Thinking of settling?
If you’re considering settling, you may wonder whether or not it’s the right thing to do, and (if so) whether you need an attorney to do so. People choose to anonymously settle for a variety of reasons, such as just wanting to get everything dealt with as quickly as possible, or perhaps to guarantee anonymity.
Anonymously settling through Antonelli Law ensures that:
- All claims up through the settlement date (whether known or unknown) are covered. This means that you will not be sued again by the same company for any additional supposed download activity that occurred prior to the settlement date.
- You as a ‘Subscriber’ are released, not just your IP address. That means you are still covered if multiple IP addresses were used in any downloading activity.
- Our fee is flat rate, and we negotiate the best settlement possible on your behalf. We’ve successfully negotiated anonymous settlements that were lower than the original amount demanded by the movie company and will fight to get the best financial outcome for you.
