How We Can Help

Debt problems go beyond endangering your bank account. When you face struggles paying your bills, this can cause significant personal stress. Debtors are often afraid to answer the phone and face debt collectors.  Personal relationships often suffer, and actions like wage garnishment can affect professional relationships with employers.  Foreclosure, repossession, court action, and judgments against you for unpaid debts can have a profound impact on all aspects of your financial life. 

Student loan debt, in particular, can be damaging, as special rules apply to this type of debt and collection efforts can be particularly aggressive. If you default on student loan debt, eligibility for deferment and forbearance can be lost. Your entire unpaid balance may become due immediately, and your debt will be assigned to a collection agency. Your tax refunds can be seized; your employer may be sent an order to garnish your wages; federal employees could find 15 percent of their pay taken from their checks; and credit could be destroyed.

Our goal is to help debtors find solutions to these and other problems. We leave no stone unturned when exploring debt relief options, optimizing solutions to your personal situation.  Whether your debt problems are resolved through bankruptcy, debt negotiation, refinance, or other in-court or out-of-court solutions, we can see your case through.

We work hard to provide you with representation that you can afford and to solve the real problems with money that impact your daily life. With a bankruptcy filing, we can put an immediate end to collection efforts, as an automatic stay goes into effect. This can provide you with the opportunity to renegotiate debts and resolve your financial issues without the threat of wage garnishment or impending court action.  If your problem is student loan debt, we can also help you to explore options for debt consolidation, deferment, forbearance, income-driven repayment, refinance, or discharge in bankruptcy if repaying the loan will cause undue hardship.

Our experience extends beyond just representing consumer debtors. We also understand the financial pressures businesses face. We help your business to explore a full range of debt relief solutions, from renegotiating contracts to filing for business bankruptcy.

For creditors, the problems we solve are focused on finding effective solutions to resolve issues that arise during bankruptcy proceedings. Because we represent debtors as well as creditors and trustees, we offer unique insight in the timely resolution of problems arising during bankruptcy proceedings and related legal matters.
