Who are we?

Are you looking for a bankruptcy lawyer in Connecticut or for general bankruptcy information to help you get started? If you are, we understand that you have serious questions that need to be answered. Questions as to whether you should actually proceed with bankruptcy or if you have other options you can take advantage of.

Action Advocacy, PC was established in 1985 by Connecticut bankruptcy lawyer David Falvey. His office is located at 1 Crouch St. in Groton, CT. Specializing in consumer finance, over the last 25 years Attorney Falvey and his office have helped thousands of Connecticut families and individuals manage their debt while offering both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy options.

What is our mission?

Our mission is to provide the consumer with an objective and professional evaluation of all options when dealing with debt. We strive to help clients ‘turn the negative into a positive‘, namely, improving credit scores within 12-24 months after filing a bankruptcy petition.

How are we different?

Unlike most bankruptcy Attorneys we also provide alternatives to bankruptcy. We understand that no one wants to file for bankruptcy, and that there are situations where bankruptcy is not a viable option in settling your debt; whether the reason be legal or psychological.

That is why when we meet with clients we present the full picture of their options and apply the most effective strategy to deal with it.

We are confident we are the only legal practice offering this unique approach to helping our clients manage their debts and by providing as much associated bankruptcy information as possible. While most firms will preach to you why one option is the best over the other, we present all options and explain all the pro’s and con’s so you can make an educated decision that will work for you.
