  • What do I need for the first consultation?

    All we need you to bring is your recent and accurate pay stub along with your list of creditors with amounts.

  • Will I lose any assets or property?

    Chapter 7 - Bankruptcy exempts most assets allowing over 90% of our clients to keep everything and lose nothing. In Chapter 13 - Debt Consolidation you keep all assets you choose as debts are paid "as if in full".

  • How often can I file Chapter 7 or 13?

    Chapter 7 - Bankruptcy allows 1 discharge every 8 years. Chapter 13 - Debt Consolidation lets you file as often as needed, if filed in good faith and 70% of unsecured debts were paid in a previously discharged Chapter 13.

Why Hire a Skilled Bankruptcy Lawyer? 

New bankruptcy laws have made filing for personal bankruptcy not only more expensive, but also more complicated. Bankruptcy attorneys now have to spend more time on means testing and validating the accuracy of each client's bankruptcy filings. It is not required that you hire a bankruptcy attorney prior to filing for personal bankruptcy, but the changes in the law have made completing bankruptcy on your own more complicated. A qualified attorney can make sure your financial situation is evaluated accurately, help schedule all court appearance, and complete all necessary bankruptcy documentation.
