The "great recession" has not been kind to many Iowans. You may be struggling to pay bills, trying to decide if you want to get a divorce or considering whether it is time to sell a piece of property or a house. You need a Buchanan County bankruptcy law attorney to help you determine what your best options are.
At the Peters Law Offices, we have a talented team, led by James T. Peters, waiting to advise you on these difficult issues from our offices in Independence and Vinton.
Mr. Peters has been in practice for more than 25 years. His skill and experience in helping people through difficult times is seen in the number of referrals he receives from former clients. He will guide you through the legal process, helping you establish and then meet your goals for the outcome of your case.
