A Message from Partner Keith WelchHeadshot of Keith Welch

I joined Simon Fitzgerald LLC in 1977, and for the last 30 years, I’ve practiced bankruptcy law in Shreveport / Monroe. Our mentor, Archie Simon, was a premier bankruptcy attorney in Louisiana and an original senior partner in Simon Fitzgerald LLC. We’ve been involved in bankruptcy law for well over 50 years, tracing the original firm back to 1907.

Since 1999, we’ve primarily represented individuals and small businesses in Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 filings. We understand that even a slight disruption in income or an unexpected expense can lead to financial problems. Our team of eight experienced bankruptcy attorneys, supported by over 20 paralegals and additional staff, is dedicated to helping you regain control of your finances.

We know that making the decision to call us can be difficult. Our initial consultation is free and confidential. You’ll be treated with respect, and we’ll provide you with options to solve your financial problems. We are committed to helping our clients achieve financial freedom and making a positive impact on their lives.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the most common form of bankruptcy filed in Louisiana. It provides immediate relief from creditors and may help you avoid foreclosure or repossession. In Chapter 13, attorney fees can be included in your repayment plan, and court filing fees may be paid in installments. Chapter 13 bankruptcy offers benefits such as keeping assets and restructuring debts.

Call us at 318-868-2600 (Shreveport / Monroe), 318-625-7505 (Alexandria), or 337-984-1584 (Lafayette / Lake Charles) to discuss whether Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 is the solution to your debt problems. We are Louisiana’s oldest bankruptcy law firm.
