WHY I PRACTICE BANKRUPTCY LAW
They need to decide whether to make payments on their houses, car loans, or utility bills, and pay off the minimum required on their credit cards, personal loans, or payday loans, even though most of those minimum payments just go towards the interest.
Bankruptcy helps these people stay afloat and prevents those creditors from sending collection notices, making harassing calls, and, finally, filing lawsuits to garnish a debtor’s wages.
Bankruptcy gives people the immediate relief from making those hard financial choices and being in this financial limbo forever. It gives people a second chance if they end up in debt due to a family emergency, unexpected medical expense or loss of a job.
No one can predict all pieces of financial bad luck, nor prevent every possible risk. I am proud to help people get a second chance after a piece of financial misfortune.
