"The word 'bankruptcy' scares me; I'm not sure I am brave enough to even call you."
You can do it! We understand just the word "bankruptcy" is a little scary to some folks. But think of it this way. If there weren't real benefits to bankruptcy, why are so many
people filing for bankruptcy? Here are some facts: Florida is divided into three areas for the bankruptcy courts, the Northern, Middle, and Southern Districts. Jacksonville and surrounding counties are in the Middle District, which extends down the middle of the state to Naples. In the Middle District the average number of bankruptcy cases filed
every day is 156 new cases, and that includes Saturdays and Sundays. That's over 1,000 new bankruptcy cases each week, all year long. That's not just 1,000 people. Many of these cases are joint filings, husband and wife, so the number of people seeking help from the bankruptcy law is much higher than 1,000 a week. And that doesn't count the bankruptcy cases filed in the Southern and Northern Districts of Florida. So there are a lot of folks in Florida who are finding out what bankruptcy can do for them, and once they understand what bankruptcy offers, they are getting their cases filed. Be brave. Call us. Bankruptcy may be just what you need.
