Experienced St. Louis Lawyer

At Ledbetter Law Firm, LLC, we help people who are facing serious legal problems. Whether you are facing bankruptcy, have been charged with a DWI in the St. Louis metropolitan area or need to file a claim under Section 1983 of Title 42 of Civil Rights Act of 1871, you can turn to us for help.

About Our Bankruptcy Practice

Primarily, we have built our reputation on helping people get out from under the heavy burden of debt. St. Louis bankruptcy attorney Frank R. Ledbetter has helped thousands of people in eastern Missouri properly file bankruptcy, keep their credit intact and protect their assets, including homes in many cases.

Some of our clients have been able to file for bankruptcy and get a new car loan at an affordable rate the next day. Others have been able to eliminate second or third mortgages and get back on track with restructured, more affordable mortgage payments. Our law firm is one of very few that have been able to do this successfully in the Eastern District of Missouri Bankruptcy Court.

Bankruptcy can happen to anyone. Filing for bankruptcy is not something to be ashamed of:

  • It is an opportunity to restructure your debts and finances.
  • It is an opportunity for a fresh start.
  • Filing for bankruptcy is a constitutional right.

What Can Bankruptcy Do For You?

Bankruptcy can accomplish many of your goals. Making the appropriate bankruptcy filing for your unique case with one of our attorneys can:

  • Stop foreclosure
  • Discharge unsecured debts
  • Eliminate a second or third mortgage
  • Stop lawsuits against you
  • Stop garnishments
  • Stop levies
  • Prevent repossessions

Did You Know Spouses May File For Bankruptcy Separately?

This may be an advantageous option if you want to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy when just one spouse has amassed debt in his or her name and for other reasons. Household finances typically have many moving parts and nuances. It is best to consult an experienced lawyer in any debt relief situation.

At Ledbetter Law Firm, our lawyers help people in St. Louis and the surrounding areas file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, depending on each person's particular financial situation. We help our clients obtain the debt relief they need with cost-effective, client-focused services. Our legal work can help you climb out from under your debt burdens and regain control of your finances.

Our DWI Practice

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated in Missouri, you face a heavy fine, possible time in jail and suspension of your driver's license. We will fight aggressively to help you avoid the harsh penalties.

About Our 1983 Claims Practice

Section 1983 was initially enacted in 1871 under the Ku Klux Klan Act to prevent racial violence in the former confederate states. Under provisions of the act, any person suffering or who has suffered a violation of federal civil rights may bring a lawsuit for action against the negligent party, even though state law does not expressly prohibit the act. We fight aggressively on behalf of individuals who have had their civil rights violated and who are owed compensation through a 1983 claim.
