The Law Office of Tipton-Downie

Drowning in Debt?


Work with a Bankruptcy Attorney to Explore Your Options.


Filing for bankruptcy is a difficult decision, and one that you should not take lightly. You  shouldn’t be given the expectation that there are no consequences. The best way to achieve results in debt relief is to discuss your specific needs with an experienced attorney who will remain committed to your case.

During a bankruptcy hearing, a judge may ask you if you have actually met with an attorney. It’s not a question judges have always asked. In fact, the question must be asked because of one of the latest trends in debt relief— the advent of “bankruptcy mills.” These agencies claim to provide debt relief options to people struggling with financial hardships, but often fail to provide any direct representation.

Our bankruptcy attorneys will make you aware of all possible options in your case.

What Can You Expect From A Consultation with a Bankruptcy Lawyer?

The Law Office of Tipton-Downie, P.C., provides personalized representation to individuals in need of debt relief. Bankruptcy attorney Sarah M. Tipton-Downie will discuss the pertinent details of your financial situation during your initial consultation with our firm. This may include your schedule of debt, credit report, assets, and income. We will use all of this information to help you arrive at an appropriate solution.

Expect straightforward answers to your questions on all of these topics:


  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy
  • Foreclosure defense
  • Restructuring and modifications of payment plans
  • Wage garnishment and frozen bank accounts
  • Harassment from creditors
