Chandler is located in the east valley within Maricopa County. Chandler was named by its first inhabitant and the first veterinarian surgeon in Arizona, Dr. Chandler, in 1891. He originally obtained land to study irrigation engineering. Soon Dr. Chandler acquired enough land to being a town, hence the name "Chandler." Chandler has continued fostering research and development by housing scientific based corporations such as Intel, Motorola and Microchip. Intel is also the city's largest employer with 9,700 employees according to a 2011 Economic Development Report.
Bankruptcy in Chandler
Although Chandler is home to large corporations and over 236,123 people according to the 2010 Census, its residents have still felt the repercussions of the declining housing market and overwhelming debt in general. It is no secret the southwestern states were the most affected and saw the most significant increase in bankruptcy filings around the nation. Arizona alone saw a 24 percent increase in filings since 2009!
When the housing market fell, financial security also took a hit for many people who found themselves without jobs, increased debt, and homes worth less. Bankruptcy, with its potential to free people from debt payments on unsecured debts, became a popular device for debt relief. Bankruptcy remains a way for many Americans to get their finances under control, eliminate or reduce debt, restructure missed home payments and sometimes lower other secured debt payments such as cars and furniture.
