Salem and Haverhill Cars and Property Exemptions Lawyers

Bankruptcy isn’t intended to be a punishment for accumulating debt. To the contrary, bankruptcy is a constitutionally-protected debt relief option designed to help people get out from under their debt and move on with their lives.Certain property is exempt from creditor action in both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While property exemptions vary from person to person and case to case, many debtors find that they are able to keep most of their personal property when filing bankruptcy.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth E. Lindauer, we have been representing clients in bankruptcy matters since 1976. We are familiar with both federal exemptions and exemptions for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. To learn more about exempt property in bankruptcy in a free consultation, contact us today.
