Gantz Associates: Practice Areas
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Gantz Associates is dedicated to providing legal counsel at affordable rates to Michigan residents in these practice areas:
Consumers can avoid unnecessary foreclosures and stop foreclosure “rescue” scams that promise the world in exchange for your money. Gantz Associates helps homeowners explore the real options available to keep your home and interact with your lender in a lasting and mutually beneficial way. Our approach is unique and proven – we will help you keep your home at all costs, whenever possible. “We will not make promises we can’t keep,” says Adam Gantz. “If we can’t help you, we will tell you the truth.”
Filing for bankruptcy can be a saving grace to help you resolve debts in a manageable way. Bankruptcy law is one way to allow those in debt to free themselves from financial mess and start with a clean slate. At Gantz Associates, we guide our clients toward the best form of bankruptcy for their situation and help them get back on their feet. Gantz Associates guides clients in filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (where you wipe out your debt and walk away) and Chapter 13 bankruptcy (which enables you to save your home and build a repayment plan).
