Our law firm has walked thousands of clients through the Illinois bankruptcy process. Our specialization in Chapter 7  and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings ensures you receive exceptional results in a timely manner. By filing for bankruptcy, among many other benefits, we can help you:

  1. Stop Vehicle Repossession
  2. Save Your Retirement Savings
  3. End Creditor Harassment

  6. Eliminate Credit Card Debt

Luckily, federal bankruptcy laws applied in Illinois are very forgiving; allowing debtors to discharge a majority of their unsecured debts. Illinois law allows for forgiveness of payday loan debt, past due utility bills, credit card debt, medical expenses, deficiency debt related to car repossessions and home foreclosures, and more.

Why Talk With A Bankruptcy Law Firm?

A limited budget can leave many individuals and businesses feeling hopeless as bills and expenses begin to pile up. Desperate times lead to desperate measures, causing many of us to make ill-advised financial decisions. Such financial decisions include, but are not limited to:

  1. Taking loans from family and friends that breakdown those relationships
  2. Mistakenly selling assets protected from creditors
  3. Taking out cash advances on credit cards that cause further financial harm
  4. Liquidating retirement accounts unnecessarily to make bill payments
  5. Writing bad checks that can be prosecuted or cause high bank fees
  6. Securing loans from payday loan companies at interest rates upwards of 300%
  7. Engaging in gambling or fraudulent/illegal activity

It’s crucial that all of your options are weighed before making any hasty financial decisions. In most cases, the consequences of your actions could prevent you from achieving financial stability for a very long time, much longer than recovering from a properly planned bankruptcy. If you’re feeling shackled by debt, the best course of action is to contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney. A knowledgeable attorney can examine your unique case and help you determine the best route to take moving forward. Better yet, requesting a consultation with A Bankruptcy Law Firm, LLC will put you in direct contact with an experienced attorney, certified public accountant (CPA) and financial advisor, Michael J. Benson, the firm’s founding attorney. Schedule a free initial consultation by contacting us today.
