Financial crisis? We are here to help.

If you’re worried about paying your bills, saving your home from foreclosure, protecting your family’s security and ensuring your financial wellbeing, contact us today at our Bessemer office. Our debt relief agency is dedicated to helping homeowners save their homes from foreclosure through loan modification or bankruptcy. Since our founding in 2001, we’ve handled hundreds of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. We help our clients develop custom-designed action plans for becoming debt free.

Life after bankruptcy.

After bankruptcy we want to help protect your fresh start. We are here to help if you have received a bankruptcy discharge and are now receiving collection letters or collection phone calls. Has your mortgage company changed after your bankruptcy case? Have unexplained fees appeared on your mortgage statements? Are your creditors reporting correctly after your bankruptcy case has been closed? If you need help with these issues please give us a call.

Unable to work due to mental and/or physical disability?

The process of applying for disability benefits can be challenging for someone who is not familiar with the system. More than 80% of the people who begin the process on their own have their initial claims turned down. A disability claims attorney can improve your chances significantly by presenting your case in the most favorable light.

We are dedicated to helping families.

Our office handles family law matters such as adoption, divorce, paternity, child custody/visitation, dependency, child support, modification and guardianship for incapacitated adults.

We are your voice.

We recognize that our number one job is to protect our clients and their constitutional rights. You need attorneys who are able to give you objective advice and who can make sure your voice is heard when you are facing a difficult legal situation. We are those attorneys. Whether you are facing financial problems, unable to work, a divorce, you are adopting your stepchild, you were stopped for a DUI, or you were injured in a car accident, our lawyers and staff will help you obtain the best possible outcome.

We are conveniently located.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping individuals, families, and businesses. We have offices conveniently located in Bessemer and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and we assist clients throughout the State of Alabama, the City of Birmingham, and the surrounding counties, including Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, Shelby, Bibb, Walker, Blount, Marion, Winston, Lamar, Fayette Pickens, Greene, and Sumter.

Our clients. In their own words.

Renee T.

It was a very good experience in a very difficult time. Scott was excellent to work with and if I ever need an attorney again he is who I will call.

--Renee T.

Helen M.

Scott made a stressful time in our life so much easier. He explained the legal process and what we should expect in a way we could understand. They kept us informed what was going on the whole time. If we had questions Scott or his paralegal,Jean, were always available to answer them. They were both a pleasure to work with. When you walk up to their door and see the bowls of food and water for the homeless animals you know on the other side of that door you will find kind and caring people.
