Timothy J. Helbing

Born and raised in Janesville, WI, Tim received his undergraduate degree from Edgewood College in 1996. He obtained his law degree from Hamline University School of Law in 2000.

Today, Tim owns and operates the Helbing Law Office in Appleton, WI where his practice is dedicated to representing individuals and small business debtors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies and other debt relief programs.

Tim chose this area of practice because he truly believes that bad things happen to good people. As a family man and business owner himself, he understands the fear that many people feel over the prospect of losing their homes, cars and other valuable assets.

It is his privilege to help people find reasonable solutions to dire financial situations. He wants to assist those individuals in the Fox Valley community who are struggling with financial problems and provide the much-needed assistance they need to begin a happier and healthier financial life.

On top of offering clients the option of bankruptcy protection, Tim provides clients with the option of a Wisconsin state Chapter 128 filing.

When he's not in the office, you will most likely find Tim spending time with his two amazing sons, Tyler and Alex, or at an area youth soccer game or the dojo, where he has earned the rank of Nidan (Second-degree black belt) in Shuri Te jujitsu and advanced student level in Inayan System 3 eskrima.
