Palm Beach Bankruptcy Lawyer

Need assistance in filing for bankruptcy?

There are countless individuals and families throughout the state of Florida, and in Palm Beach particularly, that are suffering severe financial stress. The economic downturn has hit our area hard, and many were caught in the subprime mortgage bubble and now face the repercussions of a bad real estate investment, higher mortgage payments, or job loss. Others run into financial difficulty due to a divorce or when a serious medical emergency has led to astronomical bills that they cannot hope to pay. Our experience leads us to understand that bad things can happen to honest, hardworking people. When a financial situation and debts are completely out of control, it is likely that taking the opportunity to file bankruptcy could be a good solution that will bring you the relief you need.

Bankruptcy is an opportunity offered under federal law that allows individuals and families under crushing debt to get a fresh financial start. When it becomes apparent that your debt load is completely unmanageable and that you have no hope of getting it under control, we advise you to contact the Law Offices of Carol D. Ellis.
