Bankrutpcy Filings Increasing

Bankruptcy Filings On The Rise

We noticed a significant increase in bankruptcy filings in the last 12 months, so we did some research to see if our experience was unique.  It wasn't.  Total bankruptcy filings rose 16.8 percent over the lat 12 months.  Filings are up both in personal and business bankruptcies.  According to the latest statistics available, non-business filings last year reached 434,064, compared with 374,240 in December 2022.  This is the fourth  quarter that total bankruptcy filings rose.

What does that mean for you?  First, you are not alone.  We help people with the same problem on a daily basis.  Second, don't put off calling us for a free consultation.  People who wait too long often lose or sell off assets that they could have protected if they called our office sooner.  Third, there is a significant rise in companies selling debt relief and debt consolidation products that simply do not work.  In far too many cases, people are deceived into thinking that these products work and they shell out money month after month.  By the time they realize that the program isn't working, they have spent thousands of dollars and often lived with debt for several years more than they needed to.  If you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, we can have the debt discharged in 4 month's time.  Don't delay in calling us.
