Weekes Law bankruptcy attorneys serve all of the State of Utah. Utah is divided into four regions for creditor meetings: Ogden (Northern), Salt Lake City (Central), Provo (South Central), and St. George (Southern). Our bankruptcy attorneys regularly appear in and are familiar with the trustees in each district. The district is determined by the home address provided to the Bankruptcy Court at the time the bankruptcy case is filed.

OGDEN – The Ogden region covers Weber, Morgan, Box Elder, Rich, Cache, and parts of Davis Counties. So residents from Logan to Layton will all be assigned to Ogden. Sometimes residents of Bountiful will be assigned to Ogden and other times we’ve seen them assigned to Salt Lake. When the meetings are conducted in person, the meetings are held at the James V. Hansen Federal Building.

SALT LAKE CITY – The Salt Lake City region includes Salt Lake, Tooele, Summit and sometimes some residents in Davis Counties. When the meetings are conducted in person, the meetings are held at the office building located at 405 South Main Street, Suite 250 in Salt Lake City. This is NOT the Bankruptcy Court that is across and up the street a half a block.

PROVO– The Provo region includes Utah, Wasatch (Heber), Duchesne, Uintah, Juab, Sanpete, Carbon, Millard, Sevier, Emery, Grand and San Juan Counties. When the meetings are conducted in person, the meetings are held at the Provo Library.

ST. GEORGE – The Saint George region includes Beaver, Piute, Wayne, Iron, Garfield, Kane, and Washington Counties. When the meetings are conducted in person, the meetings are held at the Justice Court building at 87 North 200 East.

We frequent get asked whether bankruptcy is dishonest or unethical. In our experience the overwhelming majority of people who file bankrutpcy are honest, hard-working and upstanding people. Most people file bankruptcy as a result of unexpected medical bills, the loss of a job, divorce, or some other unexpected and frequently uncontrollable event. The framers of the United States Constitution specifically provided for a uniform system of bankruptcy to deal with this issue. Bankruptcy is both honest and ethical. To read more about why Bankruptcy was part of our Federal Constitution, read our blog article Does Filing For Bankruptcy Mean You’re Dishonest or Unethical?

Yes! We have litigated and won in Bankruptcy Court against our competition and the United States Trustee to allow us to offer flexible payment plans to our clients. We understand that most people needing to file for bankruptcy don’t have the money to pay the amount of money that is typically charged upfront. 

No other firm can make that claim. 

For a limited time…you can file fast with a low down or even $200 Down Bankruptcy! We setup easy monthly payments after the case is filed. Get started today!
