We are not a "factory" and each and every client is important to us. We really care.

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

Bankruptcy law from a brief internet summary may seem modest to deal with, but in reality it is a very complex set of laws that requires not only much "book" knowledge, but also the practical experience in having represented bankruptcy clients for many years in all types of situations and in dealing with all types of issues. It is also an area of the law that can give a fresh start on life for an individual or family. We care about our clients!
