Preparing Your Finances in the Midst of Economic Uncertainty.  Non-Bankruptcy Alternatives and Negotiating Workouts.

In this uncertain time, being prepared for the unknown is vital to your family’s long term financial well being.  Jonathan Dever founded his law firm in 2002 as our nation was recovering from the September 11 attacks. He quickly realized that he was able to use hsi legal know-how to help families and small business owners facing difficult financial and emotional circumstances.

Once the Great Recession began five years later, he took what he had learned from these experiences to help out consumers and businesses at the height of that crisis. This meant defending homeowners, fighting foreclosures, and helping business owners maintain their livelihood without filing for bankruptcy.

Today, we find ourselves in uncertain economic times. Businesses are being shuttered by the government without any real assurance of when this will end. Many workers have been sent home without paychecks. Funds that were saved for rainy days must now outlast a 100-year flood. And we don’t know for certain how long this process will last. More disconcerting, money promised for small businesses hasn’t arrived.

Jonathan knows that we can weather this or any challenge, because while the causes of financial turmoil change, the ways to address it do not.  Jon will be with us from 7:40-8:15 PM.

Jonathan will take his knowledge of helping thousands of small businesses and individuals and give you some tips on how to best prepare your family for the economic conditions that we are facing as a State and Nation.
