Ruston, LA 71270
I am attorney Melanie K. Shrell. I was born and raised here in Ruston, Louisiana. I am a proud graduate of Louisiana Tech University and Louisiana State University. My practice focuses on Bankruptcy and Family Law.
I understand that you have plenty of questions about how bankruptcy works and whether bankruptcy is right for your finanical situation. I offer a free inital consulation. During this consultation, we will discuss together your individual financial situation and what is important to you. I promise to give you honest answers. Sometimes, bankruptcy might not be the best option for you. If it isn’t, I will tell you. I will not put you in a case that will not help you. My goal is to help you and empower you and to help you find a solution. If you decide bankruptcy is right for you, you will deal with me directly, not a paralegal, through your entire case.
If you are considering bankruptcy, I know you are going through a tough financial time. I understand the last thing you need is to miss work to meet with me. Therefore, in addition to my normal hours, I offer all my clients the opportunity to schedule night and weekend appointments.
