About Thomas McAvity

About me


I’ve been a consumer bankruptcy lawyer since 2000, helping people get out of debt in both Washington and Oregon. I am the managing attorney of Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm. We have bankruptcy law offices in both Vancouver, Tacoma and Seattle, Washington and in both Portland and Salem, Oregon. In addition to our Bankruptcy practice, our firm also sues collections agencies for violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. Recently we have assisting Washington and Oregon consumers with student loan issues as well. 

I grew up in Washington, D.C. but was lucky enough to move to the Pacific Northwest in 1995. When I am not practicing bankruptcy law, I spend the bulk of my time running errands with my golden retriever, Mayzie, for my wife and little boy.

The Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm has been awarded an 'A+' review by the Better Business Bureau. Our bankruptcy practice is  designed to make the most of technology. For example, our clients can complete and submit their bankruptcy paperwork online. In the same vein, we are set up to download tax transcripts and property assessments right off the web. We can even get credit reports for our clients and download the creditors right into their bankruptcy petitions for their approval.

At the Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm, we understand that people in Oregon and Washington have a difficult time coming up with the money to file bankruptcy. Unlike the other firms, we take most of our fees in monthly installments after your case is filed. Our Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, Vancouver and Salem Bankruptcy Law offices are all situated such that our clients don't need to worry about paying and finding parking.

So if you’re having problems and need some help, send me an e-mail or give me a call and we’ll see how I may be able to help you.
