Attorney Miller quoted in Journal Sentinel regarding decline in Bankruptcy Filings

Bankruptcies ease in U.S., state

By Paul Gores of the Journal Sentinel

Be Careful When Discussing Bankruptcy With Other Professionals

A bankruptcy has an effect on many parts of one's life and therefore people like your accountant, financial advisor, etc. might end up giving you some advice or sharing a story about someone they know who has filed. While these confidants are usually trying to be helpful, beware: their advice isn't always accurate, and it is always best to discuss your situation with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney to get the right answers.

We can Lower your car payment through bankruptcy

In you own a car that you owe more than it is worth, our lawyers may be able to help lower your car payments. Our lawyers can use a Chapter 7 bankruptcy redemption to lower your payment. Many people are forced into bankruptcy because a car loan company has over-financed a vehicle. A high car payment can make it impossible to afford your car. We may be able to force your car lender to accept a payoff on your vehicle for only the value of your vehicle.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting this morning that the number of new foreclosure cases in Milwaukee dropped 8% in June compared to foreclosure filings in June 2010.

HUD to give away $1 billion to struggling homeowners-ANOTHER OPTION TO HELP SAVE YOUR HOME

In June, the HUD launched $1 billion Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program, or EHLP. This program is one that targets homeowners who are among the most difficult to help; those who fell behind on their mortgage payments because of job loss or unexpected medical bills. This latest government program was supposed to start last year, but implementation delays mean that HUD must spend all of its $1 billion by the end of September 2011. This program will help home owners repay mortgage payments that are behind.
