Bankruptcy

In the face of serious financial problems, it may be hard to know where to go for help. For 35 years we have provided effective and compassionate legal services for individuals and small businesses.

We are dedicated to helping you control your financial problems.  We can work with you to stop creditor harassment, lawsuits and the loss of property.  If necessary, we will help you achieve a FRESH START through bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code and other debtor protection laws.

We have practiced before the Bankruptcy Court in Maine since 1981 and have gained extensive experience from helping individuals and small businesses. Our law firm has helped people to save their homes from foreclosure, protect a vehicle from repossession, end harassing phone calls from creditors, and defend against aggressive debt collectors.

Bankruptcy is a legal recourse for those who are unable to repay large amounts of debt. A consultation can  help you decide if bankruptcy is the right choice for you, and which type of bankruptcy best suits your situation.

Bankruptcy offers the debtor a financial “fresh start.”  To help achieve this goal, we use our considerable experience and skill, as well as our affiliation with the American Bankruptcy Institute and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, to access the most up-to-date and sophisticated national resources available.  We believe in treating our clients with respect and compassion while aggressively representing their interests in the bankruptcy system.

Overview

In your first consultation we discuss your specific issues and outline your possible options. To help make your first appointment as productive as possible, you should bring in as many of the items that you can from the following list. Keep in mind that all items on the list may not apply to you.

There are different types of bankruptcy that may be appropriate for you or your business. If bankruptcy is the right option for you we will guide you through every step, from your initial consultation to the day your debt is discharged.

The Fresh Start

Bankruptcy is designed to give you a fresh start. Upon discharge of the debt, you are free and clear of the debt. You have the opportunity to begin your life again, free from the stress and discouragement of overwhelming debt.
