We are Western New York’s largest bankruptcy law office. During the past decade, our experienced team of bankruptcy attorneys has helped more than 5,000 consumers and businesses in Rochester and all surrounding communities obtain much-needed Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief. We know that the decision to file bankruptcy is not an easy one to make, but the process of filing a bankruptcy case is less complex than you think. You will be able to keep your home, car, and all other important assets, and the legal fees to file for bankruptcy protection are affordable. For most Chapter 7 cases, our legal fees are $695-$975, and Chapter 13 cases can generally be filed with only $300 in up-front legal fees.
The vast majority of people who file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Rochester and Western New York do so because they cannot repay their debt no matter how hard they try or what sacrifices they make in their budget. Many people around you may try to portray bankruptcy as “an easy way out,” but we know that for most people, filing bankruptcy is a last resort to protect themselves from the painful effects of debt problems. Almost all of our Rochester bankruptcy clients have considered or tried other debt relief options before they consult with our bankruptcy lawyers. We are strong advocates of the Bankruptcy System, and we believe that the Constitutional right to bankruptcy is actually underutilized by the people who need it most.
