Hillsboro bankruptcy attorney Bret Knewtson can help you get protection from your creditors. Mr. Knewtson practices exclusively in the area of personal bankruptcy law. His office is located in the Tanasbourne area of Washington County Oregon.
Whether you are a small business or an individual consumer needing chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy protection Mr. Knewtson can help you. If you need to file a chapter 7 or a chapter 13 bankruptcy petition and you live in the Portland Metro area, Mr. Knewtson has the knowledge and experience you need.

Mr. Knewtson charges about the same as other affordable bankruptcy attorneys but because he keeps his practice small he is able to handle your case from start to finish. Other attorneys will pass you from attorney to paralegal and back and forth. Not so with Mr. Knewtson's office.
Mr. Knewtson will take the time to make sure your bankruptcy case is done properly. Most attorneys will meet with you for barely long enough to get the information they need and certainly not long enough to answer your questions. Mr. Knewtson gives his clients the attention their chapter 7 or chapter 13 cases deserve.
Some tips from Mr. Knewtson:
"Watch out for the attorney that gives you a huge packet of paper for you to read and sign instead of advising you properly. When something bad happens, that attorney will point to the stack of paper and your signature and say I told you that would happen. Yes, I also have a small packet of papers for my clients because not everything can be covered in the interview but I do not rely on it as a replacement for taking the time to understand your circumstances."
"It is important to keep in mind that you only get to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection once every eight years. The old business model of signing up clients in mass and pushing them through the court doors was risky even under the old laws but under the new law you need to get the job done right. You need an attorney who will personally handle your bankruptcy case from start to finish."
Recent changes in the Bankruptcy Law:
Many clients are concerned about The Bankruptcy Reform Act. The Bankruptcy Reform Act is not a bar to filing for bankruptcy protection. While it has made getting that protection more difficult and more expensive, bankruptcy protection is still available to small businesses and individuals but it is more important than ever to hire an attorney willing to give your case the time it deserves.
