GA residents continue to suffer as unemployment rates stay high

depressed woman covering face with hands

In a recent blog post, we discussed the troubling unemployment rate in Georgia. Readers should be aware that this state’s jobless rate of 8.1 percent is the highest in the country, even though statistics suggest that the state is also experiencing job growth.

This has created a confusing dynamic for people all across the state; not everyone is experiencing the crushing reality of unemployment. But the fact remains: Residents across Georgia are struggling with joblessness more than anyone else, and this is contributing to a significant financial crisis for many people.

Even though certain areas of the state are seeing new businesses open and construction projects underway, it is not happening everywhere. In some areas, businesses are closing down or staying vacant.

This has only made a very difficult situation for residents in these areas even worse. Without job retention or creation, people are struggling or failing to make ends meet. Those who do have jobs are only earning a median household income of about $25,000. This is simply not enough for people to keep their heads above water, especially when unexpected expenses like medical bills arise.

While the statistics and numbers game continue to be an important political platform in the upcoming elections, the fact is that right now, families across Georgia are stretched beyond their means. People are buried in credit card debt, losing their homes in foreclosure and unable to pay their bills.

Rather than try to ignore the situation or wait for change to play out in the political environment, people can take control of their situation by reaching out for help. Debt relief solutions including bankruptcy can be quite effective and are available to people who seek them out. Discussing your individual circumstances and goals with an attorney can help people take steps toward a better financial future.

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.
