MUSINGS BY DIANE: “My personal thanks goes out to Dwayne Farnsworth for drafting these changes and lobbying to move the bill through the Legislature (not an easy job). All of his work made it easy to shepherd the bill through the final process and get it signed into law.
Dwayne – all of Arizona citizens thank you for your dedication.”

Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event, and selecting the right attorney can add to this stress.
