Read our Recent Bankruptcy Case Results

The Benenati Law Firm as eliminated over a billion dollars in debt since opening its doors in late 2008. It is hard to express what it feels like to be able to Press the Restart Button® on your life. No debt. No stress. No worries. It is kind of like a Do-Over®! I know because I personally filed for bankruptcy way back when I was in law school.

Our law firm has begun compiling case results for our bankruptcy filings to give you a brief glimpse of a typical bankruptcy case and how much debt is typically wiped out. In almost all cases, cars and homes are protected and the only thing that clients lose is their debt.

The beauty of bankruptcy is you are made aware of everything that MAY happen BEFORE we file the case. That way you will make an informed decision about whether you want to file or not. No surprises.

People always ask – how will I know whether my cases will be successful. Let&rsquo’s put it this way. We will not file the bankruptcy if we do not think it will be successful! Read and see if your situation is similar to one or more of our clients
