Initial Bankruptcy Consultation With Attorney Chris Benson. Please watch our video:

Behind on house payments? We can file a Plan to save your house and get 36 months at 0% interest for you to catch up.

Wages getting garnished? We can stop it by filing a Plan that will save you hundreds of dollars every month and take care of all your debt: Not just the creditor who is garnishing you.

Creditor Harassment? Phone calls? Demand Letters? Collection Notices? We can stop it.

Behind on Rent? We can stop the eviction and get you up to 6 months to catch up on past due rent.

Here is a recent case we handled to stop a wage garnishment before the next paycheck was issued:

Common Bankruptcy Myth: “Filing Bankruptcy is a last resort.” That myth is simply not true.  For a lot of people, filing bankruptcy is an excellent choice: Even if you are not behind on any creditor payments at this time.

Whatever your situation, we will figure out a solution together. Filing bankruptcy is not the “last resort.”

For a lot of people it should be the first choice and the sooner you file, the sooner you start saving money.  Money that you need to survive.

The Truth is that Bankruptcy gives you a legal Plan to solve all of your financial issues:  not just one creditor but all of your creditors at the same time.  If you’ve stalled and are making little or no progress paying down your debts and climbing out debt,  then filing bankruptcy is usually a great choice.  And an experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you through the process, and help you take your life back.

  • Bankruptcy provides a lot of different protections, depending on your goal. With a Chapter 13, you can stop foreclosures and propose a plan to pay the missed payments over 36 to 60 months at 0% interest — OR IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SAVE YOUR HOUSE, bankruptcy can provide you with protection to walk away and discharge your financial liability regarding the house. Give us a call to find out your options! (253) 815-6940. More bankruptcy information below.
  • The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 launched a new era: With limited exceptions, people who plan to file for bankruptcy must first get credit counseling from a government-approved organization before they file. After you file your bankruptcy case, you must also complete a debt education course to have debts discharged.
