Our Bankruptcy Practice
Contrary to popular belief, the 2005 changes to federal bankruptcy law did not remove bankruptcy as a viable solution for all debt-ridden consumers. If you are facing mortgage foreclosure, automobile repossession, mounting credit card debt or huge medical bills, we can help. If you are buried in debt, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may offer relief.
