Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Terri McGinn became a widow. Barbara Grawien lost her dad, her job, and then her husband had two heart attacks. These are stories of hardship found across the United States, tragedies that caused families to end up in debt they couldn’t control or tackle on their own. They needed help. They needed a lawyer.
They found attorneys who would work with them to protect their assets and settle their debt. These attorneys, who use the support services of Morgan Drexen (http://morgandrexen.com), have now helped settle more than 122,000 accounts helping families across America gain freedom from their credit card debt.
“These attorneys provide legal help at a cost families in financial need can’t normally afford,” said Morgan Drexen CEO Walter Ledda.
“We have worked to create cost-saving efficiencies for the attorneys we support by automating some of the traditional brick-and-mortar legal support services. These efficiencies have permitted attorneys to grow their practice and serve more clients than previously achieved. The benefit to the consumer has been low-cost access to an attorney for a variety of legal services.”
For Terri McGinn of Colorado, attorney Drew Moore was her saving grace when life came crashing down around her.
“That’s all I needed was more people to call me. You know, I had just lost my husband, and yeah, I really need to fight with people about money on the phone, when I don’t know where I’m going to be, or what I’m going to do,” she said.
By the time McGinn’s husband died, she had over $100,000 in medical bills, a $240,000 mortgage and more than $44,000 in credit card debt.
She started a non-formal debt resolution program with Moore, who was able to settle her debt in about three years.
Stories like hers are commonplace nowadays, as people cope with a difficult financial reality, sub-par economy and jobs that don’t pay like they used to. Using an attorney-based non-formal debt resolution program has helped people like McGinn avoid bankruptcy.
Drew Moore received his law degree from Hamline University Law School, graduating cum laude.
After law school, Mr. Moore worked at Colorado Rural Legal Services (formerly known as Colorado Legal Services), which provides free legal assistance to disabled and disadvantaged individuals, during which time his emphasis was in bankruptcy and disability issues. His law firm practice primarily dedicates its efforts to Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.
