The circumstances that prompt people to contemplate bankruptcy can be very stressful, and the complications of the bankruptcy court procedures don't make the situation any easier.  We will explain the bankruptcy process to you, including the types of bankruptcies that may be available to you, and we will tell you the information and documentation you need to provide for a successful bankruptcy petition.

After you and we agree to the legal representation, we will collect all the necessary information and documentation from you.  We will use these to determine the appropriate type of bankruptcy to be filed, in consultation with you.  We will complete all the required schedules and forms, including the various documents to be filed with the bankruptcy court, and also attend the Creditors Meeting with you.
