Helping you Find financial relief

Oftentimes, when people hear the word "bankruptcy" they associate it with negativity and sometimes shame. But bankruptcy can be the best option for getting out of debt. Debt that you would be stuck in longer than it takes for your credit score to rise back up after filing for bankruptcy.

You have different options and choices to make once you decide to take this route. You can either file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Each has its own benefits but to really understand which one is right for you, an attorney with experience is the best way to determine the best course of action.

Chapter 7 is also referred to as "Liquidation Bankruptcy." This chapter uses your assets to repay your debts and is usually for debtors who don't have the means to pay back all or some of their debts. Chapter 13 is known as a reorganization of your debts that establishes a payback plan that you can reasonably manage.

What ever your situation may be, I can help you understand your options and the possible outcomes of each decision you will have to make during the bankruptcy process.
