Recognized Trial Attorneys: Unlike most law firms, we actually have courtroom experience. We have represented our clients before the state & federal courts and our team has 22+ years of combined experience.

Filing for bankruptcy protection has helped millions of Americans and consumers throughout Illinois find long-term relief from debt. Although there are countless positives to filing for bankruptcy, taking this type of legal action is not recommended for every single situation. As experienced legal professionals, we can assess your situation, identify any obstacles or roadblocks, establish the strengths in your case, and determine if filing for bankruptcy is the right debt relief solution for you.
We can assist with the following forms of bankruptcy:
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also referred to as liquidation. In the simplest of terms, Chapter 7 allows you to liquidate your assets and use the proceeds to pay back any debts owed to collectors and creditors. Chapter 7 can only discharge certain types of debt, such as credit card debt or other forms of secured debt.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is typically reserved for individuals who have some sort of dependable source of income. Chapter 13 requires you to create a debt repayment that allows you to repay your debts over the course of 3 to 5 years. This type of bankruptcy protection can discharge certain types of debts, including certain forms of secured debt (such as stripped or crammed down liens).
Have you fallen behind on bills or mortgage payments? Are you looking to repay your debts? Do you want to put a stop to creditor abuse once and for all? No matter what your specific case involves, we can stand at your side and help you make informed decisions that allow you to get back on your feet and enjoy living again.
