Experience matters in all aspects of life, and that certainly holds true when you need help resolving unmanageable debt problems and resetting your financial life. Attorney Michael G. Pond has been helping residents of Jackson, Mississippi, and surrounding communities regain their financial health since 1992.
Michael is uniquely qualified to assist individuals who are struggling financially and considering filing bankruptcy. You can learn more about his work experience and education by clicking on the link below.
Michael’s educational, personal and professional experiences set him apart from other Jackson-area consumer bankruptcy lawyers. Before he attended law school, he obtained a degree from the University of Texas at Tyler, majoring in economics and finance. That coursework is relevant and beneficial to his consumer bankruptcy clients.
Michael 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. This experience in the areas of home loans, foreclosures, auto loans and repossessions also is useful as he helps his clients.
Michael attended Mississippi College School of Law from 1987 to 1990 and graduated “with distinction.” While in law school, he 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, Michael decided this type of work 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 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 deserve to know all of your options. You deserve to know how Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 apply to your particular circumstances, not how these laws work in general.
