WHY HIRE ME? Filing for bankruptcy can be difficult. As a well-known bankruptcy lawyer, I am here for you and committed to treating you with respect – you are never just a number and a paycheck.  Instead, you are a unique person with unique needs.  I am dedicated to helping you help yourself, at a very difficult time in your life.  If bankruptcy is necessary, it is not the end of your financial life; it is the beginning of your financial freedom.  But done wrong it is the beginning of a nightmare. Please take advantage of a free bankruptcy consultation with me (a retired law professor) before deciding the best path that will protect you and your assets.

Why did I decide to concentrate on bankruptcy?

It’s simple – this area of law 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 all my clients.  To help them to traverse the crevasses between their needs, the law, and the bankruptcy system.  I don’t tell my clients what to do; instead, I explain the legal and practical issues in order for them to make informed decisions. Why bankruptcy is my primary focus.

Bankruptcy is complicated

As an Arizona bankruptcy lawyer, I recognize bankruptcy in Arizona is complicated and must be treated with respect. Many people file bankruptcy in Arizona on their own or using inexperienced attorneys. This can be the beginning of a nightmare. These folks lose their tax refunds, vehicles, inheritance and certain property that is important to them. Normally these problems can be avoided if a bankruptcy is planned properly.

When a bankruptcy in Arizona 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 bankruptcy court orders otherwise a mortgage company, bill collector or creditor cannot meddle with the debtor or any property of the debtor.

Our commitment to each client is to provide them the best guidance we can. Here are some comments from my clients.

Since 1991 we helped over 2,500 people find financial security.

Clients seek our help at time when their lives are turned upside down; most are scared and just want a calm nights sleep. Our responsibility is to guide our clients toward that peaceful sleep, but requires hard work. Many of these reviews describe their successful travel to that peaceful life.

The Kind of Attorney You Want on Your Side… A.V.

someone who can helpDiane Drain is an amazing person. She is the kind of attorney you want on your side and comes highly recommended by other attorney’s. Even though my case was not a bankruptcy case, she took time out of her day to help me find someone who could help me. I don’t know of another attorney that would do this.

Five Stars – A.V.

For Lawyers

Basic Legal Information for Lawyers  

Provided by an Arizona bankruptcy attorney for fellow lawyers. The practice of law becomes more complex each day. The day of the attorney who “does it all” is rapidly waning. Not because one attorney cannot provide good legal and practical advice in several areas of law, but because they probably should not.

Each day there are new laws, new court decisions, new policies or administrative procedures that directly influence existing laws. Each of these changes impact other areas of law. For instance, a change in the tax law affects bankruptcy or real estate law. Or, a federal court decision directly impacts existing state laws.
