In Portland Oregon, there are plenty of attorneys who practice bankruptcy, but there are very few who devote 100% of their practice to it. At the Law Firm of Hackett & Harris, they know about bankruptcy because bankruptcy is all they do.
Having counseled thousands of Oregon consumers about the process of bankruptcy they can easily determine when a bankruptcy filing will make good sense for a consumer, but more importantly they also know when it does not.
Ryan Hackett, a partner with the firm explains it this way…
At Hackett & Harris we offer free consultations to discuss people’s specific debt problems. We listen and then offer solutions that will help. These solutions may or may not include bankruptcy. Our attorneys will be honest and recommend options other than bankruptcy if they are a better fit. Bankruptcy is not the right solution for every debt problem, but if it appears to be a good solution our attorneys will take the time to talk with you and let you know what type of bankruptcy fits best and what to expect if you were to file bankruptcy.
At Getoutofdebt.org we are constantly clearing up many of the myths that consumers believe about bankruptcy and when appropriate we always encourage consumers to speak with a licensed bankruptcy attorney about their financial situation before making a major financial decision. Bankruptcy certainly is not a great option for all situations, but if you are dealing with debt, you should not automatically rule out bankruptcy based on what you have heard or what you think it might be like. Have a bankruptcy attorney review your situation and tell you whether or not a bankruptcy filing would be a good option and if so, how it would potentially affect you.

I never felt as if I was being pressured into doing the bankruptcy. They let me work at my own pace. Once I was fully committed to the process it was quick and simple. I would recommend these guys to anyone in need.

As a consumer in debt, you will find that it is almost impossible to find honest information about the bankruptcy process from programs that sell alternatives to bankruptcy. You will hear things like bankruptcy will ruin your life, your credit, your job prospects, and your ability to even rent a place to live. Unfortunately most of what you hear about bankruptcy just isn’t true. Bankruptcy is certainly not the answer for all situations, but the only way to know for sure is to ask a Portland bankruptcy lawyer to review your situation and explain how a bankruptcy filing would look for you.
