About James B. Mallory, III

James initially engaged in a general practice to include criminal law, domestic law, wills, estates, as well as bankruptcy work. He served as a Chapter 7 Trustee for nearly 10 years.

His reputation and the increased experience of his staff redirected the focus of his practice. We are now exclusively concentrated on representing individuals and small businesses who are examining bankruptcy as a potential method of resolving seemingly insurmountable financial difficulties.

Arming You With Facts

Arming You With Facts

After experiencing an income reduction, many clients struggle to manage their budgets. Eventually, the homes and properties that people have worked their lives to purchase become at risk. The stress associated with this situation can be devastating in all areas of a person's life.

Our practice is focused on providing clients with the facts concerning all the courses of action available to solve problems with debt. By understanding reorganization through bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy options, clients are able to make fully informed financial and legal decisions.

Dispelling the misconceptions about bankruptcy, focusing on strategies to help clients achieve their financial and personal goals, and helping people regain control of their lives are the most rewarding aspects of our practice.
