Personal Attention Every Step Of The Way

booksBalbus Law Firm will work with you to understand your personal and business financial situation, to select the type of bankruptcy that is best for you and to guide you every step of the way through the bankruptcy process. You will be in good hands.

In a typical individual case, we meet with you to learn about your financial situation. Most people want to pay their debts. A job loss, divorce, medical problem or a decline in the economy may make those debts, that were once manageable, unmanageable now. You may be facing foreclosure and want to save your house. Or, your house may be so far underwater that you would prefer to surrender the house to the bank and be relieved of any liability for the mortgage deficiency. Car loans pose similar issues. Almost everyone has significant credit card debt that has to be carefully reviewed to make sure it is dischargeable in bankruptcy. You will want to know if you can keep your house, cars and other assets. Houses and cars usually can be kept. Keeping other assets may require special planning in advance of bankruptcy. We educate clients about the entire bankruptcy process and what to expect to happen to their credit scores following bankruptcy.

Business cases differ significantly depending upon the nature of the business, whether the business can be reorganized, whether the business has to be liquidated, whether assets can be sold to pay creditors, whether contracts and leases can be restructured to save the business money and other issues. We work closely with the management to understand the business’s financial situation and to develop a strategy to take the business through bankruptcy and, wherever possible, to emerge as a healthy, reorganized business.

Balbus-logo-transThe Balbus Law Firm logo was created by Rich Scott, a graphic designer based in Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia. The multiple concentric rings convey the unique, multidisciplinary expertise that Balbus Law Firm brings to the bankruptcy process. The two shades in the background represent the way Balbus Law Firm moves clients from a negative position, too much debt, to a positive position, a fresh start. The combination of the circles and the shades forms a lowercase letter “b” representing Balbus Law Firm.
