  • Where Do I File for Bankruptcy?

    Posted By Westchester County Bankruptcy Attorney || 21-Dec-2010

    Most clients do not think about where they will be filing when they consider bankruptcy, however, it is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with the various jurisdictions and trustees who work in them.

  • What is a 341 Meeting and What Am I Asked?

    Posted By Bronson Law Offices, P.C. || 16-Dec-2010

    Most of my clients are very intimidated by the prospect of being "examined" by a trustee. When I tell them it will be a five minute meeting and that there is no reason to be nervous, they do not believe me until after it is over.

  • Understanding Foreclosure Defense

    Posted By Robert Savino || 11-Oct-2010

    When a person is facing foreclosure, most attorneys will immediately recommend a Chapter 13. This is because a Chapter 13 has provisions specifically designed to address foreclosure situations. A Chapter 13 will not only stop a foreclosure sale, but will allow a home owner to pay back arrears as part of the Chapter 13 plan and possibly avoid future payments on a second mortgage. Unfortunately, a ...

  • CHAPTER 13: To Save Your Home From Foreclosure
