Decades Of Experience Helping People Get Back On Their Feet

Even those who plan and budget carefully can find it difficult to keep up with their financial obligations following a layoff, divorce, unexpected home expense or medical emergency. Debt can quickly become overwhelming when savings are not enough to meet these challenges and credit cards are used to make ends meet.

At Ast & Schmidt, P.C., our attorneys have helped area residents escape unsustainable levels of debt for decades. We understand just how overwhelming it can be to face a growing pile of bills with no relief in sight. We can explain how filing a bankruptcy differs from other options like debt settlement or consolidation and develop a strategy designed to help you get the most out of whatever path you decide to take.

During your free initial consultation at our office in Morristown, we will do more than simply hand you an intake form to fill out. We will ask about the circumstances that led to your current problems and work with you to put together a plan that both addresses your present situation and provides a solid financial foundation for the future.
