I was just checking out the site of Shaw & Associates, a bankruptcy attorney with an alternative to bankruptcy, and this is the picture that hits you smack in the face. Really, green teeth and green eyes? It’s obviously a web designer issue but whoever posted this picture needs to be __________ (you fill in the blank).
Here is the full home page to put the picture above into context.
The site describes the services they offer by saying:
The mission of Shaw & Associates is to offer solutions for credible people with credit card problems. This includes consumer debt problems.This is not debt consolidation, not reducing debt and not repairing credit reports.We are an advocate, a “champion” in your corner.

And just in case you thought they were talking about debt settlement, they apparently are not since the site also says, “A Bankruptcy Attorney with an Alternative to Bankruptcy. Beware of predators offering debt settlement, debt consolidation or debt reduction.”

For most of my career, I’ve represented creditors and witnessed debtors lose their material possessions, but more importantly, their dignity and confidence, “For most of my career, I’ve represented creditors and witnessed debtors lose their material possessions, but more importantly, their dignity and confidence,” said Judge Jed Shaw, Shaw & Associates lead attorney. “Oftentimes, through no fault of their own, very credible people are debt-heavy due to the economic downtown, health challenges and medical bills, or job loss.
