CMC Law is a comprehensive Atlanta bankruptcy law firm founded in 2012. We specialize in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy for consumers and small businesses. Our practice is devoted to helping individuals and families navigate the confusing territory of bankruptcy, foreclosure, creditor harassment, repossession, and asset protection. We make every effort to help our clients understand the law that applies to their particular situation and what alternatives are available. Our objective is to help our clients make informed decisions about their options, and then enforce those decisions with smart, aggressive legal representation, with the ultimate goal of becoming debt-free, followed by maintaining a debt-free lifestyle.

CMC Law aims to provide best-in-class customer service through direct attorney contact. At the same time, CMC Law is committed to aggressively protect and enforce the rights and interests of our clients, both through bankruptcy and litigation, when necessary.

Living with debt, especially when you lack the apparently ability to repay it, can mean living under a black cloud. Even during the happiest moments in life, lingering in your subconscious is the reality of unpaid debt. It's a type of lingering worry that never quite leaves your mind. Our mission is to help get rid of that debt so you can live your life with financial peace of mind. We also counsel clients after bankruptcy is over on how to stay debt free and give advice on wealth-building. Financial freedom is not an abstract concept. It is an achievable reality.

Charles Clapp, founder of CMC Law, graduated from University of Missouri in 2002. He received a Governor's Scholarship at Florida Coastal School of Law and obtained his law degree in 2005. Mr. Clapp's career began as an trial lawyer, protecting the rights of indigent clients. In 2008, he concentrated his practice on consumer bankruptcy, where he worked as lead attorney for one of Atlanta's largest consumer bankruptcy firms. Over his career, Mr. Clapp has guided thousands through the stress of debt to a financial fresh start. He has helped people and families attain financial peace of mind not just through bankruptcy, but also through a successful trial practice, suing hundreds of creditors and banks.

Mr. Clapp is a frequent lecturer on the bankruptcy law circuit, actively attends bankruptcy seminars, and has trained many lawyers in consumer bankruptcy. He is also an experienced civil litigator who had been lead counsel in hundreds of lawsuits in Georgia state and federal courts, representing both plaintiffs and defendants.

I was very satisfied with Mr. Clapp services. He is a man of his word and did everything he told me he would. I would highly recommend him. Shernita
★★★★★
I came to Mr. Clapp by referral with a complicated case involving both personal and business debts that were out of control. Mr. Clapp evaluated the situation and gave me options that I was not even aware of. He knows his stuff, executed flawlessly, and I have been able to start over. I highly recommend Charles Clapp if you have debt or bankruptcy issues. Listen to his advice, he knows his stuff. I consulted with several other bankruptcy attorneys prior to retaining Mr. Clapp, and they did not have the same breadth of knowledge that Mr. Clapp brought to my case. Scott
★★★★★
I selected Charles Clapp to handle my bankruptcy based on his already positive reviews and I am glad that I did! He was very accommodating to my schedule and made my negative life experience positive. I was actually very surprised how easy he made the process. Life happens and it's great to be represented by someone that understand that!!! Stop your attorney search with Charles Clapp!!! Heather
