We review your objectives
Financial Fresh Start.
Our Chicago bankruptcy lawyers can help you eliminate many debts. After your debt is forgiven you can now apply for new loans and credit cards. We can’t predict what any particular lenders credit requirements but most of our clients beginning receiving offers for credit cards and vehicles shortly after filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy. While your bankruptcy filing will remain on your credit history report for 10 years, you can generally get credit again after filing. Many lenders will consider you for a home loan 2 years after filing.
Increase your cash flow
Increasing your cash flow may help you to better meet your normal living expenses. Since you are not sending hundreds of dollars to wall street every month you have more money available for necessary things like housing, car payments, utilities, prescriptions, food and things for your children.
Stopping the harassment.
When a Chicago Bankruptcy Lawyer files a chapter 7 bankruptcy or chapter 13 bankruptcy case they usually receive immediate protection from creditors through a special court order known as the bankruptcy automatic stay. This means creditors must stop collection efforts.
Prevent repossession or foreclosure.
If you are behind on payments your lender may try to take your car or foreclose on your home. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be your best option to prevent a repossession or foreclosure. A Chicago Bankruptcy Lawyer can file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy for you. This will allow you to catch up on your car loan and give you three to five years to pay off your loan. Filing a chapter 13 will stop a foreclosure as long as a sale has not taken place. After filing you make your current monthly mortgage payment and the arrears (the amount you are behind) can be spread out over 3 to 5 years.

Chicago Bankruptcy Lawyer
I really wish I could give him 100 stars. Never have I met an attorney so dedicated so patient so kind and also efficient. He knows his stuff that is for sure. He is reasonable on his rates. Each and every time I have reached out to him he has made it his business to contact me the same day. By email and phone he and his office is accessible. I recommend him 1000 percent
I contacted Gleason and Gleason Law Office, after my husband passed away because I had no choice but to file Bankruptcy. They do not charge you an arm and a leg and they do everything and will let you know in advance what the procedure is and if you will have complications. I was treated with much respect and the Bankruptcy went smoothly. A couple weeks after the bankruptcy discharged I found myself in another situation. Mr. Troy and Mrs. Julie Gleason, took my hand and walked me through with ease. I was not charged for the extra wok they did for me, which took a few months. These are the type of Attorneys that make up for the ones out here bad. I would recommend this Law Firm, in a heart beat, to do your Bankruptcy anytime. They do not stop helping you just because the Bankruptcy discharges. I wish they practiced other areas of the Law, but I assure you, they will recommend someone credible for you. They have my utmost respect and confidence. Troy and Julie, you rock. Thank you for being human... God Bless
Mr. Troy Gleason, is helpful, provides clarity and walks you through the process and what to expect, he's very patient as well. Especially for the delayed learner. The location on Western provides parking. He's also easliy reachable via phone once your a client. His team which works downtown and in bankruptcy court is polished and professional. I totally recommend Mr. Gleason.
Mr. Gleason went above and beyond to help me and my husband feel educated about our options. Our case was handled with ease and I am so glad we chose Gleason and Gleason!
Great attorneys and people.
