CMC Law is a comprehensive Atlanta bankruptcy law firm founded in 2012. We specialize in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy for consumers and small businesses. Our practice is devoted to helping individuals and families navigate the confusing territory of bankruptcy, foreclosure, creditor harassment, repossession, and asset protection. We make every effort to help our clients understand the law that applies to their particular situation and what alternatives are available. Our objective is to help our clients make informed decisions about their options, and then enforce those decisions with smart, aggressive legal representation, with the ultimate goal of becoming debt-free, followed by maintaining a debt-free lifestyle.
CMC Law aims to provide best-in-class customer service through direct attorney contact. At the same time, CMC Law is committed to aggressively protect and enforce the rights and interests of our clients, both through bankruptcy and litigation, when necessary.
Living with debt, especially when you lack the apparently ability to repay it, can mean living under a black cloud. Even during the happiest moments in life, lingering in your subconscious is the reality of unpaid debt. It's a type of lingering worry that never quite leaves your mind. Our mission is to help get rid of that debt so you can live your life with financial peace of mind. We also counsel clients after bankruptcy is over on how to stay debt free and give advice on wealth-building. Financial freedom is not an abstract concept. It is an achievable reality.
