Lyndsey D. Dilks grew up in Gillett, Arkansas, and attended GillettHigh School until she was accepted into the charter class of the Arkansas School of Math and Science. She earned a degree in Transportation/Logistics from the University of Arkansas in 1998. Ms. Dilks lived in Memphis, Tennessee for several years working in the transportation industry before returning home to Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, William H. Bowen School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctorate in 2006.
 
She began to hone her bankruptcy skills while in law school, and was nominated to represent the 8th Circuit for the American College of Bankruptcy, Distinguished Student Award.

 

Upon obtaining her law license, The Honorable Audrey R. Evans, United States Bankruptcy Court, invited Ms. Dilks to work as a Professional Law Clerk for the United States Bankruptcy Courts of the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas.  After working for Judge Evans through several complex bankruptcy cases, Ms. Dilks entered the private practice of law in 2007 when she joined a consumer bankruptcy firm and began representing more than a thousand bankruptcy clients across Arkansas.

 

In 2008, Ms. Dilks was approached by Brad Hendricks to forge a new department within his firm, focusing exclusively in the area of consumer bankruptcy. Ms. Dilks developed the bankruptcy department from the ground up, filing hundreds of consumer bankruptcy cases all across Arkansas. 

 

In 2013 Ms. Dilks opened her own law firm, DILKS LAW FIRM.  Today Ms. Dilks’ practice expands beyond Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy case filings and includes Fair Debt Collection Practices work and mortgage litigation.  She received extensive training in these areas when she attended Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Bootcamp in March 2009 and again in July 2012.

 

While maintaining an extremely active practice, Ms. Dilks is also very involved in her legal community, holding several offices within various legal organizations.  Ms. Dilks spearheaded the creation of the Bankruptcy Division of ATLA, which is Arkansas’ first Debtors’-Attorneys-only bar organization. Between planning CLE programs and speaking to various organizations about bankruptcy, Ms. Dilks finds the greatest pleasure in knowing that she has helped her client overcome their financial difficulties and obtain the “fresh start” that bankruptcy relief provides.  Let Lyndsey D. Dilks an experienced attorney at DILKS LAW FIRM be your voice when dealing with your creditors.

Lyndsey is a great attorney!!!
Lyndsey helped me manage a deed in lieu of foreclosure for a friend. There was absolutely nothing easy about this transaction, but she tackled it like a pro! I was blown away by her diligence! This thing dragged on and on, but she got it done! I don't know many other attorneys who would have had the patience to get this deal done! She's amazing! Highly recommend!!!

Simple and easy
Ms. Dilks made an uncomfortable and embarrassing situation simple and easy without making it unbearable. She's very easy to talk with and showed no judgement for my making bad decisions in my finances. Her assistant is also very friendly and easy to talk with. The whole process was simple, friendly and very informative. Hopefully, I'll never find myself in this situation again but if I do, I'll be calling Ms. Dilks.

An Outstanding Attorney & Kind Person
When I started to consider attorneys to help with a bankruptcy filing I was impressed with Lyndsey Dilks' qualifications and reputation. I am happy to say that my experience with her and her assistant Lauren couldn't be more positive. Not only were they knowledgeable and professional, they treated me with patience, kindness, and dignity. In such a difficult and intimidating process they listened to my concerns and answered every question. If I called I got a real person. If I emailed, I got a timely response. Lyndsey and Lauren made a tough process so much easier. I would recommend the Dilks Law Firm without reservation.

Very helpful and compassionate
Lyndsey was a great choice from the beginning. I called several lawyers prior to choosing her just to ask about options for my fiance. Everyone was refusing to talk to me (in general) because I was asking for someone else. My fiance had thousands of dollars in medical bills from a company who refused to work with us on payments. She stopped the company from suing him, and walked him through the process of starting to regain his credit. After the bankruptcy filing, several of the clinics tried to reclaim his tax return which had been protected under the bankruptcy. She even talked us through the process of getting all of his money back from them. Lyndsey was kind and compassionate through our entire process, and she really listened to our problems. She did not assume that we had years of bad debt from not paying our bills (90% of our issues were related to medical bills that had mounted from a long term illness). I cannot recommend her enough.

Having Dilk’s law firm help me and my wife with our legal financial issues was of great benefit.
Ms. Dilk’s really helped me and my wife with a financial legal issue that has been bogging us down for years. Very professional yet friendly atmosphere, nice offices and really convenient location downtown. I would highly recommend her services.

WISH I WOULD HAVE CALLED HER 4 YEARS EARLIER.
Lyndsey Dilks made me feel at ease we have been going through a bankruptcy case for 2 1/2 years she has fought for what is right for us and kept us in the loop as to what is going on. I would recommend her to anyone. It was a very hard decision to take this step in the bankruptcy because it can be embarrassing but she and her staff have made me feel like I did the right thing, everybody deserves a second chance.

Recommend this bankruptcy attorney
She reviewed my folder and became as familiar with my case as i was. When i went in her for office visits she stayed on track with my specific problem therefore 100% of my time was spent wisely. In court she had a full command of what we had and what we needed. The Trustee Attorney wanted to drop me from the plan because she said; 'My case did not pass the smell test'. Anyhow i stayed in the plan and the Trustee's motion was dismissed. Thank you Lyndsey.

Excellent lawyer
Ms. Dilks was a pleasure to work with on our case. She is professional and eager to share her knowledge. She is a compassionate person too. We received excellent representation and a trouble free bankruptcy. I recommend her to everyone.

Outstanding credentials & Excellent work ethic
As a frequent presenter at continuing legal education programs I have had occasion to work with Ms Dilks on numerous occasions in the planning and preparation of law conferences. At every turn I have found her to be extremely knowledgeable, well prepared and easy to work with. She has substantial practice experience which she brings to her approach to teaching. She is respected by the bench and bar, and her integrity is of the highest order. I would not hesitate to hire Ms Dilks as my own personal attorney should the need arise, and I recommend her without reservation.

She got the job done but she didn't have to ignore us the whole time
In the end, she got our bankruptcy to go through, against, seemingly all odds, so I am thankful for that. But between staff changes, zero communication and one of the most embarrassing and confusing time in front of the judge during the preliminary bankruptcy court proceedings (that wouldn't have been if she had just counseled us), we were about to lose our minds. She seems like a very self-absorbed rock star diva of the b-ruptcy biz here in LR. The more people I talked to in an attempt to get clarity or advice about her and how we were being treated, the more I heard the wonderful things about her, how she was the best, disbelief that we were unhappy with her. After a year and a half of submitting and re-submitting paperwork after paperwork, I think we actually only met her in person twice. Once again, I appreciate that in the end, she won our case for us and we have been relieved of our financial burdens since, but she could go a long long way towards improving her client and interpersonal skills. We have had no luck in getting any questions answered after the bankruptcy, either. Some issues have come up from time to time that we're not quite sure how to deal with and it has fallen on deaf ears from her ever moving office and staff.

Response from Lyndsey Dilks February 1, 2018
I am truly sorry that you had a negative experience. I do appreciate your candid remarks and I promise I will make every effort to ensure that other clients do not have this feeling. I hope you will contact me directly if you are having issues post-bankruptcy or if you wish to further discuss any of these matters. And I am also sorry that the growing pains of a small law firm negatively impacted you. Staff and logistics can be challenging for a small business. But I can tell you that today we have the best bankruptcy paralegal on the planet working here! She is an experienced bankruptcy paralegal, so sweet, incredibly knowledgeable and anxious to help all of our clients. It takes a team working together to accomplish not only a favorable outcome in the case, but also to provide the support and communication that the clients need to get through the process. Also, we have recently moved again, but I believe this will be Dilks Law Firm's forever home. We are downtown at 1008 Cumberland Street, Little Rock,AR 72202. Again, I appreciate you providing this feedback.
