Ivey, McClellan, Gatton & Talcott



Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyers in Greensboro & Eden

Greensboro Personal Bankruptcy Lawyer

 At Ivey, McClellan, Gatton & Siegmund our bankruptcy attorneys have been helping individuals and couples with difficult financial issues for over seventy years. While the reason why people come to visit Ivey McClellan are wide and vary drastically, from credit card debts, tax debts, foreclosures, judgments, lawsuits, medical bills, and all the way to debts incurred as a result of separation and divorce, all clients leave Ivey McClellan in a better and more informed position than when they start.

A Personal bankruptcy Lawyer at your Side 


Some attorneys will hear about an individual’s financial difficulties, and quickly recommend a “Chapter 13” or a “Chapter 7” filing. We at Ivey McClellan, however, believe in molding the law to fit your needs, not necessarily the other way around. As a result, we take a more individualistic approach to the practice of consumer restructuring. We are more interested in creating a custom solution for your needs, that may or may not involve a bankruptcy filing, in order to get you out of the problems you are facing.


 Ivey McClellan will often represent individuals in “debt consolidation” or “debt settlement” programs, in an attempt to avoid a bankruptcy filing and settle your debt for a fraction of what you currently owe. However, these programs are not always successful, and don’t always provide the greatest benefits to you as an individual. As a result, our personal bankruptcy attorneys are prepared to take a multitude of different avenues to best represent you. These avenues may involve defending you in lawsuits in the State or Federal court systems throughout the state, in addition to contacting your creditors in an attempt to create settlement options. Only when these options fail, or litigation is unsuccessful, are we prepared to represent you in either a Chapter 13 Reorganization, a Chapter 7 Liquidation, or occasionally a Chapter 11 Reorganization.

Making Sure Your Financial Interests are Taken Care of 


If at all possible, we prefer to avoid a bankruptcy filing, if doing so will create greater benefits to you than filing would. However, bankruptcy often creates significant advantages to individuals, saving them thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run. Due to the advantages that are possible, it is important that you contact us to set up an appointment with a personal bankruptcy attorney to discuss your specific situation, where we can explain the advantages and disadvantages of the multiple options that are available to you. Only until we have the opportunity to hear all of the nuances that make your case special will we be able to make a recommendation to solve your financial difficulties, and preserve that which you hold dear.
