If you value your privacy and the dignity of West Virginians who have fallen on hard times, please take action right this moment. Today, the WV Senate Judiciary Committee will be considering Senate Bills 556 and 563. Tell your representatives to vote against these bills that pander to outside interests at the expense of people who actually vote in WV on election day.

Senate Judiciary is deciding Saturday whether to put you and WV consumers first--or bad businesses who profit from financial abuse and exploitation. Tell lawmakers to protect you and your rights! Act NOW at http://bit.ly/2nNOHvU

Man Doesn’t Know How Parents Ever Going To Pay Off Massive Student Loan Debt

Some levity regarding student loans. They are a necessary evil but the sticker shock after graduation can be overwhelming.

NEW YORK—Recent Wesleyan University graduate Zach Wallace confided to reporters Thursday that he has no clue how his parents are supposed to earn enough money to settle his $40,000 in student loan debt.

Hinkle Law has been busy stopping foreclosure sales lately. We've probably stopped 5 or 6 in the last 3 weeks alone. Giving homeowners a chance to keep their homes is a win for them and the mortgage lenders.

Student loan borrowers face 'payment processing pitfalls' - TODAY.com

Even when consumers have the best intentions, this article shows that their efforts can be derailed by the greed of loan servicers.

Repaying a student loan should be simple, but a new report from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finds that it's often...

West Virginia Attorney General Warns of Efforts to Sell Home Deeds

A lot of WV homeowner's that I talk to are confused about where they can obtain copies of their deeds. Many think that their mortgage lender holds the deed much like a car title. After a deed is recorded with the County Clerk's Office, you should receive the original by mail shortly after. If you've misplaced the original, you can print out a copy at your local County Clerk's office for a nominal fee.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is warning the state's residents to be cautious of companies offering to sell them a copy of the deed to their home. Morrisey's

What Happens Over Time If You Don't Pay Your Credit Card Bills

Although many think bankruptcy is a fatal blow to a person's credit, the reality is that you can often rebuild your credit faster post-bankruptcy than by allowing unpaid debts to linger on your credit history.

Your monthly credit card bill comes. You get that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach because you know your bank account doesn’t have enough money to make the minimum payment. What happens over days, months, even years if you don’t pay your credit cards?

Very happy that a local homeowner came to us for help today. We're going to be able to stop a foreclosure sale set for Monday and give the homeowner a chance to get caught up on payments. Like many West Virginia consumers, he was solicited by an out-of-state "foreclosure rescue" law firm who collected thousands of dollars in fees before telling the client that they couldn't stop the sale. If you have a friend or family member in a desperate situation with their house, please tell them to get some real advice from an attorney licensed in their state.

"One a good note, I would like to thank you again for everything you helped me with at the time of my bankruptcy. It was a devastating time with the divorce and bankruptcy, but your calm assurance and professional help got me through. My credit is back on track with a score of over 700 and I recently was able to purchase a home with an interest rate of 3.25. I can't stop smiling. Thank you for everything."

An excerpt from a letter that we received from a client that we helped through a tough time three years ago. Makes me proud of the work that we do.

Medical costs push more Americans into bankruptcy - TODAY.com

Unlike most online info about bankruptcy, this rings true. We help people daily who have unpaid medical bills or who have used other forms of credit to pay medical bills.

Rising medical bills are expected to push 1.7 million American households into bankruptcy this year—making health expenses the single biggest cause of such filings, outpacing bankruptcies due to credit-card bills or unpaid mortgages, according to new data. Even having health insurance doesn't shield...
