Whether you are facing bankruptcy or looking to plan your estate to ensure the financial security of your loved ones, our attorneys have extensive experience with and knowledge of the legal processes that can help you find the peace of mind you're seeking.

Your Best Options for Bankruptcy

The term, "bankruptcy," has a negative connotation of fear and desolation. Ironically, the bankruptcy system was designed to offer hope and relief to those drowning in debt. Declaring bankruptcy is your best chance at finding your way out of financial holes, and our practiced attorneys can help you understand the most efficient route to take according to your needs.

Two of the most commonly declared chapters of bankruptcy include:

  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 13

Each chapter has unique benefits and ramifications that we can help you evaluate. Depending on your individual case, you may find the immediate debt relief that a Chapter 7 liquidation of assets offers to be ideal. However, if you want to ensure that some of your more significant assets, such as your home or car, are not foreclosed or repossessed, the resolution of debt over a longer period of time through Chapter 13 might be the preferred method of declaring bankruptcy.

We can help you assess your financial needs to help you determine which path is right for you. Our lawyers know that relief comes in many forms and is unique to each of our clients. With our help, you don't have to be intimidated by bankruptcy.
