About Our Firm


The firm which has become Norman and Bullington P.A. was formed by Sheila D. Norman in 1993 after Ms. Norman practiced commercial litigation, representing creditors in various matters including foreclosure and bankruptcy cases for three years.   Ms. Norman worked closely for several years with a local bankruptcy attorney and Chapter 7 trustee, obtaining experience in a wide range of bankruptcy cases and representing trustees.     In 2005, Walter G. Bullington Jr.  joined the firm after several years of work as an attorney for Chapter 13 trustee, including time at the offices of each of the Chapter 13 trustee’s offices.

Both Ms. Norman and Mr. Bullington now practice primarily bankruptcy law, assisting debtors in filing bankruptcy cases.      They each obtained all of their experience in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida (excepting more limited experience in Fort Myers).    They have each practiced in front of all of the current bankruptcy judges since they took the bench.


Our firm provides a complete range of bankruptcy filings including Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12 and Chapter 13 cases.    Our firm can handle more complicated consumer issues that some firms will be unable to handle.    Handling more complicated matters and maintaining regular attendance at educational programs for bankruptcy attorneys helps us make sure that we are prepared to spot in advance and properly prepare for any issues that arise with respect to your bankruptcy case.   Some attorneys will not continue with cases when they become complicated.  Whether your goals will be best accomplished by a Chapter 7, Chapter 13, Chapter 11 or Chapter 12, we can assist you, providing a full range of options.    We represent both individuals and businesses.


We opened our offices in Spring Hill in order to provide convenience to our clients in the Northern part of the Tampa Division.    We offer appointments in a convenient location on Spring Hill Drive so that you do not have to drive to Tampa to meet with your attorneys.   This office is very important to our firm and is staffed during regular business hours.    You also benefit from our Tampa offices, convenient to the bankruptcy court and the US Trustee’s office.     This allows you a place to meet with us in Tampa if necessary and allows us to pass along to you the benefits of having an office convenient to the bankruptcy court.    No party will be tempted to obtain an unfair advantage because your attorney is far away from court.

Although we offer other services in our Tampa offices, we only offer bankruptcy and tax problem resolution services in our Spring Hill office because we believe that clients benefit from experience in front of local judges and there is no saving benefit for clients in other practice areas to use us as opposed to a local attorney.


We will provide a fee quote after discussing your financial situation at your initial consultation.    We want to ensure that we have a good understanding of your financial situation and provide you with a reasonable fee with a good idea of your complete financial situation.


Our experienced staff understands that the bankruptcy process can be difficult and is dedicated to making it as easy as possible and no more stressful than necessary.
