Kankakee Personal Bankruptcy Lawyer

Are you overwhelmed with debt? Have you been threatened with foreclosure? Has your business failed? Do you want the creditor harassment to stop? I can help you file bankruptcy, overcome your debt and move forward with your life.

Experienced Bankruptcy Representation

I bring more than two decades of experience and a unique perspective to bankruptcy. Not only have I helped individuals and businesses file bankruptcy in Kankakee and the surrounding parts of Illinois, I have also represented creditors committees and bankruptcy trustees. I have represented both sides in bankruptcy cases, and I have litigated on both sides. This gives me a unique understanding of the inner workings of the bankruptcy process.

My background facilitates easy navigation of the bankruptcy process. It also means that I am prepared for any challenges that may arise. If a creditor pushes back or the threat of bankruptcy litigation rears its head, I am fully prepared to handle it.

Which Type Of Bankruptcy Is Right For You?

You do not want a lawyer who simply pushes you into one type of bankruptcy. You want to make certain that your case is carefully assessed. I will review your situation and your debt load. Do you need to overcome credit card debt, medical debt, tax debt? Are you behind on your house payments and car payments? I want to make certain that the most appropriate type of bankruptcy is filed. The options are:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: This is the most common form of bankruptcy. It leads to the discharge of most, if not all, debt. You may have to give up some property.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: This form of bankruptcy involves the creation of a debt repayment plan. You will be allowed to pay back some or all of your debt over the course of three to five years. You will be able to keep your property.
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy: This is designed primarily for businesses.
