Dear Prospective Client,
Thank you for considering my firm in your search for legal assistance. I have been practicing law since 1992. Thousands of people have entrusted me with their legal matters. Many of my current clients were referred by previous clients. I keep track of the number of referrals I receive every month because it is a very good indication of how well I am serving my clients. The numbers say I am doing a good job.
It is my goal to ensure that those who are considering bankruptcy can use this site to access information that will answer all of their questions. Feel free to look around, the site is very informative. If you would like answers to your specific questions right away please use the "Tell us About Your Case" form on the right hand portion of this page or call one of the phone numbers at the top of the page; you will be glad that you did.
My goal is for you to have a superior experience with my firm. A superior experience with a law firm begins with a superior experience in communication. Over the years I have developed and implemented many different systems to help me achieve the goal of communicating effectively with my clients. I know that my clients want timely responses to their phone calls so I have what I call a "phone block." Everyday I have a block of time set aside to return phone calls. If you call me and I am not available you will be invited to set an appointment during my phone block. My phone block is at different times throughout the week so I can accommodate just about everyone's schedule. The feedback on this system has been great so it is a permanent part of my practice.
I will educate you
I spend a lot of time educating my clients. I have an informational packet that will be a big part of our initial consultation. This tool will assist me in answering all of your questions and explaining all of your options. I promise that you will have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your financial future after your consult with me, and the consultation is free.
I will make it easy
Most bankruptcy attorneys have a workbook and it's usually rather long. To my knowledge, I am the only attorney in town who will take the time to help you complete this workbook. I can usually complete most of the workbook with you before the end of our first meeting. It is a huge time saver for you because you won't have to wonder if you are doing everything correctly. I will also provide you a type written list of documents that I need and an expando file with separately labeled folders to organize the documents. I will obtain a commercial grade, three source credit report that automatically downloads to my computer so there is no need to make a list of your creditors. I will also enroll you in the credit counseling class and the financial management class which can be done online or over the phone in the comfort of your home. I will also prepare the petition, statements and schedules for you (it's usually 30-40 pages long), review them with you as you sign them, electronically file the documents with the bankruptcy court, attend the 341 hearing with you, handle reaffirmation agreements, obtain a discharge order and remain available to you until a closing order is received.
I stand behind my work
I offer a money back guarantee to all of my Chapter 7 clients. If you do not receive a discharge order due to my error I will refund your fee. By the way, I have been practicing since 1992 and this has never happened. This is because I work diligently on every case and I have a highly trained staff.
I know there are many bankruptcy attorneys to choose from. If you hire me I will keep you informed of the status of the case and work hard to get you a fresh financial start.
