Our Debt Settlement fees are based on the type of account (credit card, medical, tax, student loan, etc.) and where the account is in the process (pre-judgment, judgment, garnishment, etc.). We charge a low monthly fee (starting as low as $10) and a percentage of what we save you. If you have a lawsuit filed against you, our Debt Defense fees are typically a flat fee of $500 and $50/month for the entire case, including trial. If we are able to resolve the case for less than the amount sued for, we charge 30% of the amount saved less the $500 already paid. We also resolve judgments (including motions to vacate) and file Bankruptcies. We do accept payment plans. Our Collection Harassment fees are always on a contingency fee basis. This means you do not pay if we do not win.

From the start of my practice over 20 years ago I knew I would always represent consumers and in my own practice. Consumers do not have the resources of big business and the government. Nor do they have the protections. And yet they are the main drivers of what made this country great. There is nothing wrong with business, big or small, its just that I saw that everyday people were in need of good legal assistance. As a result I focused on consumer needs such as protection from large financial institutions, government abuses, and civil rights. I enjoy meeting clients and assisting them to solve legal problems.
Over 22 years of actual courtroom experience allows me to provide real world practical advice on what counts. Not on what should be, but on the reality of any given situation. The laws are not always fair and just. I also have experienced many of the same things my clients are experiencing. Many years ago I was in financial distress as a result of a business failure. I experienced first hand the issues confronted by everyday consumers who needed a work out solution. I found that, at that time at least, there was no real legal assistance for individuals in that situation. I vowed to fill that gap and to this day work on assisting consumers to get back on their feet financially.

Gregory Fitzgerald was born and raised in Los Angeles County. He attended high school overseas and returned to the US in 1980 where he attended California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting (1984) and began his post collegiate career as a tax auditor with the IRS. Dissatisfied with the inherent unfairness of the US Tax Code, he obtained a California contractor's license, worked as a contractor by day and went to law school at night. He graduated first in his class at Southern California College of Law in 1990, passed the California bar exam and commenced practicing law in 1991.
Mr. Fitzgerald began his legal career working for a small consumer protection firm before opening his own practice in 1992 in Orange CA. He has always been dedicated to helping individuals and small business from the substantial and unfair overreach of the government and its protected insiders such as banks, insurance companies, and other large crony corporate interests such as debt buyers and collectors. In 22 years of practice he has represented thousands of clients, tried hundreds of cases, and secured countless victories for his clients.
He was an Orange County Judge Pro Tem from 1996 to 2006, is admitted to practice before all California state courts (CA bar #153082), is admitted to The United States District Court in the Central District, Southern District, Eastern District and the Northern District of California. He is also a member of the Orange County Bar Association, the Western San Bernardino County Bar Association, and Consumer Attorneys of California.
William Campbell's experience as a litigator has placed him in a unique position to fight for his clients. After graduating from Southwestern University College of Law and passing the California State Bar Exam, William sought as much time in the courtroom as possible. The best place to do this was working for the Fresno County Public Defender and District Attorney's Office.
William's start as a criminal defense attorney with the Public Defenders Office was short lived after securing an acquittal for his client in his first jury trial as a lawyer. It was soon after that acquittal that William found himself working for the District Attorney's Office. In that capacity William spent almost every day in the courtroom arguing motions and doing jury trials. The amount of hours spent in the courtroom refined William's courtroom presence and skill as a litigator.
With all the necessary skills to be an effective litigator William moved to the private sector and to civil law. William began working as a Senior Litigator with The Seideman Law Firm, P.C. William fought for consumers who were harassed by creditors, debt collectors, and debt buyers as a Plaintiff's lawyer using the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and its California equivalent, The Rosenthal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. William filed and successfully prosecuted over 200 cases. William also defended debtors who were sued in debt collection cases.
William is committed to his clients and fights for them with technique, legal acumen and passion.
