|Will I lose any of my property in bankruptcy?
It depends upon the value of your property. Overall most people will end up being able to keep all or most of their property in bankruptcy. If the bankruptcy exemptions are applied correctly, usually a person can protect all or the majority of his or her property by using either the Federal bankruptcy exemptions or a particular state’s exemptions. Only some states allow the use of the Federal exemptions for bankruptcy and both Oregon and Washington are states that allow it. Also Oregon and Washington give their respective citizens the choice to use the state specific exemptions for bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy exemptions are laws that allow you to protect specific types of property (for example exemptions for: vehicles, household goods, tools of trade, homestead, retirement, etc.). Which exemption laws you are allowed to use relate to where you have lived in the last few years. Every person’s situation is different and an experienced bankruptcy attorney can ensure that that the applicable bankruptcy exemptions are applied to the fullest extent available to protect your property in bankruptcy.

I must say Scott is they best to work with, he has gone way out of his way to help my wife and I with a chapter 7, he was amazing to work with, if you plan to file you must check with Scott first, he even has 2 locations, Scott would get 10 stars if it would let me rate that high.

We hired Mr. Hutchinson in early 2011 to represent us in filing for bankruptcy. I had interviewed two other attorneys in Portland prior to selecting him. Mr. Hutchinson is a very professional and knowledgeable attorney. The filing process went very smoothly for and we were discharged successfully. We are very happy that we found him.- Jody H.
No one wants to be in the position to have to file for bankruptcy. It's humiliating no matter what the circumstances. My experience with Mr. Hutchinson was excellent. I was made to feel like a person and not just another case. Not only was I filing for bankruptcy, to top it off my case was extremely difficult (which I am told is highly unusual) as I was right on the border between being able to file a 7 or 13. It created a lot of additional work and hassle for Mr. Hutchinson. Regardless of how frustrating that may have been, I was consistently treated with respect, patience and professionalism throughout the entire process. He went more than the extra mile for me. If you find you are in a position to file bankruptcy I would strongly suggest Mr. Hutchinson's services.
