Ken Sheppard, Jr. is a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Canton, Ohio serving Akron, Massillon, Dover, New Philadelphia, and Stark, Tuscarawas, Summit."Hello. My name is Kenneth L. Sheppard, Jr. and I am the owner of Sheppard Law Offices, Co., L.P.A.


I welcome you to my Canton, Ohio bankruptcy and debt relief website. My law firm’s primary focus is bankruptcy and tax law. Here, I hope you find the answers to your questions.


I started my law practice in 2005 in Westerville, Ohio. I had a unique talent and interest for taxation. Early on, I discovered that many of my tax clients were also experiencing other debt problems as well. The natural progression of my law practice became concentrated in helping individuals with both bankruptcy and tax issues.


Over the past 9 years I have established four offices in Ohio (3 in central Ohio and one in Canton) where I help my clients resolve issues involving Bankruptcy and Tax.


I believe what sets me apart from every other practitioner is my kindness and respect for my clients’ particular situations. I personally know what it is like to struggle financially. There were certain defined moments in my life that provide me today with the humbling perspective to understand and care for my client’s circumstances.


At Sheppard Law Offices, it is my goal to provide you with a positive experience that results in the accomplishment of your objectives. My promise to you is that we will listen to your story, provide you with viable options that you may decide to pursue, and if retained, represent you to the best of our abilities."

Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Canton Ohio



Ohio Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Debt Re-organization


Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy sets up a structured debt repayment planFor those individuals that don't qualify to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Ohio or who where Chapter 7 may not be the most favorable option, another method for debt relief is a structured debt repayment plan under Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Ohio may prove to be the best debt option for those who have too much income to pass the Chapter 7 means test, or wish to keep assets that would be liquidated under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For example, if a debtor wants to keep their primary residence, they need to be current on the mortgage if filing for Chapter 7, therefore if they are not current filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be a better choice. Due to many of the home mortgage loan modifications in recent years, this has sometimes been a deciding factor in whether a client’s best option was a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Canton, Ohio bankruptcy attorney Ken Sheppard, Jr. can inform you of your options for filing for bankruptcy.

Canton & Northeast Ohio Debt Relief Alternatives



Primary Methods for Reducing Debt


Debt Settlement is a method used by Canton, Ohio debt relief attorney Ken Sheppard, Jr. for handling unsecured debt through negotiating a settlement arrangement with each creditor. For secured debt including mortgages or vehicle loans, one of the methods used by attorney Sheppard is to negotiate a loan modification to prevent home foreclosure or vehicle repossession.


Debt Consolidation consolidates multiple debts into one loan. Through consolidating higher interest rate accounts into a single loan you can often reduce the monthly payments, while setting a schedule to pay the debts in full over a set period.


Consumer Bankruptcy has two primary types, chapter 7 and chapter 13. Through filing chapter 7 bankruptcy in Ohio, unsecured debts are completely discharged and the filer gets a "fresh start". When filing chapter  13 bankruptcy in  Ohio, the debts get re-organized into a repayment plan that lasts 3-5 years, with most debt that remains being discharged at the end of the repayment period.
