“Every question no matter how simple deserves a quick, understandable and reasonable answer so that each client can plan for their future”.
Erin K. Brignola recently joined Gellert Scali Busenkell & Brown, LLC to add her 30+ years of legal knowledge and experience in Consumer Bankruptcy litigation and small-business bankruptcy representation. Recognized by her peers annually since 2001 as a “Top Lawyer” in Consumer Bankruptcy, she devotes 95% of her practice to helping people file successfully for debt relief.
Erin’s personal and attentive representation of thousands of satisfied clients insures her notable recognition of the top 1% of America’s Most Honored Lawyers for client satisfaction. Erin provides attention to detail to tailor her representation to each client’s individual needs.
Erin is an experienced and accredited mediator and provides not only debt relief options but practical solutions to inter-related issues in other areas of the law including family law, real estate closing and title law, and she offers simple wills, and agency documents (POA/AHD).
As a Consumer Bankruptcy attorney, Erin provides a complete analysis of a possible federal court filing which when timely filed will provide relief from creditor harassment or attachment. She provides remedies for each individual and /or small business owner to protect their assets including their home, cars, bank accounts, retirement accounts and their business and income livelihood. Representation in federal court will lead to stopping most state court actions for the benefit of a fresh start for her clients.
