Denver Bankruptcy Attorney and Lawyer
Debt Relief Law Firm
The Law Office of Jon B. Clarke, P.C., was established in 1992. Before that time, attorney Jon B. Clarke was a shareholder and director of Clarke & Waggener, P.C. — a downtown Denver law firm founded in 1966 — which moved to Denver Tech Center offices in 1983.
Mr. Clarke is a second generation Denver bankruptcy lawyer with more than 35 years of experience. In 2006, attorney Clarke was named a top attorney in Colorado’s SuperLawyer magazine, one of only a few consumer bankruptcy lawyers to achieve this distinction.
Today, Denver bankruptcy attorney Jon Clarke focuses his practice on the area of insolvency, particularly in Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy. He and his support staff can efficiently handle your bankruptcy case, answering your questions and addressing concerns involving the protection of your assets and the long-term effects of a bankruptcy filing. Mr. Clarke is prepared to handle any level of complexity an insolvent individual or business debtor may bring to him.
Currently, Mr. Clarke does not represent Chapter 13 individual regular-income debtors, but he can give you names of experienced bankruptcy attorneys in your area who do.
Key Bankruptcy Steps
Your first step toward debt relief is to complete the business, consumer debtor analysis form, so we can determine whether you are an individual debtor. If so, attorney Clarke will determine if your debts are primarily business or consumer in nature. We will then contact you to discuss the type of attorney-client relationship that can then follow.
Mr. Clarke’s congressionally mandated procedure for accepting clients is described on our law firm’s Becoming a Client and Debt Relief Agency pages. His extensive experience and devotion to this area of law allowed him to create an efficient, web-based procedure that limits the number of office visits. Some very complex cases may require additional office meetings.
New Bankruptcy Law
The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 — which applies to all cases filed after Oct. 16, 2005 — imposes extensive and stringent disclosure requirements on entities providing bankruptcy assistance to prospective clients.
The act necessitates fundamental changes in client marketing, client intake, client consultation, as well as obtaining client information, conducting prebankruptcy analysis and culminating in the filing of a Chapter 7, 11, or 13 bankruptcy petition. At the Law Office of Jon B. Clarke, we focus on acquainting you with the disclosures and notices legally required before we can give meaningful, personalized advice about your unique situation.
