Bankruptcy

At Rutter and Sleeth Law Offices, we consider bankruptcy to be the last resort for debt relief. When debt negotiation is no longer possible, we can help you determine if liquidation or reorganization is the appropriate course of action. Both methods are complex and require the guidance of experienced attorneys. We can help you decide if bankruptcy is right for you.

Each state has at least one district court, but many states, including Missouri, have two or more districts. A district itself may be divided into divisions and may have several places where the court hears cases. Let us help you navigate the bankruptcy court system.
