About Bruce

Learn Bruce’s areas of practice.

We know how to help you.  Whether you have medical bills, credit card debt, a repossession debt or just over your head in bills, we can assist you to financial freedom  and a fresh start.   We can advise you on the best course of action, whether it be a bankruptcy solution, a credit counseling plan or a loan modification.  We can get you the right course of action to  obtain financial freedom and a fresh start.  Be debt free doubt, filing bankruptcy will be one of the hardest decisions you will ever make.  We tell our clients who are carrying a large debt burden to look down the road 3 to 5 years and if they do not see their financial situation substantially  improving through a large salary increase, inheritance or other new source of income, then it is probably time to consider getting a fresh start now.  You can wait another 5 years, but you can also obtain financial freedom now through YOUR HOME FROM FORECLOSURE
If you are facing a foreclosure, we can help you.  Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure and give you the chance to keep your home.  Chapter 13 allows you to pay back your mortgage default over 5 years and to start fresh with your regular monthly payments.  In addition, Chapter 13 allows you to pay all of your other debts, credit cards , medical bills, and even your IRS debt through the Chapter 13 you are facing a car or truck repossession, or if your vehicle was just taken, call our office to stop the process and keep the vehicle.  Chapter 13 bankruptcy can solve this problem.  We can work out a new payment plan with the lender to catch up on the back payments or to pay for the vehicle in full through the Chapter 13 Plan.  Often the car payment will be lower than the payment you are paying now, and we can reduce the interest rate as well.  Don't let a repossession cause you to lose you car or truck.  Don't let a repossession prevent you from getting to your job.

If you are facing financial hardship or filing BANKRUPTCY you REALLY NEED to go and talk with Bruce White. I was told about Bruce by someone who used Bruce to get him out of FINANCIAL RUINS like myself, and I am SO HAPPY that I listened to him. Bruce White is VERY Easy to talk with (unlike most attorneys) who heard you in and heard you out. Bruce and Gail (Office manager) took the time with me about the paperwork I needed and answered EVERY question completely. Then handled my swiftly and concisely and getting me the results that he told me. I can't thank Bruce White enough for giving me the 2nd chance I needed to rebuild my life. Also Thanks to Gail as well. In ending, I would say at least talk with Bruce White before you use another attorney, You will not be sorry. Thanks again. Gene C.

Best Bankruptcy Lawyer in town
Mr. White and his staff were so helpful and made this whole process so much easier than I was anticipating. He answered all of my questions with patience and understanding and treated us with the utmost respect. At our court hearing, he was the only lawyer who had his act together -- He knew our case, he had provided all of the documents and we felt like he was the best lawyer there. I have referred several friends to him. Although I hope to never need his services again, I would not hesitate to go back to Mr. White. He is the best.
