MC Hammer's Bankruptcy is Discussed by Orlando Bankruptcy Attorneys, Clark & Washington

You may think you could never end up in debt, but MC Hammer once thought the same as a successful musician. Clark & Washington hopes Orlando residents never find themselves in this position.

    NORCROSS, GA, December 26, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Orlando bankruptcy lawyers at Clark & Washington understand how difficult it can be to need to file for bankruptcy, but they also know that there are countless individuals who are going through the same trying situation. Even the rich and famous can encounter financial hardships. Even MC Hammer had to file for bankruptcy, but was able to come back from financial strife to re-launch his career.

As a young boy, Stanley Kirk Burrell dreamt of being a performer. A chance encounter at a baseball field helped Burrell begin to network and use his performing skills, while being a bat boy for the Oakland A's. This is where he was given the nickname Hammer by legendary Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson.

The youngster moved on from being a bat boy to performing in a Christian musical group known as the Holy Ghost Boys. He eventually left the group to branch out on his own. Using his friend Arsenio Hall's show as a platform, Hammer danced his way into the heart of pop rap music with his baggy pants and unusual dance moves.

It all came crashing down, and Hammer went from making millions over night to filing for bankruptcy in a few short years. In the early 1990s, he was worth an estimated $33 million, but by 1996, he was $13 million in debt. Poor investments and extravagant spending ultimately caused him to file for bankruptcy.

While his financial troubles followed him into 2011, he remained positive and optimistic about the experience, feeling that he had all his debts squared away.

Orlando bankruptcy attorneys, Clark & Washington, understand how easy it is to amass debt, much like this music and fashion innovator, through extravagant spending and poor investments. Before you find the bank knocking on your door, contact Clark & Washington, where your financial troubles are priority number one.
