Get A Fresh Start With Bankruptcy

How A Bankruptcy Attorney Can Help

When you are struggling with debt, you can feel overwhelmed and hopeless. No matter how bleak it may appear, I can help you. I’m Rush M. Shortley.

I established my law firm to assist individuals and families with regaining control of their overwhelming personal and small-business finances. Through varying debt-relief options, like Chapter 7, Chapter 12, Chapter 13 and nonbankruptcy workouts, my clients have found peace of mind and financial freedom.

In my nearly 40 years of legal experience, I can honestly say that no two cases that I have worked with have been exactly the same – each person’s situation is unique.

That is why it is important to me to learn the details of my client’s financial circumstances to create tailored solutions that will address their particular issues.

Chapter 7, Chapter 12 Or Chapter 13?

  • For some clients, Chapter 7 can quickly eliminate practically all their debts, allowing them to obtain a “fresh start” for their financial life.
  • For others, Chapter 13 may better allow them to balance keeping secured property, like vehicles and homes with eliminating many of their credit card, medical or other unsecured debts.
  • For family farms, Chapter 12 may be the solution to their financial hardships.

I take the time to sit down with you, learn about your financial challenges and help you understand your legal options and consequences so you are able to make smart, educated decisions about your financial future.

When you consult with me, you will work one-on-one with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. You will not be shuffled from paralegal to paralegal – often a common occurrence at large law firms.

Bankruptcy Offers True Debt Relief

If you are drowning in unpaid bills and confused about getting debt relief, I can help you understand your different legal options during your initial bankruptcy consultation. I’ll explain the different types of debt relief and how for most, bankruptcy offers the most effective form of relief.
