Accomplished Brooklyn firm handles a wide range of debt relief concerns

Our firm handles a full range of bankruptcy cases and other debt relief matters, such as:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy — By filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can discharge your debts quickly and move forward without being harassed by creditors.
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy — The best way for businesses to overcome financial challenges is to keep the doors open and the customers coming in. Filing for Chapter 11 gives companies a chance to restructure existing debt obligations while continuing to bring in revenue.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy — People with income over the median income to qualify for a Chapter 7 case, sometimes need assistance repaying debts, especially after an unexpected event such as a medical crisis or temporary financial setback. Through Chapter 13, you can establish a repayment plan that satisfies your obligations on fair terms over several years.
  • Loan modification — Falling behind on a mortgage could put your home at risk. Often, financial institutions are willing to negotiate a mutually beneficial loan modification.
  • Wage garnishment — If you’ve been hit with a wage garnishment from a creditor, there might be ways to undo it so you can keep what you’ve earned, discharge the debt, or repay it on better terms.

To ensure every client struggling with debt receives the attention they deserve, we are an appointment-only law firm with flexible hours that fit your schedule and needs.  In order to serve our clients best we are currently offering in person consultations, or virtual meetings.
