Bankruptcy Precursors

Michigan Bankruptcy Attorney

There are many factors that can affect a person's financial stability. Some financial problems develop over time, such as the use of too many high-interest credit cards or not sticking to a budget. A financial crisis can also occur unexpectedly when a person loses their job or is faced with a medical emergency. Even a divorce can bring about cash flow issues that result in unpaid bills. When you accumulate too many debts and can no longer meet your expenses, it is easy to become apathetic about the situation.

This almost always ends up making matters much worse, as creditors will step up their efforts to collect whatever money they are owed or to recover their property. Many people don't realize there are many ways to overcome a financial crunch, including debt negotiation, debt consolidation and filing for bankruptcy. If you live in Madison Heights, Royal Oak, Sterling Heights, Clinton Township, or Warren and are struggling financially, contact a Michigan bankruptcy lawyer for advice. The sooner you address your money woes, the faster you can get back on the right track.

Bankruptcy Debt Relief

My firm, Hensel Law Office, PLLC, represents clients in need of financial help. I provide individuals and families with legal advice on how to improve their financial condition and assist them in eliminating their debts. People from many different economic brackets have found that filing for bankruptcy, whether under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, is one of the most effective methods of changing their financial circumstances. Not everyone qualifies for this debt relief remedy, but those that do find that they are able to get out from under the mistakes of the past.

Once a bankruptcy petition is filed, an automatic stay will be issued that will stop:

  • Harassing phone calls, letters, and emails from creditors
  • Efforts to repossess your property
  • The garnishing of your wages
  • Home foreclosure

As a Michigan bankruptcy attorney, I offer a free consultation where all of your legal options can be explored and any questions you have regarding your finances fully answered. I provide my clients with personalized and attentive legal services and work with them directly to develop a plan that will get them out of debt.

Whether you live in Sterling Heights, Warren or another community within the state of Michigan, give us a call so we can begin assisting you!

Client Testimonials

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”

  • Mr. Hensel walked me through every step.

    “I would highly recommend the Hensel Law Office!! Mr. Hensel walked me through every step, got my garnishments stopped very quickly (even got garnished wages returned to me!) and told me what to expect along the way. He answered all of my questions in a very timely manner- no matter what time I sent an email or gave him a phone call. Also, I felt his price was very reasonable compared to some of the other places that I called. Mr. Hensel answered plenty of questions that I had before I even became a client.”
