Do You Really Need A Lawyer To File For Bankruptcy?

Most people who file for bankruptcy have never been through the process before and don’t know how to ensure that they obtain the maximum benefit from filing. If you are wondering why you or your company needs a bankruptcy attorney, it is important to understand that bankruptcy is a very complex area of law and that there is a lot more to it than filling out some forms.

At the Law Offices of Buddy D. Ford, P.A., we represent clients throughout Florida in a variety of personal and business bankruptcy matters. We handle all aspects of Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 filings. We take a very hands-on, personalized approach to every case we take. We will walk you through the entire process and work to see that your rights are protected at all times.

Your Advocate In Florida Bankruptcy Proceedings

When you hire our firm, we will be by your side from start to finish. From gathering the initial paperwork and submitting your petition to obtaining the final discharge of your debts, we will be there with you. We will attend all hearings throughout the process and deal with any harassment issues from creditors who refuse to obey the automatic stay.

In addition, we will counsel you on which debts can be discharged and which cannot. We will provide a full evaluation of your case and walk you through all of the options available to you. Many people don’t understand the difference between the various chapters of bankruptcy, and they may not be aware of available alternatives. We will make sure that you have all of the information you need to make the best decision for your situation.
