In a Weak Economy, Many Seek Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Banish Heavy Debt and Aggressive Creditors

U.S. bankruptcy laws are in place to help people overcome unmanageable debt loads and get back on track. The Bankruptcy Code is essential to our economy, and it has been for hundreds of years. As experienced Boca Raton Chapter 7 attorneys, we will carefully assess your individual circumstances and focus on finding the right solution for you. If you qualify under the bankruptcy means test, benefits a Chapter 7 filing can provide include:

  • Elimination of most or all unsecured debts, including credit card balances of any amount
  • Near-immediate relief from creditor calls, threatening letters and other actions against you, such as crippling wage garnishment or court judgments allowing seizure of your property
  • The ability to keep and protect assets critical for your family and livelihood, such as your home, basic vehicles and likely all of your household goods

The Elkins & Freedman law firm was effective, responsive, and knowledgeable to me during my dire family law situation. Before hiring Mr. Elkins, my ex-girlfriend/mother of my child was not letting me see my child. After hiring Mr. Elkins, I got my child at least half the time. I was most impressed with Mr. Elkins ability and willingness to directly level with my ex-girlfriend/mother of my child, whom initially was uncooperative and not represented. I sincerely felt that Mr. Elkins was my advocate and he got the job done. I highly recommend Mr. Elkins and the Elkins & Freedman law firm to anyone who needs legal representation.
