Selma, Alabama is the county seat of Dallas County, and is located on the banks of the historic Alabama River. Selma was first settled by the French in 1732, and they recorded the site as Ecor Beinville. Later it was Called Moore’s Bluff, and in 1820, it was incorporated as Selma. Selma is a city rich in history from its armament manufacturing and the Battle of Selma involving General Nathan Bedford Forrest during the Civil War to the Selma Voting Rights Movement, the Selma to Montgomery Marches and the determined civil rights work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Many books have been written on Selma’s role in southern history for the past 200 years!
While Selma is rich in history and has some of the most beautiful churches in Alabama, it is also one of the poorest cities in Alabama. Almost 27% of all families living in Selma, and almost 42% of children, live below the poverty level per the 2010 census. It is in these areas that The Sellers Law Firm has found the greatest needs for our services, and we are always willing to help the people of this great town and county. There is little doubt that is easy for hard working people to fall on hard times in Selma. Through our years of practice in Selma, we have seen good people struggle even when the national news reports that the U.S. economy is strong. Being strong across the country doesn’t always mean strong in the Selma area. Because of this, we have seen employers come and go in the Selma community. When this happens, people generally find themselves out of work and struggling to make ends meet. Also, occasionally people suffer catastrophic financial events which create enormous debts. This can be caused by divorce, death of a family member, loss of income of a spouse, or a medical emergency in which insurance, or the lack thereof, simply isn’t enough to cover the massive medical bills.
When these events occur, our Selma bankruptcy attorneys are willing to step up to the plate, and help families save their homes, cars, and wages. We have seen firsthand how debt can cause people to lose sleep at night; worry excessively about keeping a roof over their children’s heads; or simply not enjoy life and families. Our goal is to help people regain their financial stability through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 debt consolidation. Both of these can be useful tools to putting a strong financial footing back under a family. Sometimes a bankruptcy or debt consolidation isn’t the right choice, and when that’s the case, we help our clients explore other options. Our Selma bankruptcy attorneys take pride in representing the people of this area because some of our attorneys and staff were born and raised in Dallas County! We know that your case is the most important case that we will handle!
Because of the economic dynamics of Selma, we have found that many people in the Dallas County area apply for Social Security disability or SSI, but give up pursuing the case if Social Security denies the application. If you can’t work due to a mental or physical impairment, then you may qualify for Social Security disability or SSI benefits. Our Selma Social Security attorneys find this to be tragic when people apply for benefits and give up, or they don’t even apply at all, because so many of the cases are winnable with good, solid legal help! We know that dealing with Social Security can be a frustrating process! This is why you need an experienced Selma Social Security attorney who is willing to listen and help. If you can’t work, you shouldn’t deal with the stress of trying to prepare your own case. We will gather medical, physical therapy and any other records that are needed to win your case. Let your first call be to The Sellers Law Firm, and remember, we never charge an upfront fee and we only get paid if you do!
