Legal Helpers Debt Resolution LLC has agreed to settle charges it violated West Virginia consumer protection laws by misrepresenting to consumers that its lawyers could offer debt relief in the state.

The agreement with West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey's office bans the Nevada-based company from engaging in debt negotiations or modification services in the state. It also stipulates that Legal Helpers will pay the state $135,000, including $50,000 to be used for consumer restitution.
