FREE VIRTUAL BANKRUPTCY CLINICS
During the COVID-19 pandemic, ALL bankruptcy clinics will be conducted via Zoom1. Each clinic will feature a 45-minute video providing an overview of certain procedures for filing bankruptcy, followed by a Question & Answer session staffed by one or more pro bono attorneys who are available to give general advice on bankruptcy matters. These attorneys do NOT represent you and can NOT provide you with legal advice regarding your particular circumstances. If you have already filed your case and it is still pending, you are solely responsible for responding to any pleadings or motions and for compliance with any order issued by your Bankruptcy Judge or to a request for information and documentation from your Bankruptcy Trustee. Unless you are represented by a lawyer, you are solely responsible for protecting your own legal rights. This is a FREE service and the attorneys are not there to attempt to acquire you as clients or ask you to pay them for advice or future services.

Need Additional Information?
Bankruptcy can have serious consequences, both in the short term and in the long term. A bankruptcy lawyer can explain to you what may happen as a result of filing for bankruptcy and what your options are outside of bankruptcy. If you do file for bankruptcy, a lawyer can help protect you, your family, your home and your possessions to the extent permitted by existing law.
