Let's get you back on your feet

We've been helping Austinites find financial relief through bankruptcy for over thirty years.

You don't have to go through this alone.

Since our founding in 1988, we've helped thousands in Austin - both creditors and debtors - through the bankruptcy process.

We know that times are tough right now.

That's why we're here to help you get back on your feet.

I can not say enough about how excellent Doug and his team are. From the beginning of the process he was knowledgeable and very reassuring. A normally painful process was rather painless. I would recommend anyone in need of bankruptcy assistance to give Doug a call. You will not regret it.

Get your life back

For many people, filing for bankruptcy is the right course of action.

The emotional and physical stress that results from constant worry and from constant harassing calls from creditors can be overwhelming. Having to use one credit card to make payments on another and never having savings in the bank can wreck your well-being and undermine your marriage and family. For some, obtaining debt relief can be life-saving.

In addition to stress-relief, there are many other advantages of filing for bankruptcy, including:

  • Relief from harassing creditors through the automatic stay
  • Preventing foreclosure
  • Stopping most wage garnishments
  • Obtaining permanent debt discharge or an affordable payment plan through a reorganization of debt
  • Preserving certain assets, like the family home, from seizure by creditors through use of bankruptcy personal exemptions
  • Beginning the process of rebuilding financially post-bankruptcy
