About Us

Jump to: Lee O’Steen Staff

Attorney Lee O’Steen is ready to assist you in taking control of your financial situation. As an attorney who is also a certified public accountant (CPA), Lee has the experience in taxes, accounting, and law that is needed to guide you through the complexities of bankruptcy to get you a fresh start.

Lee is an active member of the South Carolina Bankruptcy Law Association and has participated in several capacities on the board as well as the annual conferences. Lee currently serves as past president of the South Carolina Bankruptcy Law Association and speaks at conferences as needed.

Lee has decided that O’Steen Law Firm will represent only debtors. The current attitude and aggressiveness of debt collectors makes life extremely difficult for individuals who are unable to stay current on their debts. His goal is to provide a way out of debt for deserving debtors.

Lee provides a free consultation which takes only 30 minutes. He will discuss your current financial situation and explain in simple terms the workings of Chapters 7 and 13 bankruptcies. Lee will answer questions you may have about bankruptcy, the collection process, foreclosure, wage garnishments, and debtor’s rights. He will determine if bankruptcy is an option for someone in your financial situation and discuss solutions that may be available to you in your circumstances. If bankruptcy is not an option, he will explain what other alternatives may be available.

Lee tries to take the difficulty out of dealing with debt. The office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the week, and after hour appointments are available as needed.
