Bankruptcy Law
We represent and counsel individual and small business debtors in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy, student loans and IRS tax disputes. We understand that the decision to file for bankruptcy is a difficult one, especially in these challenging economic times. Asking for help from an experienced bankruptcy attorney is a big first step in your journey to a fresh start and enjoying freedom from debt and bill collection calls.  Many different things can contribute to a feeling of financial overwhelm. Maybe you lost your job, were downsized or became employed part time. Perhaps your or a family member became ill,  reducing overall income and adding medical expenses. Or maybe you are juggling payments and borrowing more money to cover the payments on money that you borrowed over a year ago. Learn the seven signs that you are over your head.

Student Loan Law
Student loans can be overwhelming and confusing. The government has a website to help (studentaid.gov) but it isn’t user friendly. Your servicer is also unlikely to help because they often provide poor information while following a script that is simply designed to collect your money and doesn’t have you, the borrower’s best interests at heart.   There are ways to lower your government student loan payments and possibly get rid of your debt altogether under limited circumstances.

Tax Problems
It’s important to realize that if you have tax problems, you can get help to deal with the IRS. Your tax problems won’t go away by themselves. The IRS can be scary and is intimidating to deal with on your own. Hiring a lawyer to put between yourself and the often-aggressive tactics of the IRS can be a wise decision. The IRS is known to garnish your wages, put liens on your property and levy the money in your bank account to collect on your tax debt. They sometimes even use wrongful audit tactics.
