Frequently Asked Questions

Bankruptcy Law

When should I file for bankruptcy?

Filing a case depends on your situation. Discuss this with your bankruptcy attorney to determine the best time for you. Timing does matter. It can make a big difference in which debts you can discharge and which assets you can protect.

Can I keep my house if I file for bankruptcy?

In most circumstances, the answer is yes! An attorney can determine if there is any particular advantage to the type of bankruptcy you are eligible to file and how it could affect your property.

Can I be prevented from getting a job if I file bankruptcy?

No. The Bankruptcy Code prevents employers from discriminating against you when hiring.

Are credit counseling and debt negotiation and settlement viable options?

Although many people try to negotiate with their creditors, a voluntary agreement with your creditors does not force them to stop collection activities against you. Also, your debt can and often does accrue interest and penalties while in that process. Bankruptcy stops attempts to collect debts and in most cases freezes the amount you owe as of the date of the filing.

Employment Law

Does my employer have to pay me time-and-a-half when I work over 40 hours in a workweek?

It depends. The general rule in the United States is that if you work more than 40 hours in a week you should make one and one-half times your regular rate of pay.

My employer calls me an independent contractor and says they do not have to pay me one and one-half times my regular rate of pay for hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. Is that legal?

While it’s true that independent contractors do not have to be paid one and one-half times their regular rate of pay, employers often misclassify employees as independent contractors.

My employer requires me to do work off-the-clock. Is that legal?

Probably not. Many situations where employees work off-the-clock are considered “compensable time.” That means employers must pay employees for the time they spend doing that work.

What can I recover under the Fair Labor Standards Act?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, you may be entitled to back wages, liquidated damages in an amount equal to your back wages, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
