Cornwell Law Firm specializes in filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases for individuals and families.

A Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy can wipe out unsecured debt, such as credit cards and medical bills. Cornwell Law Firm can determine whether you qualify for Chapter 7 and, if so, whether you need a Chapter 13 to protect your assets.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a repayment plan that can help you protect your property from foreclosure or repossession, manage past-due tax bills and child support, and protect co-signers. While there are debt limits, most people with a regular source of income are eligible to file Chapter 13.

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