Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – Foreclosure – Car Repossession

Information regarding debt relief is available for you, and I would be happy to assist you with your financial problems. Bankruptcy is not something that anyone wants to do, but when you are in financial trouble it is an option that you should explore. Bankruptcy can give you a fresh start, eliminate your liability for existing debts, and stop collection efforts.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

I handle all matters related to Chapter 7 consumer bankruptcy filings, preparing and submitting the necessary documents, acting as your advocate, and providing representation for all proceedings or hearings throughout the process. I will help you determine whether you qualify to permanently discharge debts under Chapter 7 and will ensure that all exempt assets are protected from sale. Most of my clients are able to keep everything that they own. Whether it is personal debts or debts from a business, Chapter 7 can provide the needed relief. I also represent small businesses in Chapter 7 petitions.

A business generally has to close in order to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy that will liquidate the company assets and pay creditors what is available from those funds.
