There were more than 1.2 million bankruptcy cases filed in 2012, and millions more Americans are facing mounting debt problems. The prospect of bankruptcy is overwhelming to many of the clients we work with. The process is complex and often requires a skilled attorney in order to achieve the best outcome.

It’s estimated that approximately 50 percent of American adults do not currently have a will in place. Without a will or a trust in place, your personal belongings and assets will most likely not be divided the way that you would prefer. In fact, parents of minor children who die without a will could put their kids into the unfortunate position of being raised by a family member not of their choosing, or even placed in foster care. Therefore, we highly encourage everyone to take proactive steps as soon as possible to protect their family.

In these situations, emotions typically run very high, making it difficult for both parties to come to an amicable agreement.
