Experience Matters

Bankruptcy laws are highly complex and require the attention of an experienced attorney. The head of our bankruptcy and debt relief practice, attorney David Van Dyke, has more than 15 years of legal experience.

Mr. Van Dyke understands each case is different. The approach that works best for one client may not be the best approach for another client. To provide superior service to each client, Mr. Van Dyke listens carefully to clients and provides a detailed analysis of their financial situation. He discusses with clients the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies as well as bankruptcy alternatives.

What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? Is It Right For Me?

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is sometimes referred to as a debt liquidation bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate and/or reduce many kinds of debt, including credit card balances, medical bills and other unsecured debts. A small number of debts, such as child support arrears, are not dischargeable by bankruptcy.

At your free consultation, we can discuss your eligibility for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Despite recent changes to bankruptcy laws which occurred in 2005, the great majority of people who visit our office are able to obtain relief either by a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
