Most of Our Potential Clients Qualify for Bankruptcy Protection
If you have accumulated unmanageable debt, you are far from alone in Central Florida. Millions of people here and across the country are in a similar situation. For many, the most direct and reliable path to financial recovery and freedom from constant debt collection harassment starts with reliable counsel on Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While not everyone qualifies for these forms of sweeping debt relief, 90 to 95 percent of the potential clients who come to us do.

At Elkins & Elkins, our attorneys are dedicated to helping clients end creditor harassment, protect their most important assets and get back on track.

Our creditor harassment lawyers serving Central Florida communities will treat you with respect, advise you with integrity, and help you make the best decisions possible for your family and future.
Stopping Creditor Harassment
As soon as you file for bankruptcy, a legal mechanism known as the automatic stay goes into effect. The automatic stay prevents creditors from contacting you in any way unless they obtain the approval of the bankruptcy court. This means that collection calls, judgments, garnishments of your wages, repossession efforts and all other actions against you must cease immediately, and cannot resume until your case has reached its conclusion.
How Can Bankruptcy Help Me?
The U.S. Bankruptcy Code is in place so that people can eliminate overwhelming debt and return to stability and productivity. For hundreds of years now, it has been an essential component of our economy and has allowed financially distressed individuals to gain benefits such as:
- A complete, legally enforceable discharge (elimination) of most or all unsecured debts such as credit card balances
- The ability to keep most or all of your essential assets, typically including your home, retirement savings in qualified accounts, basic automobiles and household property
We will help you complete the bankruptcy means test and determine whether you are eligible to file bankruptcy.
