Protect Your Belongings From Creditors

Frequently, we hear from clients throughout the Springfield, Illinois, area who have been avoiding filing bankruptcy. They are afraid that a bankruptcy means they lose all their belongings.

That is simply not the case.

In fact, one of the main goals of a bankruptcy is to help you protect those belongings you need most. State and federal laws exist to promote that very purpose.

Michael J. Logan, LTD., Can Help You Keep What You Own

Bankruptcy laws generally allow you to keep your home, your car, your furnishings, your clothing and much, much more. The point of the bankruptcy law is to help you get back on your feet. You cannot do that unless the bankruptcy laws protect you.

Is it possible that the bankruptcy laws do not protect your house and car? It is possible, but unlikely. Only by looking at your specific case and applying the general law can an intelligent bankruptcy attorney make a representation to you about your particular situation.

For that reason, our founding lawyer, Michael J. Logan, wants you to come see us. We have built our firm on the principle of individualized bankruptcy services in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases. We firmly believe that the best way to build a successful bankruptcy case is by working with you individually so we understand you and your goals for your belongings.

In helping you keep what you own, we will often be applying general rules called exemptions. These exemptions are simply what the law allows you to keep.

What you keep often depends on the value of the item being kept. We understand how to evaluate your belongings properly because we hold more than 35 years of experience in these matters. We know how the law works and how to apply it to your situation.
