Bankruptcy might seem frightening to many, but to those in financial distress, it can give you a new start in life, furnish you with relief from harassment and threats by creditors, get rid of debts altogether, or work out a structured payment plan whereby you can pay off a portion of the debt over time, with reduced payments, a hold on the running of interest, and a stop to pending or threatened lawsuits, repossessions, foreclosures, wage garnishments, or bank account seizures. For many, it is actually the only real viable option. It may well be your very best option if you have troubling debt to begin again with a new start. Declaring yourself bankrupt is a realistic and effective way to protect yourself, your family, your business, or other property, such as a home.

We at Thomas W. Lynch are experienced bankruptcy attorneys ready, willing, and able to use our powerful storehouse of expertise and experienced to help out with troubling personal or business debt problems. We can handle all the forms of bankruptcy, encompassing individual bankruptcies (Chapter 7 & Chapter 13) and business bankruptcies (Chapter 7 & 11).

Individual Bankruptcy (Chapter 7)

The appealing aspect for most people who qualify for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 is the realistic prospect that you can often keep much of your property, including your home, your car, household furnishings, and other personal possessions. All this while obtaining relief from crippling debt and huge unaffordable monthly payments, with the discharge of many forms of unsecured debts, such as hospital bills, credit card bills, wage garnishments, court judgments, and select taxes.

Individual Bankruptcy (Chapter 13)

The majority of Chapter 13 bankruptcies filed by individual people normally end up with the person or family retaining their home and belongings. Chapter 13 often is the best answer for families who are behind on their monthly mortgage payments, home equity loans, or other major financial obligations. It involves setting up a payment plan to pay off a portion of your debts for a time period that can be up to five years, often with a reduced monthly payment and a hold on the running of interest.

Business Bankruptcy (Chapter 7)

Sometimes Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the last remaining viable way out for business owners confronted with the unfortunate fact that they must close their business due to inadequate profits in order to service its outstanding debts. A business Chapter 7 permits a business owner to get on with their personal plans and puts an immediate halt to all forms of harassment by creditors and collection agencies, decreasing the likelihood of ongoing litigation, and routinely winds up with a business proprietor being able to explore other avenues of business and careers without any liabilities from their former business hanging over them.

Business Bankruptcy (Chapter 11)

Utilizing Chapter 11 bankruptcy regulations might be a beneficial path for business-entrepreneurs to consider if they want to try to remain open and in business.  A court supervised reorganization can help the business get out of unprofitable contracts and obligations, and immediate relief from crippling debt. It enables a business to make a new start in a streamlined fashion, focusing in areas where it has the possibility of being a success.

We have helped provide debt relief to over 3,000 clients.
