Success Stories.

Joe called the LSE Helpline for help when he tried to get repairs made to his home heating system and he was denied a loan.  The reason given was that there was a lien recorded against his house.  The heat was not working at all, and it was September.   A Helpline Attorney analyzed the case and determined the lien was improper.   After endless calls to the debt collector and essentially constant advocacy the debt collector released the lien.   Joe received the needed loan, and his heat was working again just as winter arrived.
