Westgate Law has a three step approach to financial distress. We start by helping you come up with a plan to deal with your immediate debt crisis, either through bankruptcy, settling your debts or establishing a repayment plan with your creditors.

Then we work with you to execute that plan. After that, we stay with you forever to help you reestablish and maintain your credit, because having excellent credit is a critical component of building a great life for you and your family.

In short, our comprehensive service means we will be the last law firm you ever need to call. And that’s not an empty promise - we stick with you, and help you achieve your lifelong financial goals. Just try to find another firm that wants to work with you after your financial crisis is over! You can’t.
