New Jersey Bankruptcy Attorneys

Property Lawyers New Jersey

In the unfortunate event of having more debt than viable assets, filing for bankruptcy is one viable option to pay your debts as well as get a fresh start. It’s definitely something that we all wish we won’t have to ever deal with but interestingly, filing for bankruptcy happens more often and to more people than we think. In fact, a total of 775,578 bankruptcy cases were filed all over the United States in 2018. And while bankruptcy cases are handled by federal courts, there are certain circumstances in which the bankruptcy code is applied differently from one state to the next. This is one reason why handling your bankruptcy case with the guidance and support of a New Jersey-licensed attorney is very important.

Another reason is the fact that the process of filing for bankruptcy can be a complicated and daunting task to take on alone—it demands thorough familiarity of federal and state laws, meticulous details, constant scrutiny, and not to mention a lot of paperwork. But you won’t have to go through all that if you partner with an established attorney from the Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas.

Our team of bankruptcy lawyers are well equipped with the knowledge and experience in walking people through bankruptcy, helping them rebuild credit, and helping save their homes…and they do all this under the Bankruptcy Code as well as New Jersey laws and policies. Whether you’re looking at Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we’re here to help.

Do I Need A Bankruptcy Lawyer?

Patel, Soltis, & Cardenas Real Estate Law Firm New Jersey

This is one of the most commonly asked questions by people who are facing bankruptcy issues. And you might think that hiring an attorney to work on your case for you will only mean wasting whatever funds you have left. That’s not necessarily true.

Technically, you don’t need a bankruptcy attorney because the law doesn’t require you to have one. You can file for bankruptcy and work on it pro se or pro fer (on one’s own behalf)…but doing so would demand from you more work and more time for a notably lower success rate. It’s also worth noting that judges and other employees of the court will be prohibited from providing you with legal advice if you decide to file on your behalf.

So no, you’re not required to have a bankruptcy lawyer, but it is highly recommended that you work with one for matters as complicated as bankruptcy. The Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas provides complete legal assistance and support for various bankruptcy concerns. We have accomplished state-licensed attorneys who specialize in consumer bankruptcy as well as commercial bankruptcy. Highly equipped to take on the role of trustees, our legal professionals are ready to assist and advise you throughout the entire process, which can include the following tasks:

  • Knowing what bankruptcy type to file.
  • Ensuring accurate, timely, and truthful filing of bankruptcy.
  • Protecting the interests of creditors.

  • Reviewing debt repayment plans.
  • Making recommendations to judges concerning plans.
  • Providing guidance, support, and sound professional advice during hearings.
  • Providing sound professional advice regarding the selling or keeping of assets.
  • Providing guidance and updates during the entire process.

The roles and responsibilities of a trustee can be overwhelming for someone who isn’t familiar with them, but an experienced bankruptcy attorney from the Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas would be up for the challenge. We look forward to walking you through a successful bankruptcy case.
