Herndon Bankruptcy Lawyer Information

Posted by / in Blog /

Looking for a top-rated bankruptcy lawyer in Herndon, VA?

Let’s stop the phone calls ASAP and clear the debt.  You can eliminate the stress and take control of your life again.

I’m Herndon Bankruptcy Lawyer Robert Weed. For twenty years, I served people in Herndon from my bankruptcy lawyer office in Sterling, VA. I moved my Sterling office to Herndon June 15, 2018.

My new Herndon bankruptcy lawyer office is 13800 Coppermine Rd, Herndon, VA 20171.

My new Herndon Bankruptcy Lawyer Office is at 13800 Coppermine Rd, Herndon.

It Costs a Lot to Live Around Here

I’ve helped people file bankruptcy in Herndon since 1993.  I’ve talked to nearly a thousand people in Herndon and Reston about their financial problems.

I know why even people with strong incomes can need a “a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort.”  (That’s what the Supreme Court says is the purpose of bankruptcy.) It costs a lot to live here.

The average house payment or rent for a family of four is $2689. The high cost of living is one reason the number of Hendon bankruptcy filings totals two thousand total since 2007.

Many people in Herndon have long commutes.  It’s 24 miles to Washington, DC.  It’s hard to get where you are going without paying a toll. Most people in Herndon are homeowners–and the housing crisis hit hard here.

Children are expensive.  The average family size in Herndon is bigger than the rest of Fairfax county. The tech economy in Herndon has been hurt by budget uncertainties in Congress. All those factors explain why more of your Herndon neighbors have filed bankruptcy than you might expect.

The purpose of bankruptcy is to help you

Another reason the Herndon bankruptcy rate is high.  People in high income communities have something to lose!  The purpose of bankruptcy is to help you–there’s a reason Donald Trump’s businesses have been in Chapter 11 four times. (Donald Trump said that bankruptcy laws do a great job”.)

Many people mistakenly think the bankruptcy is some kind of punishment.  Actually, bankruptcy is a tool to protect what you have.

Bankruptcy gives you a new start in five ways. The creditors can’t call or bill you; they can’t send you court papers. Your credit score will go up. You’ll sleep better. You’ll be smarter.

One reason I like being a bankruptcy lawyer:  I can help nearly everyone who comes to see me.

The 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Was Designed to be Hard on High Income People

It can be tough for higher income people to get approved for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The 2005 bankruptcy reform law tries to push all families over the median income into Chapter 13 payment plans.  (As of April 2019, the median income in Virginia is $91,781 for a family of three; $105,261 for a family of four.)  A majority of the families in Herndon are over that Virginia median income.  But few, when they get into financial trouble, could actually afford a five year Chapter 13 payment plan.  (Most Chapter 13 plans fail.) Five of the twelve highest income counties in America are in Northern Virginia.  I serve those counties.

I get more over-median income families approved for chapter 7 bankruptcy than any other lawyer in Northern Virginia. 

I’m the only full time Herndon Bankruptcy Lawyer

Bankruptcy is all I do.  I know it’s hard to talk to someone about your financial situation.  But I can tell you–you’ll like our friendly service with a smile. You can read more of my 742 five-star reviews, here.    When you read what they say, you can see the smiles.

Herndon bankruptcy rate–one family of every nine since 2007

Herndon is located in western Fairfax County.  Fairfax is the third highest income county in America, (Loudoun is first) and Herndon has higher income that the county average. In the twelve years since the housing crisis in 2007, about one out of every nine families in Herndon filed bankruptcy. Are you surprised?  I’m not.
