Welker & Associates Company Information
In 1998 Peter Welker began his own personal insolvency and debt management business. When Peter began, his goal was to provide a personal and compassionate approach to helping people who were experiencing money problems. In 2006 Peter’s son Chris Welker took over his father’s business and founded Welker & Associates Inc. Today Chris continues to offer the same high quality of service focused on helping individuals and families overcome their personal debt problems through affordable fee arrangements, flexible appointments and free initial consultations. Unlike most of their competitors, when you book an appointment with Welker & Associates Inc. you will meet with a licensed trustee in bankruptcy and not an estate administrator. We feel that it is important for you to have your questions answered by the individual who will be responsible for your file. Since you will be meeting directly with a licensed trustee, your money problems will be dealt with more effectively and often in one meeting. 

Meet our trustees

Our licensed trustees combine more than 30 years of experience in dealing with all kinds of debt situations.
