Thank you for visiting! You have probably received a letter from me, or maybe just Googled something like “bankruptcy attorney”, “Chapter 7 lawyer”, “Chapter 13 attorney”, “Denham Springs attorney”, or maybe even “Livingston Parish attorney.” If you have, you have reached the right place! I am a federally designated debt relief agency; I help people file for relief under the Bankruptcy code. I also do successions, write wills, draft Power of Attorney documents, and of course I am able to help you with your personal injury and off-shore claims.
Although I think of myself as a general practice attorney, and I do offer a number of services, the current economy has resulted in many people needing help either saving their home, or defending themselves against debt collectors, and often both. Recognizing this, I am focusing much of my time on helping people recover from circumstances beyond their control. Remember, I represent real people, never corporations, banks, or other entities that care nothing for you and your family. This firm’s aim is to help you and your family, never the banks.
Despite living in Denham Springs, I used to make the commute to the West Bank of Jefferson Parish. While working there, I grew increasingly frustrated that no one was offering the services the people of our area need to save their homes and to get a fresh start, so I decided to make the investment in our community by opening this office in 2011. As of January 2013, I am now sharing a space with the amazing Ivy Graham, allowing us both to offer greater services to you and your family.
All over the parish there are abandoned homes, and many more that people are trying to sell in an effort to get out from under a burden that has become too heavy to bear; I believe many of these homes could be saved if the owners only knew that Chapter 13 bankruptcy not only allows you up to five years to catch up on the house, but will help take care of most other forms of debt. This means that there is hope! It is possible to keep your home!
For those who are just tired and want to walk away, I can also help you file a Chapter 7 to get out from under the mortgage and walk away from the house, allowing you to let the lender deal with the poor housing market, and give you a fresh start, often with no more penalty to you than you have already suffered. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also great for many people who just need a fresh start, but wish to keep their home and car, and can often be done while working out a loan modification with your lender.
Not everyone qualifies for a Chapter 7, or even for a Chapter 13, and I cannot guarantee that I can help, but isn’t it worth coming in for a free consultation to see if you can save your home and eliminate all your other debt? The initial consultation is free with no strings attached, and most of our clients leave feeling the relief that only comes from knowing that there is hope.
