Chapter 7 in Tacoma

Get the facts from our Tacoma Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys

Falling behind on bills can happen to anyone, at any time, and it doesn't give anyone the right to treat you like a failure or bad person. If out-of-control debt is making it impossible for you and your family to get your finances back under control, Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers a way to start over. Not only does bankruptcy make it possible to eliminate most or all of your unsecured debt, it also gives you a chance to rebuild your credit, and put a stop to the endless phone calls from creditors and debt collectors.

The federal government created Chapter 7 bankruptcy to help people like you eliminate debt and become active consumers once again. It makes sense, because if you're mired in crippling debt with no way to ever pay it off, the economy ultimately suffers.

You are not a failure just because you need help, and filing for bankruptcy could be one of the smartest financial decisions you'll ever make. Talk to one of our debt relief lawyers in Pierce County today, and find out if you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Stop all debt collection with help from our Washington State Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers
  • Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to eliminate all or most unsecured debt, including pay day loans, credit cards, medical bills
  • Most Chapter 7 bankruptcies take less than 120 days
  • When your debt is discharged, your credit rating immediately starts to improve
  • Our Tacoma bankruptcy attorneys fight for you by petitioning the court to stop all debt collection and harassing debt collection phone calls

Creditors like credit card companies routinely sell unpaid debt to collection agencies for pennies on the dollar, in as little as three months after the payments stop. These debt collection agencies are essentially doing the dirty work the creditors, and it seems like they will stop at nothing to get money from debtors who have simply fallen on hard times though no fault of their own.

These ruthless tactics often work. Debt collectors often try to make people feel like they are failures in life, threaten them with lawsuits, or say that they will lose everything if they file for bankruptcy. This unyielding harassment may even extend to a place of work or other family members. All of which can turn your life into a living nightmare.

First of all, you have legal rights when it comes to debt, and this is something you can enforce. Our Tacoma bankruptcy lawyers can put an end to this harassment, petition the court to have your debt discharged, and help you get a fresh start financially.

Client Reviews
Erin Lane is the best attorney I have met by far! I came to her during a very difficult time in my life. I was needing to file a bankruptcy. She was very kind, non-intimidating, and well-understood. She actually came across like a good friend. To this day I still remember and appreciate her (no-stressing approach) I deem Erin qualified for any position having to do with her knowledge in these types of legal matters! Keith D Wilson
