Attorney Barkley Smith

I grew up in Rural Missouri on a Farm outside of St. Louis. I played three Varsity Sports through High School (Baseball, Wrestling and Soccer). I received my B.A. in Psychology from Columbia College in Columbia, Missouri. I competed in and won my group at the Mid-West Psychology Conference. I graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law in 2012. I spent my last year of Law School volunteering for the Mid-West Innocence Project, assisting innocent individuals who were wrongfully incarcerated. After living in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, I knew I would eventually live near mountains. I moved to Boise almost immediately after passing the Bar Exam in Missouri. When I’m not at the office I enjoy riding my mountain bike in the foothills, Fly Fishing/Fly Tying, camping, golf, and almost anything outdoors.

My goal is to help individuals who are being harassed by aggressive Bill Collectors. The FDCPA gives individuals who owe money rights against their debt collectors. Debt Collectors can cause a lot of stress and anxiety in people’s lives. Many people are unaware that Debt Collectors have Laws/Rules they have to follow. If they violate these Laws/Rules then the debt collector has to pay the individual they are collecting from $1,000.00 and the attorney fees for prosecuting the action. Most people like the idea of collecting $1,000 from the people who are harassing them.
