  • I Know of What I Speak

    On the home page of my website I say: “I've been there.  I know what it is to wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to go back to sleep for the swirling of midnight money sweats.” Some professionals work in areas they haven’t experienced themselves – I don’t expect my plumber to have personally ...

  • What Attorney’s Won’t Tell You – Wait

    Wait.  Why?  They’re businessmen/women like everyone else and you’ll never find the Culligan Man telling you to wait to soften your water. I’ve had several situations just this month when I’ve told a client to wait: - A house that we weren’t sure if a short sale would be successful, but we wanted to extend time in the house.  Also if the short sale wasn’t ...

  • As Qualifying for Bankruptcy Get Harder, Experience Becomes Important, Much More Important

    As if the myriad of federal laws and rules with state specific twists wasn't enough, many of the tools we bankruptcy attorneys used just aren't flying anymore.  We're getting hammered on the income side, on specific expenses and they're holding our feet to the fire on particulars like first and second mortgage payments made.  The court is also working ...

  • Get a Second Opinion

    Attorneys are great at sounding authoritative.  We have to – that’s how you get your point across in a courtroom.  We sound like we know exactly what we’re talking about every moment of every day.  Anyone married to a lawyer knows exactly what I’m talk about (sorry Honey!). Knowing that, don’t let a major life decision by made by one guy who sounds knowledgeable. Have your ...

  • The Dark Underbelly of Bankruptcy

    It’s a sad fact is that many bankruptcy firms have a sales, not a helping or service, mindset. They track the sales statistics of their attorneys and the attorneys are incentivized to “sell” bankruptcies just like HMO doctors are to deny medical care and timeshare guys are to sell you a week in Maui. Yikes! It’s tough to imagine you’re ...

  • Choose Your Team Carefully

    When I was first married and so poor that ketchup was a luxury, I needed to go to the dentist. I went to the office closest to my house because I saw him in the Pennysaver. I was told I needed several fillings, a tooth pulled and a bridge. I was all of 24 years old. I had the fillings done that day and ...

  • What a Good Bankruptcy Attorney Won’t Do

    Meeting with a bankruptcy attorney is not high on most people’s list of fun things to do.  In fact, I was told by a client as she walked in the door that she’d rather get a mammogram than meet with me.  All was well at the end, but she had that much trepidation walking in. There are a few things a good bankruptcy attorney won’t do – and I think ...
