At the Rappazzo & Bauscher, PLLC, we know there are a lot of lawyers to choose from.  While many claim to be experienced bankruptcy attorneys, it is important to do your homework and make your choice carefully.  

We are here to answer your questions, analyze your unique financial circumstances and recommend sound legal strategies to eliminate your debt.  Often, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers the best path to financial freedom for our clients.

Unlike other attorneys, we will never pressure you into filing for bankruptcy protection.  We may even determine you are not a good candidate upon review of your case and may recommend other options.

Most people have at least some wrong information about bankruptcy. Irrational fears often hold people back from utilizing this helpful process. We hope that by dispelling some of these myths, we can help you determine whether bankruptcy is the right course for you.
