WE SOLVE FINANCIAL PROBLEMS. We provide legal services and personal attention to individuals and small businesses. We are able to stop creditor harassment, foreclosures, repossessions, lawsuits, garnishments, tax levies, and utility shutoffs.


Attorney Michael K. Hoverson has handled thousands of bankruptcy cases in his 28 years of practice ;however, he does not run a bankruptcy “mill”. Every client gets individual attention from Michael K. Hoverson.


We will review your situation and advise you as to whether Chapter 7 , Chapter 13, or some other non-bankruptcy alternative is in your best interests. Not only will we look at your current situation, but also the long term affects of your financial decisions. We will work with you and advise you on how to set up your own budget to get you back to financial health.
