5. WE HANDLE TAX ISSUES AND ASSET PROTECTION PLANNING MATTERS. Along with other debts, many of our clients also have federal, state or local tax issues. The handling of tax issues, either inside or outside of a bankruptcy context is a highly specialized area of the law. Our law firm has a highly qualified Certified Public Accountant, James H. Hoffman, on staff to assist our clients with tax issues. We also have access to other highly-qualified consultants who have years of experience in dealing with tax issues, both inside and outside of bankruptcy. (For more information on Tax Debt Relief , Click Here) Our firm also handles asset protection planning matters from the formation of simple business organization to complex trusts. Since members of our firm have represented both debtors and creditors in a number of debt related cases for many years, we have vast frontline experience in the protection of client assets from their creditors. This experience has proved invaluable to a number of our clients and allowed them to keep assets that would otherwise have been seized by their creditors.

6. USE OF DEBT WORKOUTS/SETTLEMENTS AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO BANKRUPTCY. There are times when it is in a client's best interest to pursue the resolution of their debt issues through debt workouts/settlements with their creditors, instead of filing bankruptcy. Unfortunately, we have seen other attorneys place their clients into bankruptcy in order to collect a larger fee when it would have been much more advantageous to the client to work out a settlement with their creditors. At The Brown Law Firm, we have the knowledge and experience to properly analyze whether a client should be placed in bankruptcy or pursue debt workouts.


7. WE HANDLE FAMILY FARMER/RANCHER BANKRUPTCIES (CHAPTER 12 CASES) AND DEBT WORKOUT CASES. Mr. Brown has been involved in a number of bankruptcy and debt workout cases involving farmers and ranchers. His agricultural background and education provide him with a keen insight when it comes to representing farmers and ranchers in these types of cases.

8. PERSONAL SERVICE. We pride ourselves on giving clients personal service. Our attorneys initially meet personally with each client and they and our staff continue to have personal contact with clients until the completion of their cases. We get to know each client on a first name basis. We promptly return phone calls and respond to emails because your case is important to us. Also, our phones are answered on a 24 hour basis so you can contact us anytime an emergency might arise. We also maintain offices in both Austin and Victoria that are staffed during work hours by attorneys and/or legal assistants.


9. RESOURCES. Although we are not a large "firm", we do have the resources that allow us to handle debt related cases from the simplest debt workout with a credit card company to the handling of complex Chapter 11 business reorganization bankruptcy cases. We have highly qualified attorneys to represent you with vast experience in a number of different areas of the law. Our staff is also highly-qualified, experienced and college educated. Together, the attorneys and staff at The Brown Law Firm combine to provide you with a winning team.


10. FREE INITIAL CONSULTATIONS/ REASONABLE FEES/PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE. In the bankruptcy cases we handle, we provide you with a free initial consultation. Then, if it is not a complicated case, we are able to quote you a flat fee for handling your bankruptcy case so that you know upfront exactly the amount you will be charged. We also provide payment plans with easy terms for our clients. We also utilize legal assistants (whose hourly rates are cheaper than those of attorneys), when your case allows, in order to lower your legal fees.
