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

It happened to be the job I got right out of law school; however, I would not trade it for anything. It is very gratifying to take away the stress of financial problems for my clients and give them the fresh start they deserve.

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

It is very important for clients to be fully educated on the bankruptcy process. However, it is important to note that sources for bankruptcy information are often incorrect. Clients should always voice their concerns or question what they do not understand.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We are happy to review any documents that the client has prepared to help us understand their particular situation, however, documents to be filed with the Court must be prepared by our office.

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

I am unwilling to coach clients who want to represent themselves.

Julie A. Smyk

I worked for a very large bankruptcy law firm for 7 years. I represented debtors filing Chapter 7 & Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy law has been my sole focus since 1997. This has given me the ability to become an expert in this area of law. In addition, I have formed important relationships with other bankruptcy attorneys and trustee staff members which allows me to resolve most issues easily and amicably without causing extra, unnecessary stress to the client.

It is important to me to treat every client with kindness and compassion.I am very organized and very involved in every case. Our office will give clients the respect that they deserve.

Personal interests:

I am kept pretty busy with two young children; however, I enjoy reading, traveling and relaxing!
