Who We Are: About Freedom Debt Relief
Freedom Debt Relief, a subsidiary of Freedom Financial Network, LLC, is a group of about 800 employees strong and growing – known internally as "The Freedom Family". We are energetic, smart & compassionate - but most importantly we are advocates who are all about helping our customers through tough financial times in their lives. We were founded in 2002 by Stanford Business School graduates Andrew Housser and Brad Stroh and since then we have built the best management team in the industry. Freedom works out of two primary offices in San Mateo, CA and Phoenix, AZ. Our customers, 80,000 and growing, are spread widely across the United States.
The American Fair Credit Council (AFCC) is an organization dedicated to supporting consumers with overwhelming credit and debt problems and to promoting and adhering to best practices in the credit advocacy industry. There are fewer than 10 companies in the entire country formally Accredited by the AFCC.
What We Do
We are credit advocates who help people improve their financial well-being. We conduct financial consultations, educating the consumer and recommending the appropriate solution. Our core services offer an alternative to bankruptcy, credit counseling, and debt consolidation. We approach the business from the human perspective and represent the consumer exclusively (not the banks or other agendas). We become your number one advocate, helping you re-establish solid financial footing as quickly as possible. We never collect fees for our consultations, and we will only earn a fee after you start seeing results.
Freedom Debt Relief is committed to elevating the standards of our industry, and we place the appropriate emphasis on our responsibility for our valued customer base. Two of our executives sit on the Board of Directors of the leading credit advocacy industry association in the country, the AFCC, which is focused on elevating business standards in the industry and requires its members to abide by a strict Code of Conduct in dealings with consumers. Freedom is one of approximately 10 companies in the entire country that are formally accredited by the AFCC.
We have over 80,000 clients, and they're hard-working, honest people just like you.
Our customers are the reason we come to work. They’re the reason we strive for excellence every day. The reason we’re humble. The reason we employ and are responsible for the livelihoods of about 700 dedicated Freedom employees and their families.
