Attorney Ed Dechant has over 40 years experience advising clients with debt problems. He has filed thousands of bankruptcies for individuals and small businesses.

His low rates and willingness to work out terms in paying his fee has resulted in an ever expanding client base. In order to lessen the travel burden for clients from outlying areas, Mr. Dechant has relied on phone, fax, and mail. As more people have come to him for help he has turned to the Internet to counsel those with financial difficulties. Attorney Dechant is a debt relief agency and is successful in helping individuals fight creditors.
