BANKRUPTCY

Consumer Bankruptcy Filings, Creditor Bankruptcy Defense, Adverse Proceedings

Bankruptcy is there to provide consumers with a second chance.  It is not avoiding your responsibilities, and it's not "gaming the system".  It is a useful, and sometimes necessary tool for people who just can't get out from under their bills. 

 

GB&V's attorneys will guide you through the differences between Chapter 7 and 13.  They will prepare all the paperwork for filing, assist you at the Section 341 Meeting of Creditors, and act as a liason between yourself and the Bankruptcy Trustee
