Geraci Law LLC was founded by attorney Peter Francis Geraci. Geraci Law filed more bankruptcy cases by far than any other law firm in the U.S. in 2015, over 13,000. We have counselled well over 100,000 clients. We don't know exactly how many, but we are now on file 635,000.
We only practice in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, with about 30 offices, and over 100 total attorneys and staff. We specialize in consumer bankruptcy. We know the rules. We are easy to talk to and are always on your side. We are sympathetic. We may accept our fees in installments, and our fees are reasonable. We are interested in your future, and will give you advice based on over 100,000 past and present clients we have represented in matters similar to yours.
I have been practicing law since 1974. I am admitted to practice in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, California, Florida and New York.
I have tried many cases before both juries and judges. I have tried every kind of case from murder to paternity, from civil rights to work injuries, from paternity cases to automobile accidents. My last jury verdict was $6.5 million in a birth injury case, and I won the appeal and collected another $1.2 million in interest for my client.
Geraci Law LLC files over 10,000 bankruptcies every year. Some of my clients have done 2 bankruptcies with me already. Some of their grandparents were my clients!
Since my practice is now concentrated in bankruptcy work, the only other cases we handle are injury claims. We refer all other cases to competent lawyers who specialize in other areas. There is an advantage to concentrating in a particular area of law.
In the bankruptcy area, we receive a book which contains recent cases and law which have just come out in the bankruptcy area every month. A lawyer who does not specialize could not possibly keep up with all the literature in a certain area. We do, and we have a lot of experience in consumer bankruptcy cases.
If you tell your lawyer everything, and fill out the attorney's forms completely, you can be sure of getting proper advice that will help you.
Your free phone mini-consultation on the phone is free. When you decide to file bankruptcy, you will need an appointment to meet with one of our attorneys in person. The purpose is to look at your bills, your income, and your expenses, and give you your Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 alternatives. We will write down your alternatives, and write down what each will and will not do for you, and the relative cost of each.
