Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:
For individuals who find themselves in debt far over their heads with little or no chance of repayment, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a welcome relief. Designed to give honest individuals a fresh start, millions of people have taken advantage of this amazing component of our legal system. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can allow you to:
Wipe out most (if not all) of your debts.
Put an end to creditor calls, lawsuits, threatening phone calls, wage garnishments, repossessions and more.
Get court protection from creditors. As soon as the bankruptcy is filed, an 'automatic' stay goes into effect.
Harassment from collection agencies and other creditors will stop!
Gain back peace of mind and make a new start.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:
For those who simply don't have enough income to repay their debts but wish to retain their homes and other possessions, a Chapter 13 allows you to present a payment plan to your creditors taking into account sufficient income to allow you to maintain your family and home.
We will assist you by analyzing your financial situation to ensure that you cancel out the largest possible amount of your debts and keep all of the property you are legally entitled to. In addition, we will prepare and file all of the necessary forms and documents required by the Bankruptcy court and will represent you at all regularly scheduled meetings of creditors.
