Will a Pending Divorce Screw Up Your Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Once your Chapter 13 has been confirmed you have a sense of relief because your financial chaos is finally under control. Your home is secure, your vehicles are secure.  You're feeling pretty good about life, as you should. In your Chapter 13 you have between 3 years and 5 years to make your plan payments before your case is discharged.  Often the stress and strain of finances puts a tremendous strain...
Your Chapter 13 was Dismissed………….Now What?
We often have initial consultations with people who have already filed a previous Chapter 13 case. These folks are normally in a panic because they're afraid of losing their home again; the threat of foreclosure and repossession of their vehicle(s) is very real. If you filed Chapter 13 and there was a reasonable explanation as to why you were unable to fulfill...
Is the Stigma of Bankruptcy Worth It?
Bankruptcy is a scary word to many because: it's something you will never recover from; you'll never buy a home or a car again; you will have to surrender all of your assets and be left with nothing. Good reasons to be afraid, however the above statements could not be more wrong. They are inaccurate and only a part of the stigma that has been created for...
Bankruptcy Lawyers VS. Lawyers Practicing Bankruptcy Law
My Dad has really had his hands full - he’s been an incredible caregiver to my Mom who unfortunately has the dreaded disease Alzheimer’s.  He finally hired Judy to clean once a week for a couple of hours and she has also helped care for Mom with love and kindness.

Are You Fearful of Your Upcoming 341 – First Meeting of Creditors??
When I mention to clients that they will be required to appear at a 341 First meeting of creditors, most of them cringe and become nervous immediately. They imagine a Meeting where they are interrogated and questioned about every aspect of their case.  In El Paso, the Creditors Meetings are nothing to be nervous about. I explain to my clients from inception that their 341...
Can Change Begin in Bankruptcy Court?
I'll be 60 years old this year - a true flower child at heart.  Love, Peace, Equal Rights.  And as my generation grew up we lived those values and life slowly changed.  Something's happened - there's been a shift and in my opinion an ugly shift.  It's like all the small-minded Americans banded together with the goal of homogenizing America.   When did the right to...

Bankruptcy Errors to Avoid – Part 1- Missing Creditors
There is one call every bankruptcy lawyer dreads getting from a client after their case has been closed.  The call  regarding a missing creditor - a creditor not listed on their bankruptcy schedules and now the creditor is making demands for payment or a lawsuit has been filed against the client by this creditor.  It's a common mistake and one that unfortunately happens all too...

I am pleased to announce Diamond Law has opened a 2nd location on the eastside of El Paso.  For about a year we had a small office on the eastside opened 2 days a week, but now we finally took the plunge and opened up a beautiful (I decorated) new office to better serve El Pasoans.  I always heard that El Paso was one of...
Filing Bankruptcy Pro Se: Is it Really Worth It?
Recently, I have encountered a good number of individuals who decided they could file their Bankruptcy case on their own. It obviously seems like a pretty simple task, since at first glance the documents look like forms that you can just fill out. Unfortunately for these individuals, they are hit with reality when the Bankruptcy Court or the Trustee are requesting additional documents, Financial Management Course Certificates,...
