Message – Mission Statement
Over the years I have seen an increase in people hesitating on filing bankruptcy. The reason consistently stated was “it will ruin my life”, the fear was that the person would never be able to get credit or it would affect them in getting a job. This simply is not true.
If you choose, I will personally sit with you and after carefully reviewing your situation structure a course of action that will place you in a better position than you were before. This could include a complete asset protection plan or a bankruptcy plan that may eliminate or reduce your debt.
As such, you will have my undivided attention to listen to your concerns and advise you on what options are available to you given your particular situation. I will always be compassionate to the needs of the client. Together we will determine the best course of action for you to take. The bankruptcy laws were written for a purpose. It allows a legal option to help one emerge out of debt and put you in a position to move forward and to become productive once again.
