Amazing service!
Salem Law llc did an amazing job helping me with deciding to file & eventually with my bankruptcy. They explained everything in great detail & helped every step of the way. They even checked in after my bankruptcy was finished to make sure I understood what happened & what comes next. I will recommend their business & services to everyone I know.

Legal Answers
11 Questions Answered

Q. Can I bankrupt one item from my credit - an eviction?
A: Dear Asker, The good thing is that most of us (bankruptcy attorneys) provide free consultations regarding all types of debt issues. Based on your question there is a lot to discuss and brainstorm about and you will definitely come away feeling more empowered about this eviction situation and have a clear idea of your options and steps you might want to take. Give one of us a call :).
Q. My attorney won't return my calls. I've already paid her for bankruptcy services.
A: Dear Asker, If you can not get ahold of your attorney via her phone or email you can contact the Oregon State Bar about reaching out to her to resolve any misunderstanding or fee dispute. You can call oregon legal aid to discuss potential free bankruptcy if you qualify for their services.
Q. I have a notice of foreclosure with a sale date of March 18th if I pay the past due amount of $13, 000 Wil it reinstate
A: Yes - but I warn/highly encourage you to contact the foreclosure trustee or attorney and ask them for an up to date reinstatement quote when you are ready to reinstate and ask them for instructions as to where to send the reinstatement funds. If you just make a lump sum payment to the loan servicer there may be processing issues and if you are even a dollar short they may still validly hold the foreclosure sale.
