About the Firm

We help you get the “fresh start” that you deserve!

The principal purpose of the Bankruptcy Code is to grant a “fresh start to the honest but unfortunate debtor.”
— United States Supreme Court

We are not your typical bankruptcy attorneys! Rather, the Metro Detroit Bankruptcy Law Group prides itself on taking a holistic approach to analyze your financial needs before starting a bankruptcy case. 

Just like when you build a building you need a blueprint BEFORE you start to build, if you plan to file bankruptcy you need a plan BEFORE you file.  As Winston Churchill put it … “Failing to Plan Is Like Planning To Fail.”

Prior to filing bankruptcy we will meet with you, review your overall financial picture, and then strategize a road back to financial health which may or may not include a bankruptcy case. This is an important step as, there are a lot of risks to filing bankruptcy without a strategic plan.  For example:

  • You risk losing property that you didn’t think about
  • You risk having your non-filing spouse get sued over joint assets (like your house)
  • You risk having family, friends or people you payed back get sued (if the payments fall within the “preference period.”

That’s why, before filing bankruptcy, you want an experienced lawyer on your side.

What makes Metro Detroit Bankruptcy Law Group different from everyone else?

1. We don’t treat you as just a “number.” Rather we focus on your individual needs and look at the “big picture” surrounding your financial situation in order to help you achieve your personal goals. Bankruptcy is a means to an end. While there are many things that can be accomplished through filing bankruptcy, not everyone has the same goal. 

  • Some of our clients are looking to discharge their debts and don’t have many assets to worry about. 
  • Some clients want to get out of bad car deals.
  • Some clients need to stop a garnishment or foreclosure.
  • Other clients are concerned about preserving assets by working out a plan to pay a percentage of what they owe. 
  • Yet another group of clients are looking to restructure by getting out of burdensome contracts. 

Unlike other bankruptcy firms who sometimes blur cases by providing a “one size fits all” solution, if you become a client, we promise to thoroughly review all the details of your specific situation and analyze them from every feasible angle in order to determine the best course of action and avoid undesired consequences while helping you achieve your goals.

2. We get big firm results while maintaining a small firm atmosphere. Contrary to popular belief you don’t need a large “silk stocking” firm to protect you from unsavory creditors. Rather, our success comes from the personal service that we provide to all of our clients.

3. We aggressively fight to protect our clients. Both in and out of court, no matter the circumstances. In fact, judges have commented, “Even if I don’t always agree with you, I admire the fact that you are so passionate about what you are fighting for.”

4. Most importantly, we build lifelong relationships with our clients and have many who come back to us for other legal matters at various points throughout their lives. While any firm can file your paperwork, we take pride in helping our clients get through the bankruptcy process in order to get back on their feet, re-establish credit and avoid the same traps in the future.

Always willing to go the extra mile, we believe in a hands-on, personal service approach with all of our clients. Aggressive when we need to be, conciliatory when we do not, our attorneys have the experience, skill, and dedication to assist you. At the Metro Detroit Bankruptcy Law Group, we care about helping YOU develop a customized financial solution that works for YOU. Your goals are our goals.

Thus we urge you to 248-417-9800 to speak with an attorney who will take the time to really understand your goals and your desired results. Contact Us Online.

While bankruptcy may seem easy, it is important to hire an experienced bankruptcy attorney to plan your bankruptcy so that you can avoid the traps and pitfalls that may occur along the way and prevent you from obtaining your discharge.

Unfortunately, too many times we have met debtors who come to us too late—after going to a bankruptcy “mill” who filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case without a strategic plan that considered all of the alternatives and consequences, including situations where people unnecessarily lost their homes or the equity in them. We then have to expend resources to attempt a “glove save” — to the detriment of the person who could have avoided all of the risk and extra expense by coming to us in the first place.

We help clients throughout the entire Metro Detroit tri-county area (Wayne County, Oakland County and Macomb County) including the cities and surrounding communities of Detroit, Southfield, Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Centerline, Dearborn, Farmington, Farmington Hills, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Livonia, Madison Heights, Mount Clemens, Oak Park, Pontiac, Roseville, Royal Oak, Shelby Township, Sterling Heights, Troy, Warren, and West Bloomfield — just to name a few! Thank you for considering the Metro Detroit Bankruptcy Law Group. We look forward to helping you soon!
