Need help understanding bankruptcy laws?

With decades of experience practicing law, our team has an acute familiarity with the legal process of declaring bankruptcy and can help you understand your options. We know that drowning in debt can put unnecessary strain on your life and are devoted to helping you find the right legal path towards relief. Your individual needs are our top priority, and we will work efficiently and diligently to ensure they are met every step of the way.

We can discuss your options for the following chapters of bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 13

Depending on your unique financial needs, each chapter may provide certain benefits or ramifications that we can help you assess. For instance, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can provide immediate relief from debt, but you might risk losing significant assets to liquidation. Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to pay off debt over time without losing assets. This removes immediate pressure, but draws out debt resolution. Understanding how these two chapters will affect you is essential to creating a plan for debt relief that fits your lifestyle best. We will work with you to evaluate your case and discuss your best option for getting back on your feet through bankruptcy.

Find Peace of Mind through Estate Planning

It is never too early to begin to think about the future of your assets after you pass. Establishing a plan for how your property will be handled can provide you and your family with the confidence of knowing their financial future is secure. At the Law Offices of James C. Shields, we have made it our mission to provide nothing but the highest quality legal guidance for individuals seeking assurance through estate planning.

Areas of estate planning we cover include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Healthcare
  • Guardianships

Without a legalized plan for your estate, the power to decide what happens to your money, property, and loved ones falls to the court system. This means that California estate and probate laws will dictate your family's future. Our lawyers are committed to ensuring that you retain control over your estate so that you can feel confident that your loved ones are supported when you are no longer able to take care of them.

Your Financial Needs are Our Top Priority

The attorneys at the Law Offices of James C. Shields care about your unique case and want to help you understand the legal processes of bankruptcy and estate planning so that you can stop worrying about finances and focus on what truly matters to you.
