Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Everything You Need to Know About Filing Bankruptcy Chapter 7

Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the right option for people with unsecured debts, including older income tax debt, credit cards, personal loans, medical bills and deficiency claims from repossessed vehicles. If you have little or no disposable income, filing for bankruptcy can help eliminate your debt and give you the opportunity to start over with no payments to creditors. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can help you understand the process and assist you with how to file for Chapter 7. You will receive all the information you need to make sure you choose the best possible debt relief option for your unique situation. While many people fear the possibility of losing their personal property when they file for bankruptcy, we are committed to helping you find a solution that will allow you to keep as many of your assets as possible. If it seems that some of your property may be at risk, we can look at other solutions to better fit your requirements.

Filing for Bankruptcy Chapter 7 Can Be Painless

In most instances, filing for bankruptcy Chapter 7 does not result in the loss of personal property. Mostly, trustees will look at nonexempt property, or items that can be sold to repay your outstanding debts. The overwhelming majority of Chapter 7 cases we file are declared “no-asset” by trustees. In such cases, it is decided that none of the personal property will bring enough money to justify liquidation, and property will therefore not be at risk. If you do need to file for bankruptcy, our experienced attorneys will help you with how to file and follow through with all the required procedures.

I have dealt with Matt for a few years for a couple of matters for myself and for my mother-in-law. Matt has always been a man of his word; anything he said he would do was done as expected. He provided timely and accurate advice when requested. Matt never pushed services that were not required and at certain times he recommended less costly services that would achieve the same results. I highly recommend him as very honest and ethical. He always disclosed fees in advance and there were never any "surprise" fees.— jimcar13
Mr Nahrgang was easy to work with, and did an excellent job with my case. Though my case turned out to be more complex than we had originally realized, he handled every complication promptly and competently.— eyedoc89
I was first recommended to Matthew Nahrgang by a friend. I was having serious financial issues at the time. I went to Matt and had a conversation which set my mind at ease. He is straight to the point, honest and tells you how it is. No frills kind of guy. He also is confident in his business and knows the law very well, which is what set me at ease. It was not near a big deal as I thought it to be. He does what he says he is going to do and does it in a timely manner. I have used Matt a few times now and I've recommend him to many of my friends and business acquaintances. I highly recommend Matthew Nahrgang!— my1leelee
In relation to my bankruptcy and in retrospect, I was thankful that I had discovered Mr. Nahrgang and had engaged him to respresent me in my case. I found him to be respectful, understanding, highly knowledgeable and trustworthy. I appreciate all that he did on my behalf and have recommended him to friends and family.— Orangefit09
