About me

I have committed my professional life to assisting those who are having debt problems make a reasoned decision of whether or not to file bankruptcy.More importantly I encourage my clients to take the time to meet with me, slow down, and not make any panicked decisions. We discuss all of the options and with the benefit of my 32 years of experience helping thousands of people, decide if bankruptcy is right for you and if so what chapter will be the best choice and when will be the best time to file. It never ceases to amaze me when I go to the bankruptcy court hearings and witness cases that have been filed under the wrong chapter or at the the wrong time. Don't be one of those people. Most people only file bankruptcy once in their life.Take your time and do it right!Conversely,if there is an emergency and a need to file quickly,to stop a garnishment or a foreclosure or whatever the case may be, and you qualify for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 and have completed and obtained your pre- bankruptcy counseling certificate we can file your bankruptcy within a matter of a few hours if necessary.

  • Richard D. Granvold

    I endorse this lawyer. Why? Although there are many attorneys who may practice, Donald provides complete and full accurate advice to persons whom I have spoken to, and who appreciate having him as their attorney, as opposed to some persons who complain about their attorneys lack for replying, communicating, etc. I have referred many persons over to Donald through the years and will continue to do so knowing they are in complete good hands under his guidance and assistance in filing bankruptcy. Options are something clients should see and he can provide those so the client is fully informed.
