I pride myself on getting your case rolling quickly. I know that when you have truly made the decision to file for bankruptcy the last thing you need is a lawyer dragging their feet getting to your case. It happens. I also pride myself on offending affordable services. I used to be the cheapest bankruptcy attorney around. I learned that if the price is too cheap I ended up working for minimum wage. I did a good job. Although my goals were to help as many people as I could I found I was taking to many short cuts. I raised my price a little and am able to get much better service and have happier clients. The point is, beware of hiring the really cheap lawyer. I really do treat my clients like they are my friends. I am a one person law firm and I give your case personal attention. You will not show up to court and not know who your lawyer is. The big firms hire lots of associates and have a high turn over. Because I do not have a bunch of associates to pay I keep my costs to a minimum and pass that savings on to you.
I am committed to being the best and to helping as many people as I can. Bankruptcy is a scary situation and you need someone wants to help you through it. You need someone that can handle problems if they arise. Someone that is user friendly. Someone that has been in the trenches. Someone that can fight your creditors. Someone that will get you out of the stress and pain you are feeling. That's what I do. Call me. Let me help you.
I hope this page can help answer all your questions as I put up a lot of content specifically about chapter 7 bankruptcy in Michigan. I also have a lot about Chapter 13 cases as well.
The second that you file a bankruptcy you are under Bankruptcy protection. That means the day you file the phone calls stop. That means garnishment stops. That means law suits stop. That means foreclosure stops. And if they do not stop calling you can can sanction them for violation of Federal law.
The quick explanation is a chapter 13 is a reorganization bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 is a liquidation bankruptcy. Sometimes people do not qualify for a chapter 7 but can still get bankruptcy protection from a chapter 13.
