Charleston South Carolina Bankruptcy Attorney 


Experienced Charleston Bankruptcy Lawyer

I am Ingrid H. Rudolph, bankruptcy attorney. From my law office in Charleston, South Carolina, I help people throughout the Charleston metro area including Summerville, Mount Pleasant and North Charleston, obtain a fresh start through bankruptcy. As a solo bankruptcy lawyer in South Carolina, I work personally with you from start to finish to help you take back control of your finances and your life.

Many people believe that filing for bankruptcy means that they have failed financially. This is simply not true. Perhaps you lost your job or you or a family member suffered a serious, expensive medical emergency. Maybe you just overspent on your credit cards. That's ok. Life happens. My job as your bankruptcy lawyer is to help you move on instead of dwelling on the past.

As far as the practice of bankruptcy law, I know of no other area of law where so much good can be accomplished in such a short time. I have handled many bankruptcy cases in the Charleston area and I can quickly solve problems that have kept my clients sick and sleepless with worry and fear. In South Carolina most bankruptcy cases are discharged in as little as four months.

While it is true that filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will lower your credit score, rebuilding your credit is fairly easy. By consistently making payments to credit cards and other accounts on time, you could raise your score in as little as six months to a year. Although each case is different, filing for bankruptcy allows you to obtain the fresh start you need to begin again.

I'll make your Bankruptcy Easy for You

I work one on one with you through the entire bankruptcy process. If you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as your bankruptcy attorney, I will handle all the paperwork and work with you to protect your assets from repossession and garnishment. If you're behind on your mortgage, we can protect your home from foreclosure by filing for bankruptcy, whether you choose to file under Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 repayment plan. Whatever the issue, my Charleston South Carolina clients appreciate the personable, approachable attitude I bring to helping them achieve their goals.

Many people put off calling a bankruptcy lawyer to handle their legal issues until the problem becomes seemingly insurmountable. However, a skilled bankruptcy attorney knows that with the right tools and effective service, any problem can be reduced to simple steps.

As your bankruptcy lawyer, I take a collaborative, personable approach. I work with clients to overcome stressful issues such as high debt or divorce. From my office in Charleston, South Carolina, I help people throughout the Charleston metro area. No matter the issues, as your bankruptcy attorney I desire to help you resolve them in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
