General Practice

Bearden Law focuses on criminal defense and debt relief, such as debt collection defense, bankruptcies, credit reporting, and consumer protection. We also handle a variety of civil matters including wills, trusts, and deeds.

If you are dealing with creditor harassment or if you have an issue with credit reporting, please contact us. We can show you how to defend yourself and inform you of your rights. If your rights are violated, we can help you defend your rights in court if necessary or negotiate with creditors on your behalf.

In case you need a bankruptcy, we will help you complete the process. Though bankruptcy is not a quick or easy action, we make sure that it’s the best option for you before we recommend it, and we will help you every step of the way. Bankruptcy is a drastic step, but it sometimes is the only way to escape debt slavery in a reasonable time frame.

If you are accused of a crime, even a minor one like speeding, let us know.  We can help you get a deal with the prosecutor if you are guilty, or mount an effective defense if you are innocent.

If you need help setting up a business entity or drawing up a contract, we can help by making it relatively simple for you.

If you have assets and you want control over how they should be handled should you pass away, let us help you set up the correct legal documents to communicate your wishes to the probate judge.
