Debt Rescue – your trusted Debt Counselling partner. Why?

Debt industry expert, Neil Roets, is at the steer of Debt Rescue

Neil Roets, CEO at the steer of Debt Rescue, is a prominent debt expert continuously consulted by the Media for debt advice. Neil obtained his LLB degree from the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education in 2002. In 2004 he was simultaneously admitted as an attorney of the Supreme Court, as well as a conveyancer. In 2005 he was also admitted as a notary public. He did his articles with a corporate litigation firm, specialising in insolvencies, before working in banking law at Straus Daly Attorneys Inc, until he started practicing for his own account in 2005. Neil co-founded Erasmus Roets Attorneys in 2006 where he specialised in debt-related matters, acting for consumers. During the course of 2008 Roets became a qualified solicitor of England and Wales after successfully completing the UK Qualified Lawyers Transfer Examinations. Later that year he became a registered Debt Counsellor with the National Credit Regulator (NCR) and co-founded Debt Rescue.

A pioneer for consumer rights

Roets was fascinated by the new legislation: the National Credit Act (NCA) of 2005. He has always enjoyed working with people and envisaged that finding solutions for over-indebted consumers would be ideal. As an attorney, he encountered many people and businesses who were faced with financial hardships, seeking legal assistance to prevent the loss of their hard-earned valuables.

With the inception of the NCA, a solution was provided to combat over-indebtedness and therewith the ultimate consumer protection in a time where the world’s economies were facing financial meltdown. Roets has always been an activist for consumer rights and found this new legislation to be a platform for empowering consumers with information in line with their basic rights. Roets combined his passion for consumer rights and law with Debt Counselling, which lead to the inception of Debt Rescue.
