Virginia Bankruptcy Consultation by Phone

For most people, bankruptcy works. People can be nervous about trying it.  When they do, they wonder why they waited so long. (How can I say that most people are very happy?  Here’s how.   Look at these independent reviews.   Next, please read the Life After Bankruptcy survey report of people who filed bankruptcy with me three years ago.  Most people are very happy they filed bankruptcy with me.)

But you don’t need to hear about “most people.”  What you want to know is, will bankruptcy work for you?  That’s the purpose of your bankruptcy consultation.

To answer your question–to answer your question right–we need a lot of information about you.  (Before 2005, bankruptcy was a simple area of the law.  In 2005, Congress filled it with tricks and traps.)

Ready to start?  If you answered “yes”, then you’re ready to get our forms.

If you’d like a detailed, personal, free bankruptcy consultation – not a short bull session – then please

A Lot of People Want a Consultation, Before They Fill In the Forms. That can lead to mistakes.

It seems reasonable.  Why should you go to the trouble of filling in the forms, if I can’t help you?  The problem with that is I don’t know if I can help you, if you don’t fill in the forms.  Really.  Bankruptcy is a tricky area of the law–that gets trickier all the time.  My ethical duty as a lawyer is to give you my best advice.  And do do that, I need to know what I’m talking about.  Not just knowing the law; but knowing how the law applies to you.

(Do you just want to know if you are probably eligible? You can look here.)

Free Bankruptcy Phone Consultation

Please, call my office at 703-335-7793.   My receptionist will set up a time for a paralegal-consultation by phone.

(Would you feel better meeting with your paralegal in person?  We recommend that.  Just tell the receptionist when you call that you want an in-person meeting;  we’ll set it up at one of my four convenient locations.)

Looking at the forms together, your experienced paralegal will carefully gather the information we need.  We want to understand your situation.  The bankruptcy paralegal-consultation by phone takes about forty-five minutes.  (Less if you’ve looked over the forms carefully before the call.  More if you haven’t.)

At the end of the call, your paralegal will email you a copy of the completed forms, so you can be sure we have everything right.

From there, your information goes into my computer.  We’ll be ready to meet in person for your consultation with your lawyer.  We’ll answer all your questions and tell you what will work for you.

Ready to get started?  I look forward to meeting with you soon.  So download my forms, look them over, and call today.

All we do is bankruptcy law.   You’ll like our friendly service with a smile.

I love being a bankruptcy lawyer, because I can help almost everyone I see.”

Do You Need to Ask A Question?

There’s a lot of bad information out there about how bankruptcy works.  I hope I can clear some of that up.

There’s a lot of bad information out there about bankruptcy. So I understand if you “just want to ask one question” before you make an appointment for our 29 point bankruptcy consultation.

Get the Experian Credit Report that has all the information we need:

There are hundreds of different credit reports available on the internet.  The one that has the most information we need–and also the biggest print, is your credit file disclosure from Experian.  (Other credit reports–including others that say Experian–are not nearly as good.  If you subscribe to a credit monitoring system or some sort, those credit report are NOT as good as the report we’d like to see.  In other words, Credit Karma is better than nothing, but it is not as complete as
