While our focus at the Oakley Law Group is on estate planning and closely related practice areas, we are frequently asked about legal issues involving bankruptcy. As an additional resource for our clients, we maintain a list of highly skilled practitioners – such as Bankruptcy scholars and a former Bankruptcy judge – who we feel confident will provide sound counsel and legal representation in bankruptcy law matters. Should you need a referral, please feel free to call our office and we will be happy to provide a few recommendations.
Even making the soundest financial decisions in our business and personal lives cannot always prevent a financial crisis. If you are struggling financially right now, you are not alone. A large and growing percentage of Americans are in debt. Nor are you alone if you are facing the prospect of bankruptcy. A competent bankruptcy attorney will be there for you to provide sound legal advice and a solid debt relief plan. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can:
- Put a stop to threatening phone calls from collection agencies
- Show you a variety of alternatives to bankruptcy
- Represent you in bankruptcy to stop foreclosures, eliminate or restructure debt, save your business, and give you time to litigate Truth in Lending violations or other disputes
- Negotiate with your mortgage holder to avoid foreclosure, establish an affordable mortgage payment, allow for a short sale, or keep you in your home
Whether your particular situation calls for a consumer bankruptcy filing to eliminate personal debts, or a sophisticated Chapter 11 reorganization plan for your business, an experienced bankruptcy attorney can protect your interests. And ultimately, help you sleep a little better at night.
