Take the First Step Toward a Future Free From the Heavy Burden of Debt

Bankruptcy is not the perfect solution for everyone, but it may be for you. The first step is to schedule an appointment. You will not be charged at your initial consultation and should you choose not to file for bankruptcy protection, you will have no obligation arising from it. We will ask that you bring a few items with you in order to assist the attorney in evaluating your situation. Go to our initial consultation page for a list of what to bring to your initial consultation. Remember, the more information we have regarding your financial picture, the better we will be able to advise you.

Why Experience Matters

Although you may have an attorney handling your bankruptcy petition, you are ultimately responsible for what you submit to the court. Bankruptcy is a complex legal process, and having an experienced attorney ensures that you will get the debt relief you deserve without any costly complications. It also ensures that you will not lose anything that you were entitled to keep. Bankruptcy law changes daily because the law is interpreted by judges, and therefore it is important that you have an attorney who stays current on the law.

The attorneys at our firm have more than 40 years of combined experience, attend two bankruptcy conferences annually, receive several periodicals on bankruptcy and consumer protection law, and utilize a powerful research system allowing them access to every case nationwide in order to better serve you and protect your interests.
