Bankruptcy allows individuals, burdened by overwhelming debt, to obtain a fresh start and wipe out debt. One of our firm's primary practice areas is representing clients in bankruptcy cases in Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 under the Bankruptcy Code.
Chapter 7 can provide a way to wipe out or discharge all unsecured debt, such as credit cards, medical bills and personal loans, and still keep exempt assets. Visit our comprehensive Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Information Center for an in depth analysis of your rights. Talk to a New Jersey bankruptcy lawyer at Scura, Mealey, Wigfield & Heyer, LLP.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can provide a way to save a home from foreclosure or provide a way to pay back a portion of debt and back-due mortgage payments over a 60 month or five year plan. You may also be eligible for a favorable loan modification. Visit our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Information section for various strategies and plans. Chapter 11 is a reorganization chapter for businesses to obtain some breathing room and pay back their creditors under more favorable terms. Review our web pages on bankruptcy topics, including many articles on bankruptcy-specific topics, for a more detailed discussion on different forms of bankruptcy.

We have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements in difficult personal injury cases using the best computer case-management technology available. Choosing a law firm with strong lawyers willing to fight for you is essential in maximizing your recovery as insurance companies will try to take advantage and pay as little as possible.
If trial is essential, our firm uses cutting edge technology to better present your case to juries and obtain the best damage awards. We utilize a team approach with commitment of the resources, attorneys, paralegals, technology and investigators necessary to prosecute your personal injury claim. Our lawyers were some of the first in the State to use Smart Board technology in the court room to make powerful presentations to juries in various cases.
Our lawyers understand that the best way to present your case to juries is in an auditory-visual manner, appealing to both sight and sound of jurors. The old world of lawyers just droning on and on to juries and judges has passed and effective persuasion using today's technological tools available is the only way to win personal injury cases in the way they should be won. Before you pick an attorney, make sure the attorney is willing to go to trial and has the support and staffing readily available if insurance companies are unwilling to pay fair money.
