Helping Friends at Thanksgiving

At Bond & Botes, we look forward to these things and are thankful for the many clients that we have been able to serve in the past year. We take great pride in being able to provide our clients with quality representation and compassion as they are going through tough times.

We are also mindful that many people will spend the Thanksgiving Holiday alone and or under the heavy weight of depression and anxiety. The depression that these folks endure is amplified because they see other people enjoying happiness and time with loved ones. They feel excluded and hurt. Anyone who has ever experienced depression knows that the pain is real and can be very intense.

In my experience, one of the greatest causes of anxiety and depression for individuals can be financial challenges that seem insurmountable. Financial problems can lead to marital and other family struggles. The best way to show love to a neighbor dealing with financial problems is to help them address the issues they are dealing with. Procrastination and continued worrying will only make the matters worse.

Sometimes he hardest things for an individual to do can be to acknowledge that they need help. If you or someone you care about is dealing with the stress that money problems bring, please know that we are here and want to help you. At our conveniently located law offices, we offer free consultations with experienced attorneys during which we will help you find a solution to your challenges. Please don’t spend the Thanksgiving Holiday worrying. Know that help is available and give us a call if we can offer assistance to you or a friend.

Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!
