Kankakee County Bankruptcy Lawyer Serving all of Northeast Illinois.

For too many people, news of the improving economy seems like an illusion. Living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to pay the bills on time but somehow only falling further behind, hardworking people wonder if they will ever get out of what seems like the endless cycle of debt.

If this sounds like you, there is help, and I am here to help you get it.

I am Kankakee attorney Brian G. Hiatt, and for more than 15 years, I have worked hard to give my Illinois clients the second chance they need. I know it is not easy for my clients to admit they need legal help, let alone seek it out, and at my firm, I provide legal advice that is sympathetic to those who have lived with debt for a long time — often, years and years. I am not here to judge you; my goal and my passion is to show my clients that bankruptcy can work for them.

Understanding How Bankruptcy Can Help You

Bankruptcy protection does not have to be an endless, intimidating process. In fact, many of my clients are pleasantly surprised to learn how quickly they can consolidate and eliminate their debts through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy and begin rebuilding their finances. I am with my clients at every step of the process, and when issues related to a foreclosure or the impact of a recent divorce arise, I can guide them and help them make the smartest long-term decision. Another important advantage of hiring a lawyer to handle your bankruptcy is that relief from creditor harassment begins immediately. If you have had enough of the endless phone calls and threatening letters, you know that this will offer a significant short-term benefit to you and your loved ones.
