Trying to Reach Giles & Lambert?

We have had some glitchy issues with our phones over the past two weeks, where some folks calling get disconnected after it rings once or the line rings and rings and no one picks up. We assure you we are here and have folks ready to answer!

We are working with Verizon and our phone provider to solve the issue, but of course each company says the problem must be the fault of the other! (I am sure ya’ll know how that is!) If you try to reach us and cannot get an answer via the phone, please shoot us an email using the firm website contact link or simply send to (Beth Brubaker, office manager) or to (attorney Malissa Giles) and let us know you have not been able to get through on the phone. We will be glad to call you back and help!

Malissa Giles – Super Lawyer yet again!

Congratulations are in order for Giles & Lambert, P.C. attorney and managing partner, Malissa Giles! Ms. Giles has been named a 2019 Virginia Super Lawyer in the area of consumer bankruptcy for the thirteenth year in a row from 2007 to 2019. What is a Super Lawyer, you may ask?

This selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.” (

Congratulations, Malissa!

Owe Federal Taxes?

The article below gives you some ideas of ways to pay. If you’re struggling with tax or other debt and don’t see a way out, contact us at Giles & Lambert to see if bankruptcy could help. Note that tax debt is often (but not always!) non-dischargeable, but bankruptcy still may give you the option to restructure the payment of the tax debt or get rid of other debt to give you the breathing room to pay your taxes. If you are struggling to pay and want to learn whether bankruptcy can help you, give us a call!
