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

Financial difficulties can quickly become overwhelming. It can feel like you can’t keep up—much less get ahead—no matter how hard you work. As Tacoma continues to grow, the Pierce County housing market tightens even more, and gas prices seem to never stop climbing. Skyrocketing real estate prices and property taxes may threaten your home. You may struggle to pay your bills and put food on the table, especially if you have suffered from illness or loss of income during COVID-19.

You aren’t alone—and you aren’t out of options. Consumer bankruptcy laws can help you climb out of debt and feel secure once again.

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.

The lawyers at the Symmes Law Group, PLLC, offer a virtual lifeline for individuals drowning in debt or struggling to make ends meet. We handle all types of consumer bankruptcy filings under the United States Bankruptcy Code, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 petitions. We also offer other services to help you restore your financial stability, including:

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

Stop Creditor Harassment NOW!

As soon as you begin the bankruptcy process, the “automatic stay” provision of the Bankruptcy Code 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—those calls are gone for good.

There’s ANOTHER Traffic Jam by the Tacoma Dome

Bankruptcy petitions for King County residents are filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington, which has physical locations in Seattle and Tacoma. As life returns to normal, traffic on the I-5 is back to pre-pandemic levels. Driving to court can seem almost as bad as dealing with bill collectors. 

Good news! 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 meet with you via telephone or teleconference (i.e., Zoom or other available platforms)—no need to visit 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 Tacoma traffic.

DO fight for your future.
