Meet Douglas J. Powell:

Each client will work directly with Mr. Powell to create a solid plan to achieve a Fresh Start. Together, we find an approach that helps you make ends meet. Mr. Powell has helped thousands of families find relief, and he is committed to helping you and your family as well.

Douglas J. Powell grew up in Crockett, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas in May of 1981. He attended The University of Houston College of Law and graduated in May of 1984. He has been a licensed Texas Lawyer since 1984. He became Board Certified in Consumer Bankruptcy Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in December of 1990, and has held this certification since that time. Mr. Powell has successfully handled thousands of cases under chapters 7, 11, and 13 under the Federal Bankruptcy Code.

Our main goal throughout this process is to help you get the fresh financial start that you need by eliminating your dischargeable debt. We explain the requirements of Chapter 7, including the Means Test, so that if filing for Chapter 7 is right for you, you will understand how filing for Bankruptcy will help you achieve a Fresh Start from your financial situation. We will make sure that you know how the process works, and how it will impact your outstanding debt.

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.
