Debt Relief Solutions

If you are dealing with insurmountable debt, foreclosure threats, or another scary financial situation, do not hesitate to speak to our firm. We are experienced debt relief lawyers who understand the Florida and federal bankruptcy laws that could potentially impact your situation. We are here to help you regain the financial stability and independence you need! Some of the areas we can help you with include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Chapter 7
    Chapter 7 bankruptcies are for people who do not have the financial capacity to repay their loans. This form of federal debt relief allows Americans who are struggling beneath truly unpayable debt to restart the clock by discharging most if not all of what is owed. If you are dealing with overwhelming debt and are unsure of what to do, don't lose hope! Call our firm to talk about whether or not you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
  • Chapter 13
    If you wish to repay your loans in a manageable time frame while holding on to your property and other assets, filing for reorganization, also known as Chapter 13, bankruptcy could be the best option for you. This bankruptcy chapter is designed for people who have some income but just need more time to repay their debt.
  • Foreclosure Defense
    If you are receiving foreclosure threats or notices in the mail, do not fall for the common misconception that all hope is lost and you have no options. As a matter of fact, our firm has been able to help many Florida residents hold on to their homes by providing them with strategic and helpful counsel and foreclosure defense.
  • Debt Defense
    The Constitution of the United States guarantees your right to file for bankruptcy. This is just one of the viable debt relief options available to you. If you are being sued for debt or are receiving constant calls and notices from creditors, do not lose hope! Contact the St. Augustine bankruptcy lawyers at our firm for the tough and tenacious debt defense you need.
  • Loan Modifications
    One of the alternatives to bankruptcy that you may wish to consider and talk over with our legal team is the loan modification process. This debt relief option allows you to work directly with your individual creditors to come up with new terms that allow you to repay what you owe without declaring bankruptcy. Many creditors are willing to agree to loan modifications in the current economy. Our bankruptcy attorneys are skilled in negotiation and can work directly with your debt collectors to pursue a satisfactory resolution to your loans.
  • Short Sale
    When your mortgage is higher than the value of your home, this is termed an "upside down" or an "underwater" mortgage. If you are willing to walk away from both your home and your debt, talk to your lawyer about letting go of your home in a short sale and gaining a clean financial slate.
  • Wage Garnishments
    Are your debt collectors garnishing your pay? Call our law firm for the tough advocacy you need if you are the subject of harsh debt collection methods such as wage garnishment or frozen bank accounts. We can talk to you about your debt relief options about how to get your life back.
  • Repossessions
    If the bank or debt collection agency is threatening to repossess your car, call our firm immediately. We understand how to help you get out of debt and achieve the fresh financial start you need and deserve. Are you worried that bankruptcy will destroy your credit? Don't be! This is one of the most common bankruptcy myths. With guidance from our experienced bankruptcy lawyerss, you can regain a good score again!
