Moving Beyond Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy Trends In Pierce County

Laurie Shillito - Thursday, August 28, 2014
We hear from clients who often feel like they are alone in filing for bankruptcy. The perception is that everyone else is doing just fine with their budget, but the reality is the opposite. From 2006 to 2011 over 20,000 people in Pierce County filed for bankruptcy. (The actual number is 21,121) This might seem low, but the population of Pierce County as of the 2011 census was 807,904. That means that 2% of the entire population of Pierce County has filed for bankruptcy in the last 6 years.


Nearly 2 out of 10 people around your area have filed for bankruptcy. That means when you are shopping at the grocery store, getting gas, or driving, someone around you has gone through the bankruptcy process. Bankruptcy is common, and we are Tacoma’s Bankruptcy experts.
