All initial consultations for debt matters ars no cost. There is no standard pricing as we handle complex cases for small business owners and consumers in most chapters of bankruptcy (7; 13: 11; Sub V; etc) and other debt resolution matters.
How did you get started in this business?
It was apparent that many people run into financial problems not of their own making; and that a specialized service was needed to help people escape the debt traps they found themselves in. We not only help resolve the debt but also help them come to terms with how they got there. It's a very rewarding feeling to help people turn their lives around.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with all level of clients; from the little old lady retired from the bank who can no longer afford her medications to Owners faced with the prospect of losing their ocean front homes due to medical or economic causes beyond their control.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
We recently restructured a regional company under the new Sub-section V of Chapter 11 resulting in saving the jobs of over a dozen emplotees and the livelyhood of the four families that owned it. At the other end of the story, we help needy veterans and elderly clients through our pro bono efforts.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
You must be comfortable with the person you cjoose to work with because your financial future depends on the completeness of the result provided.
I tell folks, "If you're not comfortable with me, you need to find someone you ARE comfortable with."
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Most clients will do about anything; and do without almost everything (including feed their children mac and cheese seven nights a week) to avoid bankruptcy. They need to let go of the guilt. After all, they didn't get into the problem intentionally. Remember, Bankrptcy is NOT the end. It's the beginning of a better life!
