“Bankruptcy” can be a daunting, and even frightening, concept. More challenging, however, is the prospect of continuing to be threatened by a lawsuit, foreclosure, garnishment, bank levy, repossession and, of course, annoying phone calls from creditors.
A better way to get a fresh financial start and to deal with these fears was conceived by the founders of our country when they purposefully included in the Constitution the “subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States.” And so, through several incarnations, the present bankruptcy law remains the surest way to obtain a fresh financial start.
However, some of the bigger law firms who represent debtors in bankruptcy are known as bankruptcy “mills.” Clients become mere numbers, calls are never returned, and many people end up frustrated and angry that they entrusted one of their most important legal matters to a bankruptcy “mill.” Other law firms put more effort in marketing their services than in representing their clients because they know people are desperate for help. Both the “mills” and the “marketers,” in our opinion, charge too much for their services and do not provide the personal service clients deserve.
A better way to serve the public is possible. At The Law Offices of Donald E. Hood, PLLC, experienced attorneys provide the highest-quality legal services for a reasonable fee, while respecting the client with personal and dignified legal representation. That is our pledge to you. That is, we believe, a better way!
The Law Office of Donald E. Hood, PLLC focuses on Consumer and Business Bankruptcy Law under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Our bankruptcy lawyers serve the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Our law office is conveniently located in Dallas, Texas.
The new bankruptcy law establishes stricter criteria for filing Ch. 7 bankruptcy cases. A debt can typically be discharged in a Ch. 7 case if it is unsecured, which means there is no property securing the debt.
Filing for bankruptcy is an important decision, and The Law Office of Donald E. Hood, PLLC wants to make sure that the type of bankruptcy protection that you choose is the right one for you.
You are entitled to keep a generous amount of your belongings when filing Ch. 7 bankruptcy. Texas law provides for high personal exemptions–items that are protected from seizure by your creditors.
I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. I was one of eight children, did not have a privileged upbringing, but am extremely grateful for my parents’ many sacrifices. They instilled in me a work ethic that I carry with me to this day.
“Don changed our lives! He is the best!! The only Bankruptcy Lawyer that sat down and went over everything with us. We will never file bankruptcy again.”
I found myself having to make a stressful and life changing decision of whether to file bankruptcy or not.
