This firm’s mission is to give you as much control over your life as possible. Please don’t try to avoid reality; doing so only delays the inevitable.
Nobody, and I mean nobody, wants to declare bankruptcy. Having said that, bankruptcy may be your only option to protect your health and peace of mind. It also protects the health and peace of mind of your family, friends and fellow employees or employers.
I am committed to treating our clients with dignity and respect.
Unlike law firms that publicly proclaim at national marketing conferences that their clients are “sales” and their employees are “inventory”. For example, Lawrence Pew, who is now disbarred, case: 18-2852, charges: 11. I am disgusted by this attitude, and believe that every attorney should be truly committed to serving their clients.
My goal is to educate you on your options and the entire bankruptcy process from beginning to end.
I also assist you in making future plans. We are focused on quality rather than quantity. To put it another way, we regard each of our clients as an individual with unique needs. We never treat our clients like they’ve walked into a used car dealership, unlike law firms that advertise on television in order to attract as many clients as possible. These lawyers brag to their colleagues about their “monthly gross income of…” They never discuss the value of the services they provide to their clients. That mindset is abhorrent, and it will never be tolerated in my firm.
What are the terms “Pre-Petition Assets” and “Pre-Petition Debts”? What are Assets and Debts after filing the bankruptcy in Arizona?
Pre-petition assets are assets that you owned prior to filing for bankruptcy. Some of these assets may be used to settle pre-petition debts, or payments owed prior to filing for bankruptcy. In a chapter 7, any assets you obtain after filing for bankruptcy in Arizona are usually considered post-petition assets, and most of your pre-petition creditors cannot seize them. Similarly, any liabilities you incur after filing for bankruptcy, referred to as post-petition liabilities, are not discharged in a bankruptcy proceeding. But note that this may differ slightly in a chapter 13 case.
Bankruptcy in Arizona is a complex interaction of multiple laws that should not be attempted without competent legal counsel.
Do not hire inexperienced attorneys who are unfamiliar with bankruptcy law. I say this not to scare you, but because I’ve seen good people make bad and costly decisions without realizing it.
The Right to file Bankruptcy bankruptcy in Arizona is Protected by the United States Constitutional.
As early as 1789, Congress was authorized by the US Constitution’s Art. 1, Section 8, Clause 4 to enact bankruptcy laws to assist all citizens in obtaining a fresh start. The first bankruptcy law was enacted in 1800. Clearly, this option has been viewed as an important tool for protecting our citizens. As a result, you should never feel obligated to apologize to me or anyone else for exercising your constitutional rights.
