What Our Clients Say…

He is who you want (period)!

“I consulted a few lawyers but decided to go with George. George could not have extended me more patience during this turbulent & debilitating time. He was extremely sympathetic, personable, knowledgeable, clear & concise as to my particular situation. George made sure that everything was covered prior to filing. There were no surprises or “hiccups” with my case. My case was smooth sailing even though my world felt rocked. His price is reasonable and feel as though he did more work than what he charged. He always returned my call, was always prepared. I am grateful to him for everything he extended to me and my situation. Thank you!!”

Chapter 7 vs Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Protection in Massachusetts

Choosing whether to file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 can be a little confusing. Deciding which is the right choice for you depends on your debts, assets, and your income. Our Lawyers locally here in Massachusetts understand the bankruptcy laws and can help guide you through the process, so that you avoid problems and benefit the full protection you deserve.

Why Choose Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection

What is Chapter 7 bankruptcy? Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation proceeding is the most common form of protection for an individual a person to eliminate debt. Often people can completely discharge unsecured debts, including medical bills, personal loans, credit card bills, foreclosures, and car repossessions to name a few. To qualify for Chapter 7 in Massachusetts, you must have little or no disposable income. The courts will consider your median income, and household expenses. Even though there are barriers to filing for debt relief, Chapter 7 is still a viable option for many individuals. The experienced attorneys at our law firm can help.

Chapter 7 offers immediate relief and debt forgiveness by preventing creditors from:


Proceeding with Foreclosure


Repossessing Your Car or Other Assets


Harassing You with Collection Calls


Garnishing Your Wages


Filing Lawsuits to Collect on Your Debt

Why Choose Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Protection

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a low-interest, and sometimes interest-free debt repayment plan that consolidates your debt for repayment over a period of years. Chapter 13 is helpful for debtors who have regular income and can pay back a portion of their debts through a repayment plan. This can be an advantage as individuals can restructure their debts and keep their property, without the fear of repossession or foreclosure. This debt relief option is often referred to as reorganization bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Assistance is Our Passion!
We Are Dedicated to Your Success


Stop Garnishment of Wages. By restructuring your debts through bankruptcy protection, you can avoid the stress of garnishment. We understand the anxiety with having trouble paying your bills and restructuring your debt as soon as possible is the first step to a new financial beginning.


Eliminate 2nd and 3rd mortgages. Many individuals and families in Massachusetts owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. These added liabilities can be removed as unsecured debt. Unsecured debt is given a low priority in a Chapter 13 proceeding, and is paid as part of your payment plan with the court.


Keep your car! Filing for Chapter 13 will afford you the opportunity to retain your vehicle and stop the finance company from taking your car away from you. Often the court will recalculate a reduced balance that will be owed to reflect the current value of your vehicle.


Chapter 13 will immediately stop foreclosure on your home. This will give your the ability to make payments towards your mortgage arrears, without the fear of foreclosure.
