Can anyone get me some advice about Oak View Law Group? I know they are credited with BBB, but everytime I call I get a foreign sounding man that I cannot understand answering the phone. I need to sign up for some kind of debt relief and thought this company may be able to help me out. I am so leery of signing through the internet and giving out personal information. I live in Ky and cannot find a local debt settlement office anywhere.




Oak View Law Group does have a "satisfactory" rating with the BBB.

To get consumer feedback about this company you can search around our forum. In fact OVLG has good response in our forum.

Some of the consumer responses can be found out here: -

I'm not interested in offending anyone, but I'm confused.

Searching around, I see that Vikas owns Oak View Law Group.

[samebox:3fbce8b20f="OVLG"]"Oak View Law Group" or OVLG, is not owned by Vikas. The shareholders and licensed attorneys of OVLG are V. KALANI, ESQ. - Founding Attorney,
Christopher Donald Hewitt, ESQ. (Attorney) and Brian Morris, ESQ. (Attorney). To know more about these attorneys, please go through our site????????s link: - https://www.oakvi ewlaw.com/attorneys/index.html[/samebox:3fbce8b20f]

I find that he's not licensed with the California state bar. And a lawyer named Kalani is founder of OVLG, but he's not licensed either.
[samebox:3fbce8b20f="OVLG"]A CA law corporation can have foreign attorneys as share holders. Please read http://www.calbar.ca.gov/state/calbar/calbar_generic.jsp?c id=10164&id=1316. The shareholders of OVLG are listed at:
https://www.oakviewlaw.com/ attorneys/
[/samebox:3fbce8b20f]

But a lawyer that _is_ licensed in CA, Chris Hewitt, lives not in Palo Alto or even California, but out in AZ.
[samebox:3fbce8b20f="OVLG"]OVLG uses a completely web based case management system. Please see: https://www.oakviewlaw.co m/screenshots/ Chris works from Arizona but he has access to all the electronic files. [/samebox:3fbce8b20f]
(He's really pretty new to the law but his firm is so highly recommended, he must be one of the best debt lawyers ever.)

(BTW, if someone can show me how to legally post a link, I'll provide several.)
[samebox:3fbce8b20f="Vikas"]The TOS allows links to be put as inactive links. Please see: http://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/tos.html [/samebox:3fbce8b20f]

Then I see that this website, which recommends OVLG and puts in the wonderful ranking chart, is also owned by Vikas.

(There are links galore.)

So I do some more googling, and it turns out that Vikas has been hiring forum writers, managers, moderators and so on for years. Content writers too. Lots of them, meaning that many posts here must be professionally produced, right?

[samebox:3fbce8b20f="Vikas"]All employees of InterNext Technologies Inc. when they post in the forums they are identified as employees of InterNext Technologies Inc. We have given you the freedom to post what you want, please do not abuse it to make insinuations.[/samebox:3fbce8b20f]


(Many, many links. How to post them?)

Can anyone please explain all this. I'm so confused and all I really want is just help with all my debt. I know I can trust this wonderful community filled with care.

Thanks so much!

Can this be true?

If the same person owns this site, creates the posts, and is on both sides of a referral that might not be ethical.

OVLG is a real law firm, it's on the coveted ranking chart.

Can a moderator shed some light on this?

This must be a real concern for all of us in this forum. If they are not legally licensed how can we trust them to help us.

[samebox:5a3f6e4405="OVLG"] Please see www.oakviewlaw.com/attorn eys/index.html for the links to the bar association websites and our licensing. [/samebox:5a3f6e4405]

Somebody must say something about this post above. Is this forum getting paid by a law firm to say all this good things about them?

[samebox:5a3f6e4405="Vikas"] This is a uncensored forum. Whenever a post is made by InterNext employee it is clearly marked. [/samebox:5a3f6e4405]

Boy, it sure is quiet in here. When I looked a few minutes ago, Shazzer was the only registered user online.

Is today a Hindu holiday?

Seems that today, August 16, 2008 is Raksha Bandhan, the festival celebrating love and affection between brothers and sisters. (Yesterday was Independence Day.)

Be nice to see a substantive response to the concerns above, but probably most of this thread will be gone by tomorrow. In a few hours a new day will dawn in Calcutta, and poof! My worst fears about this place confirmed.

Anyway, Happy Holiday, brothers and sisters!

I am starting to wonder if anything you read on the internet is true anymore. I know I would certainly tend to acknowledge negative comments about a company versus positvie feedback. Think about it, where are the positive comments really coming from? I don't know if they are from someone in India that is posting for $10 bucks a post or a real person in Podunk Junciton, Kansas. It's time we all start questioning positive feedback about companies and maybe start paying more attention to places like RipOff Reports. This whole industry is crooked in my book. If you want to do something right, do it yourself (maybe with the help of a good attorney).
This industry feeds on a lot of vulnerable and desperate people looking for a way out of the messes that they got themselves into (for the most part).
Think before you act.
As for the posts above that bring into question, the ethics of some of these sites, I certainly agree that someone should investigate the allegations and find out what is going on.

I wish I knew how to research some of this. Who owns what, who owns who, who gets paid kickbacks, who gets paid to post positive feedback? It would be interesting to know how a lot of these sites actually work and survive? The other poster was certainly correct in implying that you have to take each post with a grain of salt because you really don't have any idea where it is coming from or where they got there law degree? I'm not a lawyer either but I'm smart enough to know that there is a lot going on in some of these forums that are way over my head and rather than trying to figure it out, I will just continue to research the net and be careful how I interpret fact from fiction.
