Thanks, Woodbridge! This week brought our one hundredth five star review.
I’m Woodbridge bankruptcy lawyer Robert Weed. And I’m happy to announce we now have one hundred five star reviews from Woodbridge bankruptcy clients.
I’ve been a bankruptcy lawyer in Northern Virginia since 1993, helping fourteen thousand people get a fresh start in bankruptcy. (More than any other Manassas or Woodbridge bankruptcy lawyer.)
I’ve had an office in Prince William County for twenty years. There are three reasons I have happy clients. The first is, I’m good at what I do. Second, I have great staff. The third is, bankruptcy really works.
Are you nervous if bankruptcy really works?
Like most people, you’re wondering if bankruptcy can really help. That’s natural. I can tell you nearly everyone feels nervous at the thought. And much better after they’ve made the plunge. Listen to these Woodbridge bankruptcy clients.
Vanessa C, in her five star Google review said, “Anybody going through bankruptcy deals with all kinds of emotions and experience anxiety & fear & worry. Valerie takes the time to listen & is reassuring and walks you through step by step making the whole process so much easier.”
Susan F left us a five star Google review, “I felt very guilty about going the bankruptcy route but realized I had no other options. The staff, specifically Valerie made everything very easy for me. I am now glad I made the decision to go through with the bankruptcy.”
Brian gave us five stars and added, “I was extremely nervous as to the thought of going through bankruptcy. The team at his office makes you feel at ease.”
If you don’t believe your neighbors in Woodbridge, believe Donald Trump
Donald Trump wouldn’t be a billionaire if he hadn’t, “used the chapter laws, the bankruptcy laws to [his] own benefit.” He adds,“Came out great … I’m glad I did it. Four times I’ve taken advantage of the laws. . . .I used the laws of the country to my benefit.” (You can read more in USA Today.)
Several years ago, I calculated that Trump’s fourth business bankruptcy got rid of twice as much debt as all twelve thousand people I had helped put together.
How About the Supreme Court? “A new opportunity in life.”
Do you still think bankruptcy is some kind of punishment because you can’t pay your debts. The official US Courts website says the exact opposite. The purpose of bankruptcy is to help you.
A fundamental goal of the federal bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress is to give debtors a financial “fresh start” from burdensome debts. The Supreme Court made this point about the purpose of the bankruptcy law in a 1934 decision:
[I]t gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.
Local Loan Co. v. Hunt, 292 U.S. 234, 244 (1934).
Do you need a new opportunity in life? That’s what my Woodbridge bankruptcy lawyer office is here for.
And the Federal Reserve? “Sharp boost” in your credit score
What’s the number one reason people drag their feet before talking to a bankruptcy lawyer? For most people, it’s their “credit.”
Now if your credit score is over 700, bankruptcy will hurt it. But if slow payments and high debts have dragged your credit down, filing bankrutpcy will help you. Two different studies by Federal Reserve banks, both came to the same conclusion.
“The individuals who go bankrupt experience a sharp boost in their credit score after bankruptcy.”
That’s from a February 2015 study sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
“Credit scores start to recover immediately after the bankruptcy filing.”
That’s according to an August 2014 study sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
Bankruptcy gives you a new start five ways.
1. Creditors can’t call or bill you.
2. They can’t take you to court or garnish you.
3. Your credit score will improve.
4. You’ll sleep better.
5. You’ll be smarter.
