Filing for bankruptcy can be a difficult task. During this fragile time, attorneys at Hoglund Law are here to help guide you through this challenging process.
But how can we help?

We will also tell you what to expect during the bankruptcy process. Each case has its own difficulties and risks, we can give you an insight on what your case’s difficulties are and how to best avoid any issues arising from those difficulties.
Our bankruptcy lawyers will provide sound legal advice, prepare your paperwork from start to finish, and guide you through the bankruptcy process with ease. To prepare your paperwork, your attorney will need information for your file. You’ll need to provide your financial information to your attorney, some of which consists of your income, expenses, and debt information.
Furthermore, an attorney can help you at your hearings by providing legal advice and preparing you for any questions you may be asked. There are most likely going to be one hearing during this process. That hearing is called a 341 Meeting of Creditors. Also, there could be additional hearings depending on the Chapter you file for. Those hearings are a Bankruptcy Chapter 13 Confirmation Hearing and a Bankruptcy Chapter 7 Reaffirmation Hearing. There could also be other motion or objection hearings that could be filed by you, your creditors, or the trustees.
Attorneys can be a useful guide during this process. The bankruptcy process is one that should be taken seriously since it can alter your financial standing significantly. An attorney can change the outcome for the better during this process.

Social Security Disability Attorneys Who Take a Stand for the Injured and Disabled.
Hoglund Law practices exclusively in the area of Social Security Disability, we would be happy to discuss your case with you, without charge. We are able to work with you at any point in your case, from assisting you with your initial application, filing your request for reconsideration, requesting a hearing before an administrative law judge or filing an appeal with the Appeals Council.
Should I Speak to a Social Security Disability Lawyer Before Applying for SSDI?
We strongly advise people to contact a disability attorney as soon as possible – and certainly before requesting a hearing – as a good attorney will need adequate time to prepare the case, review the administrative file and request copies of outstanding medical records in order to effectively and to zealously represent the client at the hearing.
Sooner is Better
Again, the sooner you contact an attorney, the sooner he or she will be able to take the steps necessary to develop your case. Note, however, if you have already received your notice from Social Security advising you that it has denied your claim, you will have only 60 days to file your appeal. Do not wait until the last minute to contact an attorney, because once this 60-day period has expired you may lose your right to appeal!
Even if you have not yet applied for Social Security benefits, it is a good idea to speak with an attorney before filing your claim. An attorney can give you advice about what you need to do to prove your disability, request copies of your medical records and make sure these records are included in your claim file, request that your treating doctor provide a detailed report of what you can and cannot do because of your impairment, and ensure that any necessary appeals are filed timely.
