Our firm, renowned for its expertise in bankruptcy law, provides a formidable shield against creditors and litigations.

When you are on the receiving end of a lawsuit for debt collection, time is of the essence. Any delay can exacerbate the situation, leading to potential wage garnishments, asset seizures, or even bank levies.

This is where the Law Office of W. Derek May steps in, equipped with the tools and knowledge to navigate the complexities of bankruptcy law.

As an established bankruptcy lawyer, W. Derek May understands the intricacies of debt relief law and utilizes this expertise to protect your rights. By opting for bankruptcy, you invoke an "automatic stay," a powerful provision immediately halting most debt collection activities, including ongoing lawsuits. This automatic stay acts as a legal buffer, giving you much-needed breathing space to reassess your financial landscape and plan your next steps.

Bankruptcy law offers various pathways, chiefly through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, each with its unique benefits. Chapter 7, also known as liquidation bankruptcy, can lead to the discharge of unsecured debts, effectively neutralizing the lawsuit's basis. On the other hand, Chapter 13, or reorganization bankruptcy, allows you to create a manageable repayment plan while retaining your assets.

At the Law Office of W. Derek May, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. As a dedicated debt relief law firm, we tailor our legal strategies to align with your specific financial situation, ensuring the most effective defense against debt collection lawsuits. Our goal is not just to fend off the immediate legal threats but to lay down a roadmap for long-term financial stability.
