Bankruptcy in Long Island

By Jacoby & Jacoby  Jun. 28, 2010 2:17p

The current recession and the bubble and burst cycle that has been affecting many aspects of the American economy has caused debt to become overwhelming for many individuals and businesses.  With many stocks and real estate investments suddenly having dropped in value, and with unemployment in New York being near 9%, it is even more difficult to make payments on mortgages, pay off divorce or medical bills, or even just keep your business in the black. As hard as it may seem, bankruptcy may be your best option to regain control of your life and finances.

Whether you have credit card debt, insurmountable medical bills, personal loans, mortgages, or utility bills, we may be able to have your unsecured debt eliminated.  Secured debts, such as child/spousal support, taxes, and student loans cannot be eliminated, but we can make them easier to handle.

Long Island debtor relief is possible. Either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the way to eliminate your debt and get a fresh start. At Jacoby & Jacoby, we know how stressful and confusing debt can be; a Long Island bankruptcy attorney at our firm can provide a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your situation, whether bankruptcy is right for you, and what type of bankruptcy if it is. In addition to assisting with filing for bankruptcy, our lawyers also handle creditor harassment, bank account freezes, wage garnishments, foreclosure, repossession, debt consolidation, and alternatives to bankruptcy.  Whatever your financial situation is with lenders, it is in your best interest to hire a bankruptcy lawyer.
