If you’ve suffered a financial set-back, you may be enduring mounting debt, harassment from creditors, or even the threat of losing your home, car, or other personal property. Filing for bankruptcy can bring peace of mind and allow you to pursue a fresh start. Once a bankruptcy petition is filed, creditors will no longer be allowed to contact you and other collection activities must also stop, including garnishment of wages, foreclosures, debt collection lawsuits, repossessions, or bank account holds. You can often keep your home and other assets. With renewed confidence you can begin to rebuild your credit and look forward to a promising future once again.
With nearly 20 years’ experience representing thousands of clients, both creditors and debtors, I have a thorough knowledge of both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy laws and will guide you through your options to determine which form of bankruptcy is right for you, what assets you will be able to keep, and how best to begin rebuilding your credit.
