Required Courses

If you retain a bankruptcy attorney most creditors must contact your bankruptcy attorney and must cease calling you. Collection agencies cannot contact you but a creditor that holds the original debt would still be able to call you. It is essential to have a bankruptcy attorney that has knowledge and experience dealing with personal financial matters before you file and after you are discharged. Sometimes filing for bankruptcy is not in your best interest. It should always be used as a last resort. You should exercise other options before filing for a bankruptcy. Negotiating with creditors sometimes is an ideal strategy to dealing with personal financial troubles. If negotiating with creditors, then there are tax implications that often need to be addressed. If it is imperative that you file for bankruptcy to stop a garnishment or if you have debts that are too onerous to be paid it is necessary to have an attorney who can maximize your exemptions and who knows how the means test works. Jacob A. Perrone has the knowledge of bankruptcy law and experience dealing with the bankruptcy courts to allow you to obtain a "Fresh Start".
