From our Mount Laurel, NJ location our attorneys assist in the following fields of law:

New Jersey Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer:

Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in New Jersey is more common than people think.  Although New Jersey is among the states with the highest income, it is also the 9th most expensive state to live in according to Reader’s Digest https://www.rd.com/culture/most-expensive-states-to-live-in/.  Due to high property taxes, insurance rates, rents and other expenses, there is not a lot of room for unexpected expenses that will undoubtedly arise.  When there is an emergency, increased expenses, unexpected loss of income or expenses related to a growing family, many families in New Jersey are forced to rely on credit cards and personal loans to get by.  The incurrence of debt puts an additional financial burden on families in New Jersey which they struggle to pay for years.  With credit card interest averaging 21.28% according to The Balance https://www.thebalance.com/average-credit-card-interest-rate-4772408, many families are forced to fall behind on debts.  Due to collection lawsuits, decrease in credit scores, credit harassment, failure to secure more credit, failure to obtain car loans and/or a mortgage at a competitive interest rate residents of New Jersey turn to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy to obtain a fresh financial start.  

New Jersey Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer:

Any Chapter of Bankruptcy is based on affordability, however Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is the ultimate example of a debt reorganization based on affordability.  In New Jersey, it is not uncommon for home owners to fall delinquent on their mortgage, in fact New Jersey has almost double the national average of homeowners who are delinquent on their mortgage according to Bankrate, https://www.bankrate.com/mortgages/state-mortgage-delinquency-rates/.  Ultimately the mortgage delinquency results in a foreclosure proceedings.  Most Chapter 13 Bankruptcy proceedings that we see are a result of a mortgage foreclosure action.  A Chapter 13 allows a Petitioner to stop any future sale of their home and remain in the property.  The Petitioner will repay the mortgage arrears back by putting the arrears in an extended plan up to five years long.  Also, any other unsecured debts (credit cards, personal loans, medical debts, etc.) will be repaid based on affordability only. 

Another common reason that a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is filed in New Jersey is to engage in a compromise with creditors based on “affordability.”  Unlike debt consolidation that only looks at how much debt you have, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy looks at “how much can you afford.”  Meaning, using in Bankruptcy the court will look at income, household size and expenses to determine how much is anything is left on a regular and monthly basis can be distributed to the creditors.  Creditors in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy are most often paid only cents on the dollar at 0% interest resulting in lesser expenses relating to debt on a monthly basis and greater saving for the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy filers.

New Jersey Mortgage Foreclosure Defense and Collection Defense

Bankruptcy is not always the best option for a client.  When a client is facing a collection lawsuit or mortgage foreclosure action it may be the best option to defend the suit or engage in a settlement with the creditor.  If there is only one creditor or one lawsuit, it is most beneficial to explore a settlement arrangement with the creditor prior to a Bankruptcy proceeding.  Furthermore, where a legal meritorious defense exists, for example, an agreement has been reached in writing before the lawsuit was filed or payments were made to the Creditor and not credited a filed defense to the litigation is warranted.

  • review rating 5  I'm very happy with Saked and Cooper. While mine was a small case, Brad helped me negotiate and settle a lingering debt dispute at a very fair price and in a timely fashion. I couldn't have gotten a better result from anyone and am more than impressed with the service I received.

When Brads quotes a flat rate, he means it. If you want a successful outcome to your bankruptcy, Sadek and Cooper is the firm to choose. .

  • review rating 5  I was going through a very hard, stressful time in my life, resulting in having to file for bankruptcy. Everyone at this firm was friendly, knowledgeable and went above and beyond for me. Matthew Lazarus was my attorney. He went the extra mile even a year after my bankruptcy was closed to tie up loose ends. I highly recommend Sadek and Cooper!!

  • review rating 5  It's not enough words to put this in how amazed , appreciative and grateful to have Mr. Sadek help me through my bankruptcy. When i first contacted Mr. Sadek i was nervous and didn't know what to expect he eased a lot of my worries and i left his office feeling like a load had been lifted. Mr. Sadek is very professional, caring, understanding and supportive also Matt one of the other attorney and Karen . Everyone in this office is absolutely amazing. I must say i wouldn't recommend anyone else if it wasn't Mr. Sadek and his firm. If you want the best look no further.

    review rating 5  Brad Sadek at Sadek and Cooper Law is AMAZING and gives excellent customer service. 10 years ago he personally guided me through chapter 7 and let me enter into a payment plan until I had enough to file. Within 2 years my credit score was back up and during my 3 year I was able to buy a beautiful. Unfortunately, I'm going through a divorce and I had to come back to him to file a chapter 13 to save my home from foreclosure but Brad even as the owner of this big law firm met with me personally to discuss my case and give my options and again was so willing to work with me until I had the money to file. Today I called the office for a random question and thought one of the other lawyers that work for him would call me back but nope it was Brad and took time to listen and answer my questions. He truly cares about all of his clients no matter what there status or income. If you are considering bankruptcy; please come talk to Brad I know he will listen and give you good sound legal advice . He saved my life twice. Thank you Brad and all of your wonderful staff at Sadek Law.

    review rating 5  I highly recommend Sadek And Cooper Law Offices. When I first met Brad Sadek I was very nervous and stressed about talking about my bankruptcy situation but Brad Sadek made me feel relaxed and explained everything to me in detail. After the initial consultation I met with Matthew Lazarus and he was wonderful and further explained my chapter 13 bankruptcy case. I cannot say enough good things about them. They answered all my phone calls and emails the same day. They are professional, knowledgeable, understanding and caring. Needless to say I never thought I would have to file for bankruptcy and the thought of it was so overwhelming and stressful but Brad and Matthew made the whole process stress free. if you need a bankruptcy lawyer I definitely recommend Sadek and Cooper, don't even think of going anywhere else. I just want to say thank you to them and to everyone at Sadek and Cooper Law offices. They are the best!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
