    NORCROSS, GA, December 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Gary Coleman, made famous by his role in "Diff'rent Strokes," was once the highest-paid actor on television and worth an estimated $7 million. Within just a decade of his success, a series of costly health problems and recurring legal trouble with his adoptive parents led him to declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 1999.

In an interview, Coleman made an accurate assessment of his financial struggles, saying he could "spread the blame" for his bankruptcy "from me to accountants to my adoptive parents, to agents to lawyers and back to me again." Atlanta bankruptcy lawyers of Clark & Washington discuss how their clients share similar sentiments regarding their financial struggles.

For most people, bankruptcy is not the result of a single event, but rather the culmination of a series of decisions and situations that span several years. Many people undergo expensive and recurring medical trouble that can leave them deeply financially strained.
