Bankruptcy Can Give You a Fresh Start.
Bankruptcy is an old concept. It’s in the Constitution. In fact, the concept of discharging debt goes back to the Old Testament. Western civilization has realized for thousands of years that being trapped in debt is a bad thing.
Our current bankruptcy system isn’t perfect by any means, but it allows the “honest but unfortunate debtor” a fresh start. A new beginning.
Bankruptcy is a great option for many of our clients, but we don’t sell bankruptcy. The most important thing is to find out what’s right for you and your family. Maybe that’s bankruptcy. Maybe it isn’t.
We’ll help you determine if bankruptcy is right for you. If it’s not, we’ll discuss other options like a debt management plan with a reputable non-profit like Family Services of Charleston. And for some clients debt settlement—negotiating directly with creditors—is the option we recommend.
We provide our clients with more bankruptcy information than any firm I know of in South Carolina. For more information, visit our bankruptcy website and the Charleston Bankruptcy Blog, which is part of that site. Our bankruptcy blog has over 100 posts about all aspects of bankruptcy. It’s searchable and organized by topics. You can also read Russ DeMott’s posts at Bankruptcy Law Network by clicking here. If you have a bankruptcy question, chances are good that issue is addressed in one blog post or another. For a consultation, call us at (843) 695-0830. Find out if bankruptcy is right for you.
