Strategic Representation for Bankruptcy

The stress of out-of-control debt can rapidly take over your life. The uncertainty of your financial future often can be compounded by threatening creditors who may make you feel you have lost your rights and are out of options. However, nothing could be further from the truth! The bankruptcy code was enacted to protect debtors' rights and provide a legal means to address financial obligations.

At the Law Offices of Janet L. Mertes, we offer the strategic representation you need to seek debt relief through bankruptcy. Our experienced Ventura bankruptcy lawyer can assess your circumstances and help you decide if declaring either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 would be right for you.

Petitioning for bankruptcy can provide financial breathing room by:

  • Halting creditor harassment
  • Stopping wage garnishments and bank levies
  • Postponing or preventing foreclosure of your home or vehicle repossession
