After earning my J.D. from Notre Dame Law School, I worked in corporate law.

Moving up to Michigan City from Chicago in 1993, I saw a need in this community for a bankruptcy service centered around your needs and your goals. My legal experience—and life experience—has taught me that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Let's get to work finding a path forward for you and your family.

Strive for Accuracy

There's a lot of information out there about bankruptcy, but not all of it is true. Don't believe everything you read. When it comes to bankruptcy law, you should insist on a clear understanding of the financial issues that impact you.

Just Get Started

Many people are scared of getting started with bankruptcy. Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy might seem frightening—but time and time again, clients are relieved once they've completed the process.

Collaboration is Key

A Path Forward For You & Your Finances

Debt can wreak havoc on your life. When payments pile up, it can feel impossible to dig yourself out of a financial hole. Everything in your life—from your personal relationships to your professional pursuits—is deeply impacted by debt. When you're feeling lost in a financial maze, reach out to me. At the Law Office of Regina Wilkinson, I offer practical solutions to clients in Michigan City, La Porte, Westville, and anywhere else in LaPorte County.

One possible answer to overwhelming debt is bankruptcy. While some people think that filing for bankruptcy means failure, nothing could be further from the truth. Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can give you the fresh start you need to start working toward a more secure future. This form of bankruptcy involves liquidating your assets to pay off your debts. When you are ready to start taking back control of your finances, don't wait. Schedule a free consultation to discuss whether you're eligible for Chapter 7.

If Chapter 7 bankruptcy doesn't seem right for you, Chapter 13 might be. When you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you'll commit to a repayment plan. For individuals with a stable income and the desire to maintain ownership of their assets, Chapter 13 could be a great fit. While it may seem as though you'll never regain power over your life, it's important to remember that you do have options. Contact me today to find out how you can move forward.

It's natural to feel scared when faced with the possibility of financial ruin. Remember: you don't have to go through this alone. There's no need to try to navigate your situation without an attorney to help you through it. Set up a free appointment with me in Michigan City to get the guidance you deserve.
