Ready to Serve Your Specific Needs
Our team understands that deciding whether to file for bankruptcy can be challenging. We also recognize that bankruptcy is not necessarily the right choice for every situation, which is why our firm also regularly assists clients with non-bankruptcy alternatives. We want you to feel confident about your financial future and will give you the seasoned and compassionate guidance you need to make informed decisions.
- Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or “liquidation bankruptcy,” gives you the opportunity to wipe your unsecured debt slate clean. In exchange, non-exempt assets will be liquidated. We can evaluate your eligibility and work to exempt and protect as much of your property as possible.
- Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Viable businesses facing temporary setbacks can use Chapter 11 bankruptcy to protect themselves from collection actions and restructure their debts, assets, and liabilities. Our team can help small and large businesses navigate this process.
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. This type of bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your finances and structure a repayment plan subject to the approval of the court and your creditors. We can help you develop a fair and advantageous plan that maximizes relief.
- Debt Settlement. If bankruptcy is not right for you, we can work directly with your creditors and attempt to negotiate a debt settlement. This involves paying less than what you originally owed by either providing a lump sum payment or agreeing to a restructured payment plan.
- Foreclosure Defense. If are behind on mortgage payments and are in danger of losing your home, our firm can assist you with a prompt Chapter 13 filing that will allow you to pay back mortgage arrears over several years. If you do not wish to stay in your home, we can also help you protect your equity in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
- Creditor Harassment. Collection agents and original creditors may be violating your federal and state rights if you are being subject to abusive phone calls, misrepresentation, baseless threats, or other forms of misconduct. Our team can help you understand and exercise your rights.
