    I endorse this lawyer. Wade and I have worked together for a number of years practicing bankruptcy law. He usually is representing debtors and I am usually representing creditors. He is my "go to" person for any debtor-related questions. Not only a knowledgeable and caring lawyer but a great person as well.
