Bankruptcy Protection and Debt Relief
While no one hopes to find themselves in bankruptcy, the federal and state bankruptcy laws are there to provide people like yourself with fresh financial starts, so that they can emerge from paralyzing debt and continue to play a vital role in our local and national economy. We offer Iowa individuals and businesses legal assistance in getting back on their feet through the following types of proceedings:
- CHAPTER 7 – We will work with you to completely discharge all eligible debts through a Chapter 7 filing, meaning you will no longer be responsible on those debts at all. Most Chapter 7 proceedings can be completed within 90 days of filing, and you will receive protection from creditors as soon as you file.
- CHAPTER 13 – In a Chapter 13 proceeding, we will work with you to create a plan to pay off your creditors at a reduced rate and on your timing. A Chapter 13 reorganization can be a great option for many individuals who cannot file for Chapter 7 or who would prefer to retain certain assets.
- DEBT RELIEF – For some parties, avoiding a bankruptcy proceeding is possible through working out agreements directly with creditors which will reduce your obligations and penalties.
If you have been injured on the job in Iowa, your employer is, in most cases, obligated to provide you with compensation for many of your losses, including lost wages, medical bills, and short-term and long-term disabilities. We will work with you to make sure that your employer provides you the maximum amount of workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled, and without undue delay.
We work with injured victims and their families in personal injury matters to obtain full recovery from the wrongdoers who negligently, intentionally, or recklessly caused their injuries. Under Iowa law, a victim wrongfully injured by another is entitled to recovery for the lifetime costs of medical care, all lost wages and reduced income potential, pain and suffering, and other damages in certain cases. At the Noyes Law Office, we work extensively with medical professionals to accurately assess the full extent of your injuries and cost of care so that we can fight for every penny you are owed under the law.
We represent parties in both bringing and defending civil claims of all types. If you find yourself the subject of a civil claim, call us to discuss what your best legal and financial options may be. We can work with you to defend your claim, and in some cases pursue bankruptcy options in order to resolve any potential obligations on the claim.
