Port Jefferson, Long Island Bankruptcy Attorney


It is an unfortunate fact of life these days that many of us, our family and friends, are experiencing serious financial difficulties, oftentimes due to circumstances well beyond our own control. A lot of people fear that, with the changes in the bankruptcy law that took effect in 2005, the law is no longer on their side. While it is true that credit card companies pushed hard for the kinds of changes that took effect, the reality is that a knowledgeable and effective Suffolk County bankruptcy attorney can help people get a fresh financial start.

At the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman, for the past 22 years we have worked with clients from every walk of life: executives, doctors, office workers, secretaries, construction workers, small business owners and countless others who have, for whatever reason, found themselves overwhelmed by debt. When you rely on our client-focused law firm for your bankruptcy, you work directly with professionals whose first priority is to help you change your life for the better.

We primarily help clients take advantage of Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection which allows individuals and even small business owners to liquidate their assets to discharge debts. There are important differences between a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which oftentimes will not require payments to creditors or forfeiture of assets, and a Chapter 13, which generally requires a schedule of payments and is most often employed where a home is in arrears and facing foreclosure. We will guide you through every step of your case and may even be able to help you get rid of your debt without losing your home or car.

If bankruptcy is the right alternative for your situation, we should be able to address issues that matter to you by providing relief from:

  • creditor harassment

  • credit card debts

  • medical bills

  • foreclosure

  • tax issues

  • wage garnishments

It is important to work with a Suffolk County bankruptcy lawyer who has the skill, experience and tools to evaluate all aspects of your situation and build a strategy for your bankruptcy case that meets your specific needs. To find out how we can help you take action to take back control of your finances, please feel free to contact us by calling 1-800-701-9137 or e-mailing our Port Jefferson, Long Island bankruptcy law office directly at info@kaufmanatlaw.com.
