Are you struggling financially and seeking debt relief or credit counseling? Are you looking for the right bankruptcy lawyer in Middletown, Ohio?

You’ve come to the right website.

If you live in Middletown Ohio, and you are struggling with bills you just can’t pay, it’s natural to consider filing a bankruptcy. Finding a Middletown Ohio bankruptcy lawyer by searching the internet for “ bankruptcy attorney near me, Middletown Ohio,” is a good place to start. The research will return a list of attorneys who file bankruptcy in Middletown or who have offices in Middletown Ohio.

Do you really want to limit your search for bankruptcy representation to Middletown Ohio?

Maybe not.

Let me share a personal story about professional services in Middletown Ohio.

Like bankruptcy attorneys, you can find surgeons in Middletown Ohio. Some of them are experienced and have practiced many years in many different localities. Others are relatively new and don’t have this kind of experience. Recently I found myself in the Atrium medical Center and was admitted for severe abdominal pain.

The young surgeon who attended me told me he knew exactly what to do and was getting ready to schedule me for surgery in the morning.

“Not so fast!” I said, “I want to speak with the old doctor.” “You see, I’m an old bankruptcy lawyer and I know that sometimes an older, more experienced and wiser professional has a different answer.”

And, in fact, that’s exactly what I got.

When I spoke to the older doctor he said sometimes these things just work themselves out. Let’s give it another day or so and I’ll keep an eye on you and we’ll see if we can avoid surgery. There’s more to the story, of course but at the end of the day I didn’t need to have surgery.

Your situation might be a lot like this, and I don’t want to see you end up with the wrong result, a surgery you don’t need or the wrong kind of surgery. What I mean is this, I have been practicing for over 30 years and can tell you that many of the cases that I see, including second opinions that I give, they look at first blush to a younger less experienced attorney to be one kind of the case but, because I’ve handled over 20,000 of these cases in my career, I see things differently because of my vast experience.

I’ve been practicing bankruptcy law Middletown Ohio for over 30 years. I’m very familiar with Middletown’s history, Middletown’s economy, and the sad state of decline that the Middletown economy is now experiencing.

For this reason, I have helped hundreds of people in Middletown file personal bankruptcy. However, I’ve also helped a number of people in Middletown Ohio avoid bankruptcy. That’s because I’m not just a board-certified bankruptcy specialist, I’m also a certified credit counselor. In fact, I’m the only triple-certified specialist in Ohio.

My goal is to help you find the right solution to your financial problems, not just file bankruptcy for you and “toss you back out into the street.” Not schedule you for surgery without careful consideration of all the alternatives.

Does that sound harsh? Sometimes reality is harsh.

Remember what a AK did to all of its employees? Kicked them out into the street for a year and a half. So too did Sorg, Target, Worthmore, and some of the other local employers who, without any warning, simply close their doors.

Think twice. Get an experienced, multi-certified specialist opinion first.

Many people I counsel are surprised that I can help them find ways to avoid bankruptcy altogether.

There are many options, and bankruptcy is only one of them. It is not the answer for everyone. That’s why I became a certified credit counselor, as well as a board-certified bankruptcy specialist. So that I can assure my clients I have carefully examined all of their options.

In fact, I always look at six different options for everyone I counsel.

And, whatever option you choose, you need follow-up and after-care.

Using my surgery example, assuming that somebody did need surgery they also need follow-up care.

So too with bankruptcy. After filing, you will need to have your credit restored.

That’s why I created my special program to help you quickly recover your credit after bankruptcy. In fact, that’s why I became a credit counselor. I want to make sure that everyone knows that filing a bankruptcy is not a total solution.

You’ve heard the saying, “bankruptcy is a fresh start.”

That’s true as far as it goes. But it’s only a start.

To get the results that you deserve, you need to finish what you start.

My way of finishing what you start is to help you rebuild your credit, and I can do that amazingly quickly in most cases.

So, if you are looking for a “bankruptcy attorney near me” and live in Middletown Ohio, remember that Middletown is a small city in many of the attorneys in Middletown don’t specialize in bankruptcy, or if they do, they are limited to bankruptcy and are not certified credit counselors. They don’t offer the after-care and follow-up that you need to finish the job the bankruptcy of starts.

To find out more, just request a free phone appointment. I’ll review your options with you, all of them, and explain what you can do to quickly turn your finances around, restore your peace of mind, and rebuild your credit.

I went looking for an atty to assist me with what direction I need to pursue pertaining to my finances. I finally went to Rick West due to a... referral and I had to look no further. He explained which direction would best suit me and how it would all end up. I had so many medical bills that I was just in tears and so distraught when I came to see Rick West, but with his guidance I left out full of hope and confidence that I had not known for a long time. He is really a kind person and so educated to help regarding financial issues and gives us hope that there is a more

When I lost my job in 2012 and realized that I would be facing some financial difficulties, I contacted Richard West and had a free, in depth,... consultation. I still had many options available and we decided that Bankruptcy was not the first choice at that time. Unfortunately, my inability to find a job over the following year changed everything. I lost my house in a foreclosure and the credit card people were calling daily. In 2014 I was still unemployed so I went back to Richard West and we decided that in my circumstance, filing Chapter 7 would be an appropriate solution to my debt.Richard West and his staff were AWESOME! I was never “Judged” for my financial mistakes and they always treated me with respect and empathy. During the entire Bankruptcy process, I was provided guidance on avoiding unnecessary debt in the future and how to start rebuilding my credit ASAP after the discharge of my more

This guy, Rick West, assisted me in more ways than he knows. And I am truly grateful. I came to him for a second opinion when I began to distrust my... lawyer that I actually hired. Rick took time out of his day - the same day I reached out to him to assist. He set up an appointment and moved quickly and was flexible. I sent him an email from my other lawyer and he responded within the hour and calmed my anxiety almost instantly. When meeting for the first time, He gave me the advice and/or analysis I had been looking for and settled some major fears I had concerning my case. Rick actually cared about what was happening with my current situation. He explained in detail what I was looking at and gave me different scenarios explaining the pro/con for everything. Rick - has won my confidence completely and when I move forward with everything, he will be my guy! If you are looking for someone that actually cares about your situation and will be honest with you...not trying to pick pocket the money you don't have...I'm telling you now...pick this guy. I wish I had have found Rick before I started this more
