    I have had the opportunity to see Kevin Heitke representing clients in the Rhode Island Bankruptcy Court. He has handled many complicated cases, and always demonstrates competence and diligence. I have also read some of his filings in that Court, and his depth of knowledge and familiarity with complex matters of law never fails to impress me.
