I was admitted to the practice of law in the State of Indiana and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana in 1981. At present, my practice is limited to consumer bankruptcies, Chapters 7 and 13, and my responsibilities as an Independent Hearing Officer for the State of Indiana, handling disputes between schools and parents regarding their special needs children.
My clients receive an amount of direct personal attention rarely found in the practice of law today. They may call me directly at any time. I have no receptionists, secretaries, paralegals, associates, or partners to dilute the attorney-client relationship. I consider it my personal responsibility to make sure my clients understand all aspects of their bankruptcy process.
I do not burden my clients with video tapes to watch and stacks of forms and questionnaires to fill out. While many lawyers consider this to be an "efficient" way to practice law, I take the time to make sure my clients understand the meaning and purpose of each of the numerous questions the Bankruptcy Court asks, and the disclosures the Court requires them to make. I have found that most, if not all, potential legal complications can be avoided by a thorough knowledge of my client's situation and my client's clear understanding of the law's requirements.
While it is possible that you might find a "cheaper" lawyer, please give serious consideration to the time, personal attention, and quality of services that the lawyer is able to provide, and the burden of time, work, and confusion that his/her services will place on you.
You may contact me at any time at my phone number which is (317) 923-2234 or at my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
