Fugate Law Firm



If you are a Porter County resident, we have an office that is close to you. Bankruptcy Law is a federal law which means that if you live in Porter or Lake County, your case will be filed in the Hammond Divistion of the Northern Indiana Bankruptcy Court. Most cases require your attendance at only one hearing. That hearing for Chapter 7 cases takes place at the federal courthouse in Hammond and if your case is a Chapter 13 case, the hearing will take place in Merrillville. This hearing is called a meeting of creditors, however, creditors very rarely appear at that hearing. Instead it is typically a meeting with the trustee that presides over your case.

Our office on U.S. 6 has been open since 1999 and is easily accessible from anywhere in Porter County. Ease of access to your bankruptcy attorney is important. The bankruptcy process requires documents such as pay stubs, bank statements, tax returns and other documents. Our conveniently located office makes it easier for you to bring in these documents when needed. If you have questions that you want to ask in person, you can stop by the office at any time to get answers.

Even if you are not a client yet, we gladly accept walk ins. If Attorney Fugate is in the office when you stop by, he will make time to meet with you. Our consultations are always free. Come by to meet Attorney Fugate and his pleasant staff and find out why so many Portage, Valparaiso and Chesterton residents choose Attorney Fugate to handle their bankruptcy cases.
