OFFICE, VIDEO, AND PHONE CONSULT AVAILABLE: I spend two to four hours with you personally listening, planning, and preparing your best options. Video and phone consultations are possible. I have filed thousands of Chapter 7 and 13 cases, and now prepare only 3-5 cases per week. Other offices hand you over to a secretary, paralegal, junior attorney, or their children. I personally prepare your case. Compare our Avvo and Google ratings and results to the others.

EXCLUSIVE PRACTICE. Our practice is exclusively in foreclosure and bankruptcy cases. I don’t just keep abreast of foreclosure and bankruptcy law. We teach it in NBI seminars and boot camps to other attorneys.

CUSTOMER SERVICE. Toni is your legal consultant. She will guide you through the process when it comes to answering administrative questions.
I am personally available to clients for legal advice, even after the case is over. You are not under any obligation in our first session.

PAYMENT PLAN: We offer no money down options if you need to file bankruptcy immediately to stop a garnishment and don’t have cash.

Remote preparation: We have a secure “Client Portal” where you can complete your intake and upload documents from the comfort of home, saving time in the office.

Chapter 7 often runs $1200 to 1400. We work to ensure if you need a Chapter 7, you qualify for it. Chapter 13 cases pay attorneys 3500 or more. That is why, in some offices, Chapter 13 cases can be over 90% of their cases.

In 2020, I filed the first small business reorganization act bankruptcy in Kentucky, and I represent small businesses. I have been an assistant county attorney in Bullitt County and an assistant attorney general assigned to the tax department. My US Tax Court license is #51, and I was one of the first 50 attorney generals invited to the US Tax Court. We have presented seminars and co-authored a book on how to bankrupt student loans.

Legal Answers
39 Questions Answered
Q. My Mom received a Lis Pendens notice on her home. It is from a bank she has never had any affiliation with.
A: See an attorney immediately. After the home is sold at an auction you cannot get it back. It may be there is a loan out there he signed for. It may be identity theft. But you really need an appointment immediately. At the start of a case there are defenses you lose if you don't assert them and you ignore the court or litigation. You can lost other defenses by not asserting them at the start.

Even if you owe this debt it is easier and cheaper to handle these things at the early.
Q. If you file bankruptcy on a business will it affect you personally?
A: It should only affect you personally if you also guaranteed the debt. Most businesses are a separate entity just like a separate person. You are only liable for a debt to a creditor if you agreed to be liable for it. You can co-sign with your company or a person and be held liable.
Q. My brother sold his restaurant owes me half of the money hes claiming to want to file bankruptcy to avoid paying me ?
A: Your brother seems to qualify for filing bankruptcy. He makes very little income. There may be a problem for him in that if he sold the restaurant, there should be maybe money left over or money to be accounted for. There is also a requirement to keep records. He could make a gross income of about 50,000 a year and qualify, so his income is far below that. You don't explain whether you owned part of the restaurant or whether you simply loaned him the money. But either way, it looks like he can probably file bankruptcy to avoid paying you. However, some people will threaten to file bankruptcy but won't do it.
