How Can You Protect Your Assets From Your Creditors?

If you have fallen behind on your debts and your creditors are threatening to send these debts to collection agencies, you may be worried about what will happen to the assets you have worked so hard to build up — your home, car, bank accounts, retirement accounts and other property.

Thankfully, the U.S. bankruptcy laws and Georgia’s homestead exemption law are on your side. At the law offices of Gingold & Gingold LLC, you can rely on our Atlanta bankruptcy attorneys to protect your assets while discharging (wiping out) some or all of your debts.

We have the experience to help you make the right decisions. Attorney Ira D. Gingold has been a bankruptcy lawyer since 1971 and Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971-2013, and Jamie L. Gingold has been practicing bankruptcy, real estate and business law since 2001.

Helping You Use State and Federal Laws to Your Advantage

If you have defaulted on your debts, your creditors may be able to sue you and get a judgment. Once this has happened, there are a number of things they can do to attach your assets. Depending on the specific facts of your situation, they may be able to:

  • Put a lien on your home
  • Foreclose on your home
  • Levy on your bank accounts
  • Garnish your paychecks
  • Repossess your vehicle

Filing bankruptcy protects your assets by putting an immediate stop to all these debt collection efforts. In addition, your experienced bankruptcy lawyer can make sure you are taking full advantage of Georgia’s homestead exemptions so you can keep all of your assets.

Despite their name, these homestead exemptions do not just apply to real estate. There are many types of exemptions your attorney can use to make sure your assets are protected.

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.
