About me

At Sheldon Law Office,
we view bankruptcy as part of a larger process of getting you restored
to financial health.  We will explore all your options, including deed
in lieu of foreclosure, debt settlement and loan modification, as well
as bankruptcy under Chapters 7, 11 and 13. 

 Following the discharge of debt, we will follow up with the credit
bureaus to make sure they are accurately reporting your credit
history.   We will also advise you how to increase your credit scores.
We care!


You are more than just a file to be rammed through a judicial
process.  You will receive close attention working one on one with a
bankruptcy attorney.  We understand that bad things happen to good
people.  Expect to be treated with compassion, dignity and respect. 

We have minimal overhead so we can keep our fees low without
compromising a superior level of service.   We use cutting edge
technologies to respond quickly and work efficiently.


Dean Sheldon is dedicated to achieving the best outcome for you.  It's time to stop worrying and give Dean a call!



We are a debt relief agency.  We help people file for relief under the bankruptcy code.
