Mr. Padgett is Mobile's most notable attorney and experienced law office when consumer bankruptcies are concerned. He has a large staff and three full time lawyers all doing only bankruptcy work. I trust him to do the best that can be done for his clients. He is always current with the latest bankruptcy laws and requirements. His office is very helpful to the concerns of individuals.
