Bowie, Maryland, began in the 1870s as a small railroad stop in the country. It has grown into the largest town in Prince George’s County, and is the fifth most populous town in Maryland. Once a rail line from Baltimore to the southern Maryland area was completed in 1872, the surrounding area, then known as Huntington City, began to grow. The town was renamed Bowie after Oden Bowie, president of the railroad company at the time and son of Colonel William Duckett Bowie, who began the process of building the railroad there. Now a suburb of Washington, DC, Bowie maintains the feel of a historic railroad town. Nearly 20 percent of the city’s sixteen square-mile area is devoted to parks and green spaces, and it prides itself on being an excellent community for families.
Even so, given the state of the present economy, Bowie residents and business must also sometimes contend with financial difficulties. There are a number of ways to address financial problems, but bankruptcy can be one of the more effective solutions to help resolve your financial troubles. A knowledgeable Bowie bankruptcy attorney can educate you about the overall process of bankruptcy and advise you of your options. The question of what will become of one’s assets is a major concern for people and organizations considering bankruptcy. Anyone considering bankruptcy should first understand what property is exempt by law from seizure or sale in a bankruptcy.
Congress sets most of the bankruptcy laws, but it leaves rules relating to exemptions to the states if they choose to make their own. Maryland has its own laws relating to the question of what property is exempt. Your attorney must be thoroughly familiar with bankruptcy in Maryland. An experienced Bowie bankruptcy lawyer can help you to preserve as many of your assets as possible.
