We know that the decision to file bankruptcy can be very stressful. However, in these hard economic times, many people are finding it difficult to meet their financial obligations due to job loss, divorce, illness, and other events beyond their control. The federal bankruptcy laws were enacted with the specific intent to provide debtors a ‘fresh start” from overwhelming debt. Filing for bankruptcy does not have to be a traumatic event. In fact, it can actually put your mind at ease by stopping wage garnishments, repossessions and foreclosures, and the seemingly never-ending calls from creditors. We have helped hundreds of clients regain control and manageability of their finances through Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We can do the same for you.
Your family is probably the most important relationship you will ever have. However, not all relationships are created equal. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, divorce and disagreements are inevitable. Our experienced attorneys assist people going through a difficult divorce and/or child custody/visitation dispute with compassion and understanding. Our goal is to achieve optimal results for our clients while still attempting to maintain a harmonious environment for all involved.
