I have been practicing bankruptcy law since 1999, first in Chicago, then in Seattle after moving here in 2003. I also have experience in family law. I am an active member of the King County Bar Association and the Kitsap County Bar. I am fluent in Spanish and have helped many Spanish speakers in my career. Before practicing bankruptcy I worked at the ACLU in Chicago.
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.
