BANKRUPTCY CHAPTER 7
Chapter 7 of Title 11 of the United States Code governs the process of liquidation under the bankruptcy laws of the United States, in contrast to Chapters 11 and 13, which govern the process of reorganization of a debtor. Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy in the United States.
BANKRUPTCY CHAPTER 13
Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code provides an individual the opportunity to propose a plan of reorganization to reorganize their financial affairs while under the bankruptcy court’s protection. The purpose of chapter 13 is to enable an individual with a regular source of income to propose a plan for their various classes of creditors.
One of the things that set my practice apart from others is that you will get “hands-on” assistance from me. Many lawyers simply dish their clients off to their staff or other associates. I make myself very accessible to my clients – I make it a point to try to return every phone call, every day. Not many lawyers can say that. You will notice this from the first time you try to call me on the phone. Moreover, unlike the big law firms where you never know whether the attorney you first meet with will be the same attorney who signs your bankruptcy petition, or will be the same attorney who shows up at court with you.
I am a sole practitioner, so you will always be working with me. Additionally, I grant an initial free phone consultation with anyone.
On the other hand, unlike many of the new startup attorneys who call themselves bankruptcy specialists, I have an actual brick and mortar presence at my main office in Anoka, in addition to numerous meeting places around the Twin Cities for your convenience. We are fully staffed so you will almost always get a live person to answer your calls and your questions, as opposed to the smaller operations who have nothing but a cell phone where you get voicemail most of the time.
