We offer a free telephonic bankruptcy clinic in partnership with the Federal Bar Association.


Visit the clinic to get free legal advice on filing for bankruptcy without an attorney (Pro Se). Experienced bankruptcy lawyers can look through your forms to catch things that may cause problems for your case and help you fix them. They'll advise on bankruptcy-related issues and answer questions. Attend as many times as you need during the duration of your bankruptcy.
