It’s that time of the year again when the airwaves are humming with offers of lump sum payments on structured settlements, pennies-on-the-dollar tax payments, debt consolidation and instant cash for car titles. No credit check! Get cash with an easy payday loan.
Not to be outdone, credit card companies are mailing out millions of “checks” with an invitation to “Enjoy ways to save this summer.” The interest rate is lower than usual for a few months – that’s the ‘savings.’ But it’s really a cash advance and the interest soon skyrockets to somewhere north of 22.9%.
For people facing overwhelming debt, any of these offers may seem like a way out. As our Boleman Law attorneys and professionals well know, nothing could be further from the truth.
At this time of the year we help hundreds of people who have made the difficult decision to get a fresh financial start through legal solutions including bankruptcy.
The first step is to make an appointment to meet with one of our 16 skilled, experienced attorneys to discuss financial options. The consultation is free. We don’t judge and we always treat everyone with respect.
Boleman Law is the bankruptcy specialist, the largest consumer bankruptcy law firm in Virginia. Since 1991 we’ve helped more than 106,000 people regain their financial health.
If you know someone who needs a fresh financial start this summer, please suggest that they call us immediately.

Russell “Rusty” Boleman III, Chairman of Boleman Law Firm, P.C. and his wife, Gayle have enjoyed almost fifty years of marriage and working together. Their early days were spent in Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin and finally Texas, where Rusty worked as a technical recruiter in the oil industry. Then, suddenly, the American oil industry collapsed with low oil prices. Rusty and Gayle, along with thousands of American oil workers, experienced loss of jobs and income.
As Boleman Law clients know all too well, during a financial crisis, bad things can happen to anyone. The poor treatment Rusty and Gayle received as they sought solutions to financial problems led them to believe that there was a need for a change in bankruptcy law practice. At age 40, those experiences led Rusty to law school in Richmond -much later in life than most of his law school colleagues. He worked all through law school with Gayle at his side. After graduation, they founded Boleman Law Firm in 1991 with the goal of treating everyone who came to them seeking help with respect and dignity, while providing excellence in customer service and legal advice.
Rusty’s strong commitment to legal knowledge, ethics and community service has made him one of Virginia’s leading lawyers, Rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell and a Virginia Lawyers Weekly 2017 Virginia Leader in the Law. Almost 30 years later, the firm that bears his name has helped almost 110,000 Virginians regain their financial health. The 13 lawyers and 30 staff members carry on the traditions of excellence and compassion as they provide assistance to over 10,000 folks each year.
Rusty and Gayle are proud parents of one daughter and grandparents of two grandchildren. They and their two cats are now enjoying semi-retirement and spending time with their family. But, no matter where they are, they are never far from their other family, the lawyers and staff who strive every day to make Boleman Law Firm a safe and happy place for both clients and employees.
