Carson Bankruptcy & Estate Planning Attorney

Lawyer for Chapter 7, Chapter 13, Estate Planning and Probate in Carson

Are you in financial trouble and there is no solution in sight? After a divorce, the loss of employment, a medical disaster or other situation, there can be a great deal of anxiety and stress trying to keep your bills paid – and it may be impossible. Filing for bankruptcy allows you to get a fresh start when there is no hope of catching up. It is important that you discuss filing for bankruptcy before you make any big decisions. For example, if you try to manage your bills by cashing out your retirement accounts, you not only will get a huge tax bill, if you file for bankruptcy, your retirement funds are exempt. Discuss your situation with our Carson bankruptcy lawyer at the Law Offices of James C. Shields before you make a decision. We can help you to determine if bankruptcy is right for you, or if there is an alternative that would solve your problems better. We have served the community of Carson for over two decades, and we are prepared to help you immediately.

There are cases in which action must be taken immediately, such as when foreclosure or repossession is imminent. We can act quickly in these cases. Once your property has been foreclosed upon, or your vehicle repossessed, it becomes far more complicated to solve, legally. We urge you to get in touch with us and discuss the options, including filing for bankruptcy, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, based upon your income and assets. We are not a legal mill that just provides the same service for each person – we carefully review the individual situation so that we can determine the best possible way to solve a serious financial problem. You can be confident that we take your situation seriously, that we care about our clients, and that everything possible will be done to get you the relief from financial stress that you need.
