Since being admitted to the bar almost 40 years ago, I have focused on representing debtors. In my practice, The Law Office of Barry R. Levine, I pride myself on assisting people from all walks of life in dealing with a variety of financial issues.
Most of my clients consider bankruptcy after a job loss, demotion, failure of a small business or catastrophic medical event. I have represented retirees who have run out of money while living on Social Security benefits; individuals whose self-owned business have failed, with personal financial difficulties as a result; recent college graduates who couldn’t find immediate employment and accrued a significant amount of credit card debt as a result. My typical client comes from all walks of life and every economic stratum.
In almost all cases, credit card companies will treat their customers very nicely, but the bottom line is that it’s very difficult for a person who has no job, work prospects or income to pay 26 percent interest to a credit card company.

What Is A Foreclosure Wage Garnishment?
When your house is foreclosed upon and sold at foreclosure auction, your mortgage lender may later contact you to inform you that you still owe them money. If the foreclosure sale did not bring in enough money to pay off your mortgage loan and you do not pay off the difference, the lender can take you to court to get a deficiency judgment against you. If you do not pay this judgement, your wages may end up being garnished. A foreclosure wage garnishment attorney is essential when facing this scenario in Beverly, Massachusetts.
