Testimonial from Kenneth Mackenzie

Years ago, I received a forceful phone call from a debt collector, that rocked my world. I later had a heart attack that led to two stents. Another story.

The debt collector said that he would sue me, take me to court, the whole nine yards. Where ever that would lead, it would not turn out well for me. I was petrified.

A week later, I was “sewer-served” some legal paperwork. It was handed to my 14-year-old son, who “looked eighteen”, while I was at work. I felt devastated. What could I do?

I went onto the internet to see what I could do for myself. Small claims court…filing legal paperwork…the CORRECT paperwork…at the correct time…meet with brutal debt-collection lawyers…too much…then I saw Ian’s web site.

I could sense the passion behind his chosen line of work – taking on Debt Collectors. I gave Ian a call and we quickly hit it off. We met to discuss the details of the case, then Ian was off: filing the paperwork to counter their claims; keeping the judge abreast of their delaying and stalling tactics. Debt collectors usually go unopposed through the court proceedings, and judges get lax to their behavior. Ian kept ahead of their legal games, while making me aware of each step that we took towards our goal. I now felt safe.

I paid for all the filing fees, while Ian worked on contingency. After a few rounds/weeks of paperwork, I gave a deposition to their lawyers, Ian by my side. At this point, they had already lost, and were saving a little bit of face, by having me sit across the table from them. Perhaps they wanted to see the lawyer that had brought them to their knees?

Ian got all his legal fees paid, I got my filing fees paid and a little bit extra. If I ever have, or hear of anyone having problems with, a heavy-handed debt collector, I know who to turn to – Ian Chowdhury.

Thank you, Ian.

Testimonial from Dave

I contacted Ian about two years ago in regards to being served TWICE by a large credit card collector (Cache).  It was the BEST thing I could have ever done in this situation.  He explained the process in full detail, as I usually find legal terms a bunch of jargon, and he had eased all of my anxiety (which was quite a bit).  The first suit was for $20,000 and the second was for $11,000.  Ian said that I wouldn’t hear anything for about a year and to hope that the case would be dropped, which happens sometimes, but to be prepared to meet on the court date.  Unfortunately we did end up meeting at the Norwalk Court and Cache was ready to battle.

Ian and Cache met before we were to see the judge and they offered to settle for a lesser amount of $6000.  I felt since I had already gone this far that I would take my chances and fight.  It was a great thing I did because once Ian presented my case of how they had purchased bad debt without proper legal documentation the judge threw the case out!!! Ian’s opening statement and the judge’s decision were the longest 5 minutes of my life but because of Ian’s professionalism and extremely well spoken words I didn’t have to testify.

This led to Cache having no second case against me of the other amount of $11,000 and it was dropped to $0.  Approximately two months after this outcome my credit score increased about 150 points.

So here I am extremely happy and satisfied 4 months after the court date I receive a message from Ian that he won the court costs against Cache and he will be sending me a check of $1400!!!  I could not believe it!  This guy is awesome.  Take it from me and contact him if you ever find yourself in this horrendous situation.

When people hear the word lawyer the first thoughts that come to ones mind are usually not pleasant. With Ian you can put your mind at ease for he is as genuine and real as I have seen in a person and as an attorney. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, considerate and reasonable in his rates. When I needed a consumer advocate lawyer I was very lucky to find Ian and he helped me through a very difficult time when I had a collection agency after me for erroneous charges. I was very satisfied with the outcome which helped to relieve a great deal of anxiety and stress that had been ongoing for a few years prior to resolution through Mr. Chowdhury. Thanks Ian.

Ian is truly my lifesaver. I was so stressed out trying to fight Equable. A friend referred me to him and that was the best decision I ever made to let him take care of my cases. Thank you, Ian.

Testimonial from Domingo

I was skeptical about a free consultation with a lawyer. I though that it would be a scheme for a quick up sale of legal services that I would not need. I was so wrong. The consultation was great. Ian gave me the information that I needed and explained it very well. He did not rush me and answered all my questions in the 15 minute call. I would definitely recommend him.
