Chris Oswalt’s bio

I am a firm believer that family is the link that holds our society together, and that each person has a fundamental right to maintain and grow their familiar relationships.  At Robertson Law Firm, I help guide people through the intricate and unpredictable nature of the modern day family, and I devote my time to ensuring the legal system hears and understands the often unfair and unfortunate dilemmas people face in this ever-changing society. 

Further, as the fundamental right to maintain and grow family relationships does not end at death, I believe it is imperative to establish a proper plan for the distribution of one’s assets after their passing to provide protection, assurance, and comfort to loved ones left behind.  Whether by a simple will or more complex estate planning, I assist my clients in making sure their assets are distributed by the method they desire and to the people they wish to protect.

In addition to assisting clients in the planning of their estate and the protection of their family relationships, I also represent clients whose financial struggles leave them with no other option than bankruptcy.   Being a victim of identity theft while in college, I have first-hand knowledge of how worrisome and stressful harassing calls from creditors may be.  Unfortunately, the recent and ongoing financial crisis has left many people in a similar financial situation, with many facing garnishments, repossessions, and foreclosures.    At Robertson Law Firm, I use my knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code to help give people facing garnishments, repossessions, foreclosures, and rising credit card debt a fresh start.
