On a typical, quiet Wednesday afternoon, I find myself suddenly wishing I had a million dollars and a megaphone. After meeting with Bryan Roy, founder of Veterans First Light, and his colleague Kayla, I become so positively thrilled that there is a new resource in our community for veterans and their families, that I truly wish I had the monetary resources to catapult this non-profit to reach every possible veteran in need  (and a megaphone to tell the good news). I am absolutely astounded by the number of veterans who call our law firm looking for financial advice.

Playing catch-up on your bills....oh the joy. The holidays have come and gone, the new year is in full swing and the passing days are not slowing down! Neither are the bills. January passed so quickly, and I still see people trying to catch up on their bills from November and December. Getting behind on your bills is no joke, and some days it feels like it is impossible to catch up, much less save money. However, tax refund season is right around the corner and you can catch up on your bills then.

Before my clients file bankruptcy, they usually bring up one of their biggest concerns, "How do I know I'm ready to file?" Not everyone has a full understanding of what bankruptcy is, or if they do, may not feel ready. Whether or not you're in the beginning stages of filing bankruptcy, or just educating yourself on what it is, it still helps to know that you're not alone.

We've already talked about subprime borrowing on auto loans and how it hurts you in the long run. However, there comes a time when we realize our paychecks are not meeting our needs and we need money now. Loans usually seem to be a good idea when we need them the absolute most. There are all kinds of reasons to consider getting a loan: the holidays are right around the corner, the washing machine just stopped working, the doctor's bills are sky-high, and you need new tires on the car. You're low on cash, so what can you do?
