Providing Solutions to Overwhelming Debt:
When mounting debt becomes unmanageable, it's time to consider relief through bankruptcy. Bankruptcy attorney Mark J. Rose fights for your right to make a fresh start free from oppressive debt and irritating creditors.
Negotiators of Debt Relief Options:
Bankruptcy is not your only option when facing large debts. If it is in your best interests to avoid bankruptcy, we can often convince creditors to lower your debts and accept fair and reasonable monthly payments.
Skilled Debt Analysis Professionals:
We apply intensive research and detailed analyses before advising you to file for bankruptcy. After reviewing your income, debts and other expenses, we counsel you on the true and total impact bankruptcy will have on your family, business, home and future credit. If bankruptcy is the right choice for you, we will fully explain the process and the outcomes. Our assertive approach to bankruptcy leaves no doubts.
Reprieve through Automatic Stay:
You should not have to endure creditors' aggressive collection tactics. The Law Offices of Mark J. Rose can put an end to the harassing phone calls and irksome letters meant to pressure you into paying debts you cannot afford. Creditors must immediately stop collections efforts - including those distressing letters and phone calls - as soon as you or your business files for bankruptcy. We take charge of your creditors and give you back your peace of mind.
Your Bankruptcy Options:
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:
If you and your spouse own few assets and earn relatively low wages, Chapter 7 bankruptcy grants you relief from debts through the liquidation of your assets. We can negotiate asset exemptions to limit the disruption to your life.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy:
If you own a corporation, partnership or sole proprietorship, Chapter 11 bankruptcy permits your business to continue operating while you pay creditors under a court-ordered payment plan. We help you keep the business you struggled so hard to build.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:
Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop lenders from taking your home through foreclosure. Chapter 13 allows you to keep your hard-earned assets and pay debts over time in smaller amounts. Although Mr. Rose does not handle Chapter 13 cases, he can refer you to a reliable attorney who handles this option.
