After practicing bankruptcy law for over 25 years, I have filed thousands of cases serving Bristol ,Plymouth and surrounding counties, and all with sucessful results. We have participated in free semiars for legal aid agencies, have spoke at bar association presentations and have successfuly made case law in Homestead protection in the case of In Re: Correia 01-17333CJK . The loss of income from the Covid 19 pandemic has caused many people to lose income and fall behind on their debt. Our office can help you in getting out of that debt and protect you from law suits, wage attachements, reposessions and foreclosures. Having had so much exposure to a so many individual circumstances, there is no situation I have not encountered in consumer bankruptcy law. I have been consulted by many attorneys with bankruptcy questions due to the reputation I have worked hard to develope over the last 25 years. At times, bankruptcy may be the means to an end of civil litigation for many defense attorneys as many defense attorneys have called for our assistance have sent clients to us to put an end to litigation.  I have represented consumers from simple and basic bankruptcy to consumers facing law suits for wrongful death claims and others with million dollar plus debts.  We offer a no cost consultation to explore your needs and concerns and receive our recomendation on how you should  rebuild your financial security again. If you would like to meet with us, your consultation will be confidential and informal and at no cost to you. We look forward to meeting with you  to explore what we can do to help you regain that wonderful feeling of being debt free. You can call for an informal discussion anytime at no cost to you.  Feel free to cal me at.

Bankruptcy Lawyer
Anthony was the lawyer of my bankruptcy case . He explained things until I understood them and even gave me legal advice as far as a tenant issue I was having at home and was able to get me in contact with someone who could help me . He invested his time and effort and his secretary Jen is very organized and reminded me of things that would have slipped my mind . Thank you to the Anthony Bucacci Attorney Team !
