Is your bankruptcy case a disaster in Colorado? Learn more in our blog.
I have been a bankruptcy lawyer for over two decades. This means I have seen many bankruptcy filings; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Many people call me after they have already filed for bankruptcy in Littleton, Aurora or Centennial. They usually call me in a panic because their case is ugly. If your bankruptcy case is a disaster, don’t panic. There is still hope.

A Tale of Bankruptcy Woe:

After months of harassing debt collection calls, you decide you need to file for bankruptcy. You hire an inexpensive lawyer whose inexperienced paralegal prepares your case. You wondered if this was a good option, but your lawyer told you “not to worry.” You went to your bankruptcy hearing expecting to be finished in a few minutes. Then the worst happens. The bankruptcy trustee declares the he’s going to take your house. It’s too late to back out now. You call your lawyer who said not to worry, and he says “sorry, I don’t control the courts.”

What to Do to Recover from Disaster

I have taken over many ugly cases. Occasionally, there are ways to save a disastrous case. Here are a few steps we will take:

1. Free Bankruptcy Evaluation

I will sit with you and discuss the details of your bankruptcy filing. I’ll listen to your story, take a look at the paperwork, and then we can discuss how we can save you from your situation.

2. Solutions

I’ll work with you to find a solution. Occasionally, mistakes were made during the bankruptcy process, such as filing your case under the wrong chapter. If this is the case, we may be able to convert your case to the correct chapter of bankruptcy. Or, sometimes we are able to illustrate to the trustee that your situation was misrepresented originally. I will work to figure out a solution to your bankruptcy case.
