Firm Overview

My firm was established in 2007, after having served as a Managing Attorney for a nationwide law firm's bankruptcy practice for several years. My firm focuses on providing personable representation for clients who are in need of assistance in resolving their financial hardships.

Example cases

Most recently, I represented landlords who had suffered the effect of the real estate melt-down, and small businesses who want to continue operations or cease operations. The most typical case will involve people who have foreclosure hardships, repossessions, or wage garnishments.

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

Bankruptcy chose me. I was hired on as a bankruptcy attorney for my first professional position as an attorney, and decided I enjoyed the dynamics of bankruptcy that I decided to remain in the practice of bankruptcy.

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

I believe a client should be as informed as possible so they are prepared to make an educated choice after their legal consultation with my office. I find that most clients say they understand once I am done explaining the process and complexities in their case.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I find that clients who are seeking the guidance are typically not prepared to represent themselves. Therefore, I will only do full-service representation, which involves case conceptualization allowing the attorney to best protect the client's best interests.

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

I will only agree to perhaps take over the representation if the case has not been compromised by the client's actions up to the point in time when they are seeking help. Most things are salvageable, but in bankruptcy there are some uncorrectable items that would require close attorney review and consideration.

Leticia Tanner

I have worked as a bankruptcy lawyer for ten years in very high volume practices, which has allowed me to be more experienced in my field. Having practiced bankruptcy exclusively in a high volume office has given me the exposure and experience, allowing for more effective representation of all seeking assistance.

My strength is my ability to relate to others and listen carefully to their concerns. My style is personable, friendly, and approachable.

Personal interests:

I enjoy spending time with my family, bicycling, running, and water sports in the summer.
