If you are wrestling with unmanageable debt, dodging creditors or worried that you will not have your home or a car in a month, you need to know that life doesn't have to be so uncertain. At Steele Law Firm PLLC, in Fort Worth, attorney Lindsay D. Steele helps individuals throughout the Metroplex reset their financial lives through bankruptcy.
Many individuals struggle with the concept of filing bankruptcy because it has always seemed to be something that happened to someone else. We want to reassure you that there is no shame in bankruptcy. One serious health issue, a prolonged stretch of unemployment or some other family crisis is all it takes to suddenly leave someone staring at a mountain of debt he or she cannot handle. The U.S. bankruptcy laws are designed to provide a solution to this unfortunate situation, and Ms. Steele helps individuals navigate the complex bankruptcy process.
We represent individuals in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. In Chapter 7, individuals are able to discharge unsecured debt such as credit cards, medical bills and personal loans in order to begin the process of rebuilding their creditworthiness. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, individuals restructure their debt and create a plan to repay some or all of the debt over three to five years. The advantage of Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that many individuals are able to remain in a family home or keep other assets they may have to relinquish in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
There are important time limits on a number of matters that need to be resolved. Too often, individuals wait to contact us until it is too late and nothing can be done to stop a foreclosure or halt the repossession of a car. The important first step is contact Steele Law Firm PLLC to schedule a free consultation with our Texas bankruptcy attorney.
