Bankruptcy is a very personal decision.

Don't blame yourself – it's not constructive. Neither should you be embarrassed or reluctant. That won't cure anything. Sometimes there's no other choice. And, that's when bankruptcy can be the bright light at the end of a dark tunnel – filled with benefits to normalize your life.

The economy has been the worst we've seen in decades.

It's exceeded only by the Great Depression of the 1930's. Unemployment has been at an all-time high. People need help. Though improving, today's economy does not heal everyone's financial wounds – both individuals and small business owners. You need a fresh start and that's where bankruptcy can be a lifesaver.

Bankruptcy can be the solution.

It can eliminate debt, stop foreclosure, provide protection from creditors, tax debt, support debt - even non- support Family Law issues including property division equalization payments and, perhaps, obligations to pay the other spouse's lawyer.

Is bankruptcy the right direction for you?

If so, you need an attorney to help steer you through the tricky waters, to help you make sense of a difficult situation and make sure you understand all your options - the different chapters of Bankruptcy and their pros and cons.
