Will I have to appear before a judge?

In most cases, the only time you go to court is to attend your meeting of creditors. This meeting is conducted by your trustee (not a judge) and usually lasts less than 15 minutes. Sometimes, it is necessary for a Chapter 13 debtor to appear at a court hearing. While this is relatively rare, it is not something to be nervous about. Bankruptcy attorney Michael Ryan Jones and The Jones Law Firm have extensive experience in bankruptcy court and will zealously advocate on your behalf. We will make sure you completely understand what is happening in your case and what each proceeding will involve.
