Directions: The Northwest Houston Office is located at 13201 Northwest Freeway at Hollister, just inside Beltway 8 - Sam Houston Tollway a little ways past the I-610 Loop. Take 610 to U.S. 290 the Northwest Freeway and take the Tidwell - Hollister exit. Take a left going underneath the freeway before the traffic light. The "13201" building is on your right, at the corner with a big Wells Fargo sign on it. There is plenty of free parking in the front. Take the elevator to the eighth floor and we are in Suite 800 on your right in fact when you exit the elevator you are already there. If you are coming from the Northline Mall, Houston Heights, North Sheperd, Garden Oaks, Timbergrove Manor, Independence Heights, Acres Homes, Downtown Houston, Humble, Aldine, IAH Bush Intercontinental Airport, or Fall Creek, get on 610 Westbound.

Driving from the Galleria, Sharpstown, Alief, Missouri City, Sugar Land, Meadows Place, Stafford, Richmond, Fort Bend County, or Rosenberg, take US 59 Northbound to 610 Northbound. Watch for rush hour traffic around the Galleria. This is usually a pretty quick route.

If coming from Memorial City, Spring Branch, Spring Valley, Memorial Villages, Katy, West Houston, or West Harris County, take I-10 Eastbound to I-610 Northbound. This is usually a pretty smooth route but if it gets bad you can take Long Point to Hempstead Highway as an alternate.

Going from River Oaks, Montrose, the Museum District, Midtwon, the Medical Center, West Univeristy, Bellaire, Astrodome, Beechnut, or Braeswood, take I-610 Northbound. Getting to I-610 can be accomplished by taking San Felipe or Westpark if appropriate even if it is busy around town.

If you are coming all the way from Pasadena, LaPorte, Deer Park, HOU Hobby Airport, Clear Lake, Pearland, Friendswood, or Sagemont, I would recommend taking 610 around the east and north side because it is quicker and tends to have less traffic. Because of the freeway location it is easy to get here from all these areas. If you feel like you live too far away try a telephone appointment.

Bankruptcy as a new beginning rather than an end - Doing it once and doing it right!

I like to see bankruptcy as a new beginning rather than as an end. It is a second chance in life to get a fresh start free of debts. We all work very hard and some of us are fortunate enough to have the kind of financial success we want. Unfortunately many of us are not. I help those who have not had good financial luck to get a new start in life. It is not what you do before your file for bankruptcy that matters, it is what you do afterwards. Thanks to credit scoring you can still do well in a relatively short time after your bankruptcy if you do the right things to build your finances and credit. When you hire me you are not only hiring an attorney to help you through your bankruptcy but also an adviser to help you find the tools and resources you need to succeed in the future. I do not want repeat customers, although sometimes it is inevitable. I want my clients to do so well that rather than recommending me as the attorney who has filed both of their bankruptcies they recommend me as the attorney who helped them through their bankruptcy and helped them make sure that they did not have to file again. Here is the link to my page with resources for your future to prevent you from being a repeat client.

Bankrupsy, Bankruptsy, Bankrupcy or which ever alternative spelling you have seen, Bankruptcy is the correct spelling and this is why.

I like to think of bankruptcy as a good thing for you as you are getting relief from your debts and stopping foreclosures, repossessions, and many other bad things from happening to you if you qualify. I know that another spelling might be preferable to you, but let's face it it is what it is regardless of how it is spelled. Think of it as the bank rupturing rather than you! When the bank finds out it cannot collect your debt they are the ones with the loss and you are the one with the gain. We think of bankruptcy as such a bad thing, and I know it is never our first choice, it usually the last one, but the fact is you gain protection from creditors and then most debts get wiped away with the discharge. So whichever way you want to spell it, you should think of yourself as a winner because you turned a very difficult situation into a good one. I look forward to helping you with your debts as I have done for many others.
