Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 is a personal or consumer bankruptcy. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection may allow you to eliminate most forms of unsecured debt, such as credit cards, medical bills, and personal loans. Chapter 7 is sometimes called a fresh start, as you are able to regain control of your financial situation. We can assess your case, complete a means test and determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt repayment plan through which an individual may consolidate his or her debts over a three- to five-year period. By allowing some unsecured debt to be discharged and other loans, such as a car or mortgage, to be repaid over the life of the plan, debtors are able to stay in a home.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings are to protect a business from creditors who could otherwise strip it of all its assets and drive it out of business. Also sometimes referred to as business bankruptcy, Chapter 11 allows a debtor to propose a reorganization plan to keep the business alive and pay creditors over time.

We can also represent clients in a wide range of other bankruptcy issues, including:
