Nick Thompson Kentucky Bankruptcy
Nick Thompson concentrates his law practice in bankruptcy and foreclosure work. Nick graduated from Murray State University in 1974 with a degree in Political Science and Communications. He studied engineering at University of Louisville Speed School and Geology at the University of Montana. Nick earned his law degree at Mississippi College in Jackson, Mississippi. He became a member of the West Virginia Bar Association in 1988 and went on to work in the State Tax Department’s Litigation division as an assistant attorney general. Nick moved back to Kentucky in 1991 and joined the Kentucky Bar Association in 1991, at which point, he was officially admitted to practice in Kentucky and the Federal Court in Southern Indiana. Nick then went on to open his own law firm specializing in bankruptcy and foreclosure law.
Nick has a secretary, but he has never handed a case over to an associate attorney, paralegal, or support staff, as many other law firms will. Instead, Nick prefers to consult with his clients and prepare their petitions personally. This attention to detail means that all of Nick’s clients get the best possible legal representation from an attorney with decades of experience in bankruptcy and foreclosure law.
Nick lectures at many NBI (National Bankruptcy Institute) and Lorman bankruptcy seminars. Over 500 bankruptcy attorneys, tax and real estate professionals have attended his seminars.
From 1994 to 1995, Nick worked as an assistant county prosecutor in Bullitt County. He also worked as a Federal Public defender under the CJA program from 1992-1998.
“I have been filing bankruptcy cases in Louisville, Kentucky since 1991. I have always tried to be sensitive to my client’s needs. Clients normally file bankruptcy because of a death, divorce, disability or loss of income. My clients are trying to pay their debts. However, through no fault of their own, they are unable to pay their debts. When these tragic events occur they need a fresh start on a new budget. If they can repay their debts they may be required to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. But about 70% of my clients have little or no income and assets, so they qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We have designed our website, manuals and materials so that you can work with us to eliminate the difficulties faced with discharging your debts.”
“Bankruptcy was designed so that the deserving debtor gets a fresh start. You may have noticed that the theme of my office is a fresh green leaf after a spring shower. It is our goal that our clients start over life, like they were born all over again, with that fresh start. We want all their debts to be behind them and forgiven. They will have to budget their new incomes, which are often less than before the events leading to bankruptcy. We work with our clients to design an effective bankruptcy plan, one that eliminates their debt in order to give them a new, bright future.”
“If a bad home mortgage or car loan requires that the property goes back, we try to design the bankruptcy so that it goes back in a way that insures the client is not stuck with a tax debt or deficiency from the foreclosure. The bankruptcy can be the hope of a new life that the debtor planned for instead of a disaster that happened to them. Let us help you plan your fresh start after your disaster.”
