This has given me a perspective that makes me more effective than attorneys who handle only one or the other side.

If you owe more money than you can afford to repay over time, you may benefit from a Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney's services. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the person that owes the money is usually relieved of financial obligations and given a fresh financial start. However, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy may also require you to sell some of your assets to pay your debts. Chapter 7 bankruptcy can also affect creditors, who often receive very little money from these settlements. Because new bankruptcy laws are constantly written and existing laws modified, Chapter 7 attorneys can help debtors and creditors cope with bankruptcy issues and decisions.
