About John E. Smith & Associates

The Experience, Knowledge & Personal Involvement You Need

Financial hardships are never easy. Attorney John E. Smith comes from a humble background himself, and remembers the stress of not having enough money to pay creditors, afford things that other families had, or take vacations. Through gravitating to bankruptcy law and founding John E. Smith & Associates, our entire legal staff feels that we are truly helping people in need. The fact that we can relate to hardship while helping relieve stress and keeping people in their homes and cars, provides the sense of accomplishment that we are really doing something good. We never fail to notice that our bankruptcy clients smile more when the work is done.

Cases We Handle

After 35 years of experience and working with over ten thousand clients, there is not much our Galveston County bankruptcy attorney has not seen and we are focused on helping clients through their bankruptcy matters, including:

Within those types of bankruptcy, we work with individuals, consumers, and small businesses. We do a lot of work with small businesses that cannot afford the more expensive Chapter 11 reorganizations. In addition, we can use Chapters 7, 12, or 13 to get them better results with less expense and exposure to creditor litigation.

We have seen and done it all, from going after bad lawyers who were abusing the bankruptcy process and their clients to saving thousands of homes and businesses for the individuals who own them.

A Hands On Approach to Your Case

John E. Smith & Associates is set apart by our practical, hands-on approach to solving problems. Our Galveston County bankruptcy lawyer will personally meet and counsel each client that comes into our office. Even though we have amazing paralegals that have been with the firm since 1987, John Smith personally reviews and/or drafts every document filed with the Court. Our clients can email or call him directly and he always uses his years of experience to see them through their case.

We will begin preparing for a difficult case from the first interview, analyzing and anticipating any problems that can arise. At that time, we begin preparing the strategy to minimize the risk and probable issues going forward. We don’t like being surprised and always strive to be ready for possible issues ahead of time.

Don’t Wait Until It Is too Late to Seek Help

At John E. Smith & Associates, our role in the attorney/client relationship is to offer thorough advice so every client can make an informed decision. This is important, as bankruptcy cases can have a lasting impact on a family’s financial future. We will then work with our clients to carry out their intent in the least-troublesome manner possible.

After all, seeing the smile of relief on a client’s face when their case is over is the most rewarding part of our job and we truly care about all of our clients.
