In my many years as an attorney, I have counseled a lot of elderly clients. Retirement is supposed to be the golden years. For many them, however, life drifts back and forth between fear and anxiety because of crushing credit card debt. With a fixed income, they often simply don’t have the resources to put food on the table and cover the monthly minimums on the credit cards. Sadly, I have seen so many of my clients who pay their credit cards and then go hungry! I wrote this book so that San Francisco Bay Area residents would be able to quickly understand what bill collectors can and can’t do, what it means to be “judgment proof” and how pension, retirement, 401k and Social Security payments are ALL protected from creditors. I give strategies for dealing with nasty creditors. Finally, I explain that in many cases, elderly folks may not need to file for bankruptcy although sometimes they may choose to do it anyway.
