Protect Your Assets
We will protect ALL of your assets, including your home, car, bank accounts, and tax refunds. Many people believe that they will lose all their property if they file bankruptcy. This is absolutely FALSE. People file bankruptcy in order to protect their assets from creditors. None of your assets will ever be at risk in any case we file for you.
Your case will be kept completely CONFIDENTIAL at all times. From start to finish, the only people who will know about your case are your creditors, the court, your case trustee, and us. Do not believe what you may have read or people may have told you about bankruptcy being "public" knowledge. Yes, someone could go to the court and look up your case,but trust us, this just does not happen.
Rebuild Your Credit
Bankruptcy will not hurt your credit in the long run. In fact, for almost all of our clients, bankruptcy is the FASTEST way to improve credit. Why? Because the reality is that most people already have credit problems when they come to see us. Bankruptcy eliminates or restructures the debt people cannot pay. Once the debt is gone, people can pay all their bills on time and rebuild their credit. Even people with "good credit" who come to see us are often only a paycheck away from falling behind on their bills.
Avoid Debt Settlement
Stay away from debt settlement and credit counseling programs. They simply do not work and most of them are basically just scams. We know people want to pay their debt, so it's easy to fall victim to these programs. But less than 5 percent of people ever complete these debt settlement programs. There are also significant tax consequences to debt settlement programs. Filing bankruptcy is the only legally guaranteed way to resolve debt without the fear of creditors coming after you later or any tax consequences.
A Fresh Start
Filing bankruptcy does NOT make you a failure. No one files bankruptcy because they don't want to pay creditors. People seek protection from creditors because of unexpected and unfortunate life events, such as illness, job loss, and divorce. I can promise you that almost EVERY client I have represented was a good and honorable person that encountered difficult personal or financial issues they never expected to face. You will recover from your current financial struggle and be stronger than you are today.
Affordable Legal Help
Bankruptcy is one of the LEAST expensive legal issues you will encounter in your life. Most Chapter 7 cases cost around $1,000, and we are happy to set up payment arrangements for you. We are not a cut-rate, discount law firm, but we can certainly charge less than our competitors because we are very efficient at what we do. Yes, it's true that you get what you pay for, but it's equally true that you do not have to overpay for good, professional representation.
