I’m Virginia bankruptcy lawyer Robert Weed, announcing the opening my newest location, in Stafford County, Virginia.
Many people in Stafford have been hard hit by the current economic crisis.
Zillow shows the average home value in Stafford has fallen from $400,000 in July 2006 to $250,000 today. A loss of 38%.
Stafford also has a low average age–fifth lowest in Virginia. That low median age translates to mean, young families with children. The folks hardest hit when there’s a loss of income.
I’ve helped hundreds of Stafford families get a new start–seeing them at my locations in Woodbridge and Manassas, Virginia.
It’s a strain, though, being a bankruptcy lawyer in Fredericksburg, VA. Why? People south of the Rappahannock River, Spottsylvania County and Fredericksburg City, are under the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court in Richmond, VA. North of the river, that’s Stafford County, is under the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy court in Alexandria, VA.
A lawyer who has to be in Richmond and Alexandria the same day–or even back-to-back–can be stretched pretty thin. All my locations, Sterling, Manassas, Woodbridge, and of course Alexandria, are in the jurisdiction of the Alexandria court. That enables me to meet people at each of my offices, and serve them all efficiently.
My law firm has the experience of twelve thousand bankruptcies. Three thousand now under the 2005 bankruptcy law. No other bankruptcy lawyers in Stafford have done near that many.
I’m opening in Stafford, July 5, 2011. If you want to see if I can help you, make an appointment, fill in my forms, and come on by.
