Practice areas
  1. Bankruptcy and debt
    25%
    I have filed literally thousands of consumer bankruptcy cases since I began practicing law in 1992.

    32 years, 2,000 cases

  2. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    25%
    Our firm has filed more Chapter 13 bankruptcies than most every other law firm in Northeast Florida. We not only eliminate our clients' debts, we help them rebuild their credit during the Chapter 13 case using proven strategies.

    32 years, 1,000 cases

  3. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    25%
    Our firm has filed more Chapter 7 bankruptcies than most every other law firm in Northeast Florida. We not only eliminate our clients' debts, we help them rebuild their credit using proven strategies.

    32 years, 1,000 cases

  4. Foreclosure
    20%
    I have been litigating against mortgage companies since 1992, but until 2007, it had been limited to bankruptcy court. In 2007, I shifted away from my family law litigation practice to take on the mortgage industry in state court foreclosure cases. My firm now dedicated 200+ hours per week to our foreclosure defense practice, and we have developed a complex litigation model which we continually modify and fine-tune.

    18 years, 500 cases

  5. Consumer protection
    5%
    I sue debt collectors who violate federal and state collection laws. If I win the case, the debt collector must pay me my fees. You would be entitled to statutory damages and actual damages. Don't let debt collectors harass you, oppress you or abuse your rights!

    18 years, 100 cases

Don’t JUST file bankruptcy! Eliminating your debts only solves half the problem, but restoring your good credit will change your life. Likewise, breaking the cycle of bad credit means paying less for the things you need. Everything from car and house payments is lower when you have good credit. Our holistic approach to your financial situation is unlike other law firms and is the best solution for building your future. We help you rebuild your credit after bankruptcy or foreclosure through our proven credit restoration program.

The lawyers of Blue Bee Bankruptcy Law have dedicated their practice to you. As one of Utah's premier bankruptcy law firms, we believe that our clients deserve the highest quality services, and we strive to make client satisfaction our #1 goal.

Work with someone who cares and will get it done.
Had another bankruptcy attorney before Chip and they constantly made me feel like a criminal just for speaking to them. Chip from the get go made me feel like he wanted to help. Then got the job done. Sandy was phenomenal as well.

Great value and quality attorney and firm
From start to finish the quality of service I received from both Chip and Sandy was top notch. I was so pleased with their availability to answer questions, time it took to reach them and get responses, and the ease with which they worked with me. I appreciated Chip's expertise and his personable attitude with me and his willingness to explain everything that could be somewhat tricky otherwise. The value I received was unbelievable! I highly recommend this law firm and Chip P.

Exceptional Service
I would recommend Blue Bee Bankruptcy and Chip Parker to anyone considering a bankruptcy. Their interactions are extremely professional, they respond to questions promptly for whatever you need, and they keep you informed every step of the way through the process. Mr. Parker's assistant, Sandy, is exceptional, and helped me enourmously throughout my entire bankruptcy. I am extremely grateful to them, and would advise anyone considering a bankruptcy filing to list this office as their first choice. Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Chip and Sandy were a huge help every step of the way on my bankruptcy case. I have already raised my score due to bankruptcy classes they sent me. What a relief calling this attorney. I've only lived in Utah for 3 years. I couldn't have found a better attorney anywhere else. Thank you!!

The positive reviews did not lie!
Chip Parker and his paralegal Sandy were fantastic to work with for preparing my bankruptcy filing. Like most people in this situation, I was really nervous and clueless on how to navigate bankruptcy. I chose Blue Bee Bankruptcy Law after reading reviews and my experience was just as expected! Chip and Sandy are experts in bankruptcy and were able to explain everything as they were happening in terms I could understand. I was able to email them whenever I had a question and they were prompt at responding. Chip was proactive in preparing me for the 341 meeting (can be very nerve-wracking for people), called me before and after . The meeting went smoothly thanks to Chip. I would highly recommend choosing Blue Bee for preparing your bankruptcy case. Thanks for everything! Now I can have a fresh start after the past 3 years of difficulties in my life.

Easy Process
Chip Parker and his paralegal Sandy were great in helping me file my case. I was very hesitant on the process but after speaking to Chip he eased my mind. The consultation addressed all my concerns and the email I received after the consultation was a great source of information. Sandy was very responsive and was clear on what was needed to file. There was no back and forth and communication was effective. I knew exactly what would happen in the entire process and was assured that my case would be processed on time.

Professional and Polite
Chip and his paralegal Sandy are by far the best legal team I have ever worked with. Filing for bankruptcy can be a difficult and stressful process (and even more so if you are being garnished) however Chip and Sandy took care of everything and made the whole process as simple and stress free as possible. If I had any questions they were very responsive via email, text and phone calls. If you are like I was and reading these reviews to help you decide which attorney to hire then trust me, you have found the right place.

Excellent Service
If you are at a point where you are considering filing for bankruptcy, then you probably need to. Blue Bee is a small but experienced firm. Bankruptcy obviously is not fun but I felt valued as a client and they seem to enjoy the work they do. From my initial consultation with Chip Parker I knew I would be in good hands. He very clearly explained everything from the types of bankruptcy, the processes for filling for each and the fees that Blue Bee would charged, and there was no pressure or hard sell. The most important part of filing for bankruptcy is being prepared for the 341 meeting. Sandy Carpenter, the paralegal, is a pleasure to work with and did an excellent an meticulous job helping me getting all my statements and forms together. If I had any questions or concerns, she would get back to me in a very timely manner. I felt completely prepared and confident going into the 341 meeting. The fees they charge are straight forward and not confusing. I can't recommend Blue Bee highly enough!

Review B3 law
I turned to B3 law after being scammed for a large amount of money. Mr Parker was very knowledgeable and walked me through everything his paralegal Sandy was the most caring and supportive person and was also very knowledgeable. Even though I had a unique case they stuck by me.

Great Experience!
Chip Parker and his firm are the pinnacle example of ethics and care. I had several consultations with other highly-rated firms. None have gone as above and beyond as he and his team. It was clear to me, with how carefully he reviewed my case and the circumstances surrounding it, that I was in good hands. He addressed all my concerns and educated me on the complicated judicial processes. And just to show how much he cares, at gratis, he even offered and prepared a detailed answer to the court for our use. I am thankful to have found him and am more than happy to recommend his services!

Outstanding
I’ve never filed bankruptcy and so I knew nothing about the process or what to expect. I knew I wanted a lawyer that would actually help me. Someone who I felt I could trust to do the best job that they could. Not just take my money and never respond to me. I was SO scared to go through this process that I put it off way longer than I should have. But after working with Chip and Sandy I wish I would have done it sooner. Every time I had a question I could email Sandy and she would respond super quickly. They made the process SO easy and were there to answer any questions I had, whenever I had them. Blue Bell Bankruptcy is fantastic! If your trying to find a good, helpful, and caring lawyer to help you through this scary time, look no further you found them! They went above and beyond all of my expectations. Chip and Sandy for the win!

A Talented Law Firm that Cares About Your Outcomes
We located Chips firm through reviewing other people’s experiences on the Internet. We selected the firm initially because the Paralegal, Sandy, was exceptional, listened well and gave the feeling she cared about our family; she also spoke very highly of Chip. In working with Chip, our family was being taken advantage of by an attorney trying to keep us from refinancing our home by refusing to release the home lien unless we paid him money not legally owed. Chip, was prompt to address the problem through some strong communication, he also took time to research the situation to validate our position, he then negotiated a settlement for much less than was being demanded and was very aware of the need for timely resolution. It was hard to pay any settlement when you knew you didn’t owe any money, but it was very appreciated by our family to have someone with the intellect to know when a settlement is more beneficial than a lawsuit and provide sound advice. We would highly recommended using Chip…intelligent, highly trained and effective. It was also very nice to feel we were being represented by a good man and an exceptional paralegal.

B3 is the answer!
Blue Bee Bankruptcy is the way to go! They were the first firm that I contacted once I decided to file and I’m glad that I stuck with them. What mattered most to me was the way that Mr. Parker and Sandy treated me. They were TRULY empathetic, understanding, and more than willing to guide me through a situation that I could no longer handle on my own. I even needed to postpone filing for 6 months and we picked up like I’d never stopped the process. I couldn’t have imagined making it through this chapter of my life without their help. They ARE AMAZING and worth your time! My end goal was never to hang my discharge on the mantle but to find a way out of a hole and find ways to never end up here again. Get help from people who won’t judge you or make you feel less than because you are filing bankruptcy.

Can't Do Better!
Recently I needed a bankruptcy lawyer. Online reviews overwhelming favored Chip Parker. From my first phone call with Chip, I knew I was speaking to a knowledgeable, caring professional. Importantly, Chip stressed the importance of making the bankruptcy easy and comfortable. That's exactly what happened. I had much interaction with Sandy as my documents were submitted to the office. Sandy was patient and always available to answer my questions. Both Sandy and Chip calmed my fears and treated me with respect. Chip even offers a free credit improvement course! I can't thank Chip and Sandy enough for being in my corner throughout the bankruptcy process. For these reasons and more, I highly recommend Chip Parker for your bankruptcy needs.

I was hesitant to file bankruptcy especially because it can be scary talking to attorneys and people in that field. Chip and Sandy made the process extremely easy and were incredibly responsive! If I had any questions, I did not hesitate to shoot them an email or text. All of my questions were answered very quickly and there was nothing I was unclear about. They made the process easy and not stressful at all. I have recommended this firm for those in my life looking to file bankruptcy! Thank you so much for making this process easy and helping me gain financial freedom!
