The constant stress and worry about paying bills, garnishments, and collections can be overwhelming. We have a passion for helping people get their lives back — that’s why bankruptcy is ALL WE DO. Coming in to talk about bankruptcy may be painful, but it will be far less painful than doing nothing about your debt situation, or trying to work it out without knowing your legal rights.

One of the best financial decisions you’ll ever make is to call us today for free consultation with an actual attorney. Our in-depth and informative consultation will leave you feeling confident in your next steps, understanding that you are taking the smartest, most strategic path to help you recover and put your financial problems in the past. In our 20+ years of experience, we have filed over 3,500 bankruptcy cases and helped erase millions in debt. Now let us help you through this process in a respectful and dignified manner.

Bankruptcy Myths


Bankruptcy will harm my credit score!

Bankruptcy itself does not actually hurt your credit score. In most cases, bankruptcy will very likely help you raise your credit score.

I’ll lose my house and car!

Typically, you won’t lose any assets unless you want to. State exemption laws protect people’s assets.

A debt settlement program is a better option for me!

The reality is that debt settlement programs are almost always much worse for your credit than a bankruptcy.

I can’t afford an attorney!

30% of people who file bankruptcy without an attorney fail to receive a discharge of their debt.

I can’t live my life while in bankruptcy!

This is simply not true. You can absolutely buy and sell assets, build your credit, and enjoy your life during a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy is for bums!

The general view by the public is that people who file bankruptcy have been out racking up debt without ever intending to pay it back. This presumption could not be further from the truth.

I can only file bankruptcy once!

There’s always a chance you may find yourself in a financial rut more than once in your lifetime. Luckily, you can file for bankruptcy more than once, should you need to.

I make too much money to file bankruptcy!

The reality is that it’s not possible to make “too much money” to file for bankruptcy.
