  2. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    35%
    A Chapter 7 bankruptcy begins with the filing of a bankruptcy petition. The petition will contain a list of your assets, debts, income and expenses. The trustee, who is an attorney appointed by the Bankruptcy Court, will oversee your matter. He or she is looking for assets that can be sold with the proceeds going to pay back your creditors. Under the Bankruptcy Law, certain property is exempt meaning the trustee cannot take it from you.

  3. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    25%
    Chapter 13 is a payment plan in which you make monthly payments to the Bankruptcy Trustee over a certain period of time (usually 3-5 years). The reason some people may choose to file a Chapter 13 instead of a Chapter 7 is that they have a home with equity that exceeds the exemption amount. If they were to file a Chapter 7 under that circumstance, they could lose their home. Therefore, they file a Chapter 13 so that they can keep their home.

Excellent Real Estate Attorney
Benjamin Ginter represented us in the recent sale of our house and it was an absolute pleasure working with him. He is very knowledgeable and has a strong work ethic. We felt at ease throughout the entire process, as he was available to answer our questions quickly and thoroughly. We felt that he had our best interest in mind. We highly recommend him.

Good Cranford/Westfield real estate attorney
I found Ben through Hyatt Legal Plans, and he did a very nice job on our house closing. The closing day itself was particularly seamless. We had a number of questions throughout the process, and Ben was responsive over email and phone. He also knew and had a good working relationship with the sellers attorney. This made the process easier.

Responsive, skillful and patient
We used Mr Ginter for our wills and liked him so much we used him to sell a home and to buy a home. Mr Ginter was amazingly calm, collected, and professional when negotiating with the sellers unreasonable lawyer. His expertise and knowledge were essential to us considering were have never sold a house before. He always made us feel like we were his only client. He was very responsive and never rushed us. We would recommend him to everyone.

Communicative, Helpful,
I found Mr. Ginter through the Hyatt Legal Plan that my employer offers. He worked on a house purchase for our family, and he was the best lawyer you could ask for. He is very responsive through all means of communication and often responds to emails within 2 hours or less. He was very good at explaining a lot of the legal jargon that I was not familiar with so I could understand it better. Even through the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to close on time without any hiccups. I highly recommend Benjamin Ginter!

Excellent Service, Excellent Attorney
I used Ben for the closing on my home after finding him through my company’s Hyatt Legal Group. Ben is an extremely through and knowledgeable attorney. He help make my home-buying process so smooth and efficient. He was always responsive (day, nights, and weekends) with any questions. In addition, he is an extremely nice person and such a pleasure to work with. At my closing, he went over in great detail the journey I’m about to embark on as a first time homeowner. Can’t thank Ben enough for all your hard work !

Top Notch and Detail Oriented Attorney
I have hired Benjamin (Ben) Ginter three times over the past two years. Ben represented me on two house closings (purchase and sale of same property) and for personal will service. I highly recommend Ben as he pays attention to details, listens attentively, explains thoroughly and will work within your schedule. Most recently, Ben handled the closing of my house in NJ while I was relocating to another State. He had no problem working with me during off business hours and answering adhoc questions. He is a great lawyer and I was at ease knowing that he had everything under control and my best interests were of his utmost priority.

Excellent service
We first used Ben for our house closing after finding him by chance through Hyatt Legal Group. We were so happy with Ben's patience and dedication that since moving to our new house (with Ben's help), we 3 years later chose to drive 30 minutes to see him for our Wills and Advanced Directives. I feel so comfortable asking Ben questions in person, over phone, and email. He is extremely responsive and thorough. Cannot recommend him enough!

2 Closings 1 Day
My wife and I worked with Ben on the sale and purchase of our homes. Ben is great to work with. He provides sound advice. Most importantly Ben was responsive, not only to my wife and I, but all parties in the transaction which helped move things along smoothly.

House Sale
Benjamin provided us legal support in the sale of our house in Cranford. He made the process very smooth and thorough. We appreciated that he made himself available for any questions that we had, and got his opinion on how to proceed with specific questions. We also appreciated his use of digital communications like e-mail. Benjamin ensured we were prepared for each step in the process and prepared us well in advance. We closed on time and all estimates provided were in line with expectations. Thank You!!!!
