Do not be ashamed or embarrassed by debt

It can seem like people share everything with the world these days. We only need to look at Facebook or Twitter to read about where people eat dinner, how much they like or dislike their job, difficulties they are having with their kids or how they are redecorating their bathroom. 

But one topic that we rarely read about or share with others is debt. People don’t like to talk about problems with debt; in fact, many people will go to great lengths to hide or ignore financial problems. In many cases, people do this because they don’t want others to think of them as financially irresponsible. But while you may not want to share your financial struggles with an entire social network, you may want to seriously consider discussing them with an attorney.

In an article on our website, we referenced a study that explored the root causes of mounting credit card bills. While many people assume that credit card debt is typically the result of overspending, irresponsible record-keeping or frivolous spending on a lavish lifestyle, the reality is that credit card debt is often the result of necessity, not choice.

It is not uncommon for people to run into financial troubles when they fall behind on student loan payments, lose a job or suffer from unexpected health problems and an accumulation of hospital bills. While they try to pay off these expenses, many people need to lean on credit cards and the cycle of spending and falling behind on payments continues.

This cycle can quickly become unmanageable. Some people try to ignore it or they suffer in silence as they battle each month to make some payments and keep the collectors at bay. 

But speaking up and asking for help from an attorney can provide people in this situation with a great sense of relief and support. There are a number of debt relief options available, including filing bankruptcy, which can effectively repay, reorganize or eradicate debt. While you probably shouldn’t discuss financial issues with everyone on social media, speaking with the right people can help you find the answers you need.

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.

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.
