Helping You Get The Fresh Start You Need

At Lanser Law Office in Waukesha, Wisconsin, we focus on the following areas of bankruptcy and insolvency law:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy Your best chance at a fresh start may begin with a complete discharge of your debts.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy If you do not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or cannot get the relief you need under Chapter 7, we will assist you in filing a debt reorganization and payment plan.
  • Debt settlements Depending on your circumstances, it may be possible to avoid bankruptcy altogether by exploring options to settle with creditors at discounted amounts or more favorable payment terms.

We are not a mill. We do not do high-volume bankruptcies. We understand that although the relief sought may be the same for many of our clients, we also understand that each case is different. There are different issues, needs and desires. Each client receives individualized attention. Contact our office online or call us at 262-522-2280.
