Filing Bankruptcy Can Improve Your Credit Score

Filing for Bankruptcy is never an easy decision and not one that is taken lightly by our clients. Most do not want to go down that road but often it is the only way to obtain relief from a mountain of debt that has been accumulated for any number of reasons.

“Often, our clients file for bankruptcy not because they are lazy or because they do not want to work, but perhaps because they have mounting medical bills, are going through or recently completed a divorce or have made poor business decisions in terms of who they have aligned themselves with,” remarked Ari Linden, Chair of Bratton Scott LLC Bankruptcy Department.

“Filing for Bankruptcy will allow them to start fresh and rebuild their credit rather than continuing on in a destructive pattern.”

Filing for Bankruptcy can allow a fresh start and a chance to rebuild credit rather than continuing on a destructive pattern.
