About Us

Ted Tinsman, Bankruptcy AttorneyWhen you call my office for a free no-obligation consultation, you will be visiting with an attorney, not a paralegal. I have filed thousands of bankruptcy cases for people and small businesses under Chapters 7, 11, and 13 of the bankruptcy law. My goal is to keep my fees low and provide my clients with excellent legal services.


In addition to my bankruptcy work, I have provided legal services for IRS offer and compromise, debt settlement, workers’ compensation, family law, Social Security disability, and personal injury cases. I earned a Bachelor in Business Administration degree from Lincoln University, Jefferson City MO, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

I am Of Counsel with Douglas, Haun & Heidemann, P.C., a medium-sized law firm providing legal services for over 100 years. Douglas, Haun & Heidemann, P.C., “Your Lawyers for a Lifetime”, competently practice in the following areas:

  • Banking Law

My community involvement includes participation with Habitat For Humanity, leadership in my church, and participaton in the Council of Churches of the Ozarks.

My wife and I have two children and we are active in school and church.

People often ask me whether I like the practice of bankruptcy law. I say certainly, because I believe it is based on the Old Testament law of Jubilee, regarding debt forgiveness and economic justice, found in Leviticus, Chapter 25.
