Excellent Source for Nebraska Legal Problems

The Skrupa Law Office, LLC has created a well organized, easy to navigate website.  The overall theme and look of the website reinforces their goal of being a medium sized firm with small firm intimacy.   The overarching theme is that they are a Nebraska Bankruptcy Lawyer who provides information and legal advice in the areas of foreclosure, repossessions and certain tax issues, among others. 


In addition to providing cogent information about their firm and the primary attorney, the website offers several resources relative to law and legal issues on their resource page.  The links on the resource page are relevant and operational.  Additionally, one of the most interesting pages on the website is the common questions regarding business bankruptcy.  However, their informational page on personal bankruptcy is just as interesting and informative.


One the FAQs page, a number of interesting questions regarding bankruptcy are answered.  The firm points out that there are exemptions to property that can be seized and or disposed of during bankruptcy proceedings. Moreover, the website informs the readers that these protections differ from State to State.  Its fairly clear that one should use an attorney not only licenses to practice in that state and before the applicable court, but one familiar with the legal processes within that state.
