Regina Alberty is an attorney with offices in Forest Hills, Queens County. She was admitted to practice in 1994 in New York and in New Jersey.

The field of Bankruptcy Law is of fundamental importance to families who cannot pay their debts due to financial distress. However, there is significant misinformation regarding the use and effect of declaring bankruptcy. Some think that if they declare bankruptcy they will never have credit again. Others are fearful that everything will be taken from them. The Constitution of the United States in Article I, Section 8, provides for the establishment of uniform laws of bankruptcy throughout the United States. This provision in the Constitution was meant to help those in financial distress. Ms. Alberty offers all who come to her office a free consultation to see how she can help them get through their financial difficulties. She explains the law to them, reviews their particular financial situation, and offers advice regarding the best course of action to take.
Ms. Alberty handles Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases for consumers who have lost considerable household income when their hours of work were reduced, their overtime vanished, or who have lost their jobs and their unemployment benefits have been terminated. Families who are experiencing the present downturn of the economy need guidance in getting through this tough time and bankruptcy can help them survive.
Ms. Alberty is fluent in Spanish. She was born in Havana, Cuba, and has resided in the State of New York since 1961. She studied law at New York School of Law and also attended New York University and Queens College as an undergraduate. Clients who feel more comfortable discussing their legal problems in Spanish can communicate with her directly rather than through an interpreter.
