Find the solutions you need for your legal troubles

Work with a lawyer that will help you fully understand your case and guide you throughout the entire process. DeMott & Van Elk, P.C. will be the firm you can depend on during your difficulties with bankruptcy, family law, and misdemeanors.

Protect your property from creditors

Bankruptcy is sometimes called a “fresh start,” and that’s exactly what it’s intended to be. A fresh start to life without worrying about how to balance your need to buy food and pay the electric bill while, at the same time, paying the credit card companies. We’ve represented bankruptcy clients all over West Michigan. So whether you’re in Allegan, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Holland or any other areas in West Michigan, we’re here for you.

Filing bankruptcy should take a weight off your shoulders. That’s not to say it will be easy, but that’s where we come in. We’re always available to answer questions you may have, even after your discharge. We want our clients to feel comfortable coming back to DeMott & Van Elk.

Personalized care for every case

Bankruptcy is not an area of the law to be taken lightly. While many of the cases filed each year are “no asset” cases, sometimes it’s the things you don’t think about that get you in trouble with the trustee. We pay close attention to your unique situation and make sure we have everything right before we file your case.
