Practice area
  1. Bankruptcy and debt

    22 years, 4,000 cases

For the past fourteen years I have prided myself on finding the right financial solution for people facing debt issues.  Even though I make a living on helping people file for bankruptcy, I am always upfront on ways to avoid bankruptcy.  Not all financial problems warrant a bankruptcy, which is why I offer a free consultation to discuss the pros and cons of bankruptcy as well as bankruptcy alternatives. 


Once a client has made an informed decision to file for bankruptcy, I will provide a full and complete service making the client do as little as possible.  I am always accessible to my clients via email, phone, or in-office.  Bankruptcy is a difficult process to go through emotionally, so I aim to make it as painless as possible for my clients.

I have been a realtor since 2005. Like many, I didn’t expect the market crash and had overextended myself financially. Up until the crash, bankruptcies were unheard of to me so I set my family and health aside to work countless hours as I attempted to avoid the inevitable. I was blessed to find a decent paying job during those times yet it still wasn’t enough. I eventually decided to consider bankruptcy because I realized that sacrificing my health and my family were not worth protecting my credit score and worldly possessions. I consulted with several bankruptcy attorneys. They each made me feel that my situation was complicated and impossible. I quickly found out that obtaining employment with decent pay was both a blessing and a curse at the same time. I was told by several attorneys that I made too much money to qualify yet I was struggling to simply keep food on the table. I left each of their offices feeling ashamed, overwhelmed and hopeless. I was exhausted from the sleepless nights and countless hours of work yet I saw no other options. I couldn’t even find a way to give up so I continued researching options and trying bankruptcy attorneys in hopes of a miracle. In my quest for resolution, the few attorneys that even indicated a glimmer of hope said that my situation wasn’t possible without skewing a few facts. I couldn’t do it; I wanted to find an honest way to resolve the financial burden. I finally found that in Christian Younger. He truly was my miracle that I had been praying for. He is a man of integrity and was able to finally put our difficult times behind us and give us a fresh start. -Hindsight, my situation was never impossible. It was just far too complicated for the other bankruptcy attorneys who were looking for easy cases and easy money. Nothing was as overwhelming and impossible as the other attorneys had made me feel once I found Christian Younger. He took the reins and quickly helped me resolve my financial problems. From the time that I met Christian, the bankruptcy process was quick and not the least bit complicated. The fact that he took the time to educate me on the process and involve me in every decision helped to restore my dignity and made me feel that I had control of my life for the first time in a long time. Essentially, he gave me my life back. My humbling experience inspired me to educate myself and specialize in foreclosure alternatives. I assist both realtors and homeowners who often are in need of a good bankruptcy attorney. Like myself, many have consulted with other attorneys only to be told that their situation was impossible. Many have also already initiated the bankruptcy process with other attorneys. Often times, I see that their attorneys have done little to educate them and involve them in the decisions that affect their lives so significantly. Sometimes their bankruptcies are even at a standstill or dismissed with them not having the slightest clue on what occurred, or what to do next. To be frank, I’m appalled by the number of clients I have encountered in which their bankruptcy attorneys have collected their money only to leave them stranded high and dry. I recommend Christian Younger every time. I have referred countless families in desperate situations to Christian over the years and have not had a single complaint. Nearly all of them have come back to me to thank me for connecting them with him, sharing similar experiences to what I’ve shared as my own. With Christian Younger, you are not just a number. He truly has heart for what he does and cares about his clients. He will do all within his power to help you. He takes the time to explain the process thoroughly, to educate you on your options so that together you can decide what is best for you and your family. Needless to say, I highly recommend Christian Younger. From both a personal and a professional standpoint, there is no better attorney out there in my opinion.

Chapter 7
Christian is an awesome attorney and just an all around good guy. He knows the law inside and out. He's organized and concise. I was shopping attorney's at other firms prior to choosing Christian as my attorney. One in particular was a big name firm and the attorney who supposedly managed the bankruptcy team was going to take my case. This guy was a total joke, didn't know the simplest things about law that even I knew as a Criminal Justice major. He was very aloof much like a college student who eats top ramen and rolls out of bed to get to class late. After meeting with Christian, there was no comparison as far as understanding of the law and being organized. Christian was the clear choice.
