Peters Law Offices Show You How to Achieve the "Fresh Start" You Need

James T. Peters has helped to return a number of Northeast Iowa individuals, families and businesses to a sound financial footing with solid legal guidance on matters such as:

  • Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy protection
  • Property exemptions that help you to keep certain assets and property during your bankruptcy experience
  • Dischargeability of medical debt and credit card debt
  • Foreclosure defense
  • Alternatives to bankruptcy including short sales, or mediation and negotiation with your lender
  • The relationship between bankruptcy and divorce
  • Correction of credit report errors and rebuilding of your credit
  • Addressing tax lien and delinquent tax issues

Each of our clients is assigned a legal assistant who helps with the collection of all information and scheduling of required classes related to the bankruptcy, and guides you through the day-to-day process of your case.

You should speak with our lawyer first before resorting to quick fixes - 401(k) cash-outs, debt consolidation or ill-advised repayment plans - that many times only make matters worse. Debt relief is no do-it-yourself project. James T. Peters shows you the gradual, legal, healthful strategies that get results.

We offer a reasonable flat rate attorney fee for our bankruptcy representation throughout the legal process - plus maximum availability to any sudden questions or concerns you might have. At the Peters Law Offices, we are dedicated to your success.
