About Me

After nine years as a Staff Attorney for the Seattle Chapter 13 Trustee, I decided it was time to get back to what  I love -  representing individuals and business facing tough economic times.  It is a tough emotional decision when deciding to file for bankruptcy.  My goal is to provide first class representation, with a personal touch, helping my clients emerge from these tough times with new found vigor and optimism.  My practice is not a mill and my clients know that all phases of their case are being overseen directly by me.


If you are considering filing for bankruptcy in the greater Seattle area, I hope you consider giving me a call.

  • Richard K. Hart

    Sten is a real insider in the bankruptcy law community and knows how to protect his clients in both simple and tough and complex matters. He definitely stands way above the many "hackers" in bankruptcy practice who have sprung up in this economy. We refer cases to him with great confidence.
