Tired of Dealing with Student Loan Collectors?

Are you tired of your student loan company talking down to you every time you call, frustrated that your student loan company doesn’t take your concerns seriously, or angered that your student loan company has changed your repayment terms once again without your permission? Hundreds of thousands of student loan debtors in Oregon and Washington can’t sleep at night because they are terrified about the repercussions of default. Who wouldn’t worry when the laws that apply to other creditors regarding wage garnishment and tax-refund intercept don’t apply to the student loan industry?

You Are Not Alone

Millions of Americans have private student loans and most of them get treated with the same level of disrespect by the student loan industry. This is largely because the options for dealing with federally backed student loans are not available for the private ones. The student loan “establishment” is rigged to keep you in the dark about your rights under the law. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. We know how to resolve private student loan problems and how to put you back in control.

Who We Are and What We Do

I’m Tom McAvity, the managing attorney for Northwest Debt Relief. I have been practicing across Oregon and Washington for fifteen years. I am both a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates and a graduate of the prestigious Student Loan Law Seminar conducted by Joshua Cohen, the preeminent expert in the student loan law arena. I love this area of law because it gives me the chance to help people who really are trying to do the right thing.
I want you to know that we are firmly committed to finding a better way for all consumers who are struggling to shoulder the burden of troubled student loans, particularly to private student loan borrowers. We are not dabblers in this area, nor are we a “student loan relief company.” Let us be your secret weapon in the war on troubled student loans. Your loan history doesn’t matter, working together, we can put your life back on track to financial stability free of student loan worries.
