Knowledgeable Baton Rouge Bankruptcy Attorney Helps Clients Struggling with Debt

Diligent Louisiana lawyer skillfully handles a variety of bankruptcy matters

When debt is overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight, talking to an attorney about your legal options could be the way to start fresh. At Derren S. Johnson & Associates, APLC in Baton Rouge, I understand the stress of insurmountable debt and represent clients throughout Louisiana’s Middle District in several types of consumer and business bankruptcy cases. Whether you have overdue bills, a mortgage you can no longer afford or you’re facing continual harassment from bill collectors, I have over 35 years of experience and will carefully review your situation and give you the information you need to make informed and sound decisions.

Experienced debt relief attorney helps you pursue a fresh financial start

I am committed to securing the financial relief clients need to move forward and offer proven and effective representation to residents and businesses in several types of bankruptcy matters, including:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy — In some cases, repaying debts, even at a reduced rate, is not practically viable. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a quick and straightforward option designed to completely eliminate or discharge most eligible debts, and I am highly skilled at helping those who qualify for this option use this process to relieve their financial burdens.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy — If the goal is to keep certain assets or you still have substantial monthly income, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often the best route to resolve your situation as it allows you to enter into a three-to-five-year repayment plan. I have extensive experience representing clients in these cases.

Debt can take over your life and bring negative consequences if it is not appropriately addressed. The law has options for individuals facing significant financial issues, and I am adept at producing positive results for clients throughout the bankruptcy process.
