Walter Metzen’s Firm Philosophy

Bankruptcy Attorney Walter Metzen provides honest legal advice as to whether bankruptcy can help you.

My goal is to provide you with honest legal advice to allow you to make an informed decision as to how best to deal with your creditors and if bankruptcy is an option, which Chapter might be the best option for you.

My office’s philosophy is simple, to provide quality bankruptcy legal services at a reasonable price. As a specialist in consumer bankruptcy in Michigan, I limit my practice only to bankruptcy matters with primary focus on individuals and married couples with consumer or small business related debt.  Over the past 30+ years of my career, I have successfully represented thousands of clients discharge millions of dollars in debt in the United States Bankruptcy Courts of Michigan.  In addition to being a Board Certified Bankruptcy attorney, I am licensed to practice in both the Eastern and Western Federal District Courts of Michigan. My office strives to maintain close client contact and to provide all clients with personal, attentive service. We encourage our clients to stay in touch via phone calls, emails or in office appointments. We have same day appointments available and have walk-in hours everyday at the main office in Royal Oak. All of the attorneys at the Law Offices of Walter Metzen  & Associates are up to date on the most recent developments in bankruptcy law and we are dedicated to continuing bankruptcy legal education. I attend and am a frequent lecturer or presenter at various bankruptcy seminars, conferences and workshop so that I can maintain the level of quality bankruptcy representation to my clients that they have come to expect from my firm.

At my office, you will always meet with a lawyer, not a legal assistant or paralegal, but an experienced Michigan bankruptcy attorney. You and your case will be given personal attention each and every step of the way through the bankruptcy process to be certain that it succeeds. My office has an excellent reputation in metro Detroit and most of my clients are referred to me by other clients who appreciated the quality legal representation they received so much that they referred their friends and family members to my office when they were experiencing financial problems. When you come to my office for your initial bankruptcy evaluation, we will explore all available options and whether a bankruptcy filing is right for you, and if so, which Chapter. You will be provided with all options, straight honest advice, and given the time and advice to make an informed decision. We have excellent working relationships with all of the players in our local bankruptcy community including the bankruptcy Judges and Trustees, creditor and foreclosure law firms that may be our adversaries in various matters and strive to maintain that network. My office will communicate with you throughout the bankruptcy process, will call you to remind you of upcoming court hearings and will do everything within our powers to help you obtain a bankruptcy discharge.

My office offers free bankruptcy evaluations either over the phone or in person. My Detroit bankruptcy office is open Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and is located just one-block away from the United States Bankruptcy Court in Detroit Michigan so that we can best serve our clients. Because my office is so close to the bankruptcy court, we can run to the courthouse at a moments notice and file your bankruptcy on the same day in cases of an emergency such as to stop a garnishment, foreclosure, asset seizure, car repossession or wage garnishment. My satellite Royal Oak bankruptcy office is located at 30448 Woodward Avenue, Royal Oak, MI and is available by appointment only.

I understand that for most of my clients, coming to see me to talk about bankruptcy is a last resort. Most of my clients have tried everything in their power to work with their creditors all of which has been futile as the creditors want more and more money which is simply not available. My goals when I represent you are to make sure your assets are protected to the full extent the bankruptcy laws allow while at the same time helping you secure a discharge of your debt with the help of the bankruptcy court. I generally represent the working class in metro Detroit. I promise to provide you with fast, effective service where you get your money’s worth.

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Consumer Bankruptcy and represent clients in metro Detroit who are experiencing financial difficulties. I offer free in office and phone consultations.  Feel free to call me today at 313-962-4656 or email me at
