Marlatt Law Office


Columbus Bankruptcy, Family Law, & OMVI/DUI Lawyer Solving Your Financial Problems and Helping You Get Your Life Back on Course No one expects to be hit with more debt than they can handle, but it happens. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people encounter unforeseen circumstances — long-term unemployment, for example, or a serious injury or divorce — that cause them to fall behind on bills they had every intention of paying. I am J. Scott Marlatt, a Central Ohio Attorney. At Marlatt Law Office, I help clients in the Columbus area file bankruptcy and also offer counseling and representation in other debt relief efforts. Bankruptcy laws exist to protect you and help you get back on solid financial ground. These laws are complicated, however, and require the attention of a lawyer who works on bankruptcy cases regularly. Bankruptcy is a solution, not something to be embarrassed about. Many people postpone consulting with a lawyer to determine whether filing for bankruptcy is the right step because they are embarrassed about the situation they are in. I intend to help you resolve the problem, not make judgments on how you got there. Don’t wait any longer. Call 614-523-3576 or e-mail me to schedule a free initial consultation Westerville Debt Relief Lawyer At Marlatt Law Office, I focus on individual bankruptcy cases. Every person’s situation is unique. I don’t automatically recommend bankruptcy proceedings. I assess each case individually and counsel each client on a number of topics, including: •Determining whether filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is appropriate •Eliminating credit card debt or medical bills •Stopping foreclosure or setting up a loan modification •Keeping your vehicle or stopping other repossessions In addition to dealing with Debt Relief issues, I also represent clients in these areas of law: •OVI/DUI – If you’ve been arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or driving under the influence, you’ll likely appear in Mayor’s Court. It’s smart to have legal representation, especially if this is a second or third offense. •Family law – I represent individuals in divorce, dissolution of a marriage, child custody or child support matters, or when modification of a previous agreement is necessary. •Juvenile law – I also represent individuals in all non-delinquency matters handled in Juvenile courts, such as: abuse/neglect/dependency cases, child support, visitation, and custody. I’ve been serving Central Ohio for over 10 years.
