​Get Skilled And Effective Legal Advice When Filing For Bankruptcy

Last updated on August 17, 2021

If you are struggling financially, paying an attorney to help you find a solution likely is not your first choice. We talk to many clients, however, who invested time and resources into do-it-yourself solutions that did not work.

Pursuing any debt relief solution can be complex, and the money invested in hiring a qualified attorney far outweighs the cost of seeking cheaper solutions that provide little or no benefit. Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., in Maplewood, New Jersey, has guided bankruptcy clients for more than 30 years. We are knowledgeable, understanding and ready to advocate for you.

What We Can Do For You

When you go into any legal proceeding, the parties on the other side have lawyers looking out for their interests. So should you. Our experienced attorneys understand your rights and know how to protect them. From preparing your case to defending against any disputes from your creditors, an attorney who is well-versed in debt relief and bankruptcy knows how to manage these proceedings in a way that gives you the best chance of obtaining a favorable outcome.

The other advantage an experienced attorney offers is knowledge.  We will help you understand your options. If you want to stop the repossession of your car, we can explore all available options and explain the advantages of pursuing one course of action over another.

We have your best interests in mind. We provide honest answers and sound solutions. Our only concern is for you to get the relief you need.
