Free Bankruptcy and Personal Injury Consultations
Nearly 40 years ago, our bankruptcy firm was one of the first law practices to offer free consultations to potential bankruptcy clients. It is our mission to educate, inform and empower people about their legal options for dealing with debt. We believe information goes a long way toward helping with the stress of filing bankruptcy.
After a traumatic accident resulting in personal injuries, we understand how difficult it can be to make sense of what has occurred and determine your best course of action. You often feel helpless and overwhelmed by the stress of being injured, out of work, and now the slow process of recovering from your injury.
When you’re hurt and your world is turned upside down, it is very difficult to get back on your feet, especially when you now have the added stress of managing your personal injury claim with the insurance company
Unfortunately, dealing directly with the insurance company is demanding and exhausting. It’s not designed to be a simple and easy process, but rather a complex and tedious process that requires skill, knowledge, patience, and persistence. The insurance company treats you differently if you’re unrepresented by an attorney and attempting to navigate the process on your own – they will attempt to minimize your claim and offer a low settlement to conclude your claim and escape paying a larger settlement. They do this by making the process difficult and overly complicated, requiring that you provide extensive documentation and records to prove your injury, and being stubborn and slow to respond. The fact is, they are hoping that you will simply go away. Personal Injury Law
Our bankruptcy attorneys have a combined 150 years experience practicing before the United States’ Bankruptcy Courts. We have filed tens of thousands of bankruptcy cases for consumers. We have the experience to see to it that whatever situations arise during your case, you are represented by an attorney with the tools to bring you the best result.
When you are unable to meet your obligations the burdens of debt can be destructive. Filing bankruptcy is a way to discharge your debt and get a fresh start. Nearly all of our clients find that they can keep their home, cars, retirement savings, and their other assets. Bankruptcy just allows them a fresh start and peace of mind.
Many people with debt problems find that the need to file bankruptcy is only part of their legal problems. Our representation of our bankruptcy clients is not limited to filing the bankruptcy. We routinely file lawsuits against creditors who harass our clients before, during or after a bankruptcy is filed. We work with our clients to ensure their credit reports are accurate after their bankruptcy is complete. Whatever problems you are having with a creditor before, during or after a bankruptcy can be handled by our firm.
