About to lose their home with $280,000 in credit card debt…

Unfortunately we cannot provide the name of this client for reasons of privacy and confidentiality

Their spouse had a severe medical problem which they sought to fund with ever-increasing numbers of credit cards. Eventually they ended up with 18 credit cards totalling over $280,000 of debt.

Their family was about to lose their home as creditors had obtained judgement and bankruptcy proceedings had already commenced. Denis was able to negotiate a process which provided the creditors with a repayment, which also included that the debt was reduced by  40% and an agreement was reached that allowed them to pay off the balance with manageable scheduled payments.

Here is that person’s direct description of what happened:

“I was referred to Denis Stollery by a family friend. During our first appointment with Denis I was feeling devastated as we had spoken to so many professional people about our matter, but no-one could see a solution. 

When I informed Denis of my situation, he confirmed what I had been hoping very much to hear; that my family home would be protected. He then went about solving my complex problem over an 8 month period.

Before I met Denis my life was stressful and complex. Now I am enjoying life and family, without the constant financial worries. I have greatly appreciated everything he has done for my family and regard him as a friend for life.”

“My life before I meet Denis was stressful and complex but now I am enjoying life and family, without the constant financial worries.”

…this matter would not have settled amicably, resulting in costly litigation.

Sometimes lawyers will refer clients to Denis because they understand the important skills Denis offers to resolve sometimes complex situations.

Here is a testimonial that was sent to Denis from a respected Adelaide lawyer:

Dear Denis

This letter is to thank you for your services in bringing the dispute between [two referred parties] to a successful resolution. 

Your professionalism was greatly appreciated, as was your continued commitment to working towards the resolution of this matter beyond the scheduled mediation. 

The clients found you to be caring, knowledgeable, accommodating, impartial and skilled in the art of offering insight into the benefits of settlement.

Without your continued efforts, it is very likely this matter would not have settled amicably, resulting in costly litigation.

I would not hesitate to recommend you, based on your skills and your reasonable fees.

Thank you again for your efforts and dedication. I look forward to referring more clients to your practice in the near future.

“…the clients found you to be caring, knowledgeable, accommodating, impartial and skilled”
