With more than two decades of experience, attorney Michael G. Pond is well prepared to help you regain your financial health. Mr. Pond's educational, personal and professional experiences set him apart from other Jackson-area consumer bankruptcy lawyers. Before he attended law school, Mr. Pond obtained a degree from the University of Texas at Tyler majoring in Economics and Finance. The accounting, finance and economic coursework are all relevant and beneficial to his consumer bankruptcy practice. He then spent several years employed in the banking and consumer financial services sector, first as a collections manager for a Texas-based mortgage company, then as an account representative for a national automobile lender, all very relevant experience in the area of home loans, foreclosures, auto loans and repossessions.
Michael then attended Mississippi College School of Law from 1987-1990 from which he graduated "with distinction." While in law school Michael also served as a staff member on the Mississippi College Review. Law Review membership is reserved for the best and brightest based upon academic performance and legal writing skills. After spending a couple of years with a corporate law firm focusing only on representing large businesses, Mr. Pond decided that this was not for him. In 1992 he founded Pond Law Firm and began representing individuals and families before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. Since then, Michael has successfully represented literally thousands of individuals and families, assisting them with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases. We encourage you to compare Michael's credentials to any of the lawyers practicing consumer bankruptcy law in the Jackson area.

CAUTION: Numerous Jackson-area consumer bankruptcy lawyers will quote you a fee for Chapter 7 bankruptcy without ever having met you and without knowing anything at all about your income, assets or personal situation. A red flag should go up immediately. That lawyer already knows what he or she is going to do for you…regardless of what you need. It is absolutely impossible for a lawyer to determine what's in your best interest without knowing all the facts. You may benefit from Chapter 7. On the other hand, Chapter 13 may work better in your particular situation. You need to know all your options. You need to know how Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 apply to your particular circumstances, not how these laws work in general.
