- Consumer Bankruptcies Rise in July | Legal News | News Ticker
Everyone who lives in the United States fully understands that we are fighting through one of the worst economic recessions in history. As a result, more people than ever before are suffering through difficult financial problems to the point where they are experiencing stress simply by answering the phone or walking to the mail box. Unfortunately, after a brief period where it seemed that things were beginning to improve for individuals, the latest bankruptcy statistics show that any improvement has been lost.
2010 Bankruptcy Statistics
According to the National Bankruptcy Research Center, almost 138,000 people filed for personal bankruptcy protection last month. This represents a rise of nine percent from June and a similar rise in personal bankruptcy filings from July of 2009. Overall, there have been more than 900,000 personal bankruptcy filings this year, and the country is on pace to surpass the record of 1.4 million filings if this trend continues. Specifically, Arizona personal bankruptcy filings have climbed by more than 30 percent during 2010, likely having to do with the continued struggles of the real estate market.

Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Liz was great
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
