Bankruptcy & Foreclosure
Don’t let the need for a foreclosure or filing for bankruptcy make you feel like a failure. Filing for bankruptcy can provide a sense of reprieve for individuals or businesses buried under tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. Settling your debt through bankruptcy when all other options have failed will give you the chance to start anew.
Anyone can fall on hard times, call our office today to help you get out ahead when you are falling behind. With over 20 years of combined experience our attorneys can help you navigate through the steps and procedures of bankruptcy and help you to ensure that you receive the best debt settlement for your individual case.
Getting hurt can interrupt your life, more so, when the injury is due to no fault of your own. With injuries come medical expenses and lost time from work which means you are not getting paid.
You may have lost wages but all your landlord or mortgage lender are interested in is being paid. What about the hospital bill or prescriptions? Physical therapy? Follow up visits? Where is the money going to come from? Who is responsible for paying all of these bills from the injury? The questions keep coming and you don’t know what to do.
This is where the experience attorneys at Merritt Law Office come in. If you or a family member is injured by a third party, especially if the injury is a result of their negligence, a call to our law office should be second to your medical care provider. Let us help you get answers to your questions.
