chapter 7 lawyer
A Des Plaines Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will give you a fresh start by eliminating your debts in as little as 4 months.
A chapter 7 bankruptcy will also give you immediate relief from your creditors the instant you file your case.
Chapter 7 is perfect for eliminating your unsecured debts such as credit cards, personal loans, and medical bills.
Chapter 7 will also stop lawsuits, wage garnishments, and harassment — the instant you file your case.
I am a highly experienced Des Plaines chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer and I can analyze your situation quickly so you can figure out how to proceed — and of course I have free consultations.
chapter 13 lawyer
A Des Plains chapter 13 bankruptcy will consolidate, reorganize, and (usually) reduce your unsecured debts to pennies on the dollar using the power of federal law.
Chapter 13 is a long term bankruptcy between 36 and 60 months in duration.
This means you will need to work with a dependable, experienced, and preferably a local bankruptcy attorney you can get along with and trust — after all, you will be in a relationship with the attorney for a long time.
Over the years I’ve handled hundreds of chapter 13 cases.
- I can help you decide if chapter 13 will benefit your situation
- I’ll help you prepare a chapter 13 plan the judge will approve
- I’ll guide you along the way and help make sure your reorganization is successful
If you are a Des Plaines resident considering chapter 13 reach out to me so we could meet and talk.

A Des Plaines Bankruptcy To Stop Lawsuits
Are you getting sued for a credit card debt or any other debt?
Did you just get served with a lawsuit?
I routinely help Des Plaines residents stop lawsuits with chapter 7 bankruptcy or chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Why bankruptcy? Because bankruptcy is federal law and your debt collection lawsuit is state law. And federal law supersedes state law.
Therefore, the instant you file your bankruptcy case, the bankruptcy protection of the automatic stay goes into effect and your creditors must stop pursuing their lawsuits against you.
If they don’t, they will get sanctioned by your bankruptcy judge. And whatever they did in the lawsuit after the automatic stay went into effect won’t count.
Once you finish your chapter 7 (chapter 7 is usually over in 4 months) or chapter 13 bankruptcy case by getting a discharge, your creditors will be barred from continuing the lawsuit forever.
In fact, creditors and debt collectors typically dismiss the lawsuit once a chapter 7 bankruptcy is filed.
Bankruptcy is the ultimate way to quickly and inexpensively resolve lawsuits with the least amount of stress.
A Bankruptcy Lawyer for Senior Citizens of Des Plaines
Special bankruptcy services for Des Plaines seniors at reduced fees
Home visits when necessary
Reduced legal fees for fixed income seniors on a tight budget
I believe all of our senior citizens should be enjoying their much deserved golden years.
Too often these days that is not possible due to debt problems that a bankruptcy case can make go away.
Of course there’s nothing unusual about a bankruptcy lawyer who assists senior citizens.
What is unusual, is that when necessary, I will personally make home visits to seniors who need to file a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy case.
And I will reduce my fees to make sure chapter 7 relief is affordable and available on a fixed income.
A home visit or two may be necessary when you have mobility issues and have no one readily available to escort you to the office.
I have already successfully assisted numerous seniors this way.
The representation generally requires two home visits if you don’t have internet access or ability to email. If you do have internet access and the ability to email, the representation may only require one home visit for final review and signing of documents.
The first visit is to finalize representation (i.e. sign the representation agreement and pay the initial attorney retainer) and to pick-up necessary documents and gather information.
The second visit is for a face-to-face review of the bankruptcy documents and for signatures.
In one case, I have also personally picked-up and driven a Des Plaines senior to a chapter 13 trustee meeting downtown. This client stopped the foreclosure of her home by a reverse mortgage lender.
