Bankruptcy is a method of legally reorganizing, settling, or discharging any outstanding debts you can no longer afford to pay. Depending on which method you select, you can either liquidate a large portion of your property to settle debts or arrange a way to pay off the debts in affordable increments over a 3-5-year period. At the end of this process, you are left with a brand new start and the ability to build a future you may have never thought possible.

Bankruptcy in its various forms allows you to:

  • Eliminate some or all of your debt
  • Obtain relief from creditor harassment with an "automatic stay"
  • Keep your home and/or car
  • Keep your most valued possessions
  • Start repairing your credit


Individuals typically choose between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you have no assets, or you are willing to liquidate your assets to cover your debt, Chapter 7 may be the best option for your situation. Chapter 13, on the other hand, is best for those who want to keep their assets and can reasonably repay most of their debt in a 3-5-year plan.

If you are a business owner, we can help you find a business-oriented bankruptcy solution. Whether you want to close and liquidate your company assets or restructure debt to continue operating as long as possible, we can help you develop a strategic plan.

Bankruptcy can't fix all of your financial problems, but it is a remarkable tool in the hands of someone who knows how to use it.
