Going to see your attorney should not be an embarrassing or painful process. The interaction should be pleasant, friendly and professional; that is what we strive for at Brian A. Hart Law Offices.
"I admit that you may not look forward to a meeting with your attorney if you are experiencing financial troubles and need bankruptcy advice, but we will try to alleviate your immediate concerns and make the visit as pleasurable as possible. This, along with our unique experience is what sets us apart from other law firms."
Brian Hart Law Offices focuses on one area of the law: bankruptcy. We do not split our time and energy trying to be the attorney equivalent of a jack of all trades. Bankruptcy is a specific and complicated area of law. You need an experienced attorney, not just any attorney that feels like doing a bankruptcy this week.
"During my bankruptcy practice since 1992 I have seen many firms and attorneys, both local and out of town, come and go out of practicing bankruptcy law in Winnebago County. As a lifelong resident of Rockford, I am here to stay. I have dedicated the last two decades to the study and practice of bankruptcy law in Rockford and the surrounding counties and have had my own practice since 2004." Brian Hart
