Ultimately, bankruptcy is a helpful tool for millions of people. It offers powerful protections for consumers who struggle with debt. Protections involve issues associated with excessive debt. Prevent home foreclosure or repossession proceedings, stop creditor harassment or wage garnishments, and more.
Everyone deserves a chance for a fresh start. At Debt Advisors Law Offices, we pride ourselves in making the bankruptcy process easy. We have helped thousands of Wisconsin families eliminate debt completely! Take advantage of our solid advice and expertise in this area.
There are two main types of consumer bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of them; commonly called “liquidation” bankruptcy. You’ll need to pass a “means test” to file Chapter 7. A bankruptcy attorney will coach you through this step. In addition, there are income levels and other requirements which need to be met in order to qualify for this type of bankruptcy. However, ch.7 bankruptcy is quick. Another wonderful thing about chapter 7 is that it will discharge most of your unsecured debt. This means that you could potentially eliminate all debt.
Chapter 13 is another common type of bankruptcy. This option is often referred to as “debt restructuring and repayment.” Your bankruptcy attorney will work with banks and other creditors for a repayment plan that is more reasonable. Over several years, you’ll pay back a portion of your debt. But, most people are surprised at how well Debt Advisors can work to bring down the debt to a more reasonable amount. These negotiations will end in a plan that clearly benefits you and your family. Wisconsin also has a debt consolidation bankruptcy alternative which is referred to as Wisconsin Chapter 128. This option is not federal bankruptcy; instead, it’s a program offered by the State of Wisconsin.

Life happens, and sometimes it is unfair. People who seek bankruptcy advice and eventually file bankruptcy are not bad people. On the contrary, people who look for solutions to their problems are brave and honorable. Once you realize this, it should be easier to take that first step.

Our focus at Debt Advisors is bankruptcy and the bankruptcy process. We want to set the record straight regarding the truth about bankruptcy and why so many find it life-changing. On that thought, there are many things your attorney will want to talk about and navigate through while considering bankruptcy.

My experience with Debt Advisors was truly a blessing in disguise. My wife and I were truly elated to be a part of a first time home buyer program with a well known state agency. This however turned out to be a nightmare We were one of the many who, during the Bush years ended up getting locked into a merciless ,ever increasing mortgage that was supposed to have a fixed rate. After countless attempts to try for modification or refinancing we soon found out the state agency didn't allow for such recourse. We felt the weight of the world was on our shoulders. That was when we decided to try Debt Advisors. Their attorneys were very knowledgeable and assuring. They were a great help in lifting what was a grievous burden. I would recommend their services to anyone.
I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy at Debt Advisors with Attorney Janice Nabke and the entire experience was nowhere near as stressful as I was worried about thanks to Janice who was very caring and dedicated to doing everything she could to make the whole process as simple as possible. Janice is very experienced with Bankruptcy cases and knew every correct step to take and was very detailed in explaining everything that I needed to prepare for and what to expect from beginning to end but what really stood out to me was how nice she was with a great personality so I would like to thank her for all of the hard work she put fourth and would highly recommend her to anybody seeking bankruptcy assistance. I would like to make special mention to Holly Mclure Larson who helped me out more than I could possibly imagine and went far above and beyond my highest hopes and expectations after I was still facing harassment and threats from a VERY aggressive Collection Agency trying to collect on the discharged debt and due to the very gracious help from Holly who is FANTASTIC I feel so much better and cannot thank her and the entire team at Debt Advisors enough.
Debt Advisors is a wonderful company and I highly recommend them. Attorney Mike Georg has been so easy to work with and extremely helpful and kind throughout the process. Other amazingly helpful and caring staff I worked with were Holly, Julie and Jess. Thank you all!
Awesome services, I went there feeling impending doom, and left with certainty that someone cares. Michael Georg was friendly and helpful informing me on what is best for my family.
My experience with Debt Advisors was wonderful, Michael Georg and his staff are very respectful, helpful and knowledgeable about the steps that need to be taken in your case. My case was simple but challenging for me but they made sure that I didn’t panic and they were able to resolve my case in a very quick and timely manner. I appreciate the time and consideration that they took with my case. Would highly recommend

I had an awesome experience with the entire team at Debt Advisors(D.A.). They made a very stressful and complicated situation very easy. When going into this I thought this process was going to be very long and stressful as I did not know what to fully expect. From my very first meeting to my last I had nothing but an easy and pleasant process. Every one was so knowledgeable and helpful! I could not have asked for a better team to assist me in my time of need. Sending a very big Thank you to all the staff at D.A. you guys are amazing.
Debt Advisors Law Offices rock! I went into bankruptcy not knowing what to expect but Mr. Pietrek who represented me put my mind at ease. Mr. Pietrek answered all of my question in-person and on the phone. I never felt uncomfortable or embarrassed. The amount of money I had to pay was like half the amount I would have had to pay going through ay other firm. If for some reason I had to go through bankruptcy again there would be no one else I would use. Good people good prices great services.
I am so grateful for the Debit Advisors in assisting me to get my life back on track. I have great respect for them. Debit Advisors has integrity! I was in a very difficult situation and they guided me through. They were honest with me about what I could and could not do, what is allowable and not allowable, they got bill collectors off my back and they replied back to me in a timely manner when I had questions. As long as I did my part in the process, they more than did their part.
