A Knowledgeable Lawyer Advising Clients on How to Improve Their Credit Score
Many people are afraid to file for bankruptcy because they are afraid of ruining their credit score. In reality, if you have a need for debt relief, your credit score has probably already suffered. Successfully completing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy can actually help to improve a negative credit rating.

We want to help you make a fresh financial start, which often includes counseling you on how to improve your credit after bankruptcy.

Dees understands the tough times you've gone through and welcomes the opportunity to help you build a solid plan for moving forward.

There Is Life After Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy no longer holds the same social stigma it did years ago. In today's difficult economy more and more people are finding themselves overwhelmed by debt. Turning to Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be their best option for getting things back on track. Once you have fulfilled the obligations set forth by the Bankruptcy Court, you can begin rebuilding your credit.
Creditors can see filing for bankruptcy as a positive action. You are showing that you want to resolve your former financial problems. Shortly after your bankruptcy is complete, you will begin receiving offers for various credit cards. Applying for a card and cautiously using it can help to improve your credit score. It is important to pay off your entire balance each month, not only to avoid falling into another pitfall, but to prove you are financially responsible.
