About Us

Helping Kootenai County with dedication and integrity.

Kootenai Bankruptcy aims to provide the area’s finest bankruptcy and tax-relief services. Above all, we exist with a singular focus: helping Kootenai County’s citizens get a fresh start. With the talented bankruptcy specialist Chris Williams and skilled paralegal Andrea Streeter, we stand ready to serve the wider Coeur d’Alene community.

We handle a variety of issues related to tax relief, debt negotiation, and bankruptcy filings. If a garnishment is eating away at your income, let us try to reduce or eliminate it. Similarly, if creditors are calling about your debts, let us help to negotiate a fair repayment plan. Frequently, if the IRS or the State of Idaho is pushing about back taxes, we can help to reach an accommodation. Finally, if you need to file a bankruptcy, let us guide you through the entire process.

Bankruptcy is never easy, but you don’t have to go it alone. We will explain your options, negotiate with your creditors, and ensure your rights are protected. It is important to us that you receive the treatment you deserve. Don’t call a national bankruptcy center and settle for talking to a salesperson. Get your advice in person from someone who can help you: your very own, local attorney. Contact us today for a free consultation with Chris. We’ll do our best to answer all your questions and put your mind at ease.
