Should You Consider Bankruptcy? Our Georgia Bankruptcy Lawyers Can Help You Decide.

If you are unsure whether you should file bankruptcy, consider some of the benefits:

  • Any personal bankruptcy filing, whether a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 proceeding, will immediately stop all letters, calls and legal proceedings against you and will help you reestablish your credit.
  • Unsecured debts, such as credit card bills and medical expenses, can be permanently ended with a discharge in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Don’t be taken in by incorrect information about bankruptcy that you will see in print, on television and on the Internet. We will take the time to carefully explain the advantages of a personal bankruptcy filing so that you can make a good decision about your financial situation.

Common Myths About Bankruptcy

Many people choose not to file bankruptcy because they have been given inaccurate information about the process. The following are some common myths about bankruptcy.

  • I will have to start over with nothing: False. Under Georgia law, many assets are exempt for purposes of Chapter 7, which means that many people are able to file bankruptcy without losing any property at all.
  • I will never be able to get credit again: False. There are positive steps you can take to rebuild your credit after the conclusion of your bankruptcy case.
  • Debt consolidation is a better option: False. Debt consolidation companies do not have high success rates and end up making your credit worse. Bankruptcy is a faster, longer-lasting form of debt relief.

If you are unsure about bankruptcy, just ask an experienced attorney. Bankruptcy is one area of the law that is there to protect you. At our firm, we are here to help you. You may find out that things you have been told in the past are not correct.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Julie T.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
