Chapter 7 in Seattle

Seattle Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys

Falling behind on your bills doesn't give anyone the right to treat you like a failure in life. If debt is making it impossible for you to get ahead, Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers a way for you to start over financially, rebuild your credit, and stop the unrelenting harassment from unscrupulous creditors.

The federal government created Chapter 7 bankruptcy laws to help hard-working people like you become productive consumers once again. If you're mired in crippling debt, the economy ultimately suffers. The goal of Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to restore your financial well-being so you can become a contributing member of America's consumer-based economy.

You are not a failure just because you need financial help. Talk to one of our debt relief lawyers in King County today, and put your money woes in the past with a fresh financial start.

  • Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Washington allows you to eliminate almost all unsecured debt, including credit cards and medical bills

It's common for creditors to sell unpaid debt to collection agencies in as little as three months after the account becomes delinquent. These debt collection companies are essentially doing the dirty work for the creditors, and they employ a number of dubious tactics in an attempt to squeeze every penny from hard-working people that have simply fallen on hard times.

Sadly, these methods often work. Debt collectors in Washington State often try to make people feel like they are failures, or that their lives will fall into ruin if they fail to comply with their demands. Worse, they may even harass you at home or work with unrelenting phone calls and scare tactics that can make your life a living nightmare.

Most people don't understand their legal rights when it comes to debt, and you are likely no different. Our Seattle bankruptcy lawyers can stop this harassment and help you get a fresh start financially. There is a reason debt collectors hate us.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a financial resent button.

Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Seattle is a means of escape. As soon as you file with one of our Washington State bankruptcy lawyers, all collections will stop. This includes wage garnishments, lawsuits, phone calls from creditors, car repossessions, and foreclosures.
