As one of the first 18 attorneys in Ohio to be certified by the American Board of Certification, I have unparalleled expertise in providing skillful counsel to clients in dire financial situations. I'm ready to collaborate with you in order to build a robust strategy for securing your financial future.
I have been guiding clients through some of the most stressful times of their lives since 1977. You are not alone in your fight for financial freedom. I will use my decades of experience to support you every step of the way, providing knowledgeable advice both in and out of the courtroom.
Even the most financially prudent individuals can find themselves with rising debts that threaten their financial security. You may feel isolated by your financial struggles, but there is no reason to feel alone. Plenty of individuals file for bankruptcy each year. I started my firm—the Law Offices of Bruce R Epstein—to serve people like you who are struggling to keep their heads above water.
If you are considering bankruptcy, it’s vital you understand your options. While both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies protect you from creditors, taking advantage of experienced counsel to understand the benefits and drawbacks of each path will save you money and help avoid unexpected losses. I use my substantial experience in the courtroom to help clients declare with confidence, and prepare for each and every step of the process.
When handled properly, filing for bankruptcy represents the first step towards reclaiming financial freedom. Although it may feel scary, successfully navigating the bankruptcy process can put a stop to endless creditor calls, as well as halt or delay evictions, foreclosures, utility shut-offs, and reduce or eliminate other stressful consequences. It also allows you to begin rebuilding your credit.
I have served Northern Ohio on the Strategic Planning Committee for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court as well as Law Clerk to Chief Judge Frank J. Battisti of the United States District Court. Helping members of my community has been a cornerstone of my practice since its founding in 1981. I am proud to offer my services to the communities of Youngstown, Boardman, Austintown, and Salem, Ohio. Reach out today for a free consultation to learn how I can help you too.
