New Hope, MN Bankruptcy and Social Security Attorney Helps You Gain Financial Stability

We work hard to get you out from under your debts

Since 1976, the law office of Stephen J. Beseres Attorney at Law has helped New Hope and Hennepin County residents with their bankruptcy and Social Security issues. Our extensive experience allows us to understand your needs and offer sound advice.

For many, bankruptcy offers a fresh start. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or liquidation, is the most common type of bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 liquidation, a court-appointed trustee sells some of your assets to pay your debts. At the end of the process, the Bankruptcy Court discharges, or wipes away, most or all of your remaining debts.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy, often referred to as a wage earner’s plan, is most commonly used by those whose incomes are too high to qualify for Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is basically a debt consolidation plan. You repay creditors over an extended period of time under the terms of a court-approved payment plan. If at the end of the process you have made all of your payments, you will generally receive a discharge of your remaining debts.

Attorney helps you get SSD and SSI benefits from Social Security

Stephen J. Beseres also has decades of experience helping Minnesotans secure Social Security benefits when they become unable to work. Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) is a federal program designed to provide financial assistance to those who had to stop working because of a disability. SSD is an insurance program, and to qualify you must have worked for a sufficient amount of time.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI), on the other hand, provides financial assistance to those with limited income and resources. While SSI does not require a work history, it does require you to be blind, disabled or older than 65.

We guide you through the Social Security process from beginning to end. We begin by learning about your injury or disability at a free consultation. We then compile your medical, financial, educational and employment records. Next, we help you complete the necessary paperwork and file it with the proper Social Security Administration field office. If it is necessary to go through the Social Security appeals process, or even litigate in federal court, you can depend on our firm.
