Coronavirus Update (3/31/21)

To Our Present and Future Clients

Hello, world!

Please know that as the world begins to re-open, we never left! We have kept busy during this last year filing bankruptcies and helping our clients get a fresh start. But there will be challenges ahead for everybody.

This past year of lockdown has certainly been a challenge for everyone, and as we start to get back to “normal”, plenty of people will need to address the fallout from loss of jobs, living on stimulus money, and other financial challenges that come from a year-long lockdown. But we’re here for you still, and always have been.

We have done over a hundred consultations by phone over the last year, but we definitely miss seeing our clients in person. We so look forward to the in-person client care we have always been known for. In fact, before Covid, we would not do telephone consultations because we have always felt that in-person consultations are a better way to fully assess a person’s financial situation, and it allows you-our clients-a better opportunity to assess us as your potential partner in getting you a fresh start. We still believe this is true. As we transition to putting the pandemic behind us, we look forward to meeting our clients again face to face. We may never go back to “no telephone consultations”, but we will definitely bring back in-person consultations soon as one of many ways to better serve our clients and provide the best bankruptcy representation possible.

While the practice of law (like most industries) has gone through fundamental changes this past year, meeting people face to face is kind of an old fashioned idea that we hope never goes out of style; it’s simply the best way for us to get to know each other.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Our office will continue to operate and be your full-service bankruptcy firm.

We look forward to “seeing” you soon!

What Our Clients Say About Us

Our practice is built on the referrals of our clients.

The office is not your typical stuffy attorney’s office. Since this was my first experience I was very nervous but they really put me at ease and from that point on I knew that I was in good hands.

Scott made us comfortable with our decision and helped us through the entire process. He made it as painless and simple as such a thing can be, and all without charging the exorbitant prices that many others do!

Greetings to all,

Mere words do not compare to the deep gratitude I feel for everyone this concerns. You guys rock!!

Never thought the bankruptcy process could be so easy but Scott Bell made it that way. Not only is he knowledgeable, professional, and experienced in bankruptcy cases but he is down to earth and his rates were not over the top.

Thanks for turning my life around Scott!


Thank you so much for the help on my bankruptcy. I really don’t know how I would have made it through it without the help and compassion from you and your staff. It is something I never thought I would have to do. I would recommend you as an attorney for anyone. I will always say how much all of the people in your office were so kind to me.

Thank you again!

Mr. Bell and Staff:

The threatening phone calls have stopped and we no longer lie awake at night wondering how we will crawl out of a financial hole.  I know we paid you for your work and expertise, but you and your staff exceeded our expectations and made the painful process of declaring bankruptcy smoother than we could have hoped for, and I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for giving us peace of mind.
