Professional Counsel

There are many factors to consider before hiring a bankruptcy attorney.  Experience is an important factor because it shows how long an attorney has been practicing law and their level of knowledge.  It is also important to hire a lawyer that specializes in bankruptcy and is familiar with the Judges and Trustees.  Additionally, a lawyer’s reputation and reliability are key factors as is an ability to communicate with the attorney and to get your questions answered.

Filling a bankruptcy will automatically stay (freeze) all collection efforts being enforced against you, stop foreclosure against your home, stop wage garnishments, prevent property from being repossessed, discharge certain financial obligations and allow you to obtain a fresh start and achieve financial freedom.

By hiring an experienced bankruptcy attorney who understands how to apply proper exemption laws most people can protect their house, car, 401K, pension and most personal property.
