Are you faced with bankruptcy?

If you are drowning in debt and desperate for relief, you do have legal options available to you that can help. Our bankruptcy lawyers have extensive familiarity with the process of declaring bankruptcy and the ways in which it can help you resolve your debt.

We can help you understand the pros and cons of the following:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

The different chapters of bankruptcy include policies and processes that may or may not be advantageous to you. Generally, if you have few significant properties and want a fresh start, Chapter 7 bankruptcy calls for liquidation of your assets in order to immediately pay off any debts. Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the better option for you if you want to retain any significant assets and, instead, pay off your debt over time. In order to form the best plan for your debt relief, we can discuss your case to determine which option is right for you.
