Seth grew up in Central California and spent many years as a young man working with his father and brothers on a family-owned-and-operated almond orchard. After leaving home, he spent two years performing volunteer service in South America.

Seth graduated from Brigham Young University in 1998, cum laude, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies. He received his Juris Doctorate, magna cum laude, in 2001 from the J. Reuben Clark School of Law, Brigham Young University. During law school, he served as a senior editor for the BYU Law Review. In 2000, he published “Bernstein v. United States Department of Justice: A Cryptic Interpretation of Speech” in the BYU Law Review.

As an experienced bankruptcy attorney Seth brings to his practice the level of service, dedication, and proficiency one would expect to find in a large firm but without paying large-firm rates.

Seth opened his own law firm in 2006. Since then he has helped hundreds of families and individuals file for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Seth and his staff believe every client should be treated with professionalism and dignity.

Seth is married to Rebecca Merrill Hanson and is the proud father of four children. He enjoys spending time with his family in the outdoors.

Seth has been actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America, receiving his Eagle Scout Award as a young man. More recently, he has served in adult leadership capacities and supports his two sons in Scouting. He has rendered pro bono legal services for the indigent and elderly with Legal Services of Northern California. His strong involvement in his church can be seen from his work in teaching a daily Bible study course to local high school students.

Seth has an “Of Counsel” relationship with Penney & Associates (
