Hurst, TX (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
With the still-sluggish economy slow to pick up, more and more local residents are forced to file for bankruptcy in order to save their homes and assets from being seized by creditors.
The Lee Law Firm (http://www.Leebankruptcy.com), a new practice located on Bedford Euless Road in Hurst, is focused on helping financially-strapped residents of Tarrant, Parker, Denton, Johnson, Hood, Collin, Ellis, Kaufman, Somervell and Wise counties achieve a debt-free life.
“Although the economy is supposed to be picking up, thousands of good, hard-working people in our area are still suffering from the havoc wreaked by the recession,” says Christopher Lee, owner of the new firm. “They have lost jobs, accumulated unexpected medical bills or other expenses they can’t pay in a timely manner. For these folks, filing bankruptcy is an effective – and sometimes the only - way to get financial relief.”
Lee, who has successfully handled thousands Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases as partner in Allmand & Lee, the largest bankruptcy law firm in Texas that he had helped establish in 2007, says his new practice will provide “a big firm expertise and professionalism with the flexibility and affordability of a small firm.”
Lee, who specializes in mortgage loan modification work, says the Lee Law Firm, which employs three other bankruptcy attorneys, will work with local consumers to help them eliminate debt, lower their monthly payments, as well as stop foreclosures, repossessions, garnishments, and calls from creditors.
“A lot of people hesitate to seek help because of the myths and misconceptions surrounding bankruptcy,” Lee notes. “However, I and my attorneys are here to show them that, if handled properly and according to law, bankruptcy will give them an opportunity to rebuild their credit and provide a measurable relief from debt.”
“We focus on getting to know our clients and the nature of their problems, and then provide the best and most sound legal advice possible,” he adds.
A 2003 graduate of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, Lee is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, the Dallas County Bar Association, the Tarrant County Bar Association, and the American Bankruptcy Institute. He is also a longstanding member of the American Bar Association, as well as the Tarrant County Young Lawyer Association, the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers, and the American Consumer Bankruptcy College.
