Reed Allmand is a certified bankruptcy specialist in Dallas, Texas.
Reed Allmand’s vision is rooted in his own financially precarious childhood in Abilene. “My father always had difficulty holding a job and supporting our family, so after my parents divorced when I was 12, my sister and I got jobs to help make ends meet,” he recalls. “I remember what it felt like as a child to worry that our car would be repossessed or home foreclosed on. I knew that I wanted a career that would give me financial security and allow me to support a family.”
That desire and drive to succeed led Allmand to Abilene Christian University in Abilene TX, where he majored in Finance and Accounting, graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, followed by a Juris Doctorate from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in Fort Worth.
The combination of business and legal education with both the religious and laic perspective has helped Allmand fulfill his personal and professional goals.
“Abilene Christian University emphasized using your profession to be a servant for God. I wanted to accomplish this but was uncertain how I could do so in the legal field,” he says. “I feel that I was ‘led’ into the bankruptcy profession for a reason, and I am so grateful to have an opportunity to serve families in financial distress by finding a solution to their problems.”
