Chantel Grant GM Law Firm Student Loans: The Consumer’s Advocate
It is not unusual for credit card companies and large student loan companies to engage in predatory practices that violate the rights of consumers. When consumers try to settle debts with credit card companies, debt collectors and private student loan companies, these creditors are so powerful, that the outcome will not favor the consumer.
Consumers are often unaware of the laws that protect them from becoming victims of the companies and debt collectors who use unscrupulous tactics. As a result, individuals become saddled with debt that they have no hope of paying off, resulting in their credit histories being ruined. Not understanding their rights, some people in this situation simply give up. Chantel Grant is a female lawyer and managing partner of GM Law Firm of Boca Raton, Florida, who has been successful in helping individuals resolve issues with creditors, including student loan companies.
Chantel Grant understands that college students and their families may not fully comprehend the difference between federal student loans and private student loans. Federal student loans are made by the federal government and graduates begin repaying the loans after graduation. Federal student loan payments are income-based, meaning that if there is a hardship that interferes with repayment of a federal loan, a graduate can request that payments be lowered or deferred for a period. Federal loans also have fixed rates, which means borrowers know exactly how much interest they required to pay on the loan.
Private student loans are different. In some cases, private lenders may require that repayments begin while a student is still in school and interest rates may be variable, which can increase the payments. When a graduate has difficulty making private loan payments, there are usually no helpful options, so graduates who cannot pay may default on these loans, which leads to bad credit. Bad credit can prevent a graduate from purchasing vehicles and homes. Private student loans often require a cosigner, so now you have a family member or friend who is 100% on the hook for your loans, complicating an already messy situation. We have seen so many families destroyed because of cosigning related issues.
Many employers include credit checks in background investigations for prospective employees. Defaulting on a student loan can jeopardize a graduate’s chance of getting a job. Being unable to obtain a decent paying job compounds the problem of paying back a private student loan. Chantel Grant is passionate about helping clients who have experienced the challenges of private lenders harassing them, violating their rights, and putting them in no-win situations.
Chantel Grant and GM Law Firm has represented hundreds of clients for Student Loan help who did not know where to turn for help in resolving issues of harassment and threats of lawsuits from creditors. Grant’s expert knowledge of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act makes her a skilled advocate for clients.
Recently, through local counsel, GM Law Firm won a landmark $23,000 Navient Trial in Texas. This win was major, with the Plaintiff being so surprised that they said, “that just doesn’t happen.” The defendant was not able to prove that the client’s loan was bundled and securitized into the trust that they were suing under, so they cannot refile the lawsuit. This case can be cited in other lawsuits in Texas where there is not enough proof on the chain of title, and because of this huge win, GM Law Firm is positioned to fight for better and bigger settlements. Regardless of scammy bloggers who accuse the GM Law Firm of having conflicts of interest, Chantel Grant knows they can, will, and do win for their clients.
