I love being a bankruptcy lawyer because I can help almost everyone I see. Bankruptcy is about happy endings.

 

I've been a bankruptcy lawyer in Northern VA for more than twenty years, and I've helped more than fourteen thousand people get a new start in life.  I do the most Chapter 7 bankruptcies of any lawyer in Northern Virginia. We also offer Chapter 13 for the small number of people for whom Chapter 13 is better. 

We like Chapter 7 because it gives you a fresh start in five ways. the creditors can't call or bill you. they can't take you to court. Your credit score will improve. You'll sleep better. You'll be smarter.

 

I'm 67 years old, married and live with my (much younger) wife in Falls Church VA.  I'm a member of The Falls Church (Anglican).

Benchmark for Success
I contacted Mr. Weed when I was hard-pressed to pay a $26,000. bill to an agressive and intimidating creditor who had illigitametely billed me for sub-par services. Mr. Weed reviewed the various options that I could take in order to alleviate a debt and protect my assets. He was patient, thorough, and works tirelessly, sometimes seven days a week, to accomplish his case load in order to receive the best outcome for his clients. If you have a complicated case and need the highest level of expertise and legal representation that is available, you must contact Mr. Weed. Mr. Weed's integrity, experience and decorum is the highest standard for the legal profession in Bankruptcy Law; the benchmark for success!

I had the pleasure of having Mr. Robert Weed represent my bankruptcy case and it went exactly as he said it would from our first encounter to the very last. Do your part with getting what he needs from you and sit back and let him work his magic. Price is fair too.

Ivy League Professor or a Lawyer
Bob Weed is like a great professor who practices what he teaches. They say that successful realtors live and breathe real estate every day and Mr. weed is no different. He lives and breathes bankruptcy law. This is the first time that I have gone though the bankruptcy process and I really hope it would be the last one. Mr Weed has established a solid, stellar reputation as an exceptional lawyer. From my search when I was trying to find a lawyer, I came to know that he was well regarded by his clients and peers in the same same industry. He could be representing someone's dad or a son, or even a grandmother. If you have a family or friends in DMV area, who have been through bankruptcy process, the chances are that they have heard about Bob Weed or been helped by him. I had consultations with few of the very well known lawyers in the DC metro area. Since my case was a bit more complicated as I had to go through means test, not every lawyer would be up for that challenge. Another well known lawyer refused my case after initial our consultation because of the household income being higher than what would normally qualify you for bankruptcy. One thing that stood out about Mr Weed was his attention to minor details and I felt like if I was in front of a competent doctor trying to diagnose some mysterious illness. I had to go through a questionnaires and then, what Mr. Weed referred to as 'home work', after our initial consultation before he decided to take my case. I felt like I was back in school. I strongly feel that no matter what the circumstances, Mr. Weed will find a way to help you or advise you about the right time to move ahead with the bankruptcy process. In my case, the homework was for me to get all the facts and figures together about our household finances, including, expenses. Those would be the things that many people, especially, the ones considering bankruptcy, don't pay attention to or are totally unaware of. What an eye opener that was. Mr. weed is an excellent teacher that has a website full of resources with all the relevant information about the bankruptcy process and hundreds of valuable blog posts. I found our video consultations much easier option than having to go to a lawyer's office. He shared his wisdom, asked important questions and then after he took my case did his magic to make the whole process painless. One of the things that I found fascinating was the fact the he knows exactly what a creditor(each bank) is thinking, what to expect from each trustee, what to do or not do before and after your 341 meeting. He keeps himself updated on the new bankruptcy laws/rules and how it affects his clients. My 341 meeting went like a pleasant breeze. I am in my 60 day waiting period before I receive a formal discharge. Mr Weed has decades of experience in the bankruptcy industry and amazingly, has the energy of very young, ambitious lawyer. I hope I don't need Mr. weed services in the future but if I do or someone else that I know does, I would not even think about another attorney and will recommend him with full confidence without any hesitation.

I am new to Virginia. I was shopping for a bankruptcy attorney. I am what you call a true skeptic. Mr. Weed had many good reviews. I gave him a try and I am very satisfied. My student loan debt was discharged. I was always told that it has to be repaid. Thanks Robert Weed.

Highly Recommend!
Mr. Weed is an excellent bankruptcy lawyer! He and his team clearly outline what to expect with your case and what you, as his client, need to complete before your hearing. Even afterward he will sit down with you to go over your hearing outcome and follows up all the way through to receiving your discharge paperwork. Follow his instructions and you can't go wrong. They are there to help every step of the way!

I recommend Attorney Robert Weed to every one in need of a Bankruptcy Attorney
My Original Bankruptcy Attorney moved out of state about four years after I filed a chapter 13 Bankruptcy and he was released by the court. I contacted Mr. weed as I still had approx. six months or more left on my case. I can only say how much I wish that I had gotten Mr. Weed from the start. Their was still a lot of paper work left to file in my case. I was able to deal with Lori. Mr Weeds personal rep. on a daily basis by phone or e-mail if need, I always received an answer to my questions right a way she is a great person to deal with I felt that she was my best friend. What a great team and Mr weeds fee was more than reasonable.

One of the best Bankruptcy Lawyers
Very glad that I hired Robert Weed. He knows the nitty gritty bankruptcy law. Even after I was discharged a creditor mistakenly sent me a 1099c form. I contacted Mr. Weed and he responded within an hour. In all I will highly recommend this firm to anyone seeking such services.

Highly Qualified and Experienced Bankruptcy Attorney
If you are looking for a bankruptcy attorney that is experienced, professional, gives you the ultimate value for your hard earned money and has a stellar team running his operation, look no further Robert Weed is your man. The paperwork that Mr. Weed has you fill out before he meets with you may seem a tad daunting, but let me assure you that this man knows EXACTLY what he is doing and it is well worth it. Our initial meeting with Mr. Weed was amazing. He took his time to explain everything to us in great detail without having exchanged a single cent. He was running a bit late and in spite of that he did not rush us at all. At the end of our meeting there was no question that he would be our chosen attorney for our bankruptcy proceeding. Our assigned paralegal Valerie Settles is a consummate professional. Answering every single question that we had, and answered every single email and call without hesitation. The attorney who accompanied us to our 341 hearing Katlin Vaillancourt was incredibly personable , professional and answered all our questions and concerns as well. Amazing team of professionals at this law firm. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone seeking a bankruptcy attorney.
