Providing Steadfast, Compassionate Legal Guidance Every Step of the Way
Bankruptcy is a tool available to businesses and to individuals who find they cannot pay their debts as they come due. In some cases the debts need to be canceled entirely, in other situations it is more appropriate to reorganize one's financial affairs. Michael Fallon, a State of California Board Certified Legal Specialist in Bankruptcy who has been practicing Bankruptcy Law since 1979, can help you decide the relief that is best suited for you.

What Bankruptcy Can Do For You
The relief you will get from bankruptcy will depend on the relief that you need, but in general you may expect that immediately upon filing a petition in Bankruptcy
- Creditor telephone calls and harassing letters will stop
- If you have been sued, the lawsuit will stop
- If your wages are being attached, the attachment will stop
- If your home is in foreclosure, the foreclosure will stop.
If your objective is to have your debts canceled through the bankruptcy process, and if you are eligible for such relief, you may expect that at the end of your case you will forever be free of the debt that is troubling you. You may find that you have several objectives. You may want to save your home from foreclosure by proposing a plan to bring the defaulted mortgage current. At the same time you may want to have your credit card debt and unpaid medical bills canceled. In certain circumstances it may be possible to meet both objectives.

Your Bankruptcy Options
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the relief available when you need your debts to be canceled.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is available to corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and certain high-income earners that are looking to reorganize their financial affairs.
Chapter 12 Bankruptcy is for farmers that need to restructure their debt.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is available for individuals facing foreclosure who would like to save their home. It is also a tool for the small business owner who wants to keep the business going. It is available to individuals that might not be eligible for relief under chapter 7.
The most commonly filed bankruptcy is chapter 7 with chapter 13 a close second. When you meet with Michael Fallon he will discuss your options and help you decide what is best for you. Keep in mind, however, after reviewing your case Mr. Fallon may conclude that bankruptcy is not the best way for you to proceed. In that case he may refer you to Consumer Credit Counselors and there would be no charge for your initial meeting with Mr. Fallon.
