Kenneth L. Neeley
Attorney & Counselor at Law
I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Management of
Information Systems and completed law school at the University of Nevada,
Las Vegas. After law school, I moved to Gilbert, Arizona and passed the
Arizona Bar Exam (and, by some miracle, even achieved the highest score
in the state).
Before opening my own practice I owned a custom software development company.
My experience with explaining complex technology to business executives
helped me learn how to take a complicated process and explain it in an
understandable way. I will do that for you in your legal matter.
I have 5 kids and a beautiful wife who told me that after I graduated from
UNLV she wanted to leave Las Vegas for someplace with four seasons and
cooler weather – then I found a job in Phoenix… sorry Honey.
Over the years I have become a member of the State Bar of Arizona, the
State Bar of Nevada, the Federal Bar Association (Bankruptcy Section),
the Arizona Bankruptcy American Inn of Court, the Arizona Consumer Bankruptcy
Counsel, the American Bar Association, the Maricopa County Bar Association,
the National Association of Consumer Advocates, and the National Association
of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
Joseph P. Brown
Attorney & Counselor at Law
I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political
Science. I went on to earn my Juris Doctor (J.D.) from The John Marshall
Law School in Chicago, Illinois.
I like to avoid any serious thinking on the weekend, and I enjoy baseball
and watching my beloved Detroit Lions—I still remember exactly where
I was when the Lions snapped their 22 game losing streak. I make a mean
cheese cake, like watching people standing in line at Redbox video machines,
and am looking forward to traveling to all the countries in South America.
I am excited to be a part of the Neeley Law Firm, because we are all on
the same page in terms of striving to get the best solution for our clients.
I represent many of the Neeley Law Firm's bankruptcy clients. I have
also worked on various tax debt matters including Offers in Compromise,
Installment Agreements, Penalty Abatements, and Innocent Spouse Relief.
I find tax law to be complex, yet very interesting.
I am licensed to practice law in all of Arizona state courts, as well as
the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, and the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona.
Teresa E. Lowe
I really enjoy working with the attorneys and staff at our firm because
everyone is committed to helping our clients find the best outcome to
a difficult situation.
I have completed a paralegal certificate program through Phoenix College
and will likely continue my education through the next few years. I have
grown with the firm and prior to that I was working in restaurants paying
my way through college.
In my free time I enjoy volunteering for a local dog rescue and spending
time with friends and family.
Jody E. McClelland
I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree
in Sociology, obtained a Teaching Certification through Ottowa University
and received my Masters in Education Leadership at Northern Arizona University.
Working at Neeley Law Firm is rewarding because I am able to help others
by supporting them through a difficult situation.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and my fiancé.
When I am at home you will find me in the kitchen trying new recipes or
playing cards with my girls. I am an amazing Hip Hop dancer, and I hope
to one day visit libraries around the world.
Caley B. Meegan
My career in the field of bankruptcy law started while I was studying for
my undergraduate degree at ASU. I began working at a large firm close
to campus where I started as a receptionist but soon gained the skills
and knowledge to become a paralegal. I have spent time working with family
law and landlord-tenant law attorneys. However, bankruptcy is my preferred
field of practice. I find it rewarding to help people start anew.
I studied at both Arizona State University and Brigham Young University
– Hawaii. I left one school with a double major in Justice Studies
& Religious Studies and the other with a good tan! If BYU-H offered
an undergraduate degree in surfing, I would have earned one of those too.
I enjoy hiking, running and spending time with my 4-year-old son. I used
to figure-skate competitively and still like to drop by the rink every
once in a while.
Bruce R. Goodmansen
Client Service Director
I joined the Neeley Law Firm to serve as a client advocate; thus, my whole
job is to ensure that our clients' needs are being met. I help them
find the resources to rebuild credit, purchase cars, rent apartments,
or buy homes after their bankruptcy has been discharged. I also write
articles that are of interest to all—well, mostly all.
As an undergraduate I was encouraged to take the Masters of Instructional
Science program at Brigham Young University. My college credentials afforded
me the ability to write the bestselling and hard-hitting book: The Official
Snipe Hunting Field Guide. I have traveled the world, but now I stay close
to home because Wilson the Beast, my wily, adopted cat, needs a good part
of my attention.
After I earned by MRS degree, summa cum laude, at Brigham Young University,
and raised 12 wonderful kids to adulthood, I started my career by managing
two adult care facilities that specialize in Alzheimer's care in Mesa,
AZ, before coming to the Neeley Law Firm. I've been called "the
friendliest person on earth," but I don't know about that…
maybe just the friendliest in the Country. After all, I do sometimes restrict
access to the community candy jar (an act of tyranny in the minds of some
Neeley Law Firm staff).
I spend my free time enjoying 18 delightful grandchildren, Googling recipes
that will enhance the flavor of baby Brussels sprouts, and correcting
those who have a tendency to construct words inappropriately within the
confines of an awkward sentence.
