Bankruptcy Lawyer

When you feel beaten down and overwhelmed by unmanageable debt, paying money to obtain legal help rarely seems like a feasible solution. At the Offices of Matthew C. Hines, your reluctance to take on new expenses is wholly understood by Matthew C. Hines, bankruptcy lawyer.

Nonetheless, the importance of getting guidance and advice from a seasoned attorney who is knowledgeable of the bankruptcy process and of all the nuances that it entails cannot be over-stressed. Filling for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 is a very complex endeavor.

As an experienced bankruptcy attorney, Matthew C. Hines makes it his goal to help alleviate the massive amount of pressure and stress that bankruptcy has created in your life so that you can start getting your finances back on the right track.

Four Reasons Why You Should Work With A Bankruptcy Attorney

Given that these processes entail complex paperwork and bankruptcy laws that are in a constant state of flux, filing for bankruptcy can be a very daunting experience. Your entire petition can be denied due to a single mistake on one of your forms. This could lead to new frustration and increased financial problems as you will have the same amount of debt, but you won’t be able to file for bankruptcy again until a specific amount of time has passed. Following are four of the top reasons why we recommend securing an experienced and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney to help you with your debt.

  1. Stop harassment from your creditors. Once you start the process of filing for bankruptcy your creditors are still legally allowed to contact you, but when you have a bankruptcy attorney your creditors will be directed to contact your legal representative instead. In most cases, they will choose to stop calling you and your family members, which often causes incredible strain. When your case is represented by a reputable bankruptcy attorney, your provider can contact your creditors once he has been hired so that creditor harassment is stopped.
  2. Prevent you from making costly and time-consuming errors. The paperwork that you have to complete when filing for bankruptcy is very complex and thus, there is lots of room for mistakes. It is extremely important that all of your property, debt and assets are listed in the correct categories. If you do not do this when you are submitting your petition, it is likely to result in a denial. Bankruptcy lawyer Matthew C. Hines will guide you throughout this entire process and take care of all necessary paperwork on your behalf.
  3. Guard you from uncertainty during the filing process. Given that there is a lot of communication that occurs between the court, trustees and creditors who are reviewing your petition to have your debt dismissed, there is lot that is dependent upon your actions. You could be overwhelmed by the different actions that you are required to take, but having your own attorney will make this entire process far less stressful as he can ensure that everything is done correctly and on time.
  4. Get all of the necessary information. Opting to file bankruptcy without the benefit of paid legal assistance might seem like the most cost-effective thing to do in theory, but once you have entered this process you will probably see things quite differently. The more info that you have when creating a petition, the easier it will be to get a good outcome. This process entails such a wealth of important details that it is almost impossible to know all that you need to before you file. This is where you can get help from Matthew C. Hines.

Get the help you deserve from Matthew C. Hines so that you can get your finances back on track and deal with your debt once and for all.
