Lawrence Willis Founder and Owner of Willis & Associates

 

Attorney Lawrence Willis received his Bachelors Degree in Accounting from Saint Vincent College where he was awarded the Departmental Award for excellence in his Business Accounting.  He then attend Duquesne Law School with a focus on   business, bankruptcy and tax law.  After graduation, he worked for a top five Certified Public Accounting firm in Pittsburgh prior to founding  his own firm.   


Utilizing  his extensive experience in accounting, business  and tax field, Attorney Wills has represented thousands of clients since being admitted in 2001. Willis & Associates remains established as the premier consumer bankruptcy and tax  law firm in Western Pennsylvania . Unlike many law firms, we are not a “jack of all trades” law firm. We do not need to seek work in other areas of law simply because it may provide us a paying client. Our reputation affords us the luxury of being able to specialize in the area of bankruptcy. We receive countless referrals from former clients and their families. Why?

Wills & Associates is a full service bankruptcy firm. We obtain your credit reports to assist you in locating your creditors. We walk you step-by-step through the bankruptcy process. We help you complete all of the complicated forms. We do our best to make an otherwise difficult situation as smooth as possible.


We also only place our clients in the Chapter 13 repayment plan when there is no way to reasonably have their debts wiped out in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcies are typically for people who are trying to save a home in foreclosure; or who earn too much money to qualify for the Chapter 7 wipeout. However, some attorneys will convince clients to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy because the attorney makes more money on these cases. Some attorneys will even make false representations to their clients such as “you will lose your car in a Chapter7 bankruptcy.” At Wills & Associates, you may rest assured that if we advise you to do a Chapter 13 bankruptcy it is only because there are no reasonable alternatives. If another lawyer tells you to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, get a second opinion.
