Filing for bankruptcy is one of the ways in which an individual can be given a fresh financial start so as to move on with his or her life unencumbered by an overwhelming amount of debt.

Making the decision to file for bankruptcy is not something that an individual should do without careful consideration. Our attorneys will be able to advise you of the various pros and cons of filing for bankruptcy and we will be able to help you make the final determination as to whether bankruptcy is right for you. To begin the bankruptcy process we will conduct a thorough review of your financial situation and perform a means test to see whether you are eligible to file for Chapter 7 or if Chapter 13 would better suit your needs. We will then work with you closely to gather all of the necessary documentation so that we can compile and submit a bankruptcy petition on your behalf.
From that point forward we will be by your side through creditor meetings, meetings with the bankruptcy trustee and at all hearings to see that your rights are well represented until the point at which your debts have been discharged. If you want to get started on the bankruptcy process, do not hesitate to call our law offices and schedule to meet with a Detroit bankruptcy attorney at your earliest convenience. The sooner you call us, the faster you will be able to attain the debt relief you seek.
