Bankruptcy Attorney Contact Form

In most bankruptcy cases — whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy — a court order called the automatic stay puts an immediate stop to creditor harassment.

The automatic stay is designed to prohibit any further collection actions, including most lawsuits, telephone calls, and even letters, as long as the bankruptcy case is pending.

You may have more control over your financial future than your creditors want you to believe.

If you've grown tired of the late-night collection calls from angry creditors and tossing and turning all night after getting off the phone, take action now!
