Firm Overview

Get debt relief in Tennessee

When you are struggling to manage debt, you just want someone to help you get beyond the uncertainty. If you are disabled and can no longer work to provide for yourself or your family, and have been denied Social Security benefits, you need somebody who will stand up for you.

You want relief.

I am attorney Jim Paris, and I've been helping people throughout Tennessee, Northwestern Georgia and Northeast Alabama get through their most pressing financial problems since 1972. When you contact my office, you get straight talk, honest answers and sound legal solutions so you can have that fresh start, make debts more manageable or get the disability benefits you worked so hard for.

At the office of Jim Paris, Attorney at Law, we focus on two areas of the law: bankruptcy and Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI).

As a Consumer Bankruptcy Law Specialist certified by both the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization and the American Board of Certification, I receive positive references from my clients and my peers. As a bankruptcy trustee, I know how the other side thinks and can plan a strategy to help you achieve the best possible outcome. I guide you to make the choice that's right for you whether it's a fresh start through Chapter 7 bankruptcy or debt restructuring and repayment through Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

If you have been paying into the Social Security system and your benefits have been denied, I work to get you the benefits you deserve. In fact, I've received favorable results in Social Security Disability cases 97 percent of the time. As a disabled worker, you may also be facing financial challenges. I can help you decide if bankruptcy might be an option to help you put your life back on track.

Chattanooga Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Bankruptcy isn't the end it's a chance for a new beginning

Choosing bankruptcy isn't an easy decision, but it may be the best choice. If you're struggling to keep up with credit card debt, medical bills, utility or car payments, making the rent, or if you're facing foreclosure, bankruptcy is an option you should explore.

As an experienced bankruptcy attorney, I understand how stressful the situation is and can help assess your situation, lay out your options and inform you about the process so you can make a decision you can live with. I have been helping people in Chattanooga and throughout Southeastern Tennessee, Northwestern Georgia and Jackson County, Alabama get through financial difficulties since 1972 and am a Consumer Bankruptcy Law Specialist, certified by Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization and the American Board of Certification.

Getting a fresh start through Chapter 7 bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often called fresh start bankruptcy because it may allow you to eliminate much of all of your unsecured debt, including money owed on credit cards, payday loans, medical bills and some personal loans. What's more, it stops creditor harassment and lawsuits, wage garnishment and liens. As a Chapter 7 trustee, I have a unique insight into how the system works and am a tough negotiator on your behalf.

Making debt manageable through Chapter 13 bankruptcy

If you or your spouse have been laid off or had your hours or pay reduced, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often the answer. If your wages won't allow you to pay all your bills, including your mortgage, and you are in danger of having your vehicle repossessed or your home foreclosed on, Chapter 13 allows you to catch up by reorganizing your debt and creating a workable, three-to-five-year repayment plan while allowing you to keep your assets.
