The Bankruptcy Law Office of Mark S. Zuckerberg, P.C.

Firm Overview

The Bankruptcy Law Office was established in October 1991, and was designed from its inception to be a firm which concentrated exclusively in the area of bankruptcy law. As opportunities to address the needs of potential clients in other geographic areas increased, additional offices were opened over the years. We now have four locations to serve the consumer debtors in over 50 central Indiana counties. Since its beginning, the Bankruptcy Office has filed over 20,000 cases.

At our firm, we always focus on finding a legal solution that is in the best interest of each client. Although many of our clients do file for bankruptcy, filing bankruptcy is not the answer for every client with financial difficulties. We have the tools to explain other options for debt-relief and debt management that may provide more appropriate and effective solutions. We will not advise a client to file bankruptcy if we feel it is not the best option.

Example cases

Our bankruptcy office offers detailed information about the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Our attorneys also offer helpful information regarding debt consolidation, rebuilding your credit report, bankruptcy articles and personal finance -- everything you need to know about bankruptcy and how to begin your road to a fresh new life.

Helping consumers file bankruptcy is our area of expertise. The firm's bankruptcy attorneys only handle Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. With our firm, clients know their work is being handled by some of the most experienced bankruptcy attorneys in the country.

The right choice in legal help today can make a major difference when beginning to build for a better tomorrow.

Our bankruptcy lawyers can give you the immediate debt protection you need now plus help you find the best path to a financially stable future.

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

Bankruptcy was a natural fit for me, given the amount of client interaction and high level of satisfaction derived from helping others.

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

The more my client knows concerning the area of consumer bankruptcy, the easier it will be to determine what, if any, representation is necessary. That knowledge will also help to make the representation more successful.

I do have concerns over some of the misinformation that is available to potential clients over the internet. It can give clients unrealistic expectations as to what can be accomplished with regard to their individual situation.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We do review documents prepared by clients, particularly those who have seen certain other offices in the area, if they have completed worksheets and other forms. We use these forms as an additional source. However, we do our own document intakes with our own attorneys to ensure the quality of work produced.

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

Considering the complexity and the potential traps which can result in dismissal under the new amendments to the bankruptcy code, we usually strongly advise against acting pro se in a consumer bankruptcy case.

Mark Zuckerberg

Prior to opening the Bankruptcy Law Office, I worked at the state's premier corporate bankruptcy law firm. I focused on some of the largest corporate bankruptcy proceedings ever filed in the state.

I have over 20-years of experience helping good people through bad financial times.

I genuinely care about what I do and the clients I serve. I am passionate about my work, and a true student of my area of law. I am also good at seeing the big picture and developing theories and strategies for cases. I am knowledgeable, direct and highly regarded by my peers and the bench. I get to the bottom line efficiently and effectively.

Personal interests:

I especially enjoy spending time with my wife and family.
