Filing for bankruptcy may seem unthinkable. But for many people struggling in today’s economy, it is a viable avenue for debt relief and a fresh financial start. You have nothing to be ashamed of and nothing to fear. Whether you are in financial straits due to divorce, unforeseen medical bills, job loss, reduced income, credit card debt, foreclosure, business failure or loss of equity in your property, the Volusia County bankruptcy attorneys at Mara & Mara, Attorneys at Law treat you with dignity and find the best option to suit your situation.
Robert Mara has a degree in finance; Wendy Mara has a master’s degree in business administration. Together, we form a solid team working for your interests. We stay on top of developments in bankruptcy law and put our knowledge to work for you.
Our diverse skills have earned us a reputation among fellow attorneys, other professionals and clients as skilled negotiators and talented Volusia County bankruptcy lawyers.
Our attorneys spend time with their clients — the time it takes to explain the law and your options, to answer questions and to ensure your bankruptcy case is handled accurately. We provide an honest evaluation so you are clear on the potential consequences of every option, whether you seek debt relief as an individual, a couple or a business.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often the best option if you, your business, or you and your spouse want to liquidate your debt and start over. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often a better course if you are interested in a repayment plan. It may save your home from foreclosure, stop garnishment of your wages and prevent repossession of assets such as your car, truck or boat. Florida homeowners also have a relatively new alternative in mortgage modification mediation to preserve their homes or modify their mortgage within the Chapter 13 bankruptcy context.
No matter your course of action, your lawyer makes the path as straightforward as possible. We are at your side throughout the process, from review of your financial documentation to filing of the bankruptcy petition in federal court and any appearances in court or meeting with creditors.
