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

The last few years have been chaotic and difficult for many people. If you’ve found yourself behind on bills and struggling to stay afloat, you’re not alone. Medical debts, rising property taxes, and increasing costs of living have hit many people in Snohomish County and across the Pacific Northwest particularly hard. Housing costs keep rising; many families face the prospect of losing their homes. 

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.

If this sounds like your life, the lawyers at the Symmes Law Group, PLLC, can show you solutions all the comfort of your own home virtually via Zoom. For individuals with debt that feels inescapable, consumer bankruptcy laws can help you get a handle on your finances and restore your sense of security. We can help you file for relief under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We also offer other services to help you regain 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!

If you’re tired of harassing phone calls, texts, and collection letters, hope is on the way. 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 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. End the harassment now—for good!

Worried About Traffic on the I-5? Don’t Be!

Bankruptcy petitions for King County residents are filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington. Between battling tourist traffic and navigating Seattle’s permanent congestion, appearing in court downtown can seem almost as daunting as your debts. We have great news! Although the Bankruptcy 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 on a secured telecommunications platform. 
  • Secure online document signing and electronic authentication ensure safety and security while making the entire process more convenient and efficient.
  • Symmes Law Group, PLLC, can meet with you via telephone or teleconference (using Zoom or other available platforms)—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.
