Bankruptcy laws help people who can no longer pay their creditors get a fresh start – by liquidating assets to pay their debts or by creating a repayment plan. Bankruptcy laws also protect troubled businesses and provide for orderly distributions to business creditors through reorganization or liquidation.
Estate Planning involves will, trusts, beneficiary designations, powers of appointment, property ownership (joint tenancy with rights of survivorship, tenancy in common, tenancy by the entirety), gift, and powers of attorney. Trusts may be used to set up certain provisions for how minor children or developmentally disabled children will be distributed funds.
There are four main types of business formations, and each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some are easy and inexpensive to form while others provide you limited liability protection that protects your personal assets from creditor claims and lawsuits stemming from your business operations.

Murene Kaufman, Business Manager really enjoys talking with clients and understands what they are going through. Murene believes in what the Zeigler Law Group does and truly cares about the clients. In the past she has worked for large corporations, non-profit organizations and in the public schools.
In 2014, my husband and I engaged the Zeigler Law Group to assist us with a personal bankruptcy. As you might imagine, coming to the conclusion that we needed to file for bankruptcy was a difficult one. There were many nuances and complexities to consider in our case. Both Murray and Murene treated us with nothing but kindness and respect the entire time. They put us at ease during our very first meeting, carefully explaining bankruptcy law, the process for filing, and what we might expect along the way. They also clearly outlined their flat fee structure. There were absolutely no surprises.
I'm not normally one for doing these types of things but I felt compelled to do so this time. My wife and I were at our rope's end and when we came to met with Murray we were immediately put at ease. When we left our first meeting with Murray the level of stress was gone, just evaporated away. His knowledge, patience and demeanor were very comforting, he told us exactly what was going to transpire step by step and the process went exactly as he stated.
Murray patiently walked us through the whole process, answering every conceivable question we had and eliminating any fears we had along the way. Murene and Murray will guide you through your bankruptcy in the most friendly, honest and affordable way possible. You would have to look far and wide for a law firm that is more caring, genuine and supportive. All in all, our bankruptcy case was a breeze, thanks to the Zeigler Law firm. I would wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone."
Not only did he prepare the Will but went a step further and prepared a Financial Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney and a Do Not Resuscitate. Everything was explained in detail and done at once, finally that monkey off my back.
I can't say enough how wonderful and professional Murray handled our case. He is very knowledgeable and was able to explain all details involved along the way. He made a difficult situation seem much easier. I highly recommend his services and will be a return client.
Tempe Bankruptcy Attorney Murray Zeigler knows his stuff and combines it with a personal style that makes him a pleasure to deal with.
I have known Mr. Zeigler for many years. I know him to be knowledgeable in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy. He is considerate, intelligent, compassionate and great at what he does. I highly recommend him.
This is truly one of the easiest recommendations I have ever had the privilege to write. As an attorney, Murray is all of the things you wish for in a lawyer but really never think you will get. He is compassionate and empathetic. He is brilliant and funny. He can think outside the box and get very creative when trying to find solutions to potentially impossible situations. His laughter is contagious and can diffuse a tense moment instantly. He is a marvelous legal find and I consider myself fortunate to have had him in my circle and on my side.
