Save your home from foreclosure. Stop car repos and wage garnishments. Improve your credit scores and future buying power. All of these things are possible when filing bankruptcy. Read client reviews and  “success stories” below, including debt problems and solutions that may be similar to your situation.


COVID-19 Debt Problem: Client that was supposed to meet with us toward the end of March.  Then COVID-19 hit Wisconsin pretty hard.  She still wanted to file her case, but didn’t want to meet in person. In addition, the courts still required us to make sure we had reviewed the paperwork and obtained signatures that we needed to file.

The Debt Solution: Our firm was able to look into multiple video options for video conferencing, as well as phone conferencing.  This enabled me to meet with her over video, and mail her the documents to sign.  In turn the court now uses video, and phone for all of the bankruptcy hearings and 341 meetings.  We were able to calm her fears of the virus as well as get her case filed for her in a timely fashion.


Foreclosure Debt Problem:  Client by the name of Sharon owned a home in Madison, WI.  She fell behind over 2 years behind on her property taxes on her home.  The City was about to seize her home, and was going to sell it.  She started working again, and needed to save her house.

The Debt Solution:  Sharon came in to Debt Advisors, and through many tears told us her story.  We were able to work with her quickly to resolve the situation.  The City was contacted and verified that the property was not yet sold or seized.  Chapter 13 bankruptcy was filed for her. A Chapter 13 allows for the city to be paid back property tax arrears through a payment plan. The City agreed to file the claim, and allowed my client to keep her house.


Auto Accident Debt Problem:  On his way to work, the client lost control of his vehicle due to icy roads and got into a car accident.  As a result of the accident, the client incurred a $20,000 accident judgment.  The Department of Motor Vehicles subsequently suspended the client’s license because of the accident judgment.  The client had little means to get to work and make a living.

The Debt Solution:  Debt Advisors filed an emergency Chapter 7 bankruptcy which wiped out the $20,000 accident judgment.  The suspension on the client’s license was revoked and the client was able to resume his commute to his employment.


Mortgage Debt Problem:  The clients owed two mortgages on their residence.  The second mortgage was completely under water with a high interest rate.  The clients also did not have the disposable income in order to afford their monthly mortgage payments for their second mortgage payments along with all of the rest of their unsecured debt. Actions prevented home foreclosure.

The Debt Solution:  After a free consultation, the clients decided to file a chapter 13 bankruptcy with a lawyer from Debt Advisors.  Through their chapter 13 bankruptcy, the clients were able to strip the lien on their second mortgage.  The clients’ second mortgage ended up being wiped out at the end of their chapter 13 bankruptcy with only a nominal amount of payments made to their second mortgage company through their chapter 13 plan.  The clients were also able to pay off the rest of their debt on cents on the dollar through easily managed monthly payments in their chapter 13 bankruptcy.


Car Repo Debt Problem:   Single mom with 2 kids had her car repossessed because she was laid-off from work and fell behind on her car payments.  She had been called back to work in Waukesha County a few days before the car was repossessed.  She needed her car to travel to-and-from work. Quick action got car repo back.

The Debt Solution:  She met with an experienced attorney at Debt Advisors Law Offices.  We advised her to file an emergency chapter 13 petition to compel the creditor to return the car repo to her.  We filed the bankruptcy petition and her car was returned 3 days later. She is now able to get to work, her car is safe and she is on the road to financial security.


Credit Card Debt Problem:  Bob was in debt due mostly to personal credit cards.  In addition, he owed in back taxes from years prior.  Creditors and collection agencies had been consistent with their calls and attempts to collect from Bob, but he was not able to pay.  To make it worse, the IRS recently began garnishing wages.

The Debt Solution:  A Chapter 7 bankruptcy was filed for Bob, and the IRS was contacted on his behalf.  These actions immediately cleared credit card debts and even the back taxes.  Wage garnishments ceased, and Bob was finally debt free with a more optimistic financial future


Mortgage Payment Debt Problem: Clients were underwater on their property which was secured by three mortgages. They were failing to keep up with payments on the mortgages and also maintain their home. The house was in disrepair and needed substantial upkeep. They were in danger of losing their home.

The Debt Solution:  A Chapter 13 bankruptcy was filed to deal with all three mortgages, proposing to pay off behind payments on the first two mortgages.  Then we filed a lawsuit against the third mortgage company within the bankruptcy to avoid that mortgage. After a contested trial, the Judge ruled in our favor.   If the clients successfully complete their Chapter 13, they will not have to pay the 3rd mortgage which will be discharged along with their other debts. They will also be current on the 1st and 2nd mortgages.

  • 5 star review  Mike Georg was extremely helpful during the entirety of my process. He made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen and he was always there to answer any questions I may have had. I really like the fact that I didn’t have to pay all out of pocket at once. Their payment plan made it easy for me to pay what I had to without breaking the bank. I’m completely satisfied with the level of professionalism that everyone in the office has. Even to this day I’m able to get in touch with them which I’m really grateful for. I’d definitely recommend them to my family and friends. If your someone who’s looking to get out of debt but are skeptical, you’ll have no worries here with Debt Advisors. The process is quick and easy.

  • 5 star review  I still remember the day when I started my bankruptcy back in 2016. I selected Debt Advisors because a good friend of mine had recommended Atty Mike Georg to me. After we met I was glad that I did select Debt Advisors for many reasons. Mainly, it was the professionalism and care that Mike and his staff showed me throughout the entire process. It felt good knowing that my situation would be taken care of efficiently and in a timely manner. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged Attorney Mike Georg and Debt Advisors have been there for me in 2018 and this 2020. Both times I've needed professional help with things like providing me with documents and forms that I've needed from my case. I strongly encourage anyone looking for debt consultation to visit Debt Advisors for help. They're great at what they do!

  • 5 star review  Bankruptcy is never fun, but this Law Office made it so much easier. If I ever had any questions at all they were answered timely. They even helped me through a rough time when I ended up having to pay taxes and had a big medical exspense too! They were always kind and never made me feel bad for having to do the bankruptcy. They were sympathetic to why and just helped me through it! I recommend them to anyone I know going through this or having to start this process. I know of two of the people I referred who used htem and loved them too! Thank you Debt Advisors Law Offices! Jeremy and Angel thank you personally!

  • 5 star review  I can confidently say that Debt Advisors is NOT in the business of taking advantage of you in your current situation. Debt Advisors is in the business of helping you get in a better place than you are now. I was there, constantly worrying about this large amount of debt that I owed. Feeling sick to my stomach and unable to sleep at night. Then I talked to Mike. He is genuine and honest. Having him in my corner took this huge weight off my chest. If you are in this place, I highly recommend giving Debt Advisors a call, it is the first step in the right direction.
