Although Attorney Trask specializes in bankruptcy and debt collection, his strong interdisciplinary background, including his experience in criminal and family law, provides him with unique insight into crisis planning and conflict of law scenarios. I have consulted with Attorney Trask numerous times in my family law practice to obtain his input on the possible impact of bankruptcy where the parties are engaged in ongoing, often contentious divorce proceedings. His understanding of the complex interplay between divorce and bankruptcy has proven invaluable in scenarios where clients must choose between filing for bankruptcy individually or jointly prior to completing their divorce, or individually after the divorce has concluded. Attorney Trask is a trusted colleague and skilled attorney who I have no hesitation endorsing in all respects.
