Hunt and Henriques

I have had more and more clients call me about Hunt and Henriques.

Hunt and Henriques are one the biggest debt collectors for Citi in California.
They have a few attorneys but a lot of collectors and are essentially a collection company posed as a law firm. They do file suits and I have had many clients sued by them but they take their time in trying to collect the debt before they bring it to a law suit. They are very unorganized and hard to deal with. They don’t answer their phones some days, they don’t call back. I have dealt with them on the debt settlement side and Hunt and Henriques can be bull headed and are one of the hardest companies to negotiate good settlements on. Even when my clients have been served by a Hunt and Henriques law suit, they still don’t answer their phone and deal with the issues. Filing bankruptcy on cases that they handle makes me happy as I hate debt buyers and collectors that act in the way that they do. They are very disorganized and it might even be a decent idea to fight them in court over alleged credit card debt as I would imagine they don’t show up with the right paperwork etc. I had one case where my client was 3 days away from getting a discharge and Hunt and Henriques wasted their money on a filing fee and process server to serve them 3 months after we filed bankruptcy.

If you’ve been served by Hunt and Henriques or they are pursuing a debt, give my office a call and we can try to work something out with them and I can explain if bankruptcy can help you.

    It gave me great pleasure to file Chapter 7 a few days ago and I ONLY did it because of these dirt bag Hunt and Henriques attorneys. I was in a debt management program, getting back on track, making payments to them, and BAM, another lawsuite filed in Orange County court from them on me. I was over it, threw in the towel, and now they get nothing. They played their cards wrong, they were getting payments from me, now nothing. RANDALL called me a few days before Christmas 2010 and did nothing but demand 1600 dollars from me and made me feel like dirt. they are rude, unreasonable, and now, take my Chapter 7. You did really well for your client.

    You should have sued them for FDCPA violations. THey can’t harrass you and make you feel like dirt.

Frequently Asked Questions: Debt Consolidation in California
How does debt consolidation affect credit scores?

Initially, it might cause a slight dip due to credit inquiries. However, consistent payments can improve your credit score over time.

What is the difference between debt consolidation and debt settlement?

Debt consolidation involves taking a new loan to pay off debts, while debt settlement is negotiating to pay less than you owe. Settlement can negatively impact your credit score.

What are secured vs. unsecured debt consolidation loans?

Secured loans require collateral (like a house or car), usually with lower interest rates. Unsecured loans don't require collateral but typically have higher rates.

Is debt consolidation right for me?

It depends on your total debt, interest rates, credit score, and payment capability. It's suitable if you can pay off your debt within five years and secure a lower interest rate than your current debts.

Should I consider long-term financial planning?

Yes, debt consolidation should be part of a broader financial strategy including budgeting, cutting expenses, and building an emergency fund.

How do Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies in California differ?

Chapter 7 involves liquidating assets to pay off debts, while Chapter 13 allows debt restructuring over a set period, usually three to five years.

Can my spouse's bank account be garnished for my debt?

Bankruptcy laws offer protections against such actions, but specifics depend on individual cases and state laws.
