Helping Clients Get A Fresh Start!

The federal bankruptcy laws changed in 2005, many people are uncertain as to the rights afforded them under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and laws of the State of Ohio. Although the laws make it more challenging to obtain Chapter 7 “fresh start” and Chapter 13 “repayment plan” relief, the bankruptcy attorneys at Sheppard Law Offices, with office locations in Hilliard (Columbus), Newark, Mount Vernon, Akron, and Canton Ohio can assist you in deciding which type of bankruptcy protection and relief is proper for you.

During initial consultations, we routinely inform people that there are three primary ways to handle their debts:


Three ways to handle Bankruptcy

  1. Deal with the Creditors directly
  2. Consolidate unsecured debts through a debt consolidation company like Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Ohio (also known as Apprisen Financial)
  3. File for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Remember that filing for bankruptcy not only gives you immediate relief, but it is also teaches you how to make smart financial decisions so that you can build a successful future, free of debt, for you and your family.
