Benefits of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

  • Ending Creditor Harassment

What to Expect from the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Process

Unlike Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is executed over three to five years, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process can be completed in a matter of 4-6 months. This includes participating in a pre-bankruptcy credit counseling course, filling out all of the necessary paperwork, filing your petition with the court, and attending the "creditors meeting". Once your bankruptcy has been resolved, you will be legally absolved of the obligation to repay most, if not all, of your debt.

As your financial stability is on the line, I understand how urgent this process may be for you. That is why I am available to meet with you in the evening or on the weekend, in addition to regular business hours. I am focused on making this experience as convenient and painless as possible for you.

Client Testimonials

  • Utmost dedication and professionalism.

    “I chose to work with Tom Hensel after meeting with several big name firms in the area. Tom handled my unique situation with the utmost dedication and professionalism. The personal service I received from him made all the difference in my case. My only regret is that I didn't call him first.”

    Craig

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”

He always kept in touch with me and explained everything in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend Mr. Hensel to anyone who is facing any bankruptcy filing. He is respectful and down to earth with his approach to very complicated legal matters.”

I was very impressed that you returned every phone call in a timely manner. You were able to explain exactly what was going to happen in words that "we" could understand. You answered every question we threw at you. The whole bankruptcy process from start to finish was complete in the time you told us it would take. Your professionalism yet friendliness made the whole experience for us almost enjoyable... almost! We have and will continue to recommend you to others in need of a fresh start.”
