About me

Before his successful legal career, Attorney Jared Haddock was a computer software solutions project manager. 

While earning his bachelor's degree in management information technology from Cleary University, Jared worked for an automotive manufacturer's representative firm that specialized in textiles.

After completeing his bachelor's degree, Jared managed software projects for a laser printer service and supply company in Michigan while attending his first year of law school at Wayne State University.

After his first year of law school, Jared was a law clerk for a bankruptcy law firm in Warren, Michigan.  In 2006, Jared founded the Law Offices of J. L. Haddock, PLLC (also known as A Better Future Law Firm and Advantage Debt Relief).

He has utilized his skills in developing innovative software applications from his earlier career and combined them with his extensive legal knowledge and expertise in bankruptcy in order to facilitate a more personal and compassionate relationship with his clients while providing comprehensive and affordable bankruptcy representation.

  • Peter Grant Bissett

    I can strongly recommend Jared, without reservation. I have known Jared since the beginning of law school, and he has always stood out as exceptionally bright, conscientious, and well-principled. For a person going through bankruptcy, Jared is exactly the type of attorney I would recommend: sharp and skilled at the law, but also compassionate, understanding, and well-rounded. Jared is a person of integrity who would be an invaluable ally and advocate in navigating through the bankruptcy process.
