our client’s low income would mean the creditor would get very little from garnishment unless they settled. We attended one court date on our client’s behalf, and the debt settled at $7,000 from the original balance of $17,482.82 owed to American Express.
