Debt Relief Help From An Experienced, Aggressive Bankruptcy Lawyer In Tupelo

Sometimes debt comes from a lost job, a divorce or unexpected expenses. Perhaps you simply got in over your head with credit. Serious debt is like a wall keeping you from living the life you deserve. I can help you break that wall with bankruptcy.

I am the “Bulldog of Mississippi.” Since I became a bankruptcy attorney more than 40 years ago, I have fought all of my cases with the tenacity of a bulldog, fighting for my clients’ interests. When you need a bankruptcy lawyer in Tupelo, Mississippi, call my Okolona office at 662-260-6646 or contact me online. I can help you find a fresh start and financial freedom through bankruptcy.

Get A Fresh Start

Bankruptcy can help you get a fresh start from many of the problems associated with insurmountable debt such as:

  • Harassment from finance companies
  • Collection agencies calling nonstop
  • Wage garnishments
  • Potential loss of your house or a car that you depend on

When you file for bankruptcy, your creditors must stop all of these collection efforts. Bankruptcy will temporarily stop foreclosure proceedings and repossession until the bankruptcy is completed.

Finding Out Whether Chapter 7 Or Chapter 13 Is Right For You

Many people facing serious debt file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which involves debt elimination. Chapter 13 bankruptcy looks more like debt reorganization.

When filing for bankruptcy, you will take a means test to determine your income and ability to pay your debts. If you make a high enough income, you may be forced into Chapter 13. Only an experienced lawyer can help you make the right decisions regarding Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Bankruptcy can be used to give you relief from burdensome:

  • Car payments
  • Credit card bills
  • House payments

Only a competent attorney familiar with new laws can advise you whether you are better off with a Chapter 7 or 13. If you are drowning in debt and in danger of losing everything, I can help.
