Debt Settlement (561) 676-4049

If your credit card balances have grown to unmanageable levels and you face a lifetime of minimum monthly payments, contact the Tribuiani Law Firm and speak with an attorney who can help you acheive financial freedom and accomplish your goals.

Negotiated Settlement

If you have accumulated excessive levels of credit card debt and cannot make your minimum monthly payment, contact us to speak with an attorney about negotiating a settlement (Negotiated Settlement) that will allow you to pay off your credit cards and avoid bankruptcy. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the more likely you are to settle your debts for less than the full balance owed. If you think that your creditors won't try to collect the money you owe, think again. Creditors have up to twenty (20) years to collect on a money judgment, including interest and attorney's fees. They may be monitoring your assets at this very moment. They may be waiting for you to let your guard down so they can execute a writ of garnishment or record a lien. Contact the Tribuiani Law Firm and have Robert W. Tribuiani, an attorney at law, about negotiating with your creditors to try to reach a settlement of your debts, so you can regain your financial freedom.

Protection from Creditors

Florida provides extensive protection to debtors who reside within the state. Whether you are falling behind on your credit card payments, or have already defaulted on your payments, or discovered that your creditor has been awarded a money judgment against you, it is important to know that you have legal rights. If you don't know your rights, you are likely to lose them. Seek the counsel of an attorney to learn your rights as a debtor.

If your primary residence is in Florida, and that residence qualifies as your homestead, your unsecured creditors are prevented from taking that residence as settlement for unpaid debts, depending on your specific circumstances.

Likewise, if you, as a Florida resident, hire an attorney to represent you in negotiations with your creditors, those creditors are no longer allowed to contact you directly, depending on your circumstances. Furthermore, under federal law, the collection agents who are hired by your creditors are not allowed to contact you directly.

When a creditor seeks to place a writ of garnishment on a debtor's bank account, the debtor has the right to "block" or dissolve that writ to the extent that the account consists of social security benefits, retirement or profit sharing benefits, pension money, and /or annuities. But, if the debtor does not legally assert his or her right in accordance with Florida law, the creditor may end up collecting money to which the creditor is not otherwise entitled, and may do so without opposition.

Contact the Tribuiani Law Firm for a free legal consultation and have Robert W. Tribuiani represent you in permanently settling your credit card debts.
