  • Focused Services

    To ensure that you get the undivided attention you deserve, we are focused solely on bankruptcy services. This allows us to hone in on our skills and take on the more complicated cases that may involve litigation that other law firms may not take on.

  • Affordability

    When you're facing financial trouble, we understand that the last thing you want to deal with is steep legal fees. Not only do we offer free consultations and payment plan options, but we also allow a deposit and payment after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases.

  • Personalized Attention

    We take the time to sit down and meet with clients, both in-person and virtually, to plan out your unique solution and personally take care of documents and filing. Since we are a multi-attorney law firm, our attorney to client ratio allows for more personalized service.

The 3 Steps of Bankruptcy

Every bankruptcy is different and specific to your individual circumstances. There are several universal elements to a bankruptcy filing.

First, you must formally file for bankruptcy with the appropriate local court. Our team can identify what type of bankruptcy you qualify for, what documents you will need, and where you should file them. As soon as you file, you will benefit from the automatic stay, a court order that prevents all collection actions. This means that bankruptcy can be used to stop collection lawsuits, repossession, foreclosure, and creditor harassment.

Second, you will complete the bankruptcy process with the proper advice from your attorney. The specifics of the process depend on the type of bankruptcy you file for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves discharging unsecured debt, while Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy focus on reorganization. Our lawyers will work with and advocate for you at each step of the way.

Third and finally, you will have the opportunity to discharge unsecured debts. This means you will generally be able to discharge credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and more. We will help strategize on how best to leverage dischargement and position yourself to address any obligations that cannot be generally discharged.

What Makes Us Different

Every element of our firm is designed with our clients in mind. Because we are a multi-lawyer firm, we have many years of collective experience and can give each client the personalized attention that they deserve. Our exclusive focus in bankruptcy also allows us to take on the most difficult and complicated cases.

We offer same-day appointments and assist with emergency bankruptcy filings, helping clients prevent foreclosure, repossessions, and wage garnishments from taking effect. No matter how aggressive your creditors are, we will help avoid and mitigate the worst consequences of debt.

Our team gives our clients the respect that they deserve. We are compassionate to the stress inherent to living with debt and do everything possible to help you navigate the bankruptcy process as efficiently and painlessly as possible.
