    It is easy in this day and age to let debts get out of control and for consumer to feel overwhelmed.  As the economy of Southwest Virginia has suffered and job layoffs increased, many good people have chosen to use the bankruptcy laws to relieve themselves of overwhelming debts. Debts that most of the time they would like to pay -- but simply cannot. These economic factors, combined with the higher credit card payment minimums and higher mortgage payments have put many good folks in a tough financial predicament.  Malissa Giles and the attorneys and staff at Giles & Lambert, P.C. offer the kind of personalized legal service that consumers and small businesses need from their offices in Roanoke, Blacksburg and Martinsville, Virginia.  Malissa and her  husband and law partner Tracy Giles provide professional, thorough, personalized, and detail-oriented legal representation throughout the Western District and Southwest Virginia.  Malissa and the firm of Giles and Lambert, P.C. have helped thousands of clients out of financial trouble using a variety of solutions that include credit counseling and bankruptcy workouts.
