About Attorney Della J. Durham

A native Texan, I grew up in Coleman, Texas and graduated from Coleman High School as a proud Coleman Bluecat. Shortly thereafter, my husband and I made our permanent home in Abilene, Texas, where we raised our two children. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from McMurry University in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Medical Technology and worked for several years as a Medical Technologist at Hendrick Medical Center. In my position as a Medical Technologist I was occasionally called into court to testify in criminal cases. As a result, I soon became interested in studying law.

I attended law school in Lubbock and received my Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1997. Upon returning to Abilene, I began my legal career as a staff attorney with Noah Project, Inc. of Abilene, where I represented victims of family violence in Taylor County and ten surrounding counties. Subsequently, I became an associate attorney with Monte J. White and Associates, P.C., where I practiced primarily Bankruptcy law. Through 2006, I maintained a very busy, high volume bankruptcy law practice representing both consumer debtors and business debtors in Federal Bankruptcy Court.

I am now proud to announce the opening of my own law practice, The Law Office of Della J. Durham, P.C. where I am continuing to practice bankruptcy law. By maintaining a small, low volume bankruptcy law practice, I welcome the opportunity to be able to offer my clients legal services in a more personalized manner.
