About Us

Tracy and Malissa Giles

We started this firm in 1993 when we saw a need in Roanoke and the surrounding areas for a firm that focused only on debt relief.

Since that we  have expanded and now have offices in Martinsville and Blacksburg.

We have lived here in Roanoke City for 20 years.  We’ve seen the area grow and change, and are raising our family here.  As the parents of three elementary and middle-school aged children, one dog, one cat and two guinea pigs, we understand the financial pressures of raising a family and a small zoo.

Tracy is originally from Danville and Malissa from Hazlehurst, Mississippi.  (And yes, we met while in law school and I eventually moved here to marry him!)  We maintain connections with Danville and Southside Virginia from Tracy’s relatives and from frequent court appearances there.   Malissa’s parents moved to Botetourt County about 10 years ago and are a great help with the kids.  She has a sister who works for Virginia Tech and enjoys seeing her when working out the Blacksburg office.

Tracy is an avid hunter, enjoying being outdoors as much as possible and taking his kids with him to teach them about the natural beauty of Virginia.  Virginia and the area around us have many great activities for families on a budget, and we are always looking to share those with our clients.  From biking the Greenway to sliding down natural water slides at Roaring Run, we look for fun, inexpensive activities for our family that we can share with our clients.

We strive for an office where clients feel comfortable and welcome.  No babysitter – that’s fine.  Kids can watch TV in the lobby or sit in with us.

We also focus on hiring staff that understands the problems our clients face and that can empathize with those problems.  And, above all we take the time to train our staff extensively about bankruptcy, debt resolutions and dealing with your creditors.

In addition to serving our clients, we also believe in giving back to their local community .   We have both been and are extraordinarily active in local, state and national legal organizations and with local community organizations, from their kids schools to local non-profits.

We are one of you and are here to help you.
