Student Loan Lawyer for Default, Settlement, & Forgiveness

September 12, 2018

You're looking for legal advice from a student loan lawyer near Atlanta Georgia. Let me help. I'm an attorney specializing in student loans. I help negotiate private student loan settlements, stop garnishments, and get student loans out of default.

Hey, I’m Tate. I’m a student loan lawyer and I help people throughout Fulton and Dekalb Counties with their student loan debt even though I’m here in St Louis and you live in Atlanta, East Point, Roswell, or Alpharetta

And that’s true no matter what student loan issue you’re facing.

Garnishments. Defaulted student loans. Private student loan settlements.

I can help with all of those things. As far as attorneys specializing in student loans go, I’m pretty good — at least that’s what my clients say about me on Google.

You can get my help with federal student loans

Let me guess:

You got a letter in the mail. It said that your federal student loans are in default and that your wages will be garnished. Or maybe it said your tax refund will be offset for student loans. Or, worse, maybe it said you’ve defaulted on your private student loan and they’re threatening to sue unless you make a large payment.

If any one of those is true, don’t worry. You’re not alone.

Last year, there was over $5.8 billion dollars in first-time federal student loan defaults.

I can help get you of student loan default, stop a wage garnishment, and stop your refund from being taken. But only if you move quickly. I can also help:

  • Choose the right income based repayment plan;
  • Lower monthly payments;
  • Consolidate student loans; and
  • Settle federal student loans (but only if they’re in default)

Finally, I can ensure you’re student debt is eligible for student loan forgiveness programs like the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program and income based forgiveness.

I cannot help with a private student lawsuit in Atlanta

So you know, I am a licensed student loan lawyer. But I have yet to get permission from a court in Georgia to handle lawsuits.

So if you’re being sued for a student loan in a Georgia state court, consider using Google to find “student loan lawyers in Atlanta”.

I am a private student loan settlement lawyer

If you’re in or near Atlanta, and you’re looking for help settling a private student loan, hit me up. I can help with that. I regularly settle student loans for a lot less than what’s owed.

For instance, here’s a private student loan settlement I got last month for a client:

She owed $100 thousand. We settled her private loan for $22 thousand!

Let’s be clear though. Every case is different. And results aren’t guaranteed.
