Bankruptcy & Debt Collections Attorney Serving Columbia, Missouri

Mitchell J. Moore

Attorney at law

A life-long resident of Columbia, Missouri, I pursued a legal degree at the University of Missouri School of Law. I offer my community the advantage of hiring local counsel who can relate to their specific needs, and when they meet with me, I want to hear their story so I can get to know them and how I can use my skills to help. Regardless of the situation, you shouldn't have to deal with your legal matters alone. You need a dedicated attorney on your side from the very beginning, and I'm prepared to provide you with quality service and representation you can rely on.


"If I can help relieve your stress — whether you're facing a criminal charge or financial distress — then I feel like I've done my job."

Helping you Find financial relief

Oftentimes when people hear the word "bankruptcy," they associate it with negativity and shame. But bankruptcy could potentially be the best option for getting out of debt — debt that you would be stuck in longer than it would take for your credit score to rise back up after filing for it.

You'll have different options and choices to make once you decide that bankruptcy is the right solution for you. For individual debt relief, you can either file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. An experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you fully understand which one is right for you and determine your best course of action.

Chapter 7, also referred to as "Liquidation Bankruptcy," uses your assets to repay your debts. This option is usually for debtors who don't have the means to pay back all, or some, of their debts. Chapter 13, on the other hand, is known as a reorganization of your debts that establishes a payback plan that you can reasonably manage.

Whatever your situation may be, I can help you understand your options and the possible outcomes of each decision you will have to make during the bankruptcy process. Contact my Columbia-based law firm today for a free consultation and put my experience to work for you.

Helping you through the bankruptcy process with compassion

When you're consumed by debt, everything in life becomes centered around it. Maybe you can't focus at work because you are sick with financial worry, or maybe you aren't able to enjoy your child's first day of school because you're unsure of how you'll pay for everything they need.

You shouldn't spend your life worrying. With the help of an experienced, compassionate bankruptcy attorney you can find the right debt relief solution for you and begin to take the first steps toward financial recovery.

Proudly serving Columbia, MO, and all of Boone County — the community that raised me — I can relate to my clients to better serve their needs. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, I'll help you decide which chapter to file and use my knowledge to confidently guide you through the process.

In addition to offering my assistance with bankruptcy, I can also help you through other legal troubles you may be facing. If you're dealing with harassing debt creditors, I'll provide you with a strong collection defense. No one deserves to be badgered for their debts.

That can make the stress you're feeling even more overwhelming, which helps no one get closer to resolving their issues. With experience as a criminal defense attorney, my representation can make a difference.

No matter your situation, I want to help you through it. I've been practicing law for a long time and keep coming back every day for the same reason: I love helping my clients achieve their goals and move forward in their lives. Let me use my knowledge and expertise to help you.
