Our Practice

We work closely with consumers and business owners, handling all matters related to:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We represent individuals and businesses who want to permanently discharge debt through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. We will help you determine whether you qualify for protection under the new bankruptcy laws, according to the bankruptcy means test, and, if so, will help you understand which debts may be discharged, such as credit card debts, as well as what assets you can protect.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy. For consumers who don't qualify under Chapter 7 or who want to repay their creditors, we will help you put together a plan to reorganize or restructure your debt. We will work directly with your creditors, the trustee and the bankruptcy court to establish repayment plans that are within your means.
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy. We develop business plans for business owners to protect the business and develop work-out arrangements for the reorganization of the business and payment of business debt.
  • Loan modifications. In order to keep your home, it may be possible to seek a loan modification under the new Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). This can help you pay manageable payments on your home while satisfying the terms of the loan with the lender.

We strive to help clients understand fair debt collection practices, along with the effects of bankruptcy on all aspects of their lives and debts. It is important to us that clients understand all of their options before moving forward with a potential resolution to their bankruptcy situation.

In our experience, divorce and bankruptcy are often interrelated. If you recently went through a divorce or are contemplating a divorce and are wondering if a personal bankruptcy filing will help you get the fresh start you need, see our page on bankruptcy and divorce.
