What we can do for you
Our firm will evaluate your situation to determine if personal bankruptcy chapter 11, chapter 7 or whatever is the solution that will serve you best. We take the time to review all aspects of your finances and suggest the solution that will bring you the most relief.
Chapter 7 is the most widely-known type of personal bankruptcy, and it involves the use of income and liquidation of all non-exempt assets to repay as much debt as possible. In return, the court forgives any and all remaining debt.Learn More
Personal bankruptcy Chapter 11 is the most complex of all the bankruptcies, yet it offers a great level of flexibility than other chapters and can offer greater benefits to the consumer who doesn't meet the criteria for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.Request Free Case Evaluation
Chapter 12 personal bankruptcy is intended to help family farmers and fishermen with regular annual income. Similar to Chapter 13 bankruptcy, Chapter 12 bankruptcy enables debtors to create a payment plan to repay all or part of their debts.Request Free Case Evaluation
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows an individual to resolve serious debt issues without the need to liquidate personal assets in order to repay creditors. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is less damaging to credit, as the debts are being paid through an arranged plan.Request Free Case Evaluation

What is a Deficiency Balance and What Can I Do About It?
A deficiency balance is a result of a sale of property, such as a car, boat, or home that was repossessed or foreclosed upon, but the amount of money from the sale was insufficient to cover the amount owed. Your creditor may then go to court in order to obtain a deficiency judgment against you in order to collect the remaining balance. If you have been notified that you have a deficiency balance, you could be looking at several actions that the holder of the judgement could take against you in order to collect.

About Our Zero Down Bankruptcy Option
While many people opt to pay for fees at once or on a retainer basis, some prefer to utilize our $0 Down payment option. Here's how it works: After you sign an engagement for services agreement with our firm, generally speaking, the court filing fees and costs will be paid up front. These can be waived in certain circumstances. You do not pay anything initially for our bankruptcy legal fees. We work out a payment plan with you, where you are aware of the fees in advance for our services. You'll pay on a monthly basis over 12 months until our fee is paid. Some clients find this help to allow them to meet all their obligations while the bankruptcy process proceeds. If you have further questions about our services or this option, please don't hesitate to contact our office.
