What Types of Student Loan Cases Do You Handle?

Our lawyers are committed to helping clients resolve their debt issues.

We can take on any of the following student loan cases:

  • Federal Student Loans: Federal loans are closely regulated. We can review the details of your case to determine the best strategy for resolving your debt.
  • Private Student Loans: Loans that have been taken from a private financial institution are much different than loans taken out through the Federal Student Loan Program. Private loans have limited options for repayment, but our legal team can help you negotiate new terms for repayment.

Can Claiming Bankruptcy Eliminate My Student Debt

Although you can’t discharge your student loan debt in bankruptcy except in certain very strict circumstances, where you have to prove undue hardship. Reducing student loan debt is different than discharging other forms of debt, which is why you should have an experienced lawyer assess the details of your case. We can help you reduce your student debt loan payments outside of bankruptcy. You have options available to you.

How Do I Prove Undue Hardship?

If you can prove that you have experienced “undue hardship,” you might be able to have your student loans forgiven.

Examples of undue hardship include:

  • You have a disability that is keeping you from working
  • You are on a fixed income without the possibility of a salary increase
  • You have family related issues that are keeping you from earning a living.
