  • Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy protection
  • Property exemptions that help you to keep certain assets and property during your bankruptcy experience

  • Foreclosure defense
  • Alternatives to bankruptcy including short sales, or mediation and negotiation with your lender
  • The relationship between bankruptcy and divorce

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 Peters & Longmuir, PLC, we are dedicated to your success.
