Protecting Your Rights And Interests
Bankruptcy is a highly personal issue that requires individualized attention. Our attorneys will guide you through each step of the process, from the initial filing to the discharge of your debt, to ensure that you understand your options and know what’s going on at every stage of your case.
As a consumer, you have certain rights afforded to you by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Our attorneys make sure those rights are protected at all times. When you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into effect, prohibiting creditors or collection agencies from contacting you. We ensure that creditor harassment ends when the bankruptcy process begins.
