Bankruptcy & Debt Relief
Attorney in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Robert W. Hoke

Attorney at Law

I am an experienced bankruptcy attorney originally from the Orange, Texas area, a city situated on the border of Texas and Louisiana. During my time at Louisiana State University, I fell in love with the Baton Rouge community and decided to put down roots here after a short stint in Houston. As a student at LSU Law, I gained experience in trial and appellate advocacy while interning at the East Baton Rouge Office of the Public Defender and the Department of Environmental Quality. After graduation, I felt like I truly found my niche when I began working in the field of bankruptcy. I'm here to provide a helping hand to those in need.

Seek the Financial
Freedom You Need

You don’t have to let debt hold you back any longer. Bills and foreclosures can seem devastating, but there can be a better option. Many people do not realize that bankruptcy is an alternative to foreclosure that can give them their lives back and save their homes. With foreclosures expected to increase in the coming months, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to help you out of the toxic cycle with creditors.

Practice Areas

I have represented hundreds of clients facing debt fears and offering bankruptcy solutions. In addition to that, I work hard to relieve your IRS tax debt and non-bankruptcy debt. In Louisiana, there are non-bankruptcy options for dealing with debt, and that is why it is essential to have an experienced debt settlement attorney on your side.

If you are facing the possibility of having your property foreclosed on, you need a legal advocate who will tirelessly fight for your rights. Depending on your unique circumstances, I will seek a defense to combat the other party's tactics. Reach out to me today in Baton Rouge and schedule a free consultation.

Client Testimonials

Allow Me to Help You With Your Debt-Relief

Recent years have not always been kind to our wallets or our budgets, and you may be fearing wage garnishment, vehicle repossession, or foreclosure on your dream home. Did you know that Louisiana is one of the only states that allows 25% garnishment of your paycheck? However, besides hiding from your postal carrier, turning the ringer off your phone, or other extreme measures, there are other options. Bankruptcy could be a way to get your finances back on track, stop the harassment from creditors, and protect your home from foreclosure. It sounds too good to be true, but it is a great tool to get you back on track.

I help clients wipe their financial slate clean with bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is for individuals and businesses, but your income must be low enough to qualify for Chapter 7. The process is quick, only around 3 to 4 months. Not everyone qualifies for Chapter 7, but many people that don’t, qualify for Chapter 13.

Chapter 13 is for people or sole proprietors who don’t meet the requirements of Chapter 7 but need to reorganize their debt for lower credit card payments, have fallen into arrears on alimony or child support, or need to catch up on a house or car payment. In Chapter 13, the trustee does not sell your property. You pay back your creditors through a repayment plan. I can discuss your options with you in a free consultation. Call today to get scheduled. I serve clients in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, area, and the neighboring areas of New Orleans and Lafayette.
