Firm Overview

The origins of the firm date back to 1995. Prior to starting the firm, I worked with creditor firms on the other side of bankruptcy.

My law firm is focused on helping individuals in times of need. The firm is primarily focused on delivering superior service to our clients during our efforts to bring the individual back to financial well being. We also handle family law matters and personal injury, but remain focused on bankruptcy.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

After representing creditors, I yearned to do what I always wanted to do- represent the individual. Bankruptcy is a great area of the law to really help the individual.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

There is ample opportunity for the client to educate themselves outside of my practice. I encourage it. However, every situation is different and can involve complexities that the client is not aware of. Ultimately, the client is hiring me because of my education and experience. Much of the burden is relieved from the client's shoulders. I take on each case as if it were my only case.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am more than willing to review documents prepared by my clients. My philosophy is the more information the better.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I must admit that I am in the business of practicing law. Given the complexities of each bankruptcy, I cannot imagine a bankruptcy being prepared correctly by the client all by themselves.

A. Forrest Morad

After completing law school, I immediately began practice at a large creditor rights firm. I also worked for another firm that specialized in representing large retail companies in their efforts to obtain debt recoveries.

I held a bankruptcy clerkship with the Honorable Stacey Cotton.and worked at large creditor based firms out of law school. I have a substantial working knowledge of how these creditors work. This has proven to be a great advantage to my working on the debtor side. My bankruptcy work product benefits from my experience.

My strengths are my compassion for each client and my hands-on approach. My style is empathetic and nonjudgmental. I never look down on others for needing assistance during difficult times.

Personal interests:

In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family. I am very family-oriented. I also enjoy working around the house and gardening.
