Many folks may be out of work and in a financial bind given the stay-home orders dealing with the Covid-19 virus.

Bankruptcy is one possible solution for some folks to wipe out debt and a gain a fresh start.

I handle such Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases as opposed to Chapter 13 bankruptcies which involve a repayment plan stretched out over years.

There is no charge for the initial phase of consultation to see if Chapter 7 is a good fit for you.  My typical attorney fee ranges from $1,500 to approximately $3,000 depending on the complexity of the case, number of creditors, whether the client needs extensive help filling out the necessary forms, etc.  In addition, the Court currently charges an initial filing fee of $335 for a new Chapter 7 case.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy generally stops creditors from collecting money from you (such as by garnishing your paycheck or taking the money in your bank account), as soon as the case is filed.  Cases generally take about 120 days from start to finish.

Please call if think we can help you!
