A special clinic to help low-income consumers stay out of bankruptcy. At this clinic, volunteer attorneys will help individuals deal with creditors, and help notify creditors when people are “judgment proof,” meaning their income is protected by law from collection.
“Bankruptcy By-pass” is designed to keep people from having to pay creditors money that is protected by law and to avoid having to spend money on a needless bankruptcy.
Appointments are necessary — please call 888-817-3777. Those attending should bring all relevant paperwork to the clinic.
This clinic will be staffed by volunteer attorneys.
This clinic is named in memory of attorney Will Kohn, who began the Bankruptcy By-Pass program at Legal Aid.
Legal Aid is proud to host this event in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association.
