Bankruptcy Help For Everyday People

About Our Firm: Focused On Helping People Take Control Of Their Futures

If you need legal help, wouldn’t you rather work with a local attorney than a large, big city firm where you never get to actually meet with your lawyer?

At many large firms, you won’t meet face to face with your lawyer until you go to court or to a critical meeting. Instead, paralegals and legal assistants will handle the bulk of your case.

At the North Carolina law firm of Wootton & Wootton, we do things differently. We are a local, family-owned law firm dedicated to a truly personal approach to client service. Here, the attorneys you see on TV are the attorneys you get. From your first consultation through the conclusion of your case, you will work directly with a lawyer.

Our attorneys have lived in the Durham community their entire lives. We’re not just your attorneys; we’re also your neighbors.

Our Commitment To You

At our firm, you can expect:

  • Compassion: We understand how stressful financial problems can be, and we will treat you with compassion throughout your case. We are here to help you.
  • Experience: With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, we are confident we can help you find the right debt relief solution for your unique situation.
  • Client-centered focus: You, the client, are our No. 1 concern as a law firm. Once you meet with us and bring in all your essential financial information, we will do the work for you. We will walk you through every step of the bankruptcy process and keep you updated along the way.

Securing The Present; Protecting The Future

While our primary focus is bankruptcy and debt relief. Most people need just a few simple documents. We are committed to high-quality service without all the bells and whistles, which saves you time and money.

Our Attorneys

After practicing law since 1965, our senior attorney, Clyde Wootton, founded the firm in 1998. Clyde partnered with his son to help everyday people become debt-free. Learn more about our lawyers through the links below.
