Westchester, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
Debt can easily spiral out of control when personal loans, credit-card balances and household bills start to pile up. Now available for expanded assistance throughout Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties are The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne, which announced new branches in White Plains and Mount Kisco, N.Y.
With more than a decade of experience negotiating with large national banks, credit unions and collection agencies, Leslie H. Tayne has already helped thousands of people settle their debts for a fraction of what they owed. In fact, clients typically settle for 38 to 42 percent less.
Headquartered in Melville, N.Y., The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne (http://www.attorney-newyork.com) is the only New York State practice whose sole specialty is consumer debt resolution.
“Debt can accrue over many years, but I’ve helped countless people climb out of it entirely within three to five years. Some solutions can even have an impact in just a few months,” Tayne said. “The goal is to educate clients on how to manage their finances so they can live a life free of debt.”
Debt problems can happen to people with the best intentions, especially during a time of transition. Deepening debt is common among senior citizens on fixed incomes, small business owners with cash-flow issues, married couples facing divorce, caregivers, or anyone who is struggling to make ends meet. Tayne is equipped to handle debt ranging from $5,000 to more than $300,000.
In addition to providing public-speaking appearances and consultation services to companies and labor unions, Tayne offers personal, one-on-one service to clients with the assistance of in-house, top-of-the-line technology. She also educates them through her newsletter, “In The Know,” as well as her accounts on Twitter (@LTayne) and Facebook (search for “Law-Offices-Leslie-H-Tayne”).
Tayne’s top tips include:
- Try to avoid bankruptcy, which can have serious repercussions, such as the difficulty of earning credit for the next 10 years or damaging your chances of employment.
- Protect your credit annually by reviewing credit reports from all three agencies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.
- Consider a debit card (rather than a credit card) to help with budgeting and spending.
Tayne’s open-door policy also keeps the process stress-free; unlike most law firms, hers encourages clients to stay in contact without being charged extra. “Debt is hard enough on people,” she says. “Solving my clients’ debt problems is my top priority, but I also want to give them peace of mind.”
The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne are located at the following addresses: 150 Broadhollow Road, Melville, N.Y.; 445 Hamilton Avenue, White Plains, N.Y.; and 100 S. Bedford Road, Mount Kisco, N.Y.
