Hayward Bankruptcy Lawyers

At the Law Offices of Melanie Tavare, we understand the financial stress and pressure that people can face. Many people believe that filing for bankruptcy is something to avoid at all costs, but the truth is that bankruptcy protection can be a powerful tool to help wipe out your debt, rebuild your credit, and get you back on your feet for a better financial future.

Bankruptcy protection provides a powerful defense from the daily harassment of debt collectors and can help stop wage garnishments, foreclosure of your home, repossession of your vehicle, bank levies, tax liens, and lawsuits. Whatever led you to consider bankruptcy, whether it's the loss of a job, the threat of foreclosure, or simply not being able to make ends meet in these hard economic times, you are not alone.
