Very knowledgeable and responsive
I was being harassed by a creditor after declaring bankruptcy. Terry was very knowledgeable. He responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He won my case

Top Notch
Terry Lawson was upfront and thorough with my case. He pulled all the stops for me and got the creditor to drop the case within several months. I was not only impressed with skill and results, but also with his fairness and ethical disposition. I highly recommend him! -Pastor Casey, UMC of Hardin, Missouri.

Outstanding Service
I was really happy with the service I received from Lawson Law Firm. I thought my only option was to file bankruptcy. Lawson Law Firm was able to help me through my entire process, and kept me informed.. They were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone.

Terry Lawson Review
Until six years ago I had no reason to seek the help of a lawyer. Terry was responsive for my needs and I kept his contact info in my wallet, just incase. Recently I had two issues where I needed counsel. I seeked Terry out and he was able to resolve these issues to my satisfaction. These days you don't get the opportunity to hire a lawyer who is professional and personal. I have recommended Terry to friends who maybe in need of a lawyer and would recommend Terry to anyone reading my comments. I still carry Terry's business card in my wallet. Just In Case...

Terry Lawson
Terry has been a great help to me i a couple of different situations. He has put in more than I have expected(and I have high expectations) and doesn't charge for things he doesn't do. Which is the biggest problem with our entire legal system. I would recommend him to anyone that has a problem. If he doesn't specialize in that area he is the first to refer a knowledgeable colleague.
