We Help You Find Financial Relief

We provide efficient legal solutions that will protect your assets and resolve difficult financial issues so you can be hopeful for the future.

  • Are your financial problems keeping you awake at night?
  • Have you unplugged your phone to avoid harassing calls?
  • Are you feeling depressed and having bad thoughts?

We know how you feel. Many of our clients felt like there was no way out of their situation…and that there never would be.

There comes a point at which financial difficulties turn into more than that. But sometimes a visit with a bankruptcy attorney can do more to relieve your sadness and despair than any psychotherapist will ever do. You don’t need someone to help you “think happy thoughts.” You need someone to help you get yourself out of debt.

That’s our job. It’s what we do.

Top 3 Myths About Bankruptcy

Not everything you’ve heard about bankruptcy is true. In fact, there are several myths about bankruptcy floating around. And if you buy into these myths, you may never take action to get yourself out of a difficult situation – one that seems to be escalating.

Truth: Bankruptcy is easy to file when you meet the legal criteria to do so. In fact, more bankruptcies are being filed in America now that at any other time in history.

If bankruptcy is something you’re considering and you’d like to know whether or not you are eligible to file, please pick up the phone and give us a call. Our initial client consultation is complimentary. There is no charge…no obligation…and we can help you make the best decision for you and your family.

You’ll be amazed at the relief you will feel when just this one simple question is answered:

“Am I eligible to file bankruptcy?”

And we can answer that question for you in a single consultation.

Truth: One big reason people hesitate to file bankruptcy is the fear of losing important assets. If you’re concerned about your house and cars, it’s time you know the truth. Bankruptcy can help you keep your house and your car. In fact, bankruptcy can stop foreclosure, prevent a bank from repossessing vehicles and even get your car back if it has been repossessed.

Truth: The three biggest causes of bankruptcy are: medical bills, job loss, and divorce. While job loss is a contributor, you should know that you don’t have to be unemployed to file bankruptcy. And on the other hand, having a good or even a great job doesn’t prevent you from filing either! People who are unemployed, employed, self-employed and even “rich” file bankruptcy every day. What matters is your ability to meet your financial obligations (i.e., debt payments) or not.
