BENEFITS OF BANKRUPTCY
Struggling with debt can be overwhelming. Constant harassment from bill collectors, the threat of lawsuit, foreclosure or repossession can leave you feeling short of breath or lying awake at night.
Bankruptcy offers immediate relief and can eliminate most debts in as few as 4 months. There are also many options for homeowners facing foreclosure, all of which provide a temporary delay of state court proceedings.
About Leah E. Capece
Since 2012 I have devoted much of my practice to providing debt relief and foreclosure prevention to individuals and small businesses throughout New Jersey.
Harassing phone calls, intimidating collection letters, and the threat of foreclosure and repossession can become overwhelming and frustrating; Finding the right solution can be confusing.
For anyone experiencing this kind of financial hardship, it is important to know that help is readily available. Therefore, I make it my priority to bring relief and understanding to my clients, quickly and affordably. Together with one-on-one counseling, bankruptcy provides a fresh start to immediately improve almost any situation.
I grew up in the “Peterstown” neighborhood of Elizabeth, where my family has called home since 1901. Before starting my own practice, I worked for various law firms after graduating, with Honors, from Rutgers Law School-Newark in 2008. Prior to law school, I obtained a B.A. in Criminal Justice from Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, graduating with High Honors.
I devote many hours each year to the Honorable Morris Stern Pro Bono Bankruptcy Project and attend the annual Bench-Bar Conference for continuing bankruptcy education.
