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

I chose my primary area of practice because it joins finance with personal contact.

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

The best clients are those I see who have educated themselves about bankruptcy law and who have their documents and facts ready at the first meeting. They recognize the importance of what has to be done.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

This is a "given." This office always reviews documents presented by clients.

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

This may be more expensive and not worth the effort in the long run. In bankruptcy law, the courts have strict rules about assisting in pro per debtors. I am willing to try it on a trial basis.

I have over 30 years of experience as an attorney and I've been working in the area of bankruptcy law since 1978.
