Because Jay and I are here for you and committed to treat you with respect.
In this office you are not just a number and a paycheck. Instead, you are a unique person with unique needs. We are dedicated to help you help yourself at a very difficult time in your life.
You may wonder why I decided to concentrate on bankruptcy as my primary area of practice.
It’s simple – this is an area of law that reminds me of why I went to law school – to help others in their time of need. My goal is to be an experienced guide for my clients. Help them to traverse the crevasses between their needs, the law and the bankruptcy system. I don’t tell my clients what to do; I explain the legal and practical issues in order for them to make informed decisions.
When a bankruptcy is filed a “magical” umbrella, called the automatic stay, protects the debtor and their property. This umbrella is so powerful that it stops almost everyone in their tracks – even the IRS. Unless a court orders otherwise a mortgage company, bill collector or creditor cannot meddle with the debtor or any property of the debtor. There is light at the end of a properly planned bankruptcy, but it requires commitment to the process – being accurate and thorough.
