Helping You Navigate A Trying Time

Lindsay D. Steele is the founder and owner of the Steele Law Firm and past President of the Bankruptcy Law Section of the Tarrant County Bar Association. Ms. Steele’s practice is focused primarily on consumer bankruptcy law, though she has also represented numerous clients in probate and guardianship cases. Prior to founding the Steele Law Firm, Ms. Steele was an associate at two prominent consumer bankruptcy firms in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, where she gained substantial experience representing debtors in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies.

Perhaps the aspect of Ms. Steele’s practice that distinguishes her most from many other consumer bankruptcy attorneys is that she takes care to limit the number of clients she represents at a given time. Representing a small client base allows Ms. Steele to devote a substantial amount of time and energy to each case, thereby ensuring that each client’s unique financial situation receives the attention it deserves.

Ms. Steele earned her J.D. from the Texas Wesleyan School of Law and her B.A. from Texas Tech University. Like all Texas Tech alumni, she is an avid fan of Red Raider football. She enjoys spending time with her husband – also an attorney - and with her German Shepherd, Lexie.

Explore your bankruptcy options and ork through your financial troubles with assistance from a knowledgeable and experienced bankruptcy lawyer.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be able to set up a repayment plan to pay down your debts, rather than having some of your assets liquidated. 

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be able to put an end to foreclosure proceedings, stop harassment from creditors and get back on your feet financially. 

Working With the IRS

Working With the IRS

Some tax debt may not be discharged in bankruptcy proceedings, others can be wiped away as part of a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help.

Credit Card Debt

Credit Card Debt

 As an experienced bankruptcy attorney, I have seen the havoc that credit card debt can cause — and the debt relief that can come from filing for bankruptcy.

Medical Debt

Medical Debt

Filing for bankruptcy as a result of medical debts can stop creditors from contacting you and hounding you into making payments. It also gives you some peace of mind that your situation is going to be resolved.



If you know you're going to lose your house in foreclosure, there may be some benefit if you file for bankruptcy before your house is foreclosed. Learn more about your options and how we can help.

Wage Garnishment

Wage Garnishment

For a court to order your wages to be garnished, it is likely that your debt is substantial. When your wages are being garnished, you have to make a decision about what action you will take. We can help.
