Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Regain Financial Stability by Filing for Bankruptcy Protection From Your Creditors

Stop Sign Stop Harassing Phone Calls
Stop Mortgage Foreclosure
Stop Repossessions
Stop Utility Shutoffs

Bankruptcy is a federal law designed to protect consumers from their creditors’ collection activity. Filing for Bankruptcy will immediately STOP the phone calls, threatening letters and other ways, both legal and illegal, creditors attempt to collect debts. If you are constantly being bothered by harassing phone calls at home or at work, or if you are worried about losing your home or your property to your creditors, then filing for Bankruptcy will help you get a fresh start.

There are 2 types of Consumer Bankruptcy available to individuals in Pennsylvania, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common type of bankruptcy filed and is sometimes known as a “liquidation bankruptcy”. Chapter 7 totally wipes out all of your unsecured debt, such as credit cards, medical bills, repossession debts and unsecured loans. You will not have to pay any of your debt back, you will not lose property and in approximately 6 months, your debt is wiped out so you can start fresh.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a repayment bankruptcy in which consumer are required to repay some or all of their debt, depending on their situation. It is most commonly used to stop mortgage foreclosures and become current on mortgage arrears so that the home does not get sold at a Sheriff Sale.

Both types of Bankruptcy protect you from collection activity from creditors, such as harassing phone calls, lawsuits, sheriff sales and other collection activity.

The absolute best for Bankruptcy

Anthony M.

I have called upon the services of Ellis B. Klein twice, once for a speeding ticket and most recently for my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case. Both times were very good experiences. Regarding the bankruptcy, the whole process was very straightforward and simple. Ellis and his team are very knowledgeable addressing any questions or concerns I had making me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Ellis to anyone seeking top of the line legal assistance! I am glad that I filed for Bankruptcy as my debts have been wiped out and I can now go about rebuilding my credit and my life.

Client Reviews
Ellis Klein is a terrific attorney who represented my son in a DUI case. Ellis was understanding and sympathetic yet very forthright regarding the seriousness of the issue. He was extremely knowledgeable of the process and kept us informed at every step. He had a very professional presence, was confident (but not arrogant) and kept us calm throughout a very traumatic situation. He was a critical factor in my son receiving the best possible outcome from this DUI event. John Doe
Recently Mr. Klein helped me out with a criminal charge in which the outcome was the best possible situation for me. Ellis worked with me as far as a payment plan, knew the judge and officer and I couldn't ask for anything more out of a lawyer. I'm very happy with his performance and would recommend him to anyone.

Ellis literally gave me a new lease on life. I was facing a DUI, which would have affected my livelihood, my freedom and would have left me with a criminal record. Mr. Klein was able to have all the evidence suppressed by challenging the officer's cause for pulling me over. He was very thorough, leaving no stone unturned. His demeanor in court was confident and knowledgeable. He saved my reputation and my family from facing serious economic hardship. Thank You Anonymous
Ellis Klein served as my lawyer in a very difficult case that I was facing and with his help, the outcome of my case turned out wonderful. Mr. Klein helped me very much with his knowledge of my case. Thanks Ellis! Anonymous
Like many young adults, I made a bad decision that resulted in very serious consequences. I was afraid and nervous. Ellis was very straight-forward when he explained things to me, telling what the best outcome could be as well as the worst. Through his knowledge, professionalism, and legal reputation, my case was resolved with the best possible outcome. I advise my friends not to make the same mistake that I did, but if they do I will highly recommend Ellis. I feel like I have been given a second chance. Anonymous
