People across Hawaii find themselves in difficult financial situations for all types of reasons. If you want to stop the foreclosure of your home or put an end to creditor harassment, we can help you work towards debt relief. While the laws changed in 2005, there are still a number of bankruptcy options left for individuals, providing immediate and long-term relief, including:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: The majority of bankruptcy cases in Hawaii are chapter 7. If you pass the means test and qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can be debt free within months. We will help you identify property exempt from the sale, so you can discharge your debt without losing critical assets.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: If you do not qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy, or you would like to keep your home, we can help you restructure your debt into a payment plan you can afford through chapter 13 bankruptcy.
  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: While chapter 11 is set up for businesses, we can help individuals get the relief they deserve when they fail to qualify for chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy.

You may not know that 401ks are exempt from bankruptcy, contact an experienced attorney before you drain your retirement funds.


There are a lot of options within the bankruptcy process to help you maintain as much financial strength as possible. We can help you identify any possible exemptions and guide you through pre-bankruptcy planning. Taking a close look at your financial situation, we will come up with the plan that is best for you.
