Think twice before ignoring unpaid debts

lawyer in a lawyers library

When your debt begins to feel overwhelming, it can be tempting to stop opening your bills. After all, the stress of opening your credit card bills, medical bills and auto loan statements can be extremely taxing. And you may find yourself asking, “What is the point of opening this bill if I can’t pay it?” These feelings are understandable. However, you are likely to do your financial future more harm by ignoring your unpaid credit card debt and other bills than if you choose to remain engaged.

You may feel like you no longer have to address your debt once collectors stop calling you or once they stop sending you bills. However, it is vitally important to address your unpaid debt whether or not you are still receiving communication from collectors. If you cannot pay your bills in full or cannot pay your bills at all, there are still ways you can take action which are preferable to ignoring these debts.

Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for certain forms of debt relief that will allow you to suspend, reorganize or otherwise address your debt payments in manageable ways. You may potentially benefit from filing for bankruptcy protections. Although some of these options may result in some negative financial consequences temporarily, they will likely allow you to regain your financial footing and to have a far brighter financial future than you would if you continued to ignore your debt.

Please understand that if you continue to ignore your debt, you may face serious consequences including wage garnishment and a devastating hit to your credit score. If you are struggling with overwhelming debt and are unsure of what to do about it, please consider contacting an attorney experienced in matters of debt relief.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
