About Me

Lyndsey D. Dilks grew up in Gillett, Arkansas, and attended GillettHigh School until she was accepted into the charter class of the Arkansas School of Math and Science. She earned a degree in Transportation/Logistics from the University of Arkansas in 1998. Ms. Dilks lived in Memphis, Tennessee for several years working in the transportation industry before returning home to Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, William H. Bowen School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctorate in 2006.
 
She began to hone her bankruptcy skills while in law school, and was nominated to represent the 8th Circuit for the American College of Bankruptcy, Distinguished Student Award.


 


Upon obtaining her law license, The Honorable Audrey R. Evans, United States Bankruptcy Court, invited Ms. Dilks to work as a Professional Law Clerk for the United States Bankruptcy Courts of the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas.  After working for Judge Evans through several complex bankruptcy cases, Ms. Dilks entered the private practice of law in 2007 when she joined a consumer bankruptcy firm and began representing more than a thousand bankruptcy clients across Arkansas.


 


In 2008, Ms. Dilks was approached by Brad Hendricks to forge a new department within his firm, focusing exclusively in the area of consumer bankruptcy. Ms. Dilks developed the bankruptcy department from the ground up, filing hundreds of consumer bankruptcy cases all across Arkansas. 


 


In 2013 Ms. Dilks opened her own law firm, DILKS LAW FIRM.  Today Ms. Dilks’ practice expands beyond Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy case filings and includes Fair Debt Collection Practices work and mortgage litigation.  She received extensive training in these areas when she attended Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Bootcamp in March 2009 and again in July 2012.


 


While maintaining an extremely active practice, Ms. Dilks is also very involved in her legal community, holding several offices within various legal organizations.  Ms. Dilks spearheaded the creation of the Bankruptcy Division of ATLA, which is Arkansas’ first Debtors’-Attorneys-only bar organization. Between planning CLE programs and speaking to various organizations about bankruptcy, Ms. Dilks finds the greatest pleasure in knowing that she has helped her client overcome their financial difficulties and obtain the “fresh start” that bankruptcy relief provides.  Let Lyndsey D. Dilks an experienced attorney at DILKS LAW FIRM be your voice when dealing with your creditors.
