Don't Let Credit Card Debt Take Over!

Many of our clients have been responsible with their finances all of their lives, but they had an unexpected negative event occur in their life that devastated them financially. The most common examples of negative events that lead to a bankruptcy filing are loss of a job, divorce and a serious illness or injury resulting in costly medical bills. In most cases, people who cannot make ends meet begin to rely on their credit cards to pay for their basic necessities.

Can I Keep My Car in Bankruptcy?

Many people who meet with us want to know if they can keep their car if they file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is very important because the car is needed for many people to get to work or to school As with most things, the answer is "it depends." However, most people filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy can keep a modest car.

Bankruptcy Basics

On November 17, 2014 our very own Bruce Levitt will be the moderator and a speaker at a seminar sponsored by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) called "Bankruptcy Basics 2014." This program is designed for lawyers who do not handle bankruptcy cases, including those at large firms, government agencies or attorneys considering venturing into a new area of practice. The speakers will explain key provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, including a discussion of the differences between Chapter 7, 11 and 13 cases.

Our bankruptcy attorneys will help you escape debt and
face the future with optimism.
