Milby Law Offices, PA

Firm Overview

Our firm focuses on helping individual clients get on firm financial ground either through debt settlement, credit restoration, bankruptcy services or defending clients in legal actions filed by their creditors. We serve our corporate clients by helping them to collect debts owed to them or representing them as creditors in bankruptcies.

I began practicing law in 1992 as an attorney for a trustee in bankruptcy. I later started my own practice in 1994 representing corporate clients in collection matters and both debtors and creditors in bankruptcies. My expanded practice areas include Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 debtor and creditor representation, debt settlement, credit restoration, corporate collection, and collection defense.

Example cases

I regularly represent families who never expected to have to file for bankruptcy. Often times, individuals or couples experience unexpected circumstances such as the loss of a job or illness in the family leaving them overwhelmed financially. I take great joy in being able to help clients obtain a fresh start. Debt settlement is particularly rewarding, especially when I am able to settle all debts and return funds to the client.

Being a family business,
People often have misconceptions or negative associations about filing for bankruptcy, but that should not be the case. When you are drowning in consumer or medical debt or facing wage garnishment, you have options under the law to get debt relief.

You can get DEBT relief.

For many people, overwhelming debt is caused by a situation beyond their control. Job loss, divorce, and medical conditions can all put stress on finances to the point where you can no longer keep up. You are being harassed by creditors and it is understandable that you are worried about the future. You may have many questions and concerns about how bankruptcy works.

At MILBY LAW OFFICES, P.A. we are focused on helping you successfully navigate this rocky period. Wew will sit down with you and discuss which bankruptcy option is best for your unique situation. Whether it is Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, we are committed to helping you get back on your feet and moving toward a brighter tomorrow.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I have always enjoyed the area of bankruptcy since I was introduced to it in law school. Upon graduation from law school I began working for a bankruptcy trustee. Bankruptcy is a good fit for my personality and I love being able to help clients obtain a fresh start on their lives. Debt settlement was a natural progression for those clients who wanted to avoid bankruptcy and had the assets available to do so.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I encourage clients to be proactive and educate themselves, but they should take care as there is a lot of wrong information that is readily available. It is not unusual for clients to sit down with me and tell me what they read on the internet or something that a coworker told them that is absolutely wrong. There are very few situations in which a client should represent themselves. I have witnessed several cases in which an individual has chosen to represent themselves and, because they did not understand all of the laws and obligations, ended up costing themselves more than they would have spent to hire an attorney.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review documents prepared by existing clients if they request I do so.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Clients are not encouraged in the bankruptcy arena to represent themselves because of the dire consequences that it can bring. However, I am willing to help clients with loan modifications, debt settlement, and credit report issues.
