George is passionate about educating his clients on the options available to them and how the law may work in their favor. For example, when an individual files for bankruptcy, by law, the creditor cannot continue actions to collect the debt and foreclosure proceedings are suspended. Under Chapter 13, a repayment plan can be worked out with the mortgage company to repay the past due mortgage payments over a maximum period of 5 years and the individual can keep their home with a new mortgage payment schedule the following month, thus providing a “fresh start.” All of this and many more issues can be discussed in the FREE consultation that he offers.
