Arlington Bankruptcy Attorney
103 Combined Years of Legal Experience
Considering filing for bankruptcy can be stressful. Large corporations, small businesses, families and individuals alike have all faced hard financial times. Most people have good intentions of paying back their debts, but sometimes the money just isn’t available to give to creditors. There are various alternatives to declaring yourself bankrupt such as money management and refinancing, but if these options are not available or have not worked for you, bankruptcy may be your best option.
Going about your legal proceedings alone can be risky and put you and your property in dire situations. Hiring an attorney whom you trust is crucial. At The Law Offices of Cook & Casper, we have a combined 103 years’ experience serving individuals and businesses alike in navigating the sometimes complex waters of bankruptcy law. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is here to assist you in your finding a bankruptcy attorney, from gathering paperwork, to representing you in any cases filed from creditors. We are proud to serve our Spanish speaking community as well, with fluent Spanish speaking staff members to assist in bankruptcy proceedings.
Hiring an attorney will benefit you and your proceedings!
If you are facing declaring yourself bankrupt, the idea of spending any money on an attorney can seem outlandish. Do not be fooled into believing that you can do it on your own. Laws governing bankruptcy can be complex and confusing and the longer than you wait to speak with an attorney, the more drawn out your process may be. Attorneys can help you gather paperwork, file your petition for bankruptcy and offer you advice on which Chapter to file under. Hiring a paperwork apreparer may be great to get your paperwork started, but that is about as far as they can go. Preparers can offer no legal advice and will be gone once the paperwork is done. Our bankruptcy attorneys will be there with you the every step of the way. Why risk your health and well-being with more stress from collectors, legal systems and filing? Hiring an experienced attorney from Cook & Casper will start you on the right track to regaining your financial freedoms.
You’re Not Alone: Contact the Law Offices of Cook & Casper
Many people believe that filing for bankruptcy is the end all, be all. This is not true! Sometimes the best option for you is filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 to start fresh and debt-free. You are not alone in facing these challenging times. In 2009 approximately 1,412,838 individuals filed for bankruptcy in the United States. This is assuming that about one out of every 212 people have filed for bankruptcy. You may even know someone who has. Bankruptcy filings are public record, but the only ones that need to know about it are you, your attorney and the judge.
People declare themselves unable to pay back their debt for a number of reasons. Maybe there was a medical emergency and medical bills are too high to pay back. Maybe they are going through a divorce or separation? Perhaps the individual has accrued debt from past credit cards and their income is no longer allowing for enough disposable income to pay back their bills. Whatever the reason may be, you are not the first person to file and our firm has been available to help individuals in our community through the legal process of filing for years.
