Friendswood Bankruptcy Attorney

Foreclosure. Collection calls. Lawsuits. Layoffs. Times are tough. Even in the Houston-Friendswood area. What people need is real help, not promises. We've had enough of those.

Where do you find it?

Debt reduction? Consolidation? Mortgage modification? Promises, promises.

My name is John Smith. For over twenty-nine years, I have been offering real help to people in debt... Take a moment to look through my site. My goal is to answer your questions and give you the information you need to make the right choices. As a native of Houston, I have seen the good times and the bad. I understand when times get tough.
I have tried to provide answers to the most basic questions about bankruptcy in a way that non-lawyers can understand.
I am an experienced, Board Certified* consumer bankruptcy attorney; practicing in the Houston area since 1981. I have helped thousands of individuals and small businesses in Houston and Friendswood, Pearland, Clear Lake and Galveston County get out of debt and get their lives back!
