A Message From Dale

The TrustDALE Certification process requires that a business must first pass my stringent 7-Point Investigative Review of reputation, price, quality, and customer service. That process is completed through detailed research and a personal company interview. I've given this business my highest recommendation. I believe that you, too, can feel confident placing your trust in their services.

About Clark & Washington LLC - Tennessee,

If your financial circumstances are making you consider bankruptcy, you need an attorney group who specializes in this area of the law.  Clark & Washington is one of the Southeast’s largest groups with bankruptcy attorneys in multiple offices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee. They can assist you when debt has become overwhelming and create a path for financial freedom.



How Much Will it Cost to Start Chapter 13 or Chapter 7?

At Clark & Washington, our philosophy has always been that the issue of attorney's fees should never stand between you and the bankruptcy relief you need.

While the majority of bankruptcy attorneys require ALL of their attorney's fees to be paid in full before the case is filed, we have found that a lot of our clients cannot afford to pay all of the fees upfront. We realize that our clients are in difficult financial situations and installment payments are helpful to them.

Chapter 7 Costs:
Filing Costs: For a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, the federal filing fee is $306.00. A credit counseling certificate is required to file, $45.00 (this fee includes both the pre-filing and the pre-discharge counseling). This counseling may be done at our office while we are opening the file.

We can also obtain your credit report for $15.00 for a single report, $30.00 for a joint report. This is not mandatory but we find it to be very helpful if you don't have a complete and accurate list of creditors.

Attorney's fees: - Clark & Washington charges a total of $1,250.00 for a routine case. Terms are available. Upon payment of the filing fee, $306.00, plus the counseling fee, $45.00 for a total of $351.00, we can file your case and the attorney will work with your specific situation in regards to a payment plan.

Of course you may also pay attorney's fees in full by cash, personal check, debit card, money order or checks from a third-party.

Although our standard fee of $1,250.00 applies in 90% of our cases, this fee can vary (both up and down) depending on a number of factors such as:

  • the total amount of debt
  • the type of debt ( secured debt, judgments, credit cards, taxes, student loans etc...)
  • the amount and type of assets
  • whether you owe either priority or stale taxes
  • the number of pieces of real estate owned

Clark & Washington makes every effort to minimize the costs to begin your case. In most cases, we can file your petition for the filing fee only.

Chapter 13 Costs:
Filing Costs: The cost to file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy will be the Federal Court filing fee of $281.00 plus the credit counseling fee of $45.00 (this includes both the pre-petition and pre-discharge counseling) for a total of $326.00.

Attorney's Fees All attorneys' fees for a Chapter 13 are routinely put into the repayment plan. The Chapter 13 Trustee will pay the attorney's fees on a monthly basis along with the other creditors.


Our investigation has found that with Clark & Washington, practice indeed makes perfect. As Georgia's largest bankruptcy filer, this firm and its multiple North Georgia locations have created a work flow that is personal, friendly and incredibly efficient. It is hard to say how long this entire process can take, but we at TrustDale are confident you won't find a better partner to shepherd you through the process.

Customer Service

Clark and Washington was founded in 1983 with a simple but revolutionary idea. Bankruptcy should provide relief, not regret. Co-founder Emory Clark personally assures me that he and his staff will do their best to make your experience efficient, pleasant, and effective. This is why Clark & Washington is far and away one of the best bankuptcy firms in the Southeast.

What is the TrustDALE Investigative Process & the Make it Right Guarantee?

7-Point Investigative Review

The TrustDale Investigative Process is completed through a personal interview with the business owner or representative, a completed application, public records search, and secret shopping. TrustDale disclaims any liability for any and all inadvertent inaccuracies.
  1. Price: The Company must price its main product or products competitively (unless there is a significant difference in the quality of the product). The Company must honor the price it advertises, and not use unavailable products to lure and trap customers into more expensive products.
  2. Verified Reputation & Customer Service: The performance of each company is continually and systematically reviewed for delivery of excellent customer service. This is achieved by conducting follow up surveys of customers who have contacted recommended service providers.
  3. What Would Cardwell Do: Dale Cardwell developed a proven standard of consumer fairness through thousands of real-world problem-solving experiences. This created the basis for “What Would Cardwell Do?” in regard to whether Dale would choose to personally do business with this Company.
  4. Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs, Consumer Publications, FTC: Each Company is reviewed through the pertinent agencies and publications.
  5. Licensing, Professional Certification, Insurance and Bonding: Each Company is reviewed for proper professional credentialing.
  6. Lawsuit Search and Review: A review of the Company’s litigation history is completed to assure no history of unprofessional or illegal business practices.
  7. “Make it Right Guarantee”: The Company agrees to accept and abide by TrustDale’s Make it Right Guarantee.

Make it Right Guarantee

Certified businesses must agree in writing to accept and abide by the following:
  1. Customers have a right to extraordinary customer service.
  2. My current warranty and customer service are among the best available in the field.
  3. I ensure complete customer satisfaction, by offering the TrustDale Make It Right guarantee.
  4. The TrustDale Guarantee becomes valid when a customer contacts the vendor through TrustDale, or confirms his purchase on TrustDale.com within 24 hours of the transaction.
  5. The TrustDale Guarantee states that if the customer is dissatisfied with a product, repair or customer service, the customer will first employ the avenues of redress made available by the business’ customer service agreement. In the event that at the conclusion of the process the customer remains dissatisfied, he/she will have the right to take the grievance to TrustDale.
  6. I will allow TrustDale and an independent expert in the field to review the customer’s complaint. If upon conclusion of review, the independent expert and Dale agree that the customer’s position is justified, I agree to abide by the recommendation of TrustDale to Make It Right.
  7. Make It Right means the vendor will repair/replace the product as recommended by TrustDale, or will pay for the product to be repaired or replaced, or will reimburse the customer for the cost of the repair/product at a price up to, but not to exceed, the original price paid by the customer.
