Repay Your Debt With Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Unlike Chapter 7, which completely discharges your debt, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to set up an affordable plan for repaying a portion of your debt. Following successful completion of your customized, three- or five-year plan, your remaining unsecured debt will be discharged.
In order to create a feasible Chapter 13 plan, our team at Wright Law Offices will carefully examine your income, expenses — such as your mortgage and car payments — and your debt, in order to craft a repayment plan that works for you. In most cases, we observe our clients’ credit scores increasing within one year of filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 and Foreclosure Defense
Many people file for Chapter 13 when they are facing foreclosure. Through the automatic stay and other tactics, such as eliminating a second mortgage through lien stripping, we can help you avoid foreclosure and keep your home.

Why File for Bankruptcy
As a Phoenix, AZ chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer well knows, the number one benefit to filing for chapter 13 bankruptcy is that your assets are protected. Unlike chapter 7 in which your assets are only exempt up to a certain amount, you do not have to worry with chapter 13 about losing your things. Learn how this will benefit you, and then contact Wright Law Offices for help.
Benefit #1: Keep Your Stuff
Chapter 13 focuses on repayment plans, not repossessions. Protect everything you love and hold dear while making payments back on what you owe. In fact, you may not even need to pay back everything you owe. Your payment plan will be determined based on your income and how much debt you are currently in. You will be afforded with a three to five year plan in which you will make regular payments to pay off some or all of your debt based on the original agreement your attorney, the courts, and your debtors all decide upon.
Benefit #2: Make Payments
Under chapter 13, you establish a payment plan. This will allow you to slowly but surely pay off your debts so that you no longer have to worry about them. Your plan will not have any surprises; you will always know what you will owe well ahead of time so that you can work to pay it off. Once you have finished making payments, if you were not required to pay off all your debts, whatever debt is left will be discharged.
Benefit #3: No Collectors
Once you have worked with an attorney to file for chapter 13, debt collectors are no longer allowed to contact you. No more harassing phone calls or threatening letters. They know you have submitted to an agreement to pay off your debts and will no longer need to reach out to you.
Benefit #4: Worry Less
With a trusted Phoenix chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer by your side, you can officially worry less. No more sleepless nights wondering how you will pay everything off. No more panic attacks over debt collectors ambushing you unexpectedly. You will have a clear path forward that will allow you to put your mind at ease while you work to discharge your debt.
Benefit #5: Support
Working with an experienced attorney will make all the difference in the world for your case. They will negotiate with lenders and represent you in court. They will ensure that your rights are protected and so are the assets that you and your family cherish the most. If you are still suffering from anxiety or stress, they can also provide you with resources to help overcome and manage those responses to the situation.
There are of course also drawbacks to filing for chapter 13. One of the biggest is that it can stay on your credit report for up to ten years. However, this is not always the case. You will lose all your credit cards with this type of bankruptcy. It will also be very difficult to get any type of loan, especially a mortgage. To determine if filing for bankruptcy is the right option for you, contact a Phoenix chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer at Wright Law Offices for help.

Why should you hire our firm to represent you in bankruptcy?
Great question. Here are a few reasons:
- 1. Bankruptcy is our sole area of practice. Attorney Wright has over 10 years of experience in the field of bankruptcy and has helped over 1000 people successfully file.
- 2. Attorney Wright has an accounting background that is useful in analyzing complex financial documents. Prior to law school he obtained a degree in accounting from the University of Wisconsin School of Business. He exercised his strong numerical aptitude in the field of accounting, including several years with The Kohler Co., before ultimately deciding to pursue a law degree.
- 3. New clients meet with an attorney during their first visit. We understand your time is valuable. It is important your questions are answered quickly and accurately so you can take appropriate steps to secure a better financial future and eliminate fear and stress.
4. In business, referrals are the highest form of professional compliment. We frequently receive referrals from other lawyers and previous clients.
- 5. Our firm is small which enables us to focus on quality over quantity. We don’t have billboards on the I-10 or banners affixed to public transportation. Our approach is a bit more understated. We care about people and doing things right and it shows in our low employee turnover and positive reviews.
- 6. Perhaps the most important consideration is the cost of filing bankruptcy. We continuously assess our fees to ensure we offer fair and competitive pricing. We want to offer you a deal without sacrificing the quality of your experience.

I called around looking for the right bankruptcy lawyer and came across Benjamin Wright. He personally called me for the consultation seeing how I live in Kingman AZ. He was very helpful from the start and his staff was very friendly and explained any questions I had, sorry for all the questions. I would definitely recommend Wright law offices, and I do!! Thanks for everything, you made what seemed like a hard thing to do simple!! You guys rock!!!
Great lawyer, he really helped my mother out of a jam. She was totally new to bankruptcy and he talked with us for about an hour and a half to make sure she wouldn’t be worried.
Ben is a kind and down to earth attorney. He worked around my busy schedule as a single mom (school, full-time job, and daycare pick up and drop off times). He explained absolutely everything to me and was good about e-mailing. I am writing this review as a THANK YOU.
I had a very positive experience with Attorney Wright. He or his staff returned my e-mails and calls promptly (even after business hours occasionally). His fees were reasonable. He was patient with me when I showed up in court missing an important document. He is aggressive, but fair and nice.
