Sound Advice with Dignity and Empathy
Deciding whether to file bankruptcy is a very serious decision. The majority of bankruptcies are precipitated by circumstances outside a person’s control — loss of a job, divorce, or significant illness. The stress of these events is compounded by collection letters and calls, and the fear of losing a home to foreclosure. The dedicated and compassionate bankruptcy attorneys of Baxter & Baxter, LLP, understand all of these realities, and endeavor to provide clear and concise advice, so that the bankruptcy process is as transparent and understandable as possible. Once the bankruptcy is completed and the discharge order is entered, our clients can begin a new life and get a fresh start!
