Christie Arkovich has been a Florida licensed attorney for more than 27 years since graduating from Stetson College of Law in 1992 with honors. Her law firm, Christine D. Arkovich, P.A., helps people reduce student loans and other debts. Don’t believe others who say nothing can be done about student loans – Christie is seeing fantastic results every day! Christie was former trial counsel for Sallie Mae, ECMC and other student loan servicers and guarantors in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She “switched sides” and now represents student loan borrowers and other debtors both inside and outside of bankruptcy. Since getting rid of student loans is so difficult in bankruptcy, she has had to get creative in finding ways to reduce the debt to affordable and sustainable payments with an end in sight. Christie prides herself on achieving “out of the box” results utilizing tools and techniques that other attorneys often overlook.
Attorney Arkovich is a frequent speaker at various consumer oriented continuing legal education seminars for other attorneys before the American Bankruptcy Institute (“ABI”), the National Association of Consumer Advocates (“NACA”) and the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association (the “TBBBA”). In addition, she writes a quarterly column for the TBBBA, Student Loan Sidebar, about recent student loan related laws, regulations and developments nationwide. She recently served on the Student Loan Committee for the new Student Loan Management Program in the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida and is on the Board of Directors/Consumer CLE Chair for the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association. She is a frequent CLE (Continuing Legal Education) lecturer on student loans and consumer debt collection laws for other attorneys.
