Thank you for the reply. You can contact the Florida Bar and see if the firm or the attorneys working on your debt settlement, have to been subject to any discipline or bar complaint. The real issue is what happens if they can not settle and if BOA sued you? Are they going to defend the lawsuit? If you are not paying the credit card bills, is your credit taking a hit and will they try and repair it? Have any results been promised? These are all things to be concerned about because you need to figure out what will happen if they will not settle for an amount which you are willing to pay and if you get sued and what your money is going towards, each month.
