The U.S. Department of Education announced, on March 25, 2016, that evidence uncovered in its ongoing investigation of Corinthian Colleges, Inc. indicates that students were defrauded at 91 former Corinthian campuses nationwide and that those students have a clear path to student loan forgiveness. Students in more than 20 states who attended Corinthian's Everest or Wyo Tech schools, now represent the largest group of borrowers eligible for loan relief as a result of the Department of Education's investigation into Corinthian.

 

Also reporting at the announcement was the Department's Special Master for Borrower Defense, Joseph A. Smith, who delivered his third report on borrower defense to repayment (BD) issues. More than $130 million in student loan discharges have been approved to date for more than 8,800 former Corinthian Colleges students.

As in previous announcements, U.S. Education Secretary, John B. King Jr. was openly critical of Corinthian Colleges, Inc. saying, "When Americans invest their time, money and effort to gain new skills, they have a right to expect they'll get an education that leads to a better life for them and their families. Corinthian was more worried about profits than about students' lives... we will continue to take action to protect students and taxpayers from unscrupulous companies trying to profit off of students who simply want to better their lives."

If you feel you were defrauded by one of the Corinthian College branches and incurred federal student loan debt while attending, it's time to find out if you're eligible for loan relief. We will continue to follow this issue and post new information, as it becomes available, to help those who were defrauded by Corinthian.  Call us, the San Diego Student Loan Lawyer, at (619) 295-3322 for a free initial consultation.

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
Sincerely,
