COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morgan Drexen, a leading provider of software and support services to businesses nationwide, (http://www.morgandrexen.com) today announced a strong start to 2014 for law firms using their powerful software technology. In January, law firms using Morgan Drexen's software platforms and services settled more than 8 million dollars in consumer debt for their law firm clients nationwide. The company reported that its outsourced treasury services processed attorney settlements totaling more than 8.3 million dollars in consumer debt for a settled amount of 2.1 million dollars, translating to a strong start for 2014.
"These numbers are really astonishing," said Vincent Howard, founding partner of the Howard Law, P.C., whose firm uses the software created by Morgan Drexen. "Each month, thousands of people who need help turn to attorneys like myself using this proprietary software, to get legal services like bankruptcy and debt settlement and bankruptcy as they need." He continued, "We're using technology to help people, and at the end of the day as attorneys that's our goal – to help people solve their problems."
Law firms like Howard Law point to using the support services provided by Morgan Drexen as a way to keep legal costs low enough to allow distressed Americans to receive legal aid to address their financial hardship – services that they might not have been able to afford previously. They also point out that because of this technology, they are able to help people get their financial life back on track and help people feel the relief of living with less debt.
When one law firm client from Missouri was asked how it felt to have an affordable attorney help her become debt free she exclaimed, "Oh my gosh, I yahooed and I said alright! I was so relieved. Now I can afford more food, gas and an independent lifestyle."
"We are excited to be part of a record year, but at the end of the day, the stories we hear back from attorneys using our software and services are truly heartwarming," said Morgan Drexen CEO, Walter Ledda. "Because of our support products, people are able to have an attorney by their side and that makes a huge difference when they are contemplating how to resolve their financial debts to big international companies who are used to getting their own way."
"It took a huge burden off of me," said one Barnes Law client from South Carolina. "The attorneys know what they are doing, they are good at their job, and settled everything for me."
Another client from Las Vegas recently told her story. "I had to have open heart surgery so I decided to call. They've done an excellent job for me. I'm very happy – without my attorney and the assistance of Morgan Drexen, I would still be paying bills."
