What might a financial "Fresh Start" mean to you? Do you know that Congress passed the Bankruptcy laws to give you that Fresh Start? Do you know how to determine if this is for you?

Debt relief through discharge of debts in Chapter 7 or restructuring debts in Chapter 13 bankruptcy. My primary concern is to assist clients to achieve what is in their best interest, and my attention to detail means that the bankruptcy process goes more smoothly for you.
A bankruptcy attorney can help you manage personal or business debts you are unable to pay. Bankruptcy laws allow people and businesses to (1) get a “fresh start” by relieving most debts; and (2) repay the money owed to all creditors as fairly as possible. When you file for bankruptcy protection, all other legal actions against you are put on hold. Creditors cannot sue you, garnish your wages, repossess your car or home entertainment system, or start or continue with a foreclosure action against your home. There are different types of bankruptcy filings and each has its own advantages. Since bankruptcy can significantly impact your future purchasing power and credit rating, you should see a bankruptcy attorney to make sure the benefits of filling bankruptcy outweigh the consequences.
