We improve lives by solving difficult financial problems  
A+ Rated from The Better Business Bureau.  

Helping People for 15 Years

SINCE 2006 (back when MySpace.com was cool), we have been helping people improve their lives and remove barriers to their success.   We are ready to fight for you.  We have litigated more than 1,000 cases against creditors.   Our reputation for fighting can be the key to get you the best outcome without having to go to court.


New Start Legal has offices in several states, including our headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada.  We are a DBA of Higbee & Associates.


Our Practice

Debt Settlement

Settle for your debts and get more time to pay without having to file bankruptcy.  You don’t pay us until we save you money.



We can fight law suits filed by creditors.  You pay one flat-fee and we get to work. Prices start at $500.


Document Preparation

We can provide you with the documents you need to fight a creditor law suit.  We will coach you each step of the way.

Stop Creditor Harassment

When creditors cross the line (which some often do), we can make them pay you.  You don’t pay us until we get you paid.


We have won dozes of appeals in civil and criminal courts.
