To many people, bankruptcy is a word filled with negative connotations. It is often wrongly associated with carelessness, poor judgment and being given a "free ride." At the Law Offices of James C.

Pathways to Debt Relief

Bankruptcy is a federal court process designed to protect consumers from debt collection and develop a way to give them a fresh financial start. The two major types of bankruptcy that we assist clients with are:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Debt liquidation. Offers clients an opportunity to wipe out a large majority of their debt.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: Restructures people's debts into a manageable payment schedule and in most cases, significantly reduces it.

We know that every client's situation is different and we tailor our approach to suit the needs and goals of each client.
