People usually wait too long to file for bankruptcy because it is such a difficult decision.  However, debt does not go away on its own.  With time your debt will only get worse and the stress you are experiencing will wear on your health. Not to mention, creditors will continue to harass you, the risk of wage garnishment, and the risk of repossession or foreclosure will increase.  Sometimes, the realization that Bankruptcy is the way out comes as a last resort, a desperate measure.  Ultimately, it could be a lawsuit or a writ of garnishment that puts you over the edge.  In this case, you have waited too long.

It is very common for debtors to find ways to pay off their creditors in order to avoid bankruptcy. Unfortunately, it ends up costing them more money than it would be speaking to an attorney.  The following is a list of common mistakes debtors should avoid doing:

  • Taking money out of retirement programs to pay unsecured debt;
  • Borrowing money from banks, taking out cash advances from credit cards, dealing with payday lenders;
  • Selling real estate or other assets;
  • Transferring property to friends or family members;
  • Borrowing money from friends and family;
  • Drawing down their bank accounts to pay dischargeable debt;
  • Getting sued, or garnished or attached;
  • Dealing with unpleasant phone calls, nasty letters and stress.

If you are currently making any of these mistakes, you should contact a bankruptcy attorney immediately.  The Wright law Offices with an office located in Avondale will provide you with expert legal knowledge to get you out of debt and a fresh start in life.

    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.

    TOP Rated PHOENIX BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY
    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.
