Where Can I Find An Experienced Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyer in King County?

Financial difficulties can snowball quickly into an overwhelming situation. You may become buried under a mountain of debt, struggling to pay day-to-day bills. It can feel like you can’t keep up—much less get ahead—no matter how hard you work. As the King County housing market tightens even more, gas prices go up, groceries seem even more expensive than restaurants, and escaping the avalanche seems impossible. Soaring real estate prices and property taxes may even threaten your home.

If this sounds like your life, you aren’t alone—and you aren’t out of options. Consumer bankruptcy laws can help you get out of debt and restore your sense of security.

Next month, the USTP will begin to phase in a new approach by which all initial section 341 meetings in chapter 7, 12, and 13 cases will move on a permanent basis to a video platform. There may, of course, be exceptions in rare cases when video is not possible and conducting the initial examination by telephone will still be necessary.

Where have you assisted clients within King County?

The lawyers at the Symmes Law Group, PLLC, handle all matters related to consumer bankruptcy filings virtually, including helping individuals seek protection under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. We also offer other services to help you restore your financial stability, including:

  • Student loan negotiation and settlement.
  • Loan restructuring.
  • Credit repair and credit counseling.
  • Debt settlement.
  • Medical bill negotiation and settlement.
  • Foreclosure defense mediation.

Stop Creditor Harassment NOW!

As soon as you begin the bankruptcy process, the “automatic stay” provision makes it illegal for most creditors to pursue collection efforts. This gives you immediate relief from their phone calls, texts, and harassment and prevents foreclosure on your home. The automatic stay remains in effect until your bankruptcy is resolved, so this is more than a temporary measure… it’s the end of those calls for good.

But the Bridge Is Closed…AGAIN

Bankruptcy petitions for King County residents are filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington. Although the court has physical locations in Seattle and Tacoma, almost everything related to your case can be handled online. 

  • Documents and petitions are filed using a secure online filing system that carefully protects your sensitive financial information. 
  • Court hearings are held virtually using a secured telecommunications platform. 
  • Secure online document signing and electronic authentication keep you safe and secure while making the entire process more convenient and efficient.
  • Symmes Law Group, PLLC, can even meet with you via teleconference (using Zoom or other available platforms) or telephone—no need to come into our offices. 

Bottom line: you can obtain bankruptcy protection or arrange a loan restructuring without ever setting foot in a courtroom or lawyer’s office. 

DON’T fight Seattle traffic.

DO fight for your future.

We will help you prepare a plan for your financial future, which may involve loan modification, credit counseling services, Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
