All your money matters – every dime, every penny. How you save it, why you spend it, how much it costs you (yes-costs you), why you want it, what you want to do with it – it all matters. Money matters. The universal language. Yet, we don’t all take our money as seriously as we should. We become jaded, tolerant, nonchalant. Jaded about the ability to have/get/grow more money; tolerant of the state of our financial affairs, living paycheck to paycheck or not being secure about our retirement; nonchalant about spending money.

We aren’t diligent about our money. Not the way we are about our clothes, cars, kids, our entertainment – television (#Scandal), music, religion, etc. Because we aren’t diligent with our money – educating ourselves, staying alert & aware – we sometimes miss opportunities, knowledge, information.

There are many tools to handle and manage your money matters. Get to know them. Explore your options and be diligent in securing financial stability. Most of us could solve all our financial problems if we spent 25% of the time we spend on entertainment, on our financial stability.

Credit repair, debt negotiation, bankruptcy, proper budgeting, responsible spending, are all ways to tackle debt and prepare for the future. Do you really know enough about each option to make an informed decision, or to reject an option?

Other stuff we do

Misty started handling personal injury cases before law school by working for the Law Office of Alan Sarkisian while in high school.  She settled her first personal injury case after she was in an accident. Two lawyers told her she would get nothing, and another told her to settle for the $500 the insurance company offered.  Testing her analytical, advocacy and negotiating skills,  Misty settled for 5 times the original settlement amount.   A whopping $2500!  Since then Misty has negotiated multi-party cases,  5 figure deals and structured settlements.  Now Misty accepts a few select personal injury cases each year – especially motorcycle cases.  As a motorcycle rider herself, Misty understands the particular needs of injured riders.
Over the past three decades Misty has tutored, trained examinees for the bar, taught, been an adjunct professor and motivational/public speaker. Misty had designed and provided workshops and seminars on criminal law, family law, small business start-ups, entrepreneurship, career development, problem solving, crisis management, motivation, community activism and diversity to small – medium groups (5-83) in communities, at libraries, and organized events such as Ikea‘s Business and Wellness Conference, using interactive teaching styles and methods designed for culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse audiences.
There are many ways to deal with tax debt.  For one, most people don’t know that tax debt CAN be discharged in bankruptcy.  There are rules of course – for example, you must have actually filed the tax return at least two years ago; but getting rid of tax debt is easier than most people think.  There are also offers in compromise and even tax court, which is not nearly as scary as it seems.
Obama seldom gets credit to the work he did with student loans – but it is AMAZING!  There are plans with zero repayment and complete forgiveness in 10 years!  Seriously.  Work for the city, government, a non-profit?  You probably qualify for debt-forgiveness.   There are several programs.
