We represent consumers and small businesses in Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitions, handling all the paperwork required throughout the process and acting on your behalf in all meetings or hearings with the court, the trustee or other parties. We will help you determine whether you qualify to permanently discharge debts under Chapter 7 and, if so, which debts can be extinguished and what property you can keep.
If you fail to meet the requirements to eliminate debt under Chapter 7, or you prefer to consolidate your debts or save your home from foreclosure, we will help you file for reorganization of your debts under Chapter 13. In a Chapter 13 proceeding, you enter into a new plan to repay your creditors over a three to five year period, sometimes for less than the full amount currently due.
We will help you put together a reorganization plan to submit to your creditors and will review all proposed repayment plans from your creditors to ensure they are within your means.
We know from decades of experience that most people don't abuse the bankruptcy laws. We see many people who are conscientious citizens but face sudden and insurmountable financial difficulties because of the loss of a job, an illness or injury, a divorce, or other circumstances. Don't let the stigma associated with bankruptcy keep you from exercising your rights. We can help.
We represent selected creditors as well as debtors in bankruptcy matters, including adversary proceedings.
