Bankruptcy

The experienced bankruptcy attorneys at Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting regularly represent both creditors and debtors in bankruptcy proceedings. We defend collection, repossession, foreclosure and similar actions on behalf of debtors and also represent creditors in collecting debts owed from debtors of all kinds, including those actively involved in a bankruptcy action.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

The “new” and current bankruptcy law came into effect on October 17, 2005. Despite what you have heard, bankruptcy relief, and a “fresh start” Chapter 7 bankruptcy, is still available to individuals and companies facing financial difficulties.  However, filing a bankruptcy and obtaining bankruptcy relief is more complicated and time consuming that it once was.  The attorneys at Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting will take the time to explain to you how the law now works and will assist you in identifying and gathering all of the documents and information that you need to obtain prior to filing your bankruptcy. And, unlike other law firms, at Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting you will meet with an attorney, not a paralegal or legal assistant, on your very first visit to our firm.
