Is Bankruptcy Right For You?

I 7

Financial pressures affect just about everyone at some point in time. At Hanis Irvine Prothero, PPLC, we understand, and we are here to make a positive difference.

We will not pressure you into filing for bankruptcy unless that is the right course for you. Instead, our experienced attorneys will look at your unique situation, listen to your concerns and help you develop a plan of action to improve your financial future. We can also advise you about whether to file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.

Three Ways Filing Bankruptcy May Improve Your Life

The U.S. bankruptcy laws were established to help individuals, married couples and business owners receive a new start after a financial downfall. So how does this benefit you? Here are a few ways bankruptcy may resolve some of your concerns:

  • Saving your home — Filing bankruptcy will put a temporary halt to home foreclosure proceedings.
  • Stopping creditor harassment — As soon as you file, the court will order your creditors to stop contacting you.
  • Ending wage garnishment — Bankruptcy will also stop your hard-earned paychecks from being garnished.

We are here to answer all your bankruptcy-related questions. You can rely on us for the counsel you need.

Representing Creditors Throughout Washington

The bankruptcy process also gives creditors the opportunity to receive payment on some debts they may otherwise never be able to collect. On behalf of creditors, Hanis Irvine Prothero works with debtors to develop successful repayment plans. Our lawyers have even recovered some debts that were thought to be uncollectible.
