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, Wigfield, Heyer & Stevens, 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.

Good Advice from a Bankruptcy Attorney in These Difficult Times Can Help Clear Your Debt

We help individuals and businesses get a fresh start from overwhelming debt obligations. Bankruptcy may or may not be the best option and our New Jersey Lawyers will take the time and advise you if bankruptcy is right for your situation. An attorney in our office will take the time to explain to you the differences between Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and the best option for you. Sometimes it is better to avoid bankruptcy and settle with creditors out of court. New Jersey also has an alternative to bankruptcy for businesses called an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors and our law firm will go over this option if it fits as a potential strategy for your business. Correct advice from the get go is the most important factor in leading to a successful bankruptcy or out of court settlement with creditors.

Contact a Knowledgeable New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer

Our law firm has a team of experienced attorneys dedicated to helping injured persons solve their legal problems.  Many of our clients that we help have suffered serious and catastrophic injuries in motor vehicle accidents (including truck and bus accidents, motorcycle accidents and pedestrian and bicycle accidents), construction accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and dog bite incidents.

We take a team approach in trying to help clients through their problems and use the best computer case-management technology available. Choosing a law firm with strong lawyers willing to fight for you is essential 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 so that juries really understand your problems and what you have gone through. We utilize a team approach with commitment of the resources, attorneys, paralegals, technology and investigators necessary. Our lawyers were some of the first in the State to use Smart Board technology in the court room.

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.

Call our Wayne or Hoboken, New Jersey offices located in Passaic County and Hudson County for a free consultation. With our personal injury cases, we handle them on a contingency fee basis and if there is no recovery there is no fee.

Our attorneys understand how important it is to handle your personal legal matter confidentially, while focusing on always striving on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome.
