Experienced Bankruptcy Services for Consumers and for Businesses

In these times, many individuals and businesses find themselves facing more debt than they can manage. Sometimes, a business or individual only needs more time to work out their problems without the threat of lawsuits, garnishments, repossessions or foreclosures. Clients need lasting solutions, tailored to the clients' needs, to find a new beginning.

We are proud to have Attorney Todd Boudreaux who is the only lawyer in this area who is a certified specialist in both commercial and business bankruptcy law. Our specialization and experience in bankruptcy allows us help clients with the following aspects of bankruptcy:

Consumer Bankruptcy

  • Should I file for bankruptcy?: We will analyze your income, expenses, debts, properties and assets, giving you detailed consultation regarding whether bankruptcy is the right choice for you. Many clients prefer to pursue non-bankruptcy options. If non-bankruptcy options are available, we will assist you in pursuing those options, rather than assuming that every client needs to file bankruptcy to resolve their financial issues.
  • Preparing to file bankruptcy: We will help you gather the necessary documents like credit reports, paycheck stubs and tax returns, then we will compile and prepare the documents for filing with the bankruptcy courts.
