How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
The founder of Lincoln Law initially started his legal career in corporate law. Disenchanted by big business, he decided to help those who were often unable to help themselves. With the understanding of the intense financial and emotional burden that out of control debt can inevitably bear on a family, consumer rights was a clear choice. And ever since, helping those in debt has become our passion. The attorneys and staff selected to represent Lincoln's legacy are rigorously selected based on core values similar to those that started it all.
What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others
Our attorneys have graduated from Berkeley Law, UCLA, BYU and Oklahoma City University with various honors including multiple Manga Cum Laude, the CALI award and the American Bankruptcy Institute's Medal of Excellence for contributions to the field of bankruptcy. However, our attorneys are not selected solely based on their legal understanding and accomplishments, but for their passion, integrity and respect for all.
What distinguishes your law firm from others?
Lincoln Law is a leader of the bankruptcy industry, developing programs and tools that have been widespread by the US legal community. Lincoln Law is an active contributor to the by-invitation-only American Consumer Bankruptcy College and member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. Since opening our doors in 2001, we have helped thousands of families become debt-free. We operate out of two states and have also opened a litigation office among other services to specifically help our bankruptcy clients that are suffering from legal and financial issues outside of the normal scope of bankruptcy.
