American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
The recently enacted "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" contains a wide-ranging tax package that includes tax relief for low and moderate-income wage earners, individuals and families with college expenses, and home and car purchasers. I have written an overview of the more widely applicable tax changes affecting individuals and families in the new law. Click here to see this information.
Bankruptcy For Honest People
Job loss? Medical bills? Credit cards?

In my 20 years of being a lawyer, those are the most common causes of Chapter 7 filings.

If you have those problems, or short on "cash flow" for any other reason, you are welcome to call my office for a free office visit.

We will discuss:
1. Your bills.
2. Your paycheck.
3. Your assets, the Homestead Exemption, Vehicle Exemptions, Pension & 401k Exemptions, and other Exemptions under federal or state law.

Still with me? The first visit is at no-charge and all meetings with me are protected by the "Attorney-Client privilege."

Not sure? You can put your debts into this calculator to determine how long it will take for you to pay the bills in full at www.bankrate.com.

Finally, just because you come in to discuss your debt situation with me, that does not mean that you are required to file. You have the right to find out what your legal rights are under the Federal Law.

Update: the mortgage and economic crisis has made its way to Albuquerque, and this is the most common concern from recent callers. If you "want out" of this mortgage mess or if you are in a foreclosure, we can discuss this as well.
