My name is Ken Elmer and I love what I do.  Every day I get to help people free themselves from the crushing burdens of debt.  I get to see people transform from being completely overwhelmed by their financial situation to being debt free.  Oftentimes, I get to see them make the emotional transition over the course of our initial meeting in my office, just by finding out what bankruptcy relief will accomplish for them.


I have been practicing bankruptcy for just about my entire career since graduating from law school in 2008.  I have a passion for helping my client's get a fresh start by using the relief offered by the Bankruptcy Code.  I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of clients throughout Alabama to overcome their financial troubles and regain control of their lives, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.


My main focus is to make sure you are fully informed of the complicated legal maze which is the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  We will always be upfront and let you know what your options are.  We will be here when you have questions.  We will represent you in front of your creditors.  We will support you throughout the bankruptcy process – from beginning to end.  Together, we will find a solution that works for you.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Elmer is an excellent bankruptcy attorney, who ensures that the needs of his client's always come first. He is always willing to meet with his client's in person and discuss their particular situations in full detail. He is willing to not only help them with their situation, but to guide them through the entire bankruptcy process from start to finish. As a practicing attorney myself I fully understand the work ethic and skill Mr. Elmer utilizes in his practice. Since I do not practice Bankruptcy issues I refer any of my clients who are looking into bankruptcy to Mr. Elmer. He has always met with them and showed compassion for their situation and been willing to go above and beyond to ensure their matter is handled competently and completely. If you are looking for an attorney to handle Bankruptcy matters for you, you need not look any further.
