My name is Luke DeSmet, and I'm an attorney with the Parrish Kruidenier Dunn Boles Gribble Parrish Gentry & Fisher, L.L.P. law firm in Des Moines, Iowa. I assist people in filing for bankruptcy, and I represent people filing for bankruptcy under Chapters 7, 11, and 13.
Many individuals and families run into financial difficulties, and this is even more true in this difficult economy. Most people want to pay the debts they owe, but unexpected circumstances such as medical bills, unemployment or underemployment, wage garnishments, or other circumstances make this difficult or impossible to accomplish. I understand the struggles and difficult decisions that families face when they are in financial difficulty.
Whether your bank or landlord is trying to force you out of your home, a creditor’s garnishment is cutting into your budget for food and other necessities, or creditors call so frequently that the stress of their collection attempts seems overwhelming, bankruptcy can be a useful tool in addressing your debts.
