Amanda A. Page, Esq.


I am a Southfield attorney with a focus on helping my clients move toward a financial secure future by providing holistic and personalized counsel with debt settlement/management, bankruptcy and credit repair. I provide a personal approach to each client’s specific needs. My practice has grown over the years, one client at a time, one case at a time and one day at a time.

I am an advocate for my client’s life after debt by taking a holistic integrated assessment of my client’s financial situation and help them determine the best course of action to ensure them and their families a secure financial future. I strive to provide the tools to build a bridge between my client’s current financial burdens to their future financial freedom.

My purpose and goal as an attorney is to advocate, inform and empower my clients on their path to a financially secure future.

I started this firm in June, 2013 after my previous experience as an associate attorney with two large law firms and as a staff attorney for a national debt collection company. My vast and varied background allows me to provide a large firm expertise while allowing me to bring a personal approach to ensure that my client’s legal needs and issues are being addressed and met. My approach is personalized, holistic and practical. I listen closely to my clients to gain a thorough understanding of their overall situation and empower them with a comprehensive plan of action to address their concerns so I can best help to achieve their goals.

I have a deep commitment to community involvement. My great-grandparents, grandparents and parents were all farmers and they instilled in me the philosophy to leave an impact on the world by making it a better place. I strive every day to make sure that I fulfill this philosophy by being actively involved in non-profits, organizations and committees that further this cause.

I am on the board of the Meadowbrook Center for Learning Differences which provides tutoring to underprivileged students with unique learning circumstances.  I am also the chair of the Oakland County Bar Associations Debtor/Creditor Committee.  In addition, I serve on the City of Royal Oak’s Zoning Board of Appeals. To keep in touch with my farm roots I sponsor a 4-H youth member at the Saginaw County Fair every summer. Finally, to feed and refuel my soul I am a parishioner of the St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Pontiac.
