Bankruptcy is a legal solution to financial difficulties, sometimes the only solution and sometimes the BEST solution.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is usually the best solution for small business owners or when facing foreclosure: it allows the restructuring of loans and stops the foreclosure sale. It often strips away a second loan taken on the house, such as a HELOC.

On the other hand, Chapter 7 is the preferred solution for debtors overwhelmed with credit card debt or other forms of unsecured debt such as medical bills. Either Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will usually put an end to a lawsuit.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a sophisticated economic tool and a specialized area of expertise. Chapter 11 is a complex reorganization of one's finances. Our attorneys currently have a 85% confirmation rate with Chapter 11s and a nearly perfect rate with Chapter 7s and 13s.

The attorneys of Gravel Jirn file and confirm bankruptcy petitions under all three chapters: 7, 13 and 11, with a special emphasis on reorganization. We charge our clients a very competitive rate because we understand their predicament. Many of our clients have told us that we provided the lowest quote and we still came out on top in client satisfaction. We work intensely with trustees to limit our clients' exposure. Our attorneys have filed over 1,000 bankruptcy cases in the Northern, Eastern, Southern and Central districts of California with a very high degree of success.
