Our attorneys have spoken with many people who have their federal income tax refunds seized and who are hounded by debt collectors over student loans, yet are unable to find a job in the field in which they studied. We are exploring ways to improve the oversight of for-profit schools and to provide systemic relief from student loan debts for former students.
