Bankruptcy

About 12,000 bankruptcy cases are filed in Colorado each year. We understand that if you are facing financial problems, bankruptcy in Denver is a difficult decision. In fact, studies have shown that over 90% of bankruptcies are caused by one of three reasons:

  1. job loss/disruption of income
  2. medical issues
  3. divorce/domestic relations

In our experience, the other 10% are the result of a wide range of issues including reasons such as unsuccessful business ventures or real estate deals gone sour, like equity skimming.

At Cohen and Cohen, P.C., we focus on getting debtors a fresh start through Chapter 7, 11, or 13 bankruptcies. Our experienced Denver bankruptcy lawyers have over 30 cumulative years of experience working with bankruptcy cases as well as family law and general litigation.

How does filing for bankruptcy work?

The basic process is as follows. You first meet with a bankruptcy lawyer for an initial consultation, which will enable us to assess your specific situation and goals. It is at this meeting where we will recommend pursuing relief under a specific chapter of bankruptcy.

You will learn more about your options, even your non-bankruptcy options, and be able to make an informed decision as to your next steps. If you decide to retain us for our services, you will be provided with a punch list of information that we’ll use to prepare your Denver bankruptcy documents.

We will sometimes offer different pricing options and payment plans depending on your specific situation. Once you have the required documentation, your bankruptcy schedules will be prepared, you will have an opportunity to review and sign them, and your case will be filed.

We will take care of you throughout the bankruptcy discharge process, go to your initial court date, and ensure that your rights are protected along with your peace of mind. Moreover, we won’t abandon you after your case is discharged like other Denver bankruptcy lawyers. Instead, we’ll provide you with tips and reputable contacts for obtaining credit repair or even post-bankruptcy credit.

Can you help me with other legal issues?

Remember, at Cohen and Cohen, P.C., we practice in several other areas than just Colorado bankruptcy, including mediation. As you might have guessed, this helps our Denver bankruptcy practice enormously because bankruptcy as a rule of thumb encompass all types of law.
