Attorney Ed Weer provided me with guidance and knowledge to resolve my student loan debt in an affordable way. I was surprised to learn that options exist outside of bankruptcy. With Attorney Weer’s help, I created a plan that reduces my monthly loan payments to an amount I can afford. I couldn’t have accomplished this without Attorney Weer’s help.
