You know that you made it to Clanton when you reach the giant peach water tower along Interstate 65! The peach water tower is a landmark along the interstate. Clanton is a beautiful Southern town with all the charm and grace that one expects to see in a movie. Clanton is the county seat of Chilton County, and is the geographical center of the State of Alabama. It was founded in 1868, and is nearby Lay Lake Dam and Mitchell Dam which became Alabama Power’s first two dams in the state. It is also home to Alabama’s peach industry which has brought national fame to the area. Like a few other Alabama cities and towns, it was home to a small German POW camp during World War II.
If you have never visited the Clanton area, we suggest that you do. It’s worth the trip to see the lakes and countryside of this picturesque area. Like many beautiful areas in Alabama, Clanton has hard working people who enjoy life away from being either in Birmingham or Montgomery. With this life, there is some poverty among the residents. Almost 20% of the population lives in poverty and about 28% of those are children according to the 2010 census. Industries and jobs vary in the Clanton area, and our lawyers have noticed that due to changing economics in the area that many Clanton residents can be financially hit hard due to many factors beyond their control. Our Clanton Bankruptcy lawyers have seen the industries in the area come and leave over the past two decades. We have noticed that people have suffered loss of jobs, had their hours cut at work, have had unexpected medical bills, or have gone through divorces which have a heavy impact on their ability to pay their creditors. These things are beyond the control of our clients. Things just happen. When it does, we have used the tools provided in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and a Chapter 13 debt consolidation to help honest folks get back on their feet again. We have represented thousands of people, and have stopped creditors from repossessing cars, foreclosing on homes, and even garnishing wages. Our Clanton Bankruptcy lawyers know that when hardworking, honest people fall on hard times that someone must step up to help, and that’s what we do at The Sellers Law Firm! If you have having financial problems, call us and remember that all consultations are always free!
As with many small Alabama towns, when the main industries involve medium or heavy lifting, there tend to be many people on Social Security disability because they were injured at work. Our Clanton Social Security attorneys have represented thousands of people in Social Security/SSI disability cases. To be approved for disability, we must first prove that a person is disabled due to a mental or physical impairment which prevents that person from working for at least 12 months. This is just the medical requirement, but it is the first hurdle and the main hurdle to overcome. We know that Social Security rules and regulations are confusing to most people, but our experienced Clanton Social Security lawyers know how to navigate the waters and win cases! We have represented thousands of clients and collected millions of dollars in back Social Security benefits. We never charge an upfront fee to represent someone in a Social Security case, and we don’t get paid unless we win! Also, all consultations are always free at The Sellers Law Firm!
