BANKRUPTCY FILINGS ARE AT THEIR LOWEST PACE SINCE 1989

bankruptcies per yearIn 2015, 819,240 bankruptcy cases were filed nationwide a drop of 10% from the previous year.

If that sounds low, you’re right. In fact, if we ignore the statistical anomalies around the 2005 overhaul of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, this is the lowest per capita filing rate since 1989.

This slide in bankruptcy filings is nothing new – it’s been going on for years, even through the recession. In fact, take out the filing anomalies of 2005 and you’ll see that bankruptcy filings have been declining since 2004!

But in the aftermath of the housing collapse, we were faced with a surge of clients who needed our help with foreclosure-related filings. Many of us took in fewer cases overall, but the Chapter 13 work took up more of our time – not to mention the fact that it was far more profitable.

In other words – fewer people need our help because of unsecured consumer debt, and that trend is likely to continue into the future.

STUDENT LOANS ARE THE $1.5 TRILLION TIME BOMB

student loans risingFrom 2007 to 2015, total outstanding federal student loan debt doubled from $516 billion to $1.2 trillion, making student loans the only type of non-mortgage debt that’s grown consistently over the past decade.

Considering the fact that the cost of college has risen by 48% in the same time period to a whopping $37,000 on average, it’s no wonder that students are taking on more debt than ever.

But with income remaining stagnant for new graduates and the job outlook remaining poor for many trying to break into the workforce, the pressures on American families has continued to increase even as the rest of the economic outlook remains rosy.

In fact, consider these stunning facts:

  • More than 43 million Americans owe $1.5 trillion on student loans
  • 45% of all American families have outstanding student loans, up from 33 percent in 2007
  • More than 17% of our country’s outstanding student loan debt is held by individuals over the age of 50 and individuals aged 30 to 49 hold 51% of outstanding student loan debt
  • Nearly 20% of outstanding student loan debt is in default
  • Over 95% of private student loan debt requires a guarantor

With the foreclosure crisis behind us, we are faced with the inevitable question: what’s next?

INTRODUCING A DONE FOR YOU SYSTEM OF STUDENT LOAN RESOLUTION

Many organizations and bar associations offer sessions on student loans as part of their programs, but you can’t learn much in such a short time.

You need a hands-on learning system that provides a roadmap for helping clients with student loan problems.

 

Once you’ve received the education, it’s important to have a network of mentors and colleagues who can help you with the day-to-day challenges that arise with different situations.

Until now, you had only one option – to hack your way through things through sleepless nights and trial-and-error. But that not only takes too much time, it also risks costly mistakes.

That’s why we’ve created the most comprehensive educational system available to attorneys who want to learn how to effectively and profitably help clients with student loan problems.

 

Use the knowledge to supplement an existing consumer protection and bankruptcy practice – or to develop a standalone practice area in student loan resolution.

Over the past 5 years we’ve successfully trained nearly 300 attorneys in the field of student loan law. Now we’d like to invite you to learn how to help your clients with their student loan problems.

MEET THE STUDENT LOAN LAWYERS WHO TEACH THE WORKSHOP

JOSHUA R.I. COHEN

During a work-study job in the financial aid office of Brandeis University, I saw firsthand how many students take out student loans to finance their education, and how little information was provided on how to manage those debts after graduation.

After law school, saddled with my own insurmountable student loan bills, I was shocked to learn that there were no lawyers or financial professionals who knew how to untangle the knot of student loans.

This is crazy! I thought to myself. How is it that nobody seems to know how to get a handle on student loan problems?

Without any options, I spent my time learning the complex set of federal regulations that govern our system of higher education.

I found tremendous opportunities for student loan borrowers to get their federal loans under control – including dozens of ways to legally wipe out student loans without bankruptcy.

A deep understanding of the ways in which private student loans are packaged for sale on the financial markets revealed the problems that lenders had when they filed lawsuits for nonpayment of student loans.

People found out how I was helping borrowers, and I began to attract clients and referral sources from all over the country. Lawyers started begging me to teach them what I’d learned, and how they could help their clients as well.

Over time, I developed The Student Loan Law Workshop as a way to spread the knowledge that isn’t available anywhere else.

JAY S. FLEISCHMAN

I’ve been a consumer protection lawyer for over 20 years, helping people lower their student loan payments and get out of default, reorganize their finances by using the bankruptcy laws, correct errors on their credit reports, defend lawsuits brought by collectors, and sue debt collectors who harass people in violation of federal and state law.

For years, I found myself rendered ineffective in the face of my clients’ mounting student loan debt. Bankruptcy helped with other bills, but not student loans. Over time I came to understand that our educational system is broken.

Children are raised to believe college is necessary for a financially secure life, and the cost of education is the best investment they can make in their future. Don’t worry about the price tag, they’re told.  You’ll get a great job after graduation and you’ll pay it back then.

Armed with the optimism provided by every responsible adult, the media and educators they’ve been taught to trust blindly, millions of students each year sign on the dotted line for tens of thousands of dollars in student loans. Encouraged to pay no attention to the details of repayment, they pass their college years without care.

When it comes time to repay their loans, borrowers are given little information and few if any choices. Pay or else, they’re told by the modern gangsters who run the student loan companies and servicers. In the absence of reliable help, many borrowers default on their student loans, ruining their prospects for a better financial future.

I attended the Student Loan Law Workshop in June 2012 to learn how to help my clients fight back and gain control over their student loans. Since that time, my practice has evolved into one that deals almost exclusively with student loan issues.

I’ve developed not only a set of best practices for student loan resolution, but also a profitable and effective model for operating a successful consumer law practice. My tactics and techniques have been battle-tested in my own practice, and I’m pleased to bring them to you as a student of The Student Loan Law Workshop.

I’ve been a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys since 2002, and served as New York State co-chair from 2004-2012. I’m also a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates.
Currently, I practice in both New York and California.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING

Being able to give concrete solutions to my clients with student loans keeps me one step ahead of my competition, and that helps me get more clients and earn a better income. That wouldn’t be possible without the training and ongoing support offered by The Student Loan Law Workshop and Josh Cohen.

Before Josh’s seminar, student loans were a mystery to me and I refused to accept cases involving them. Now I’m able to show federal student loan borrowers how to obtain relief from staggering monthly payments and successfully defend private student loan lawsuits in Georgia. I quickly recovered the costs of the workshop, and continue to benefit from Josh’s continued support and guidance.

Thanks to the Student Loan Law Workshop, I’ve successfully transitioned into the field of student loan law after 25 years as a bankruptcy attorney. The Workshop was essential in getting me oriented to the field (and avoiding malpractice), and the follow-up seminars for graduates have been invaluable.
