Baltimore Bankruptcy Attorney

Helping Clients Make a Fresh Financial Start

The attorneys at Schlachman, Belsky & Weiner, P.A., in Baltimore, Maryland, represent clients in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. Our clients rely on our firm to handle their bankruptcy matters efficiently, and we build on our lawyers' many years of experience to accomplish our clients' goals.

Handling a bankruptcy proceeding often requires our attorneys to educate the client about the options available, the length of the process, and the exemptions that he or she may claim. Many clients are reluctant to file bankruptcy despite overwhelming debt, because they believe they will lose their homes and never be able to obtain credit again. Clients may have heard about bankruptcy reform and wonder if they are even eligible to obtain bankruptcy relief. Our Baltimore City bankruptcy lawyers explain the bankruptcy process and ramifications so that clients are confident they have made the right choice.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

This type of personal bankruptcy, sometimes known as a liquidation bankruptcy involves the client's debt being discharged. Not everyone is eligible for this type of bankruptcy. Our attorneys can determine whether a debtor is eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be eligible for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, sometimes called a reorganization bankruptcy. This form of bankruptcy reorganizes debt so that the individual can repay some or all of their debt over five years. After the bankruptcy period is over, the remaining debt is discharged.
