About Us

Our Bankruptcy Attorneys are here to help.   Bankruptcy can stop garnishments, repossessions, foreclosures, creditor law suits and collection calls  – but it has to be done right.  The Bankruptcy process is complex and having an experienced attorney and staff can make a big difference in your case.  Choosing the right bankruptcy attorneys is an important decision.

Our bankruptcy attorneys have dedicated their practice to consumer bankruptcy.  They will explain your options and help you plan your bankruptcy case so that you can minimize your losses and get back in control of your financial future.  Our goal is for you to understand what will happen in your particular case.

We have responsive, caring staff who can help you navigate the process and make sure your case is successful.  Our two paralegals have over 10 years of experience each in bankruptcy practice.  We also have a legal assistant and an accounts manager to ensure we provide excellent customer service.   A lot of our business comes from referrals and we will work hard to provide you with competent, responsive legal representation.
