Bankruptcy and Credit Program

Our bankruptcy and credit program will help you face financial problems and understand how to resolve them.  Our program can offer low to moderate income individuals the opportunity to repair their damaged credit and provide assistance for those struggling with unmanageable debt.  We offer one on one consulations with an attorney to discuss your financial situation. During this consult the attorney will determine if you are eligible for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.  We provide representation to those who are income qualified.


What does Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Mean?


  • Total or liquidation bankruptcy
  • Debtors non-exempt assets are sold by the Chapter 7 Trustee and the proceeds distributed to creditors

What does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Mean?


  • Debtor proposes a repayment plan
  • Creditors are prevented from collection activity and the debtor can keep non-exempt property
  • When the plan payments have been completed in 3 to 5 years the debtor is discharged
