A Full-Service Bankruptcy Law and Debt Relief Firm
For more than a decade, Hinkle Law PLLC has helped people shed debt and get a fresh start in Charleston and throughout the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. We are a full-service bankruptcy law and debt relief firm that is focused on helping clients understand their rights, stop debt collector harassment, navigate the legal process, and restore their financial health. Our team can help you get through bankruptcy proceedings and we can help you rebuild your credit score after a filing. Among other things, we provide the following legal services to people and in families in Charleston:
- Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: The most common type of bankruptcy filed in West Virginia, Chapter 7 is also known as a ‘straight bankruptcy’ or a ‘liquidation bankruptcy.’ Through a successful Chapter 7 petition, consumers can shed many, if not all, of their debts—this includes credit card payments and medical bills. If available, it may be the best way to get a fresh start. While not everyone is eligible to file for Chapter 7, Charleston bankruptcy attorney David J. Hinkle is ready to review your financial circumstances and let you know if you qualify. From there, we will walk you through the legal process.
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: The primary alternative to Chapter 7, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows people to obtain a sustainable monthly payment plan to resolve most (or all) of their outstanding debts. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a valuable legal tool because it stops the calls, ends any wage garnishments or collection actions, and allows you to get a single monthly payment that you can actually afford. To find out more about your options, contact our Charleston Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer today.
- Debt Relief and Stopping Creditor Harassment: If you are falling behind on your bills, you may be already dealing with seemingly endless calls from aggressive debt collectors. You should know that there are strict rules regarding what creditors can and cannot do when trying to collect a debt. If they break the law, they must be held accountable. In some cases, you may even be entitled to financial compensation under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Our firm will protect your rights and put a stop to debt collector harassment. Additionally, our Charleston attorney will help you explore any and all potential non-bankruptcy debt relief solutions.
We are Focused on Restoring Your Financial Health
Debt can feel suffocating. You can quickly get overwhelmed trying to catch back up with all of the payments. Above all else, our mission is to help people restore their financial health. We understand how stressful and frustrating it can be to deal with non-stop calls from debt collectors and bills that keep piling up. Debt can make it difficult to relax and feel comfortable. Even worse, it can take a real toll on your health and well-being.
Do not let debt be a source of shame. It is simply a problem that needs to be addressed and resolved. The sooner you consult with an experienced Charleston bankruptcy attorney, the easier it will be to find a solution. You do not need to be ready to file for bankruptcy protection to work with our firm. During a free, confidential consultation, we can help you understand your rights and identify actionable steps that you can take to move forward and regain control of your financial situation. Our lawyer will also take steps to improve and rebuild your credit rating.
