Why Do I Need an Attorney to File Bankruptcy in New Jersey?

While there is no legal requirement for you to have a lawyer representing you in a bankruptcy proceeding, there are countless practical reasons that it would be to your benefit. There is a lot riding on your bankruptcy, and the process can be extremely complex. Errors in your initial petition can cause unnecessary delays and may even get your request for bankruptcy protection denied.

Having an experienced New Jersey bankruptcy attorney representing you throughout the process helps to ensure that your interests are protected to the fullest extent possible. I am attorney Joel R. Spivack, and I have been practicing law in South Jersey for more than 30 years. I have dedicated my entire career to bankruptcy law. I don’t do anything else.

New Jersey Bankruptcy Attorney Handles Discharge of Debts

Having an attorney who only focuses on bankruptcy law can be invaluable in ways that go far beyond the effective handling of your petition and discharge of debts. I pride myself on the consultative approach I take with every client. Not only can I help you through the bankruptcy process, I will also help you determine if bankruptcy is the best solution to your debt relief needs.

I am committed to your long-term financial well-being, not collecting a fee from every person who walks through my door. I can help you understand what bankruptcy can and cannot do for you, and recommend alternative solutions if bankruptcy will not get the job done — even if it means that you don’t use my services.
