Thank you for visiting our website. The lawyers at Boyle, Bain, Reback & Slayton believe that before you decide to file bankruptcy, you should be well informed about what bankruptcy can do for you and your family. That is why we created this website, and that is why we offer a free 30 minute initial consultation with a lawyer, as opposed to a staff member. Moreover, you will have that same lawyer handling your case from start to finish. If you would like to meet with a bankruptcy lawyer to discuss your situation, please call or email us to set up an appointment. If you would like more information, please take a look at the following.
