Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you can find some helpful information about filing bankruptcy here. I have been a Portland bankruptcy lawyer since 1994 and before that worked as a bankruptcy attorney in Eugene for a couple of years after graduating from law school in 1992. in the last 20 years I have helped more than 1,000 people file bankruptcy in Oregon or address their financial difficulties with other options such as negotiation and debt settlement. Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email with any questions or concerns you may have.
I understand that even thinking about filing a bankruptcy brings up many emotions and worries, and trying to choose a lawyer to help you through the bankruptcy filing process is not easy. Let’s face it, there are many bankruptcy attorneys in Oregon and, unless you were referred to me from someone you know and trust, you do not know much about me. I hope that after browsing through this website you will learn enough to feel comfortable contacting me via email or telephone to schedule a free consultation. Filing bankruptcy is a legal and ethical option for people that need help. My initial consultations are always free* and there is no pressure to “sign up.”
Former Client Testimonial:
“I would just like to thank you very much for helping us out in such a trying time. You were very professional and in no way made us ever feel like we were "bad people". We came to you with only days before we lost our home (because others said they could help and left us our to dry) and you were able to help us file bankruptcy and keep our home. I am very grateful and will recommend you to anyone who needs a good attorney. Again I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Respectfully Mrs. H.
Is Filing Bankruptcy Right For You?
Is bankruptcy the right choice? Bankruptcy can help you and other honest, hard-working people get rid of burdensome debts and get bills under control. It can also do many other things like the following:
How to get started.
You can start the process toward solving your financial problems and rebuilding the credit rating you deserve by calling me at (503) 284-0994, emailing me at email@example.com or using my contact form or online appointment page to arrange a free office or telephone consultation. I can also often answer questions by email. You may also want to look at my questionnaire to see what information will be needed to get a case filed.
No Charge Bankruptcy Consultation:
I offer a free initial bankruptcy consultation by telephone or in person at my NE Portland office so that you can get your questions answered and make sure bankruptcy will work for you. I can also often answer some questions by email if you do not feel comfortable calling. An initial consultation will usually last about one hour and during that time we will discuss the following things:
Required Profiling credit counseling:
When Congress changed the bankruptcy laws back in 2005 they created a mandatory pre-filing credit counseling requirement. I have recommended www.urgentco.com for more than a year with good results. They charge $16 for single or married applicant and the bankruptcy counseling can be done entirely online. You do not need to have this done before you schedule a consultation with me but it does need to be completed before you can file a bankruptcy case with the court.
