About Your Legal Leg UpTM


Your Legal Leg Up was founded in 2007 as a way to get more help to more consumers being harassed or sued by debt collectors--more cost-effectively. All our products and services, paid or not, are designed to help people learn how to represent themselves so they can beat debt collectors (or original creditors) without having to hire a lawyer. And to help them have the courage it takes to take them on.

Kenneth Gibert grew up in Atlanta, GA and attended college in Northfield, Minnesota at Carleton College. He attended Washington University Law School, graduating near the top of his class in 1989 and practiced law for fifteen years in St. Louis, Missouri before shifting his efforts to Your Legal Leg Up. While practicing consumer protection law, Gibert represented hundreds of clients and won numerous awards of monetary compensation, damages and punitive damages, credit reparation, and release from contract. He was also able to put a number of unscrupulous businesses out of the business of defrauding consumers and saved thousands of potential victims of the schemes.

His practice ultimately shifted towards consumer debt litigation and third-party debt cases. He came to the conclusions that many citizens didn't know their rights and couldn't afford an attorney, but that they could effectively represent themselves against the debt collectors if they had a little help. Therefore, he created YourLegalLegUp.com, the Litigation Manual and the forms and other information available as a part of his campaign to empower regular people to defend themselves and protect their financial future.

In addition to the materials on this site, he has published dozens of articles in a variety of places.
