Consumer bankruptcy

The stress can be overwhelming when you are inundated with phone calls from harassing creditors. Bankruptcy is a tool that can be used to stop foreclosures and save your home. You can even stop repossession and retain your vehicle.

The "new" bankruptcy laws are now almost five years old, yet common misconceptions about the law still prevail:

  • Many people believe they can no longer file bankruptcy. In fact, most people can file under the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy laws.
  • Most people assume that if they do file bankruptcy, they will lose all money and possessions. In fact, most people lose very little, if they even lose anything at all.
    It is important to understand how Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help you. This is why it is so important to contact a firm that knows the details of bankruptcy law.

Our attorneys are more than happy to discuss your bankruptcy questions over the phone and to meet with you to schedule a free initial consultation. After that first meeting with our firm, you will understand your options, but not be under any obligation.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
