Firm Overview

The Bankruptcy Law Office of Richard A. Check, S.C. was established in 1998 and has been practicing exclusively Federal Bankruptcy law for both small businesses and individuals ever since.

I started the Bankruptcy Law Office of Richard A. Check, S.C. to fill the need in Southeastern Wisconsin for a quality law firm working exclusively in the area of Bankruptcy law. With the strong demand for superior service and quality legal work, we focus primarily on helping with personal and small business bankruptcies.

Example cases

My firm practices exclusively bankruptcy law and primarily handles small business and personal bankruptcy issues in both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.

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

Bankruptcy law is one of the few modalities where you can use your legal skill set to help people, and when their cases are finished, they are happy.

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

We have a large clientele of Pro Se filers who hire us because they often find themselves in jeopardy of having their cases dismissed or of losing their assets.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am extremely willing to review documents prepared by clients.

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

In our jurisdiction, you cannot coach clients who want to represent themselves. Attorneys are only able to step in as representation on already filed cases.

My practical work expertise, along with a prestigious business degree, followed by a law degree from Indiana University assembled the perfect combination for me to become a Bankruptcy attorney.

I am extremely organized and have extensive knowledge of bankruptcy law.

Personal interests:
