We work hard to help people who have found themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place financially. We are happy to help you navigate the complexities of the bankruptcy process. With the current pandemic, widespread unemployment and social unrest, we know that times are hard for everyone and we are here to help. If you are overwhelmed by debt, debt collectors, or garnishments, call us and we can help you reclaim your life.

Bankruptcy can offer immediate relief to people who are overwhelmed by debt and their stressful situation. Filing your bankruptcy stops bill collectors in their tracks. A bankruptcy filing can stop debt collectors from taking possession of your home, vehicle, and income and can end the constant nasty phone calls from debt collectors.

We currently offer assistance with two types of bankruptcy cases: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: This is the most common form of bankruptcy. One example of a situation you may find yourself in that could make Chapter 7 bankruptcy right for you is a foreclosure on your home.  Chapter 7 bankruptcy enables you to discharge most of your debts. In other words, all that credit card debt that you can’t get out from under could be wiped away.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: There may be times that a person earns more money than is allowed by a Chapter 7. In that case, a Chapter 13 may be a better option. With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be able to save your home from foreclosure and protect some of your other assets from being sold. In this type of bankruptcy proceeding, you are required to make monthly payments toward your total debt to a Trustee for a specified number of years based on your income and debt.

Client Reviews
"I was in a serious car accident and decided to consult with attorneys when my medical treatment expenses overwhelmed me. After speaking with a few attorneys over the phone, Barry Wallis was the only one who seemed like he truly wanted to help me, not just sign me on as a client. He gave me valuable recommendations over the phone and I realized I could trust him, so I asked him to be my lawyer." Shelena Yarukhina
"I relied on Barry's guidance and advocacy for five years as I dealt with the aftermath of a traffic accident. Barry's wisdom and determination was a true blessing" Dan Tonnes
