The Pennsylvania Attorney You Need to Secure a Stable Financial Future

There are many reasons people will struggle financially throughout their lives. Some have tried to handle their debts themselves, but their payments got bigger and bigger until they were no longer able to keep the bill collectors at bay. Many are struggling with a debilitating condition that prevents them from working, and their application for public benefits has been denied. No matter who they are, they all have one thing in common: they want to put their struggles behind them and move on to the next phase of their life.

A Successful Resolution to Your Bankruptcy or Social Security Disability Claim

Attorney Rodney Shepherd has over 25 years of legal experience, and is licensed to practice in all Pennsylvania courts, including the state Supreme Court. As a member of the Allegheny Bar Association and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, he can provide accurate legal advice on a variety of topics, and will always give your case the personal attention it deserves. Call or contact us today for a personalized assessment of your case.

If debt has become too big a burden to bear and you've exhausted every available option to alleviate it, then bankruptcy may be your chance to get your life back in order. Bankruptcy is a court process designed to help consumers either eliminate their debts or pay back some of their debts with a structured payment plan. Attorney Rodney Shepherd can determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, file the necessary paperwork, work to ensure that you keep your house and car, and put you on the path to a stable financial life.

If your Social Security disability claim was denied, we help you through the application and appeals process. We carefully examine your claim to determine why it was denied, gather additional evidence to support your case, and work to overturn the decision to get you the benefits you need to survive.

In all cases, we begin by addressing the problems that are most pressing to you right now, working to ease the stress on you and your family immediately. Attorney Rodney Shepherd's philosophy is to handle your case correctly the first time. That's why personal attention is guaranteed on each case, and at the time that is most convenient for you.
