At Jeffrey B. Irby, P.C., in Huntsville, we have been helping and Northern Alabama clients obtain a fresh financial start and taking away the risk of foreclosure, repossession and seizure for more than 15 years.
Our firm starts by helping you determine whether bankruptcy is a good option for you. We explain the law in a clear, comprehensible way that shows the benefits of filing for bankruptcy, as well as the long-term effects on your credit. We will help you understand the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy and discuss which one might be appropriate for your circumstances.
Helping You Take Control Of Your Finances
We want you to understand the law well enough to make informed decisions, which gives you a greater sense of control over the process. Knowing you are making the right decisions for yourself and your family is empowering. At our firm, we have found that bankruptcy clients who feel empowered and in control are better able to avoid financial trouble in the future.
As much as we enjoy helping each of our clients, we hope you only need to file for bankruptcy once. To that end, we go the extra mile for you. We explain the law and your options at the beginning of the process, but we also help you learn about managing your budget at the end. Your bankruptcy case could be filed with the court in a matter of days, but you can set up an appointment to discuss your case anytime.
