Have you received a demand that you pay a debt you don’t owe, or already paid?

MUSINGS BY DIANE:

Everyone receives calls that are scams.  Most of us see it for what it is – fraud.  But, the most vulnerable do not.  These criminals focus their attacks on our elderly and minorities.  Most are afraid to ask others for advice because they are afraid.  Afraid of what?  The elderly are afraid that their family may take away their freedom to make financial decisions.  The minorities are afraid to appear naive.  Some are afraid to draw any attention because they are undocumented.

Con artists count on these fears.  They don’t care about the consequences of their greed.  They don’t care that their victims don’t sleep at night or have health problems directly related to these snakes.  

What can you do?  Help educate everyone – even those who pretend they know everything (you know who I am talking about :-)).  Subscribe to reports from www.Consumer.FTC.gov/blog.

“You folks are the BEST OF THE BEST in Arizona.” M.H.

You and Jay are the best attorneys I have ever had or needed and thank God for the Honorable Robert Gottsfield in recommending you folks – I would have never made it through the entire process without you and Jay and God Bless you both always and stay in touch as well. You folks are the BEST OF THE BEST in Arizona.

“My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner.” K.H.

I can’t say enough good things about Diane. The way she handled my not typical circumstances was amazing. I was very nervous to start the bankruptcy process but Diane just has a very comforting way of explaining the whole process. My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner. If you find yourself in a financial situation that you can’t correct on your own, please Call Diane Drain as soon as possible.

“Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event” R.A.

Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event, and selecting the right attorney can add to this stress. Diane and Jay were a pleasure to work with, and it is obvious that they are passionate about helping people get their life back on track. I would highly recommend them if you need a bankruptcy attorney.
