Kindlund Legal LLC

Kindlund Legal LLC Hardships can happen to anyone, at any time. As a bankruptcy attorney, I help my clients deal with their debts and gain them new financial beginnings.

I have been assisting Maryland residents dealing with a number of debt problems for decades. As a former bankruptcy trustee, I know what perspective the “other side” of a bankruptcy case will take and the questions they will ask. With this knowledge, I can effectively prepare your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition. If we discuss your financial situation and bankruptcy is not your best interest, I can also seek other debt relief methods. This includes loan modifications for mortgages through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) or Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), seeking possible debt forgiveness or reductions for student loans and other possible options. For every individual, family or small business I work with, it is my goal to find the best legal solution available to help minimize debt and achieve the financial stability my clients deserve. I am able to work with those facing: • Serious debt from credit cards or medical bills • Home foreclosure • Overwhelming student loans or car loans • Mortgage arrears • Back taxes • Wage garnishment It is in your best interest to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you avoid common mistakes homeowners and individuals with debt can make. My team and I know how to file what needs to be filed on your behalf, and can advise you about what to expect during and after the legal process. I can also assist those seeking citizenship or permanent residency. I offer a free half hour consultation over the phone or in person, so take charge of your finances and call me today at (240) 688-9000. If Spanish is your primary language, know that you are welcome to call—my staff includes native Spanish speakers
