Our Bankruptcy Services
Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding designed to help individuals and businesses eliminate their debts or to restructure and repay them under the protection of the Bankruptcy Court. Generally speaking, there are two types of bankruptcy—liquidation (Chapter 7) and reorganization (Chapters 11, 12 and 13). Both types of bankruptcy, liquidation and reorganization, have numerous rules and exceptions. Which Chapter is right for you is dependent upon your particular circumstances and objectives. As part of the services that we provide the attorneys of our firm listen closely to our clients and are sensitive to our clients’ needs and objectives while giving realistic advice as to the available options.

The federal government passed new bankruptcy reform legislation in October 2005. However, don’t be discouraged! Most studies indicate that the new law affects less than 15% of individuals who could have filed previously. If you are feeling overwhelmed by your debts and considering filing bankruptcy, it is highly probable that you fall into the category of the 85 percent of people who are still eligible to file.
