The owner of Law Office of J. Scott Logan, LLC, J. Scott Logan focuses his practice on consumer bankruptcy and other forms of debt relief. Located in Portland, Maine, he represents clients throughout the greater metropolitan area and other parts of the state. Admitted to practice before all Maine state courts since 2005, Mr. Logan is also admitted to practice in Massachusetts and before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maine.
Mr. Logan's client base consists of people who have become overwhelmed by their financial obligations and who are seeking a way to get out from under that burden. His experience has included the two most common forms of bankruptcy that are available to consumers, each of which has different eligibility requirements and processes. The most familiar one is Chapter 7. Often referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy, it involves the filer's nonexempt assets to be sold by the trustee, with the proceeds being used to pay off creditors. Once that has been done, some of the filer's remaining unsecured debts are discharged.
Many of Mr. Logan's clients are able to qualify for Chapter 13. Under this method, which is available to people with a reliable source of income, debts are repaid under a court-approved plan that lasts up to five years. Mr. Logan also has experience in Chapter 12 bankruptcies, which are designed for farmers and fisherman, and he has worked on Chapter 11 filings for clients whose unsecured debts are higher than the limit imposed by Chapter 13. His successful track record on behalf of his clients has earned him an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo. A summa cum laude graduate of Bowdoin College, Mr. Logan obtained his legal education at Boston College Law School and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2005.
