We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Bankruptcy Lawyer in Kenosha WI:

Bankruptcy Law without the Stress

Bankruptcy is misunderstood and surrounded by myths that scare many away from using it as an option for debt relief. Our bankruptcy lawyers will bust those myths and guide you through the legal process of bankruptcy with compassion and understanding.

The Bankruptcy Process

Filing bankruptcy can be a fresh start for those drowning in debt. We offer:

  • Analysis of your financial situation to determine which type of bankruptcy is best for you.
  • Guidance through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing based on your situation.
  • Preparation and filing of all required documents.

How Bankruptcy Can Help You

Bankruptcy can help in many ways:

  • Stop Foreclosure and Repossession: Filing for bankruptcy will stop foreclosure on your home and repossession of other assets.
  • Debt Relief: Bankruptcy can discharge unmanageable debt and give you a clean slate. We will help determine what eligible debts you have.
  • Improve Your Credit Score: Contrary to what you may have heard, bankruptcy can improve the score on your credit report as you work towards financial stability.

Virtual and Easy Filing Options

We know facing financial hardship is stressful and difficult, so we offer virtual bankruptcy filing options to make the process as easy and convenient as possible. We want to bring relief and support to our clients without adding to the stress.

A Real-Life Story: Finding Hope After Bankruptcy

Meet “John”, a Kenosha resident who was drowning in debt from medical bills and credit card bills. Foreclosure was threatening and creditors were calling daily. John felt hopeless. After consulting with our Kenosha attorneys experienced in bankruptcy law, John filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Not only did he save his home and stop the creditor harassment, but within a few years, he was back on the road to rebuilding his credit. Today John is financially stable and has the peace of mind he never thought possible.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Law Firm 

Our team of lawyers and paralegals have extensive experience handling the nuances of your legal matter but also consider how other areas of law might affect your case. We often consider angles that aren’t obvious to an attorney with experience in only one practice area. 

A Law Firm that Handles Simple and Complex Cases 

Some legal issues are quick, requiring fast efficient services. You want those knocked out fast with the most efficient cost possible. But, for more involved cases, we take the time to get it right and work hard to get the outcome you want. 

A Team That Collaborates on Your Case 

We’ve had many legal clients complain that their last firm just didn’t have the resources or understanding to manage their case. Our attorneys regularly communicate across the firm, getting input from several legal professionals without the additional cost. 

Our Skills and Services 

Our skills and experience span decades and many different practice areas. We truly want to provide a comprehensive legal solution for our community. When you’ve got a legal question, we want to be the first law firm you think of because you know you can trust us to have the answers or tell you the next best solution. 

Open Communication 

No one wants to be sitting in the dark, unsure of what’s going on with their case. Part of our core practice model is to regularly update our clients on the status of their cases. 

Contact our law office today for a consultation and to get in touch with a bankruptcy attorney in the Kenosha area who is prepared to answer questions. Debt relief may be right around the corner.

When to File a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy vs. a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy completely wipes out all the debtor’s dischargeable debts while a Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides for the payment of some or all the debtor’s debts over the course of 3 to 5 years. If, based on the debtor’s income, the debtor will not be able to pay off the full amount of the debts during the allotted time period in a Chapter 13 payment plan, the plan may provide for payment of a portion of the debts, with the remainder of the debt being discharged at the conclusion of the payment plan.
