Billbusters, properly known as the law offices of Billbusters, Borges and Wu, LLC.& Borges, LLC., was created when two of the preeminent bankruptcy and consumer rights law firms in the greater Chicago area merged on January 1, 2015. This merger of powerhouse firms formed one of the largest bankruptcy and consumer rights law firms in the nation and, to the best of our knowledge, the largest minority-owned bankruptcy and consumer rights law firm in the Midwest. Driven by a desire to offer the best possible representation to people struggling with financial problems, Billbusters was created for, and remains dedicated to, the proposition that all people, regardless of their financial constraints, are entitled to exceptional legal representation. The two firms that merged to form Billbusters as it is today were the Law Offices of Ernesto D. Borges, Jr. and Ledford & Wu.
Ledford and Wu
Ledford & Wu was formed in 2003 by Sara K. Ledford and Xiaoming Wu. The two worked together at one of the largest consumer bankruptcy firms in the nation when they decided to go into practice for themselves. Their decision was driven by what they believed to be a lack of individual attention and service provided to clients at the large firm where they were working. They wanted a smaller firm environment, where they would have the time and energy to dedicate personal attention to each of their clients. Having been successful in doing so, Ledford & Wu grew rapidly and by the time of the merger with Ernesto D. Borges, Jr., they too were amongst the highest volume filers of consumer bankruptcy cases in the greater Chicago area.
