Fresno Bankruptcy Lawyer Finds Successful Solutions for Clients

California firm assists debtors and creditors in bankruptcy actions

Debt struggles create complications for everyone involved. Whether you’re an individual considering filing for a consumer bankruptcy or a creditor seeking to protect your interests during a Chapter 11 reorganization, knowledgeable legal guidance is essential. At Gates Law Group, A Professional Corporation in Fresno, we represent California clients in all types of personal and business bankruptcies. Our firm takes effective action on behalf of people and families who are fighting to save their home as well as companies fighting to recover the money that is owed to them. The bankruptcy process is often complicated, but an attorney with both knowledge of the law and courtroom experience can make it easier to navigate. We’ll handle the necessary forms and keep you apprised of how various options will affect you in the short and long term.

Debt relief attorney handles Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 actions for consumers

We understand the challenges of confronting money shortages while trying to keep a roof over your head. Though you might not see a way out, the law is specifically designed to help people like you keep their homes and other key possessions while rebuilding their credit. Our firm can help you realize the benefits of various debt relief methods, including:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy — Under Chapter 7 liquidation, all nonexempt debts are discharged once the bankruptcy is completed. As soon as you file under this program, an automatic stay is issued, which immediately halts collection actions against you. Our firm will advise you about certain debts that remain, such as student loan and child support obligations, as well as assets that could be sold off to pay creditors.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy — If you’re earning income but can’t catch up on the bills you owe, a Chapter 13 repayment plan might work for you. You still receive the automatic stay and can establish a fair schedule by which some or all of your debts can be paid off, within three to five years.
  • Debt relief through negotiation — In certain instances, effective communication with your creditors might give you the break you need without having to file bankruptcy. Using our knowledge of the law, we can pursue mutually acceptable terms with the businesses who are seeking payment from you.

Life is too short to be worried about something that can be fixed in a legal and timely manner. Our firm offers a free initial consultation and cost-effective rates so you can feel confident about your new financial start.

Knowledgeable adviser represents clients in business bankruptcies

Our firm has a deep background in collections cases that include representing creditors pursuing debts from bankrupt clients. We assist creditors in Chapter 11 proceedings where businesses seek to restructure their debt load while keeping their doors open. If you’re looking to obtain payment from someone who has filed for Chapter 12 bankruptcy, we can explain the rules for these actions, which were created to help owners of family farms and fishing operations avoid foreclosure.
