Student Loans In Bankruptcy

You may now discharge student loans in bankruptcy. As most of you reading this know, you can’t discharge these in bankruptcy unless you can prove that repaying them would cause you a major hardship.  In the past, that hardship was extremely difficult to prove, so hardship discharges for student loans in bankruptcies were rare. The […]

Personal Injury & Dislike Of Medical Treatments

Do you have a personal injury, but also have a dislike of medical treatments or doctors?  You’re not alone, and for good reason!  Medical treatments can be painful and otherwise unpleasant, and prescription drugs and treatment drugs like cortisone may have bad side effects.  It also takes time and effort to go to the doctor, […]

Demand Adequate Medical Services!

Demand adequate medical services!  Many of my clients have to fight for the medical services they need.  Unfortunately, in this area we have more of a financial system than a medical system, and medical service providers don’t like providing expensive services.  For example, one client fell and seriously injured his knee.  His knee was X-rayed, […]

Negotiating With A Creditor

Are you negotiating with a creditor to try to lower your debt?  Some people do this because they can’t or don’t want to file bankruptcy.  However, negotiating yourself without an attorney can cost you a lot more money than an attorney would cost. A current client who I’ll call Barb (not her real name) wanted […]

For A Personal Injury, Tell Your Doctor Everything!

For a personal injury, be sure to tell your doctor everything after you are injured.  Don’t fail to mention any aches or pains, or any other injuries.  This is not the time to be macho or stoic.  Not only is this necessary so you can get adequate medical care, but it’s also necessary in order […]

Bankruptcy To Prevent Foreclosure

You can file bankruptcy to prevent foreclosure.  Don’t wait to get help to save your house.  Waiting until the last second could prevent you from getting the help you need. I got a call on a Friday afternoon from a person facing foreclosure the following Tuesday.  While it was still possible to file a chapter […]

Pending Personal Injury Matter & Medical Bills

If you have a pending personal injury matter, your medical bills can start piling up.  Medical insurance plans have policy limits, and your policy may leave certain expenses unpaid or only partially paid.  While your medical expenses are part of what you are entitled to recover in a successful personal injury claim, you won’t get […]

Crashing Economy

Are you concerned that the crashing economy will put you in a position where you can’t pay your bills and end up with debts you can’t pay?  Things are starting to look rather treacherous economically.  Banks are collapsing, tech companies are laying off tens of thousands of workers, and even those with jobs are unable […]

Adequate Insurance

Do you have adequate insurance to cover an uninsured or under-insured driver who wrongfully injures you in an accident?  (This is called UIM coverage.)  This is how it works: If you get into an auto accident and the other driver is at fault, you are entitled to be compensated for all of your damages.  By […]
