Overwhelming debt can happen to anyone. Medical bills, credit card debt and loans can snowball, especially if an unexpected financial crisis arises.

At Dezenberg & Smith, Attorneys At Law we know that bad things happen to good people. Debt does not make you a bad person. It just means you are in a bad situation. Our Bankruptcy Lawyers have more than 33 years of experience helping people like you out of bad financial situations with our “$40 to File Bankruptcy” Chapter 13 and “$5 to Open a File” Chapter 7.

Personalized Debt Relief Strategies

We will review your circumstances to determine if bankruptcy is in your best interest. We will listen to you, provide clear answers to your questions and offer our honest opinion about your situation. While bankruptcy can benefit many people, there may be other options as well. If bankruptcy is not your best option, we will suggest alternatives to bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is in your best interest, we will guide you through the process from start to finish, providing the information you need at every step along the way. We will carefully determine the type of bankruptcy that makes the most sense, either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, and we will follow through until you have reached solid financial ground.

If you need a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, we can file your case for $40 under our “$40 to File” program available to all first-time filers and persons who have filed Bankruptcy before as long as their filing fees were paid in their previous case.

If you need a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, we will tell you up front the total cost of your bankruptcy and can open a file for $5 under our “$5 to Open a File” program. (The Bankruptcy Court requires all attorney fees and costs to be paid PRIOR to filing a Chapter 7 with the Court and receiving a Case Number.)

As we work to complete your bankruptcy, we will look at the circumstances that brought you to this point, helping you understand what, if anything, can be changed in the future to avoid further financial turmoil. We strive to provide permanent solutions to debt problems.
