Some ways we’ve helped previous clients

SAVING A HOME FROM FORECLOSURE

A client came to us a week before a foreclosure sale with more than $40,000 in mortgage arrears. They could afford to catch up over time, but couldn’t come up with the lump sum needed to stop the foreclosure. We filed Chapter 13, stopped the sale and forced the mortgage company to accept catch-up payments over five years.

CONSUMER CLAIMS IN BANKRUPTCY

Our client filed Chapter 13 to deal with high credit card debt and collections from debt buying companies. During the case, we found three separate violations of federal law and were able to go after the creditors for legal damages and attorneys fees, and put money back in our client’s pockets.

 

DEALING WITH TAX DEBT

A Minnesota couple had tax debt from six different years of being self-employed. We were able to wipe out three years of debt, reduce the amount of a tax lien, and pay the remaining debt over a five year period. After five years, our client got out of Chapter 13 bankruptcy debt-free and ready to make a fresh start.
