I have been representing people in bankruptcy for almost 25 years.  As a previous staff attorney for the bankruptcy court in Western  District of Kentucky, I began my practice in the early nineties and now have five offices throughout Louisville, Frankfort and Southern Indiana.  I am one of only five consumer bankruptcy attorneys in Kentucky that have been certified by the American Board of Certification.  

I have a wonderful staff of women including my daughter who is my assistant office manager and a few good men (my twin sons will be taking the Kentucky Bar in July and joining my firm in August) who love helping people regain their financial life.  Call us today for a complimentary consultation where we will sit down with you and help you understand all of your financial options.

Bankruptcy
I searched for a law firm to help me determine whether or not a chapter 7 was right for my situation. O' Bryan law office staff helped me make the right decision. Their compassionate handling of my case made this tough decision manageable. I would recommend them to people in need of such services.

like family
I recently worked with this firm and the whole family made me feel so welcomed. It was like being around my own family. The paralegals were thoughtful and kind just a great operation during a time that was very stressful for me.

I am so thankful for Julie. She was so caring and helpful through my bankruptcy process and I truly felt like through it all she had my best interest at heart.

Highly Reccomend
Filing bankruptcy is something that I thought about for about a year, and coming to see Julie for the first time was one of the hardest things I have ever put myself through. She immediately put me at ease, and for the first time, I felt like there was a way to resolve my problems. She spent close to an hour with me talking me through all my options, and I left feeling like I made the right decision. When I went to court I was at ease because I knew my case was in her hands. She made realize that there truly is life after bankruptcy, and I am so thankful I was referred to her. I highly recommend Julie!
