Personal Bankruptcy Law Lawyers In Drewsey Oregon

Drewsey is an unincorporated community in Harney County, Oregon, United States. Before European American settlement, the area was a favorite camping spot for the Paiute tribe of Native Americans. It is located on the middle fork of the Malheur River, about 45 miles east of Burns, off U.S. Route 20. According to Oregon Geographic Names, in 1883 Abner Robbins opened a store in the locality and he named the place "Gouge Eye" to commemorate a local dispute. When the Robbins applied for a post office, postal authorities didn't accept the original name, so he changed it to "Drusy".

The town's elevation is 4,148 feet. As of 2008 its population was 18.

What is personal bankruptcy law?

Personal Bankruptcy involves the legal process that an insolvent individual takes to insure fairness and equality upon creditors and to help the debtor start anew with the property he or she is allowed to keep without being hampered by liabilities he or she might have accrued. Personal Bankruptcy attorneys advise on debt relief options and guide individuals through each phase of a federal bankruptcy filing -- including Chapter 7 bankruptcy debt discharge plans and Chapter 13 bankruptcy debt repayment plans. Bankruptcy attorneys may also represent creditors seeking to have their rights enforced in connection with a bankruptcy reorganization of a debtor.

Business Bankruptcy attorneys also advise on debt relief options and guide individuals through each phase of a federal bankruptcy filing.
