Serving the Kansas Heartland
Garrett Law LLC is a small consumer bankruptcy firm practicing in Topeka,
Kansas. We focus exclusively on consumer bankruptcies. Most of our clients
come from Eastern and Central Kansas, with a few folks making the trek
from out West. A little over one-half of our clients come to us via referrals
from family, friends, and other attorneys. We value their trust in us.

Our Kansas Families
Most of our clients are middle- and working-class families. They own one
or two cars. They may rent, or may have a modest mortgage. Many of them
make a living with their hands, often as subcontractors or small business
owners. Their kids may be the first generation of their family able to
attend college. We help the young mother and father get a fresh start,
and the elderly couple map out a worry-free retirement. We help families
stay in homes. It is very satisfying work.
All Walks of Life
We are proud to assist a number of military and civil service men and women.
We have a number of clients in retirement, or on disability, who are trying
to make it on a fixed income. Finally, we have many middle-age professionals
and executives who are supporting their children and grandchildren, in
this difficult economic climate. There are many financial pitfalls in
today's economy. We see clients from all walks of life. We make it
our job to help them regain their financial freedom.
Common Types of Debt
Common debts are medical bills, credit cards, payday loans and car notes.
We often get clients who are behind on mortgages and need help catching
up. Although most of our clients get tax refunds, we also see our share
of problems with the IRS and Kansas Department of Revenue. Recently, as
the cost of basic health care has increased, a significant percentage
of our filings are the result of unpaid medical bills — that results
even when the clients have insurance.
In our 12 years of practice, we found that the key to success is the personal
touch. We make certain an attorney is involved in every aspect of every
case, from the original phone call to the final order. This not only results
in better casework – it also establishes personal relationships
that last throughout the case. The better our communication and level
of trust, the better results we can obtain for our people. We are privileged
to provide a huge benefit for suffering families and we like to see the
results of our work.
We are excited about our recent expansion into Central Kansas. The families
of Manhattan, Junction City, Emporia and Salina are under-served by bankruptcy
attorneys – there are just not enough services to go around. We know there
are people with no place to go and no one to turn to. We look forward
to bringing the power of bankruptcy relief to those who need it the most.
If you believe we can help you, please do not hesitate to call.
