Chapter 7 Attorneys

Why hire a Chapter 7 attorney?

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney will help you discharge all eligible debts, while still keeping your home, household goods, and possibly your car. Although child support, alimony, and federal income taxes are not eligible for elimination, a bankruptcy lawyer can help you deal with financial situations you cannot control--such as large medical bills or being laid off--before you get overwhelmed with debt.
