I highly recommend Mr. Zimmermann as an attorny. I recently purchased an investment property and boy was he helpful. He was easily available, very clear in explaining various concepts, laws and regulations, and provided very helpful tips on negotiating. I found his fee to be more than reasonable espcecially given the incredible availability he provides. In addition, he's very flexible, and he has first-person experience with various trade workers, so that when we needed to have some feature evaluated, it was arranged lightning fast. The fee was reasonable, the results were thorough and the outcome was extremely good. I was, honestly, like a babe in the woods in navigating this transaction, but with Jim taking the time to walk me through everything and explain/answer any questions I had, it was a completely pleasant experience. And I got the property I wanted for the price I was willing to pay. Let's not overlook the staff: totally helpful and knowledgeable. 5 Stars in my book.
What Happens To Your Credit Score In Bankruptcy?
- posted: Aug. 24, 2017
Active judgments, collections accounts, charge offs and delinquent debts are reported to the credit reporting agencies. These will have a devastating effect on your credit score. Your credit score will suffer greatly, often dropping hundreds of points. The problem is intensified over time as these derogatory reports linger and just sit on your report. A bankruptcy filing prevents creditors from continuing any such reporting under the regulations of the automatic stay. While the bankruptcy will have a negative affect, sometimes that is far outweighed when the derogatory report is not permitted to continue. Your credit score will have only one direction to go after your bankruptcy — up. If not immediately, most people see a rebound of their credit score in only months. Usually, within 12 to 24 months, your credit score can be high enough to qualify for a many kinds of new credit, even a purchase money mortgage.
