Hello, my name is Wayne Mortensen and I am a bankruptcy attorney in Tucson, Arizona.

There is a thing called pre-bankruptcy planning and what we do is try to maximize exemptions when you file bankruptcy. That is why you go and see an attorney.  However, there are many pitfalls with maximizing your bankruptcy exemptions. There is  Section 5220 for example which can restrict that.

There are rules when you go an put money into an IRA, you need to follow those rules to a “T” in order to maximize that exemption with the IRA.  

You know, we always advise people on pre-bankruptcy planning and maximizing their bankruptcy planning and maximizing their bankruptcy exemptions.

My name is Wayne Mortensen and I am a bankruptcy attorney here in Tucson, Arizona and I have been practicing here for over 19 years.  If you have assets that you think might be  in jeopardy when you file bankruptcy, please come and talk to us so that we can tell you how to maximize those exemptions.  There is nothing I hate more than when I go to bankruptcy court and  I sit down and listen to clients who are losing assets because their attorney was too lazy or too scared to advise them on how to keep those assets and protect them and keep them safe.

So please, come and see us.  We would love to be able to advise you on your bankruptcy.  I look forward to seeing you in the office.
