Your Future Stability Does Not End at Bankruptcy Create a Future Free of Debt and Stress

Life After Bankruptcy

Guiding You Through the Process

If you feel that filing for bankruptcy will ruin you, we want you to know that is just one of many bankruptcy myths. With the help of an experienced bankruptcy lawyer from Smith Ortiz, P.C., you can stand a good chance of readily bouncing back from your bankruptcy. We can show you how bankruptcy can actually be a viable solution for overwhelming debt in certain cases, allowing you to pursue a stronger, brighter, and more-reliable financial future.

Our team has more than 25 years of combined law, tax, and financial experience to help you with any fiscal obstacles that may be in your way. Whether it's filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, we can explain clearly what it means, how the process works, and why it might be the right solution for you.

Contact our attorneys today to get started down the right path with confidence.

Your Future Stability Does Not End at Bankruptcy

When you partner with us, you can actually come out on the other side of bankruptcy economically stronger than before. By working closely with our clients and keeping them well-informed, we hope to provide them with new skills and wisdom that they can use to create a future that is free of debt and stress.

Depending on the circumstances of your bankruptcy, you can actually file without losing your:

  • Home
  • Automobile
  • Business
  • Credit score

If we determine that Chapter 7 bankruptcy is right for you, you can expect to wipe out much of your debt. Any debt that is not entirely erased should be quite minimal, allowing you to easily pay it off. We can also help you explore Chapter 13 options, which allows you to restructure your finances. This new repayment plan can be much more forgiving and lenient than what your creditors were previously demanding.

Secure a New Financial Start with Experienced Legal Help

At Smith Ortiz, P.C., the goal of our lawyers is to reset your financial situation by getting you out of debt and arming you with the correct information you need to keep your future debt-free. We want to help you throughout the entire process, from initial filings to rebuilding your credit afterwards. Our whole team is here to use their experience and skills for your benefit.
