The Miller Law Chronicles Episode 020

by | Oct 11, 2023

In today’s episode of The Miller Law Chronicles, attorney Jamie Miller takes a detour from legal theories to dive into the real-life story of Thomas Curzi, a client who has blazed through the challenges of Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Conversations about bankruptcy can be dominated by legal jargon and the assumption everyone knows the process. However, the best way to understand bankruptcy is through the stories of people who’ve lived it – people like Thomas, a resident of Clinton, Wisconsin who turned his life around by taking bold, informed steps to tackle his burdensome debt.

Thomas first approached us with $50,000 in credit card debt. His life was filled with the constant worry of creditors’ lawsuits, potential wage garnishments, and looming liens on his home. After careful consultation and weighing of options, Thomas and his wife chose to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

It’s important to note that Chapter 7 isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, but in Thomas’s case, it was the right move. Overcoming a few objections and obstacles along the way, Thomas managed to get his debts discharged. He was able to retain his home, his car, and his retirement savings, and he paved a way forward.

Fast forward to today, and Thomas stands tall with a 720 credit score. Free from the shackles of debt, he is now focused on saving money and living the financially stable life he deserves. He will be sharing his insights about the emotional stress debt can cause within a family and how Chapter 7 bankruptcy helped him navigate those challenges.
