Comprehensive Legal Services

Our highly-seasoned legal professionals are experienced in three areas of law to serve your needs better. If you’ve been searching for a “bankruptcy attorney near me,” you’ve found a highly rated bankruptcy lawyer in Belleville, IL area with The Dixon & Johnston Law Office. By narrowing our focus to these three areas, we can better serve you on all of them. Learn more about our legal services and contact us if you have any questions about them:

  • Bankruptcy – Do you feel like you’re drowning in debt and don’t know what to do? Bankruptcy could be the answer and give you a fresh financial start. Our experienced attorneys can help you decide whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is best for you. Bankruptcy could help if you’ve been facing foreclosure, repossession, wage garnishments, payday lenders, or are simply unable to pay your bills. If you’ve lost your job from COVID-19, have recently been divorced, or suffered the loss of a spouse, bankruptcy may be your best option. Good people can get into debt trouble, but we’re here to help.
  • Social Security Disability – Becoming disabled and no longer able to work can certainly put you in a financial bind. If that has happened to you, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The application process for these benefits is very detailed and time-consuming, but we have it down to a science. Whether you’ve already applied and were denied or have not started yet, we can help with your application or appeal. The odds of being approved for disability on your own without appealing are very low. We can help speed up the process and get you the benefits you rightfully deserve.
  • Family Law – Family matters can be complicated and emotional. With so many marriages ending in divorce, you need an attorney on your side who can fight for your rights. This difficult life event can become even more complicated when children are involved. Our experienced law firm concentrates in all areas of family law, including divorce, child support, child custody and visitation, modifications, and more. We can help you move forward with the next chapter of your life from a legal perspective. We’re also adept when it comes to property division, adoption, alimony, paternity, and many other areas.
