DIY vs. Hiring a Seasoned Attorney

  • Divorce Help: While it’s certainly plausible to head to the courts yourself, you could get a speedier and more peaceful outcome with the help of the firm's lawyers. The divorce lawyers at O'Neill Law Firm enables productive resolutions by proposing mediation when conflicts arise.
  • Bankruptcy Help: Before rushing to the nearest online form for filing bankruptcy, the attorneys at O'Neill Law Firm could help you keep your assets, even after filing bankruptcy. For the do-it-yourselfer, a poor decision in the face of debt could sink you deeper into the hole. The bankruptcy lawyers, on the other hand, will explore Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which allows you to keep most of your assets.
