My Strengths As A Bankruptcy Attorney

We pride ourselves on the individual attention we give each and every client and each and every case. I personally will sit down with you at the initial consultation and answer al of your questions. We will go over your credit report together. We provide a copy of your credit report as part of our fees. We also provide the credit counseling classes you are required to take, again as part of our fees — we don’t charge extra for that.

Do I Really Need To Give Up My Possessions During Bankruptcy?

There are many misperceptions about bankruptcy that people worry about. To put your mind at ease, I like to explain to my clients how the process works.

When you file for bankruptcy, a “bankruptcy estate” is created. That means that in a broad sense you don’t potentially own anything anymore. Instead, your bankruptcy estate owns everything that you owned. However, in reality it works a bit differently. There are a series of state law exemptions that we use when we file a bankruptcy. If we exempt something from the bankruptcy estate, it means that it doesn’t become part of the bankruptcy and you get to keep it.
