About me

I am a bankrutpcy attorney and primarily represent consumers in chapter 7 and chapter 13 cases. I began private practice in 1984 as a generalist and have practiced in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, workers compensation, family law,  police misconduct litigation, and general civil litigation. I have always maintained a special interest in appellate practice. Increasingly over the years, I have concentrated my practice in bankruptcy and now work in that area almost exclusively.

  • Russell A. DeMott

    Lex is known as the dean of the bankruptcy bar. He's the go-to guy for any bankruptcy attorneys with gnarly issues or complex legal problems. He frequently speaks at seminars and provides excellent materials as he teaches other lawyers how to practice bankruptcy law. Lex is committed to his clients and to upholding the highest ethics standards. I can't say enough good about him, both personally and professionally. If you've got financial problems, you simply can't be in better hands.
