Mr. Thomas Philip Kelly, III: Attorney with Law Offices of Thomas P. Kelly, III

Biography

The current hard financial times are no mystery to anyone. Foreclosure abuses, predatory lending, bank fees, loan modification scams, and all kinds of banking fraud have exploded. And there are also the life-changing events of huge medical bills, divorce, business failure, and job loss. All of us want to honor our commitments, but remember that the banks and credit card companies have no such moral character. They will use every opportunity to overcharge you with overdraft fees, account fees, bank fees, and anything else they can dream up to take your money. The seek to take advantage of our good faith, and the financial industry mocks us by calling us "debt hampsters." They want to put you on hampster wheel of debt where no matter how much you pay, you will still owe.

Bankruptcy is nothing to be ashamed of - it was created as part of the US Constitution at the founding of the country, and is contained in Article 1, Section 8. Bankruptcy is also perhaps the most powerful legal remedy an individual can use. It automatically stops collections lawsuits, foreclosures, wage garnishments, repossessions, and bank levies. And the discharge of debt gives you the opportunity for a fresh start. For that reason, we use bankruptcy strategically rather than as a last resort, taking the time to work with each of our clients on an individual basis so that they get the maximum benefit from this fundamental right.

Our office has worked with clients from a wide range of backgrounds throughout Northern California, and we handle a wide range of legal matters. The Kelly family has built a reputation over more than 40 years built on a genuine concern for our clients. You won't find any ads for us in the phone book or our names on any billboards. We don't need it. The clients we have helped send thier friends and family to us every day.

If you are facing stress and anxiety, and the bill collectors are hounding you, there is no reason to put up with this. Initial consults are always free, and we can sit down and go through your options. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 707-545-8700. Solid solutions could be just a phone call away.

      Doing a bankruptcy was one of the hardest decisions I’ve made. A lot of anxiety, stress, and having to lay out what I felt were failures. From my first phone call with Mr. Kelly, I felt better about the process. I had credit cards calling and making threats and didn’t even want to open the mail. He just took all the documents and entered all of them on the lists, and he gave me checklists of everything I needed to do. It really was painless, and a huge weight has been lifted from me.

      Had big medical bills and my insurance didn't cover all of it. Had to file bankruptcy to discharge it. Did not want to, and really felt like a failure. Could not have asked for better help. I only had to meet with a court trustee for 10 minutes, and the rest was just painless paperwork and Tom handled it all for me. So relieved. Read less
