The stress and anxiety that come with facing financial difficulty can impact every aspect of your personal and professional life. People in these situations will do anything they can to get out of debt. Some have even gone as far as cashing in their retirement accounts in order to pay off their bills.

Olsen, we provide comprehensive bankruptcy services to clients throughout the San Fernando Valley. Through consumer bankruptcy, we can help you stop foreclosure and put an end to harassing phone calls, garnishments and other collection activity.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be a good option for people who have large amounts of unsecured debt such as credit card debt or medical bills. Mr. Olsen has obtained discharges in more than 1,000 Chapter 7 cases for his clients. If you are considering debt consolidation as an option, Mr. Olsen can advise you on the advantages bankruptcy can offer.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Also referred to as a "wage-earner's" plan, a Chapter 13 works well for people who have a steady income but have trouble making ends meet. In a Chapter 13, you would make regular payments to your trustee according to a court-approved repayment plan over a three- to five-year period. At the end of your repayment plan, you receive a full discharge of your debts.
