Pennsylvania Bankruptcy attorneys serving Bucks and Montgomery County:
At Adelstein & Kaliner, LLC we provide compassionate and creative legal representation to help you manage your excessive debt. While Bankruptcy is generally an area which is determined by federal law, state law may be applied for certain issues. The U.S. Supreme Court described the purpose of Bankruptcy in a 1934 decision, as follows: "[I]t gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor...a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt."

We can assist you in the following areas:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Skilled legal representation to give you a fresh financial start:
If you qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you can enjoy a fresh financial start and discharge most of your debt. You will generally be allowed to keep your assets provided they fall within the exemptions exempt property. Any proceeds received from the sale of your nonexempt property will be distributed to creditors. We can help determine if you are eligible for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: Creative legal counsel to reorganize business debt:
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is used to reorganize a financially distressed business. The debtor is obligated to perform various administrative functions, including filing certain reports. We routinely advise businesses on debt management.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Strategic legal advice to repay your debt:
If you receive a regular income, you may be eligible to file for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, to prevent foreclosure on your property and readjust your debt by repaying it over an extended period of time. You must receive credit counseling from an approved credit counseling agency prior to filing your petition. Chapter 13, as with Bankruptcy in general, is particularly complex and can be very confusing without experienced legal counsel. Our legal team can help maximize your chances of receiving court approval of your repayment plan.
