    If a creditor violates the bankruptcy discharge by trying to collect a debt that was included in the bankruptcy, we will sue that creditor in federal court to stop the harassment. Debts are bought and sold by collection companies all the time. This even happens with debts included in a bankruptcy that are no longer legally collectible. You should be free of these claims after your bankruptcy - and we will take the step needed to make the ceditor sorry they tried to collect that debt.

    28 years, 25 cases

Debt problems do not have to be "forever".  My husband and I each have more than 15 years of experience in resolving debt issues using the power of the bankruptcy laws.  We are both members of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and are well aware of how bankruptcy affects your life and credit.

 

YOu will receive individual attention, from the time of the first consultation until long after the bankruptcy case has been concluded.  Assisting in post-bankruptcy credit report reviews, filing papers to have state court judgments marked as discharged, suing creditors who continue to attempt collection after a bankruptcy is discharged - these are all services we provide.

 

Just as every teacher, doctor, pastor, and even friends are different, every attorney is different in their approach.   We don't have a fancy office, wear expensive suits, or drive luxury cars.  This lets us keep our fees reasonable.  We will answer your questions, return phone calls and keep you upo-to date on your case.  Call us today at 804-706-1355 and take the first step to financial freedom

First and hopefully last bankruptcy
Shortly after Covid got it's grip on Virginia Ms. Hovenden still took my bankruptcy case. From start to finish she fully explained everything that was going on. My bankruptcy case was handled professionally and was over before I knew it!

Money Very Well Spent
I was filing a Chapter 13 on my own, and soon realized I was in far over my head. Therefore, because we wanted a lawyer nearby to Fredericksburg, we contacted Jeanne Hovenden. It was the best decision we could have made. She was approachable, friendly, and most importanlt, knowledgabe. She set to work fixing our mistakes, and put us back on track in short order. That was 5 years ago, and during the process, she promply answered our questions, and kept us informed. We never felt like she had taken the money and forgot about us, but was a true advocate. We never thought we would get there, but 5 years later, we recieved our discharge. Thanks in no small part to the tireless efforts and encouragement, of Jeanne Hovenden

Need for bankruptcy
I was overwhelmed with my financial situation when I went to see Attorney Jeanne Hovenden. She is an incredibly knowledgeable attorney and knew right away what was needed to be done to get me out of the crisis I was in. She gave me the steps and direction I needed, along with the reassurance that I was doing the right thing. She was always available to answer my many questions and concerns! She was genuinely concerned about what I was going through. I feel she truly wanted what was best for me. If it wasn't the right decision to file a bankruptcy, I have no doubt she would have been honest and told me. The cost was also very reasonable. She is an excellent attorney that knows her job well! She gets 5 stars from me!

Excellent administrative and legal counsel
Ms. Hovenden provided exceptional legal counsel and guidance throughout the entire Chapter 11 process, from my initial consultation throughout the five years to the eventual dismissal of the case. I would utilize her again and I have referred other friends to her.

Jeanne was such a great assest in our life when we were going thru a very difficult financial time in our life. She was there every step of the way. When we met with her she carefully explained what we needed to do and answered all of our questions. When I sent emails about things I didn't quite understand,she gave me a very quick response andanswered all questions in detail. I would recommend her to everyone that need an attorney in a very difficult time. She is a very patient and caring person. YOU ARE BEST JEANNE!!!!! Thanks for being there for us!!!!

I would recommend Jeanne Hovenden for all bankruptcy needs.
My wife and I came upon some difficult financial times and turned to Jeanne for guidance. Jeanne never made us feel ashamed of our situation and tirelessly exhausted through all of our options. Ultimately, we decided to file a Chapte 7 bankruptcy. Due to out situation Jeanne worked with us for approximately two years until we finally received our descharge. During that time she promptly answered questions, ammended the filing accordingly, and was always honest with us. I have had the opportuntiy to refer Jeanne business already and will continue to do so as the opportunities arise. I hope no one has to endure the stress of a bankruptcy, but if they do Jeanne is the right attorney for the job. Her knowledge and compassion are unsurpassed.
