About me

The decision to file for Bankruptcy is difficult for many people.  The process can be emotional and overwhelming. I started doing bankruptcy work because it feels good to help people.  While I have worked in many area's of law over the past 27 years, I can honestly say that bankruptcy work is the most satisfying legal work I have done, because people are genuinely happy after they complete the process and receive their discharge.  It's as if a huge weight has been lifted off their shoulders and I helped them to get that relief.

I also believe it is important that you choose an attorney with empathy and one that you like as a person.  It makes things so much easier if you know that your attorney cares about you, that he or she will personally take your calls, or answer your emails, instead of treating you like just another filing.  I believe in providing my clients with professional and personal service at a fair price.  I worked by may through College and Law School waiting tables, cooking and tending bar.  I am no different than my clients, I just happen to have a law degree and that allows me to help them get a new lease on life.

  • Robert F. Mirque Jr.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ralph for a number of years and I cannot endorse him more highly. His knowledge of the law is exceptional and his care for his clients is outstanding. Whenever I have a client seeking advice on a bankruptcy issue, I have never hesitated in recommending Ralph to him or her. In short, Ralph is my "go to" guy on all matters of bankruptcy.
