Our Services

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Protect your future income from your creditors. Chapter 7 gets rid of your debts but allows you to keep your exempt property. For most people, this means you can go through bankruptcy and keep your home, your car, and your retirement, along with many other important assets.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Protect your assets. Stop foreclosure, repossession, wage garnishee, & bank garnishee. Establish a payment plan under Court Order that your creditors must accept. Chapter 13 is often the best option for those individuals whose income is too high to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.


Stop foreclosure of your home. Stop foreclosure of your rental and investment property, too. Stop foreclosure even if a sale date has been set by the Sheriff. Chapter 13 will force your lender(s) to accept your regular monthly mortgage payments and give you up to five years to catch up the payments you have missed. Chapter 13 will stop a tax sale of your home.  

Tax Discharge

Get rid of old income taxes, including the IRS, State Income Tax, and Municipal Income Tax. Repay old employment or sales taxes without additional penalty. Catch up your property taxes even if your real estate tax certificate has been sold to a tax lien buyer.

Discharge Violations

Bankruptcy provides a discharge of your debt. Discharge is a permanent injunction, or Court Order, that prevents your creditors from collecting—now and in the future. If a creditor attempts to collect a discharged debt, you need to know your rights and you need a law firm that can protect your rights.

Reestablish credit

Bankruptcy is often the first and best step in establishing good credit again. Bankruptcy often makes it possible to obtain a home mortgage or refinance your existing home, get a car loan, and obtain other needed consumer debt.

Student Loans

Determine whether you qualify for a hardship discharge, or manage defaulted student loans by establishing a payment plan that you can afford.
