Our Practice
We focus our practice on the needs of individuals and businesses seeking debt relief, providing comprehensive counsel on:

Chapter 7 bankruptcy: We will help you determine whether you qualify to discharge your debts under Chapter 7, walking you through the means test required by the new bankruptcy law. We will prepare and file all the documents required to complete the process, and will act on your behalf in meetings or hearings with creditors, the bankruptcy trustee and the Court.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy: If you don't qualify for a Chapter 7 filing or you want to repay your creditors, we will help you put together a plan for the reorganization of your debt through a Chapter 13 filing.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy: We advise businesses that seek to restructure or reorganize debts under Chapter 11. A Chapter 11 is not an easy process but can be a good alternative in certain situations. Also, individuals who do not qualify under the debt limits of Chapter 13 can many times obtain relief under Chapter 11.

Alternatives to bankruptcy: We can also help you identify ways to resolve financial problems without filing for bankruptcy protection, including negotiating loan modifications, applying for debt consolidation, or seeking structured settlements.
Bankruptcy is not a failureit's a fresh start.
