How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Getting you out of Debt, One creditor at a time. Our primary focus is service. Return of client phones calls, copying all correspondence to the client, and timely prosecution of your case. The firm is Houston, Texas based with Eric Southward as the lead bankruptcy attorney. Michael Busby and Brooke Fusilier both support Mr. Southward along with several paraprofessionals. The firm has filed over 3,000 bankruptcies in the last 10 years. We have discharged millions of dollars in debt. We have helped thousands save their cars and homes. Experience counts and our staff are here to serve you. Filing bankruptcy is filing a federal lawsuit. Once upon a time, in this district, your form could be sloppy and quality control as practiced by the trustee and monitored by the Judges by lax. Now a days, you want an experienced bankruptcy attorney who knows the rules and the practice differences between the trustees and the judges. Busby P.C. is that firm. We go to bankruptcy court at 515 Rusk Houston, Texas almost every day. Our firm is here to assist and get you back on the right track.
