Time flies when you’re having fun. This month marks seven years since I went out on a limb and opened my law office devoted to helping student loan borrowers. It’s been an incredible experience. I’ve met hundreds of wonderful people over the years, and I never imagined how impactful this work could be.
To celebrate, I thought it would be interesting to go back and compile some statistics. Here are some of the highlights that I found:
- $16,153,922 in defaulted student loans resolved.
- $8,460,396 in student loans completely eliminated through negotiated settlements, disputes, and discharges.
- Over 1,000 borrowers set up on income-driven repayment plans and other paths to eventual loan forgiveness.
- Over three dozen student loan collection lawsuits dismissed.
It’s been quite a ride – but the work continues. I’m looking forward to it.
