“Very pleasant experience in light of an undesirable situation. After a divorce and multiple surgeries, I was sinking under my debt. I turned to Hackett Law Firm for help and advice. I reached out over a year with questions as I weighed my options and never felt pressured.
In the end, bankruptcy was my best option and Rosemary was amazing to work with. She was always available and willing to help me get questions answered, and always showed compassion and respect. I would recommend them to anyone who is faced with financial distress, and know you will be partnering with one of the best.”

I understand that facing bankruptcy is a stressful and scary thing. Most of my clients have been struggling for years trying to avoid going bankrupt and the thought of even speaking to a bankruptcy attorney can be daunting. We believe my job is to understand exactly what kinds of debt issues the client is facing and then explain to them all of their debt relief options.
If it appears the best option is a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy I then explain the entire process and create a game plan for the client on how we can move forward to get them much needed debt relief.
What types of bankruptcies are available for individuals?
Most people seeking bankruptcy protection file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
If I am broke, how can I pay for a bankruptcy lawyer to file bankruptcy for me?
We understand that our clients are seeking bankruptcy protection because they are struggling financially. Our bankruptcy law firm offers reasonable fees and payment plans. At your initial consultation we can give our clients a quote on their fees and a “game plan” on how they can get us retained and make payments on their fees if needed.
Will I lose all of my assets if I file bankruptcy?
It is actually pretty rare for a debtor to lose assets or have things sold during a bankruptcy. There are several exemptions, or protections that will protect many assets. Our experienced Vancouver bankruptcy lawyers can tell you from the start if any of your assets are at risk of being liquidated. If so, our attorney can also go over options and ideas of how to best protect your assets through a bankruptcy. This may include some pre-bankruptcy planning that can get very complex. You will want one of our experienced bankruptcy attorneys to help guide you through this if needed.
Do I go to court and see a judge if I file bankruptcy?
No. You will be required to attend a “meeting of creditors” and answer some questions from a bankruptcy Trustee. Your bankruptcy attorney from Hackett Law Firm will appear at this meeting with you. Despite being called a “meeting of creditors”, it is rare for creditors to attend these hearings and ask you questions.
How do I know if bankruptcy is right for me?
If you find yourself struggling with any type of debt and having trouble making ends meet, it makes a lot of sense to at least explore the option of bankruptcy. The best way to determine if bankruptcy is right for you is to do a little bit of research, and then meet with a local, experienced bankruptcy attorney to go over your options. Most of us offer free consultations and are happy to discuss your situation and explore options to help you get some debt relief.
