Vanden Bos & Chapman, LLP understands that most people and business owners never anticipate that they will face bankruptcy, let alone need an attorney. Finding the right lawyer to walk you through the bankruptcy process, whether you are considering Ch. 7 or filing under Ch. 12, can be challenging. Our goal is to help you take the guesswork out of the process. Our award-winning bankruptcy law firm has been serving the local community since 1981. Our Portland bankruptcy attorneys truly care about the clients we work with and always strive for the smoothest resolution possible.
Bankruptcy is a complex process. You deserve, and need, a lawyer with years of proven experience in both complex and simple bankruptcy filings. Our founding attorney, Robert Vanden Bos, spent over 30 years helping both consumer and business clients file for bankruptcy in Oregon until his retirement in 2018. His deep familiarity with state laws and local courts allowed Vanden Bos & Chapman to develop into one of the leading bankruptcy firms in Oregon and left a lasting legacy of competence, professionalism, and dedication to achieving our clients’ goals. On top of having some of the most respected bankruptcy attorneys in Portland, Oregon, our legal assistants and staff have extensive experience in the bankruptcy field, with several of them being Certified Bankruptcy Assistants and having experience working in the Chapter 13 Trustee's office.

Selecting the Right Attorney for Your Case
Ultimately, you should choose a lawyer with whom you feel comfortable working. Bankruptcy is a difficult and often stressful process. You need a lawyer who will treat you as an individual and not a number. We treat our clients with the dignity they deserve and see to it that the court system does likewise. You need someone you can openly and candidly discuss your case with because your Portland bankruptcy lawyer needs to know as much as possible about you and your case in order to effectively represent you.
At Vanden Bos & Chapman, LLP, we pride ourselves on being good listeners and getting to know our clients. We know that most of our clients never dreamed that they would ever need to hire a bankruptcy attorney. The good news is that we understand this process and are here to guide you through this difficult time.
