Bankruptcy
We are a debt relief agency and counsel clients concerning relief from oppressive debts, including medical debts, credit cards, repossessions, garnishments and judgment liens.
In our current economy, it is not unusual for clients to suffer financial distress. Frequently, clients have financial arrangements that are more complex than they are able to handle. Sometimes they have made bad investments, have been defrauded, are over leveraged or have suffered upheavals in their personal livesthe loss of a job, the loss of a spouse through death or divorce, the loss of income due to a chronic medical condition, etc. We examine our clients' total financial picture and consult with them about possible alternatives. For years we have represented creditors in the bankruptcy court. The Martin Conway Law Firm has put the knowledge gained from years of experience representing creditors to use in helping debtors obtain the elimination or restructuring of their debts through a bankruptcy filing. It is often better to obtain a fresh start through bankruptcy than to continue making interest only payments to credit card companies and mortgage holders without any corresponding reduction in the principal amounts owed. We have offices in Woodbridge, Fredericksburg and Richmond, Virginia.

Chapter 7

In a Chapter 7, the client is discharged from most debts, including deficiencies from foreclosures, judgment liens, and credit card debt and is able to live without the burden of crushing debt.

Chapter 13

Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection allows clients to restructure and in many cases reduce their unsecured debt into a far more manageable monthly payment over a 3 to 5 year period.
