We Understand Financial Distress.

Forman Holt assists all types of people in financial distress – even the seemingly well-to-do and affluent. Our attorneys understand that it is often an event such as losing a job, falling ill or getting a divorce that drives individuals who have generally been financially secure to seek bankruptcy relief.

After consultations with our firm – which don’t always result in bankruptcy filings – “there’s a huge sense of relief” for many individuals.

We are a debt relief agency.
We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

Our firm has helped hundreds of individuals and businesses facing financial distress. Our attorneys are available to answer the many questions and concerns clients may have about bankruptcy and any other alternatives available to address their financial difficulties, and whether a bankruptcy filing is the correct course of action.

I am proud of our unique offering to work with our clients to look at all alternative courses of action before deciding to proceed with a bankruptcy filing. Financially distressed businesses often aren’t aware of all their options besides a Chapter 11 filing. – Charles M. Forman, Managing Member, Forman Holt

It may be that bankruptcy is not the desired or best option.  Whatever the issue, as schooled as we are in filing bankruptcy, if the facts warrant, we are equally capable in avoiding bankruptcy for our clients.
