Concentrated Practice Areas

At the Ghanooni Law Office, our experienced and skilled Los Angeles bankruptcy attorney concentrates on two main practice areas, which allows for a focused and successful outcome for each of our clients.

Our lawyer understands better than most that bankruptcy will provide you and your family with a fresh start, no matter the reason for your filing. Although most people use bankruptcy as a last resort, and beat themselves up about the decision to move forward, it is fair to note that bankruptcy exists because it is a necessary petition to the courts.

  • Divorce
  • Failed Business Interests
  • Foreclosure Threats

  • Unexpected Expenses/Damaged Property
  • Wage Garnishment

At the Ghanooni Law Firm, it is our position to help, not to judge. We will guide you through the process with compassion and understanding, while leaving no detail left to chance so you can start your life anew again.

Thorough and Exacting Representation

The Los Angeles bankruptcy lawyer at the Ghanooni Law Firm has developed a user friendly approach to outlining your financial situation, so you only have to answer the questions with a straightforward approach. It is important that we record only accurate information to present to the courts, so your paperwork is final when the petition is filed. 

Our detail oriented attorney will handle all of the paperwork necessary to get you through the next stage of the process, which differs for each type of bankruptcy. Depending on your income to debt ratio, we will be able to determine which type of bankruptcy filing fits your financial needs best; chapter 13 bankruptcy or chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Explained

If you have a higher level of income, or numerous assets that keep you from qualifying for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, the alternative is a debt restructuring plan called Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows our attorney to list your assets, debts, monthly expenses and income in an effort to design a personal repayment plan that will be approved by the court. This repayment plan will include agreed upon repayment amounts from your creditors, as well as any past due mortgage or car payments that need to be included into the filing so you can maintain ownership of them going forward. The repayment window is three to five years and all payments must be made on time in the amount agreed upon by the trustee.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Explained

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the opportunity to wipe your debt slate clean. Although your assets will be protected by this form of bankruptcy, your debts will be discharged as a result. Individuals who qualify for this process are typically unable to meet their day to day expenses, let alone the minimum payments on their credit cards or medical bills.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy requires a petition to the courts, including your income and total debts, which will later be reviewed in a mandatory meeting with a trustee to review your case for accuracy. We will handle the paperwork, and accompany you to the hearing, so you will never be alone during this difficult time. Once the trustee concludes your hearing, your debts will be discharged within three months of your hearing date.
