Scheduling an Appointment

To make an appointment with Ms. Greenberg please call the main office at 312-588-3330. Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 6:00pm. You can call and leave a voice mail message too. Let us know when is the best time to reach you for a call back. If you prefer, you can email Ms. Greenberg at to make an appointment.

When you call to schedule the free consultation, the we will ask you for some basic information about your problems in order to assist attorney Greenberg in preparing for your appointment.

The more information we receive from you prior to your first appointment, the better we will be able to advise you. Some of the questions you will be asked while scheduling your free appointment are:

• What sources of income do you currently have?
• Are you single, married, or divorce?
• Do you own a home, rent/lease, or are you living with someone else for free?
• Do you have credit card debts?
• Are your wages being garnished?

If there is something that is causing you a lot of concern, or is an immediate danger, please notify us. There are some situations that may mean the filing process should be expedited.

These are a few examples of urgent scenarios:

• Your wages are being garnished.
• You received a Motion for Summary Judgment or Motion for Default Judgment or Notice of Sheriff’s Sale regarding an upcoming foreclosure sale.
• You are being sued.
• You are behind on your car note. (that means the lender could repossess your car!)

Please let us know which office is best for you and think about whether mornings or afternoons are better for you or if there are specific days of the week that are easier. 

What to Bring to Your Appointment

While scheduling the first appointment, we will give you a list of documents to bring with you. Even if you know all about your finances, it is still important to bring as many papers as possible. Because the analysis and preparation of a case is so detail oriented and complicated, it is important for our staff to have plenty of documentation. If you cannot find all of these papers, do not be worried. Just bring in as much as you can find.

Below is a list of what you should bring with you to the appointment:

• Recent bills, collections letters, mortgage statements, car loan/lease billing statements, and tax notices.
• Any court papers (if someone is suing you or if you are suing someone else).
• If your wages are being garnished, please try to get the garnishment order from your payroll office.
• If you have a car loan, please try to bring in your purchase contract (if you can find it) and a recent billing statement.
• As many of your paycheck stubs or evidence of income (like Social Security and pension benefits) as you can find.
• Tax returns for the last year or two.

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can wipe out and give you the fresh start you may need to buy a car or a home. Chapter 13 can help save your home. The Bankruptcy Court has the power to stop all lawsuits, including foreclosures. Bankruptcy is a legitimate option that deserves your careful consideration. If you are falling behind in your bills you owe yourself to investigate all of your options. We offer a free consultation, so you have nothing to lose to investigate your alternatives.

Our main office is located in downtown Chicago, but we have offices throughout Chicago and the Chicago Suburbs, to serve you. Please contact Lorraine M. Greenberg to discuss your particular financial situation. We offer free bankruptcy consultations, and we promise to provide quality legal services at affordable prices.
