Money matters are sensitive and personal, and there are not too many people that are anxious to discuss their financial affairs with someone they have just met for the first time. This is certainly a prudent way to conduct yourself, but the “close to the vest” approach can have a downside if you are having financial difficulties. A bankruptcy attorney can guide you toward an effective debt management solution, but you may feel a bit uncomfortable asking for help.
This is understandable and it is human nature, but you don’t have to be concerned. Our bankruptcy law firm has been assisting people for more than three decades, and we have worked with tens of thousands of clients in Oregon and Washington. Given our vast experience, there is no scenario that we haven’t seen before, and we always go the extra mile to make our clients feel comfortable throughout the whole process.
We get to know our clients, we put them at ease, and we answer all of their questions in a thorough but down to earth and understandable manner. For some individuals, a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy will be the best choice. With this form of bankruptcy, unsecured debts are discharged entirely, and you can usually maintain ownership of your home and your car if you are up-to-date on the payments. Other people will be better served by a Chapter 13 reorganization that allows a person to make payments over time until the debts are paid or discharged.
Our firm offers free case evaluations, so you have the opportunity to meet us and get to know your bankruptcy attorney before you make any firm commitments. This is a simple but effective way to break the ice, and we also make personal interactions quite convenient for people in many different parts of Oregon and Washington. We have offices in Portland, Eugene, Medford, Grants Pass, Coos Bay, Tigard, Bend, Klamath, Salem, Vancouver, and Tri-Cities, so you won’t have to travel very far to get sound legal counsel. If you will like to take the first step toward a comfortable financial future, send us a message through our contact page to request a consultation with a licensed OlsenDaines bankruptcy attorney.
