Are You Involved in a Family Law Dispute?

Few challenges in life may be as complicated to confront as a family law dispute. Whether you are facing several issues in a pending divorce or something else beyond this context, it’s not always easy. You need a legal advocate who understands you need both aggressive advocacy and compassionate counsel. We offer both and more at the Law Offices of Mark M. Childress, PLLC.

Whether you need assistance with divorce, child custody, visitation, paternity, or another important issue, we can be there to support you through it. We can even assist clients in family law matters that may involve minor or no inherent legal disputes, such as adoption and estate planning.

Were You Charged with a Crime?

If you are facing criminal charges, it’s essential to secure competent legal counsel you can trust. Your freedom, reputation, livelihood, and more may be on the line – don’t allow just any lawyer to take your case.

Our criminal defense attorneys have many years of experience advocating for our clients, who have faced both misdemeanor and felony charges. We understand what’s on the line when you’ve been charged with DWI, a theft crime, weapons charges, or even when your minor child is accused of a crime.

Immediately get in touch with us so you can have a better chance at a brighter future.

Are You Suffering from an Injury Someone Else Caused?

When someone else is responsible for a severe injury, you can hold them accountable with a personal injury lawsuit. Those who are severely injured by another person’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts can incur medical debt, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

By taking legal action, you can pursue compensation for these damages. Achieving meaningful compensation, however, requires dedicated legal support that cares about your outcome. You can find that level of representation and a lot more when you entrust the Law Offices of Mark M. Childress, PLLC with your personal injury claim.

Are You Overwhelmed with Consumer Debt?

People can become overwhelmed by debt for many reasons, and it’s often due to circumstances beyond their control. A lost job can cause credit card bills to soar, and a medical emergency that insurance won’t cover can clean out a savings account. No matter the reason you’re in debt, you need help out of it.

The Law Offices of Mark M. Childress, PLLC can offer the bankruptcy services you need to overcome your debt. Whether you intend to file for Chapter 7 liquidation or Chapter 13 reorganization – or you aren’t sure what you should do – we can provide the guidance necessary to help you through this difficult time.
