Committed to protecting consumer rights.

In my thirty five years as an Iowa lawyer, I’ve represented consumers, family farmers and small businesses in bankruptcy, defended against debt collection and helped consumers assert their rights. We can help you too.

We advocate for the consumer.

While many of our clients need to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy to get debt relief or to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy to stop a foreclosure or cure a mortgage default, not all of them do.

Some clients instead need help suing debt collectors or creditors who violate fair debt collection laws, fair credit reporting laws or a bankruptcy discharge. Some need help defending against debt collection from a debt buyer who can’t prove it owns a debt or is suing beyond the statute of limitations. Other clients need help defending against a National Collegiate Student Loan Trust (NCSLT) trying to collect private student loans. Some clients need to bring a consumer fraud lawsuit. And some clients need help with tax debt.

Life has thrown you some curve balls. Don’t wait, take action now.

Two things are important to remember. First, most of us have too much debt not because of something we did wrong but because of all the curve balls we’re thrown in life.

Family illness, divorce, loss of employment or a cut in wages aren’t things we ask for. But we can take action to get debt relief. And that’s the second thing to remember – don’t wait too long.

Many people wait to call me until after a judgment has been entered so their wages or bank accounts are being garnished. Or they wait until a sheriff’s sale has been scheduled in a foreclosure.

Or they wait until their retirement accounts have been depleted, jeopardizing their future and that of their children.

Some wait until they’ve spent thousands of dollars on scam debt settlement programs. Don’t wait. Start dealing with the problems now by contacting us about your debt or consumer rights issue.

Nancy L. Thompson Law Office, P.C. is located in the historic Saddlery Building on Court Avenue in downtown Des Moines. Garage and meter parking are available. We’re also accessible via the downtown Des Moines skywalk.

Client Testimonials

“Thank you Nancy for everything! As I sat there this morning witnessing other cases, it was clear to me that other attorneys did not have their clients nearly as prepared or educated on the process. There were/are things we missed or overlooked, but at no fault of yours. Thank you for not letting us present our stammering selves to the trustee.” –  Amy, Client
“I can’t sufficiently express my gratitude for the patience your email conveys must be standard business there at Nancy’s law firm. Yes, it is difficult, but far less so when there are professionals like you that bring your hearts to work and even as busy as you must be, offer compassion and patience so freely to clients.” –  Stan, Client
