Why Hire a Bankruptcy Attorney?

Why Hire a Bankruptcy Attorney?

Understanding the Benefits

There is no legal restriction against representing yourself when you file for bankruptcy, but experts including the United States Courts recommend that you retain legal counsel to increase your chances of success. If you choose to represent yourself, you will be expected to have complete knowledge and understanding of the legal process as well as any laws pertaining to your situation.

Court proceedings are complicated and confusing to have to endure on your own. You do not want to have to filter through paperwork and other complex issues on your own, especially if you are already facing the stress of living in debt. Allow our team to work with you and provide you our legal assistance that is both efficient and cost-effective.

Protection from Creditors

We can take immediate collections defense actions to protect you against wage garnishment and repossessions. This can provide relief for you from the stress and worry of creditor harassment. We even allow and recommend that you send any further calls from your creditors directly to our office. We will advise you of your options, to determine whether bankruptcy is the most suitable course of action or if you should pursue an alternative such as debt consolidation or a short sale.

Clear Guidance Throughout the Entire Process

One of the most significant advantages of hiring an attorney is that you will not have to wonder whether you are correctly managing the situation. We will take care of the paperwork, help you gather the necessary documents, and represent you in court as well. Our legal team is more than willing to speak on your behalf with the bankruptcy trustee who oversees your case and be with you during the meeting of creditors.

Throughout the bankruptcy process, we will look out for your best interests and strive to help you eliminate the maximum amount of debt possible. Our firm provides a welcoming and informal atmosphere where you can come for help in resolving your financial difficulties. Living in debt is stressful enough. Our goal is to make your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy as easy as possible. We will walk you through each step and explain what is happening during the entire process so that you are not confused. Financial endeavors can be scary and our last desire that you would feel any level of uncertainty.

Over Four Decades of Legal Experience

Hiring a knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer to represent you can make the difference between success and failure in your attempt to get out of debt. Declaring bankruptcy is a difficult process, and without someone to guide you along the way you could easily make mistakes that would result in your case being dismissed or keep you from receiving the full protection of the laws. At the Law Offices of Marshall D. Schultz, we have filed over 10,000 individual bankruptcy cases, and have more than 45 years of combined experience. We know bankruptcy law and take pride in helping people resolve their problems with debt.

Do not live another day under the oppression of debt.
