USA Today is reporting that consumers increased their debt in November by more than $20 billion, the largest monthly increase in a decade. What this shows our Colorado Springs bankruptcy lawyers is not that the economy is in a better position than it has been in years, but more likely that consumers used their credit cards more during the winter holiday season. For those whose expenses are in tough shape, bankruptcy in Colorado Springs can help them get out from the predatory practices of credit card companies. These businesses consistently send out invitations for consumers to get their plastic, even…

The cost of higher education in this country has continued to rise, even as more and more students are seeking education after high school than decades earlier. And because of the recession, there are fewer jobs available for students while they're in school and after they graduate. But filing for bankruptcy in Colorado Springs may be an option worth exploring for some students. While bankruptcy laws currently don't allow for student loans…

Foreclosure numbers in Colorado fell in 2011. But most experts believe this has less to do with the real estate market recovering and more to do with a delay in filings by the country's biggest banks. Some people believe they can fight back against banks by attempting to show that the bank filing the foreclosure doesn't actually own the note. But our Colorado Springs bankruptcy attorneys believe there is another option that is more beneficial to Colorado Springs homeowners. That option is filing for bankruptcy in Colorado Springs. Did you know that filing for bankruptcy immediately stops a foreclosure? Whether…

Now that the holidays are mostly over, it’s time for many to consider where they stand, financially. The holidays have historically been a time when many people buy gifts for friends, loved ones, or co-workers not just because they’re caught up in the spirit of giving, but also because they feel pressured to buy gifts that they can’t necessarily afford. Have you been guilted, pressured, or shamed into buying extra gifts this season? Have your finances been stretched far beyond their limits? If so, it may be time to consider filing for bankruptcy. For many, the new year is a…

    "Upon my first visit to the office, I was in an unfamiliar part of town.  I was also bewildered and experiencing anxiety.  I was not even sure I should be there or how to proceed in a very new situation where my back was against a wall.  The first person I met in the office was the lovely receptionist.  I have to say that she has the absolutely right demeanor and is extremely successful in her position.  She has a slight but comforting smile and persona.  She is confident but not arrogant in processing the needs of clients.  I do not feel that this is a small achievement in any way.  I feel this person in many ways sets the tone for the office as the gate keeper of the office and emotional clients.  She definitely helped me thru this process with her silent and dedicated service to me, the clients and the office."

    "Upon entering Steve's office, one immediately knows they have entered his "zone".  Steve will talk, think, contemplate, then act.  He then spins his chair around, garbs paper, types on the computer and zaps something thru the printer.  Occasionally, a document needs to be scanned or something else from outside the office is needed, and Zap someone appears without having to yell down a hall or call out.  There is definitely a team here that is in sync.  There may be a question out of the blue suddenly or a brief conversation about something else.  The whole time, Steve is on point.  I felt from day one, a trustworthy confidence in placing my future in his hands.  I was not wrong.  I also never once felt rushed, brushed off or that my concerns were not his.  I felt that Steve is in this for me and his clients.  I have a debt, gratitude and confidence in Steve and the Swift team that far exceeds the fees pain."

    Matt Hansen is a good man, very helpful, gives good advice  AND he is willing to go the extra mile.  Steve Swift is a man of action who knows his profession.  He lifted a heavy burden, and I cannot thank him enough for an excellent job!"
