Experience

Experience is key when dealing with the SBA, SBA lenders, and the applicable laws. You'll also want one who is intimately familiar with the Offer in Compromise process in case you will go that route.

Charges a Fair Price

For small business owners facing an SBA default, money is an issue. The last thing you want is to spend every last spare dime defending all of your other dimes left. Typically, about 10% of the amount that your SBA lawyer saved you is a fair fee for their services.

Integrity

While most SBA lawyers are looking to help small business owners, some will take advantage of your situation, especially if it's turned to desperation. Ensure your SBA attorney is offering you the best advice and following the law. They also should not be charging large upfront fees.

$350,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED STRUCTURED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

$350,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED STRUCTURED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

Client personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan for $350,000. The small business failed but because of the personal guarantee liability, the client continued to pay the monthly principal & interest out-of-pocket draining his savings. Client hired a local attorney but quickly realized that he was not familiar with SBA-backed loans or their standard operating procedures. Our firm was subsequently hired after the client received the SBA's official 60-day notice. After back-and-forth negotiations, we were able to convince the SBA to reinstate the loan, retract the acceleration of the outstanding balance, modify the original terms, and approve a structured workout reducing the interest rate from 7.75% to 0% and extending the maturity date for a longer period to make the monthly payments affordable. In conclusion, not only we were able to help the client avoid litigation and bankruptcy, but we also save him approximately $227,945 over the term of the workout.

Client received the SBA's Official 60-Day Notice with the debt scheduled for referral to Treasury’s Bureau of Fiscal Service for aggressive collection in less than 26 days. We were hired to represent him, respond to the SBA's Official 60-Day Notice and prevent enforced collection by Treasury and the Department of Justice. We successfully negotiated a structured workout with an extended maturity date that included a reduction of the 14% interest rate and removal of substantial collection fees (30% of the loan balance), effectively saving the client over $242,000.
