In our first meeting with prospective clients, we get an understanding of their financial situation and assess how bankruptcy might help them. Filing for bankruptcy relief is not for everyone — if you don't have a great deal of debt or if your financial pressures reflect a cash flow crisis instead of insolvency, you'll likely be better off with a credit counseling service or a negotiated workout with your main creditors.
Bankruptcy can only discharge your debts once every eight years
Filing for bankruptcy every time you run into financial trouble isn't an option. We can help you decide whether bankruptcy's protection from creditors is right for you right now. We can also help you understand the difference between Chapter 7 debt relief and a Chapter 13 repayment plan.
Bankruptcy is a legal process that protects you from creditor pressure. Our experience with federal bankruptcy law and procedure can help you decide if it's your best current option to prevent foreclosure of a mortgage or stop creditor harassment.
