Bankruptcy
We specialize in bankruptcy matters, we do not "dabble" in this field of law like some lawyers do, or treat it like a "sideline".
David Ostrander, Denise Shear, and Liz Katz together have almost 50 years of legal experience. They specialize in bankruptcy law so their clients can feel confident that they will be well represented in their bankruptcy matter.

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

Individuals and small business people were not being served well by lawyers in the area as they did not focus on bankruptcy law, but merely "dabbled" in this area of law. Our firm specializes in bankruptcy which means that our clients can be confident that they receive competent and experienced representation in their bankruptcy case or matter.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Two of the three lawyers in the office are Board Certified by the American Board of Certification, an organization that requires lawyers to confirm that they remain knowledgeable about bankruptcy law by annual recertification. All three lawyers are frequent panelists at continuing legal education seminars and programs. Finally, bankruptcy is what we do; we specialize in bankruptcy; it is not a "sideline" to "dabble" in when other practice areas dry up.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We not only represent our clients zealously in the bankruptcy process, we take the time to educate them so they will understand the process and feel comfortable through the conclusion of the case.
