Welcome to the website landing page for the Markwell Law, LLC, a St. Charles Bankruptcy Attorney. We assist people contemplating Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I can help you overcome the debt, and gain that fresh start you’ve been looking for.
Bankruptcy is not for everybody, and the option should not be taken lightly. Bankruptcy is the process of altering the rights of your creditors, and is a federal proceeding, overseen by the Federal Bankruptcy Court in St. Louis. For those who do qualify for relief under the Bankruptcy Code, filing can provide a much needed fresh start, allowing you relief from most of your unsecured debt. Alternatively, in a Chapter 13, protection afforded by the Federal law also allows one to reorganize debt, allowing them a manageable time to pay back what they owe to their creditors.
The decision to seek help in bankruptcy is not an easy one to make. Neither is the decision to grab the last life vest in a sinking boat. The considerations between the two are very similar though; If you do not need it, done, but if you need it to survive, then by all means do so. It must be a good fit. Need help deciding? If so, I encourage you to learn as much as you possibly can about the law, the process, and most importantly, what the result would be in your case if you did file. Read everything you can, become educated. Talk to a bankruptcy attorney in St. Charles. Gather as many opposing viewpoints as you can, and make the right decision.
