Hiring Random General Practice Attorney for Bankruptcy Leads to Disaster

Geraci Law concentrates in Bankruptcy: why pay the SAME and not get the NAME

Read the following article written by Attorney Peter Francis Geraci and MORE @ https://www.infotapes.com/Articles

A homeowner hired a local attorney in Algonquin Illinois whose main business is income tax preparation. That attorney failed to avoid a judgment lien attached to the residence. That was in 2015, 7 years ago. After the discharge was entered, the lien remained, and the homeowner discovered it 4 years later, and complained to the lawyer, who filed at least 4 motions to reopen the case that failed. The poor homeowner then hired another attorney to clean up the mess, who also failed.

Here’s what the court had to say about the first attorney: While the court does not do so for every attorney appearing before it, as Maksymonko was unfamiliar to the court and given his repeated errors, prior to the Initial Hearing, the court sua sponte sought to confirm Maksymonko’s status as an attorney authorized to practice before it. It is worth noting here that this court has no bar qualifications or admission process. Attorneys practicing before it must only be members in good standing of the bar of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. What the court discovered was concerning—that Maksymonko was not a member in good standing of the District Court bar. Apparently Maksymonko was suspended from practice by the State of Illinois on January 23, 2003. As a result, he was reciprocally suspended by the District Court. https://www.ilnb.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/opinions/BruceK.Probst15bk12654JudicialLienAvoidanceUnder522f60.pdf

Another attorney then appeared and failed. The lien of $92,054.53 is still stuck on the debtor’s residence. All because the homeowner went to an “unknown attorney” who was suspended. You can read the whole sad story in Judge Barnes’ opinion. Geraci Law would have simply filed, and won, a motion to avoid the lien, for most likely $92,000 less than what the homeowner is going to have to pay. Those attorneys who “dabble” in bankruptcy law may sometimes cause big trouble for their clients. In this case, the cost of a “cheap lawyer” was over $92,000.00.

So What is A Chapter 13?

Chapter 13 can consolidate your debt based on YOUR budget rather than the terms dictated by the creditors. It’s one payment that is affordable to Y-O-U.

And – why would it help me?

Chapter 13s are often misunderstood. Some debt consolidation schemes may advertise paying back your debt to AVOID bankruptcy. You pay one payment for an estimated amount of time to creditors. Sounds great right?

What we have seen, most people who attempt debt consolidation end up filing for bankruptcy because some creditors or banks may NOT negotiate or settle. You are paying a monthly fee to a company only to find the monthly payment is not paying down the debt but rather the fee. If you owe thousands in debt, it could take YEARS and THOUSANDS to be able to pay down balances.

Unlike debt consolidation, creditors do NOT get a choice of negotiating in a Chapter 13. You use federal law to get help with your bills. Chapter 13 can consolidate your debt based on YOUR budget rather than the terms dictated by the creditors. It’s one payment that is affordable to Y-O-U.

If you are working full time or have a steady source of income and want to pay your debt, filing a Chapter 13 could be a great option. Rather than paying minimums only to use the credit again, you actually pay off what you can afford.

Check out the excerpt below from Attorney Peter Francis Geraci’s, “Complete Book on Bankruptcy.”

All your credit can be paid with one payment to the Court trustee, if you qualify for a Chapter 13 plan. It is possible to consolidate all your outstanding bills into one lower monthly payment, and be protected from credit action during the time you make your payments.

Chapter 13 plans usually run from 3 to 5 years. You can get a rough idea of your maximum Chapter 13 payment by adding up all your bills, dividing by 36 to 60 months. Add 10% to the monthly payment, and the total would be your Chapter 13 payment. This is an over-simplification, and your payment could be less, but this is the basic idea.

Usually, there is no further interest paid to creditors under a Chapter 13 plan. Exceptions to this are cases where you are paying for a house or for a car, or when the creditors could get all their money immediately if you were to liquidate your assets.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is an amazing resource available to people simply struggling. Geraci Law will file the case for no-money down and you get the immediate relief and time to pay down your debt.

Can Bankruptcy Stop Collection Agencies From Calling?

Check out this article (and more!) at https://www.infotapes.com/Articles. The answer is YES.

Yes. You can stop creditors from calling you without filing a bankruptcy.  Just say “Oh, I’m glad you called, where can I send payment in full?”  

If you can’t send payment in full, start sending partial payments, and they’ll stop calling. 

If paying the creditor who is calling, you isn’t in your budget, you can also say “Don’t call me, I can’t pay you, you can sue me but don’t call me.”  They may or may not file a lawsuit against you.

If Geraci Law files your Chapter 7, or Chapter 13 repayment plan, we provide you with your bankruptcy case #.  You then give it to anyone who calls you, and you won’t hear from them again.  Make sure you ask who is calling and who they represent, so you make sure they are listed on your bankruptcy petition. 

If you are planning on filing a bankruptcy with Geraci Law, Keep a pen and paper to take down information on who is calling you, if they are a collection agency or the actual creditor, and the account #, because you want to make sure you list them on your bankruptcy petition.  Unlisted creditors don’t get discharged, so listing all creditors you have is important. 

Or worse, someone has filed a lawsuit against you or your check is being garnished.  You should immediately call us to start your case.  A chapter 7 can eliminate your debt or a chapter 13 will consolidate your debt into a payment you can afford.  Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 stop collection and lawsuits.  

Is your mortgage or rent always late?  Other payments are behind a month or more?  All because you lost your income?  You probably qualify for bankruptcy protection and need a fresh start to get rid of debt and start over.  

What about savings?  Do you have any?  Are your balances not going down even though you make payments.  Are you being turned down for credit?  Many people file bankruptcy to help build savings.  Watch our video on credit scores.  You will learn that studies show bankruptcy will actually increase your credit score and that people who file bankruptcy are likely to have better future financial success.  Why?  Because they got rid of their debt and started over.  

Are you concerned you have assets and cannot file a bankruptcy?  Most people with assets can still file a bankruptcy to eliminate their debts.  Think you make too much money to get rid of your debt?  Chapter 13 gives you interest free repayments on your debt.  Better yet, if your creditor doesn’t file a claim in your case you will receive a discharge without repaying them.  

Let’s do a hypothetical: Bill and Sally have been married for 20 years. Bill recently lost his job in middle management, and is now working at half his former salary, driving a limousine. Sally had an operation, and since there was no insurance, owes $8,000 in unpaid medical bills. To supplement Bill’s income, they have been using credit cards to pay for groceries and other expenses because Sally needed 8 weeks to recover from her operation.  The balances on the credit cards are now $5000, because they used the cards to supplement their lost income.  Sally returned to work, but because of the medical bills and increased credit card balances, They can’t afford the credit card payments anymore.  They want to know, do I qualify for bankruptcy.  

Answer: Of course.  Bill and Sally were hit with some bad luck.  Bill lost his position in middle management and Sally’s operation forced her out of work for a month.  A bankruptcy, either chapter 7 or 13, would benefit Bill and Sally because it will get rid of all their unsecured debt and they will be able to start saving now that Sally is back to work.  

Does any of this sound familiar?  If it does, call right now to get your options.  

But let’s do one more.  Same situation with Bill and Sally, but this time Bill and Sally are 6 months behind on the house. Bill and Sally received foreclosure paperwork and now they need to save the house.  

Answer: Chapter 13 will stop the foreclosure and let Bill and Sally repay the past due amounts over time.  Better yet, the unsecured debts will be paid interest fee.  When the plan is complete Bill and Sally will likely have improved credit for making timely payment in their chapter 13, a MUCH BETTER budget, and no debt.
