Testimonials from our clients
”What else can I say but Mr. Jump saved our home. We tried dealing with the mortgage company for almost a year, getting the run-around time and time again. We thought we had worked out a loan modification on our own and then the mortgage company filed for foreclosure. And then, we turned to Mark Jump. We could not have saved our home without him. He really cares."
”I used Jump Legal for a bankruptcy and I would recommend them to my friends and family members. I went to a few other consultations with attorneys in Columbus but I felt most comfortable with Jump Legal. They made sure that I understood the process and they handled everything for me."
”I had to file bankruptcy after a serious medical illness left me with bills I simply could not pay. I was working odd hours at the time and my attorney at Jump Legal was always willing to meet for for Saturday and evening appointments. Everything went smoothly with my case and I was able to put the illness and the bills behind me and move on with my life. Thank you."

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
In a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, a debtor makes affordable monthly payments to repay a portion of his/her debts (without interest) over a 3-5 year period. A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can be especially beneficial if you are a homeowner who is having trouble making your mortgage payments, but you would like to keep your home and reduce your payments. Most people are surprised to learn just how affordable Chapter 13 payments are.
A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is often called a "fresh start" bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, most unsecured debts (there are a few exceptions) can be wiped out, giving the filer a fresh start.
Often, when people consider filing for bankruptcy, they are very worried about whether to should file a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13. If you are in this situtation, we can help. During your free consultation in one of our Columbus, Ohio area law offices, an experienced attorney will carefully evaluate your situation and will help you to understand both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
