Reset Button Is Approaching Student Debt from a New Angle - ABI

According to research by Villanova law professor Jason Luliano, a million student loan debtors have filed for bankruptcy in the past five years. However, 99.9 percent of them did not include their student loan debt in their bankruptcy filing. This research was the seed of what would become Reset Button, a new startup founded by Luliano and Rob Hunter looking to help student loan debtors who have gone through bankruptcy find a new way to include those debts in their filing, TechCrunch.com reported. Reset Button is targeted directly at folks who have already filed for bankruptcy but were told they couldn’t include their student loan debt in those filings, and so they didn’t. Reset Button has built a network of litigation lawyers who have experience in seeking student loan discharges. When a new user fires up Reset Button, the startup sends them through an evaluation process that collects financial information, etc. to assess whether or not one of those lawyers could litigate the discharge of that user’s student loan debt. Reset Button, as the connective tissue between debtor and lawyer, is able to automate a lot of that process for the lawyers, delivering a package of information on the case and connecting the user with the right lawyer for them.  http://bit.ly/37py0fT
