J. Scott Wantland, Joe's son, keeps the spirit of service to clients and community alive.  Living in Bullitt County since he was only months old, Scott is proud to be a life-long Bullitt Countian.  Scott is a 1994 graduate of Bullitt East High School and resides right in the middle of Bullitt County today. 

Being licensed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Federal Courts in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, Scott helps families all across the Louisville area (and of course, those at home here in Bullitt County).  Scott's recent recognitions are being named CASA guardian ad litem of the year and being President Elect of the Bullitt County Bar Association.

Scott loves handling Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cases. Bringing a family financial peace is personally rewarding; Scott is quoted as saying “serving people in Kentucky makes me smile.  It's good to know that you are serving your friends and neighbors.” Whether he's working to save a home from foreclosurekeep a car from going to the bank, or just getting rid of some credit card debt , Scott enjoys his work.

Scott spends many late nights helping families become financially secure.  Scott has said “I've had people call me the day before a foreclosure to save the home.  It was a struggle to get it filed, but we saved the home with a Chapter 13.”  As most clients are the working families of Jefferson and Bullitt Counties, he understands sometimes life is hectic and things don't always go as planned.  Scott acknowledges “I've spent many late nights typing Chapter 13's from home in order to put a client's mind at ease.”
