FLORIDA BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY

The Role of Bankruptcy in Foreclosure Defense

The Bankruptcy code is an important tool against any collections acts.  Bankruptcy is helpful when dealing in foreclosure or debt related cases.   Bankruptcy can be used as your main strategy or as your last resort.   The filing of a bankruptcy petition automatically freezes the foreclosure sale in most cases and buys you some breathing room.  Bankruptcy can be used to eliminate or “discharge debt,” avoid liens on your property; reorganize your debts or both.  Bankruptcy petitions are also helpful when dealing with wage garnishments.   The bankruptcy system is set up to give you a fair shot at saving your home, your salary, or to give you a “fresh start” if you can’t.

By working with a Florida bankruptcy attorney, you can utilize this powerful tool to your advantage if you are facing foreclosure or debt related cases. At Pullen Law Office, LLC, we are experienced in dealing with bankruptcy as a foreclosure defense. We have the knowledge and the resources necessary to help. We help clients throughout Florida from our office in Orlando. Metrowest, Orlando, Clermont, Winter Springs, Winter Park, Sanford, Oakland, Winter Garden, Windermere, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, and Apopka. Some of the specific counties we serve include Orange, Lake, Seminole, and Osceola County.

Despite all the government and media hype, voluntary loan modifications occur only about 8% of the time. That number increases fourfold if there is litigation or bankruptcy. Hiring a lawyer to review your options and handle the process makes sense. A lawyer can help you gain leverage. A foreclosure relief company or real estate agent is unqualified to provide you with any of this legal insight – but a licensed Florida attorney at the Pullen Law Office, LLC has the knowledge and experience to help.
