Let Our Experienced Attorneys Guide You to Financial Relief.

Considering Bankruptcy?

You’re not alone. In 2023, the US saw an 18% jump in bankruptcy filings from the previous year, with an even higher margin projected for 2024. Within the last several years, many New Yorkers have become disheartened and even ashamed by their financial trajectory and their savings (or lack thereof) but the reality is financial hardship and overwhelming debt is becoming more common than it’s ever been.

The word bankruptcy often carries a disenfranchised connotation. As a result, many New Yorkers forced into bankruptcy simply want to get through this often painful and emotional process as quickly as possible without fully understanding their rights or options as a debtor. As my clients and colleagues will tell you, my #1 goal as a New York bankruptcy attorney for nearly 25 years is to connect my clients with a more in-depth understanding of the bankruptcy process and to diminish the stigma associated with it.
