A Problem-Solving Approach to Law
Get Your Life Back
Get Peace of Mind
You don't need to be confused or intimidated with legal jargon. You don't need a lecture on the law. You want effective solutions to the problems you face -- solutions that get your life back on track quickly.
As a Maryland bankruptcy lawyer and Virginia bankruptcy attorney, I help clients facing insurmountable debt understand their legal options so that a plan for overcoming financial debt can be developed and implemented.
If you are facing overwhelming debt, I offer a free, no-obligation consultation so that I can learn about your situation, and so that you can ask me any questions you might have concerning bankruptcy or otherwise. Once I learn about your situation, I can advise you of the options that are available for overcoming debt, including the option of bankruptcy. If bankruptcy is a consideration, I will explain the bankruptcy process, and will work with you to identify assets that may be exempt under the bankruptcy laws (these are referred to as “exempt assets” – they are assets that creditors cannot take).
With offices in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, our firm serves bankruptcy clients throughout suburban Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington DC. If you need a bankruptcy lawyer in Alexandria, Bethesda, Rockville, Silver Springs, or any of the surrounding towns and communities, please call us.
