San Diego Bankruptcy Attorneys

35+ Years Helping Debtors Find the Right Solutions

Filing for bankruptcy can put a stop to foreclosure of your home and harassment from creditors if your petition is approved by the bankruptcy court. Once the court issues an automatic stay, you will be protected from creditor collection efforts, home foreclosure, vehicle repossession, and judgment liens.

However, it is important to note that bankruptcy is not always the right option for everyone. That is why you should consult with our San Diego bankruptcy attorneys first. Bankruptcy is no simple task, and the entire process is complex and can become a major ordeal if it is not properly handled. Filing for bankruptcy requires completing loads of paperwork and numerous appearances in court. Unfortunately, a simple error on a legal form can result in a bankruptcy petition being denied.

When you contact us, we can review your eligibility, answer your questions, and help you avoid any unexpected issues with your bankruptcy case. We are available to review your debt and finances and can prepare you for the process ahead so that you feel confident knowing your best interests are represented. When you choose Debt Relief Legal Clinic to represent you, we make it our top priority to handle all aspects of your case. So you can count on our legal team to be in your corner to address your legal questions or concerns.

Please don’t wait any longer if you are feeling burdened by debt and running out of options. Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 may be able to help you eliminate most debts. We are here to use our extensive legal resources and 35+ years of experience to help you get your financial affairs back in order so that you are free from debt. Our legal professionals are personable and extremely knowledgeable, and we will do what it takes to find the right solution to solving your debt problems.

About San Diego

San Diego is the second most populous city in the state of California, behind Los Angeles. As of 2020, San Diego has a population of approximately 1,386,932 people. It is the county seat of San Diego County.

The city borders Mexico and was historically part of Mexico’s Alta California territory before California was ceded to the United States in 1848 following the Mexican-American War.

Today, San Diego is a military town with a number of bases and headquarters of defense contractors, such as NASSCO and Cubic. In addition San Diego is home to businesses like Nokia, Cricket Communications, and LG Electronics. The city’s proximity to Mexico and the Port of San Diego make it a hub of international trade. With beaches and local attractions like the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and nearby LEGOLAND, tourism is another major industry of San Diego.
