We Are Not a Bankruptcy Factory

We are not one of the largest bankruptcy firms in the state of Washington. We are not one of those firms were you are just another file put through a bankruptcy factory. We have offered our clients personal attention for over 35 year. Years of bankruptcy experience matter and Donald Tesch has been a bankruptcy lawyer since 1979, representing consumers and small businesses. We can help you painlessly get through the bankruptcy process.

Traditional Law Firm

We are a traditional law firm and able to give you and your financial problems individual attentions. At our law firm my staff and I know you, you are not just one of thousands of cases with rules to call only between certain hours. You will be presented by Donald Tesch, an attorney with over 35 years of experience, handling every type of bankruptcy case and bankruptcy law you can imagine. You will not be handed off to an associate attorney just barely out of law school. Experience matters!

We Are Not a National law Firm

Our emphasis is on service not quantity. You can talk to Donald Tesch himself any day you choose. Take advantage of his experience when your financial future is at stake. Choosing a lawyer is not about choosing a law firm with the most offices, the most attorneys, the most clients or expensive television advertising. At least it shouldn't be. Choosing a lawyer should be about experience, accessibility and commitment to quality legal services at reasonable fees.


Donald Tesch has been practicing bankruptcy law in the State of Washington and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington since 1979. When you meet him you will see his experience. He does not have to add up all of the years of experience of all of the attorneys in a big law firm to come up with a large number to prove he is experienced. He has done it all and seen it all. No one wants to file bankruptcy, whether a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, but if you have run out of time or options, bankruptcy can be the first step to a fresh start, a new life unburdened by the problems of the past.


We understand that it often takes months to make the decision to contact a bankruptcy attorney to determine if bankruptcy is the right solution for your financial problems. We understand how it feels to come to terms with the decision to file a bankruptcy. We understand that you might be feeling bad and that you don't need any attorney to be unsympathetic or callous of indifferent to your financial situation and your decision to file bankruptcy whether a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.

Reasonable Fees and Payment Plans

If you are just price shopping, we are not the right law firm for you. We provide quality legal services, by a very experienced attorney at a very competitive price. Many of our Chapter 7 clients pay for their services over a period of time. Under our Chapter 13 cases we usually put our fees on the courts repayment plan with no attorney fee payment up front required. We understand that you are having financial troubles and that you may not have extra money to pay a bankruptcy lawyer at our first meeting.
