, Ill. (July 16, 2007)--As weakness in the Midwest’s
remodeling market continues to pressure remodeling firms, a
business-debt expert is trying to inform these companies

negotiator, based on his discussions with each creditor.
The client owes the negotiator nothing if a
settlement is not reached with the creditor.
If it is accepted, the negotiator’s fee is a flat
percentage of the of the debt savings achieved.
