Bankruptcy Law

Bankruptcy law firms are everywhere, capitalizing on individuals who are being affected by the unstable economy. It is important to note, however, that all Kansas City bankruptcy law firms are not created equal. The attorneys associated with bankruptcy law firms must not only be licensed in the field, they must be experienced. At Evans & Mullinix, P.A., our Kansas City bankruptcy attorneys have helped clients in Kansas and Missouri since 1974.  We work with individuals and businesses that are considering filing for bankruptcy. Our clients have found our knowledge and experience helped them make the right decision.

Bankruptcy might be a wise option for you if any of the following apply: 
 
You are experiencing harassing phone calls from creditors. 
You are unable to make your mortgage or car payments even though you are working hard with good intentions. 
You are uncomfortable with your level of debt.  

There are many advantages to working with bankruptcy law firms in Kansas City like ours when you are unable to meet your financial obligations. We’ll make sure you understand what the future holds for you once you take that step. Not all bankruptcy law firms focus on customer service. For more than 40 years, we have focused on building relationships with our clients. As a full-service law firm, we represent clients in family law, personal injury law and general law. We firmly believe new and eager can’t replace experience alone. Our team mixes seasoned attorneys with less experienced counsel to ensure you have exceptional representation. Some bankruptcy law firms want to benefit from your misfortune. Evans & Mullinix is here to help.

Evans & Mullinix has a regional reputation for bankruptcy representation, prompting many area lawyers to refer these matters to our firm. We regularly guide individual clients through Chapters 7 and 13 with care and understanding. Thomas Mullinix was a trustee for the District of Kansas and has been specially appointed as trustee of several medium-sized companies in Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 cases.

Our attorneys also assist businesses in restructuring under Chapter 11 or, when feasible, non-bankruptcy settlements. Since we also represent creditors, our broad range of knowledge makes it possible to achieve the most realistic outcome for each client. We have created alliances with the type of professionals necessary to help in the analysis of the business issues and the reorganization of struggling companies.
