Are you considering bankruptcy?

There is no need to feel any shame or embarrassment. Thousands of people in Illinois alone file for bankruptcy each year. People from varying backgrounds and of all educational levels can find themselves in desperate financial situations. We at Needle & Thread Law understand the enormous stress and anxiety associated with the financial burden caused by overwhelming debt, and we are dedicated to providing you with the advice needed to alleviate your greatest concerns.

Bankruptcy law is encompassed by federal laws that are enacted by the United States Congress. In most circumstances, consumer debtors are looking to file either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case. Before deciding to file, it is important to consult with an attorney to learn both the facts of Bankruptcy and your rights under Bankruptcy law.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
