About me

I
am Linda Tirelli (formerly Linda Stavish) and I grew up in the most
wonderful community of Rockland County, New York in the hamlet of New
City.  I attended Clarkstown South High School and went on to graduate
from the State  University of New York at Albany where I dual majored
in Political Science and Criminal Justice.  I think I was destined (if
not programed) to go to law school and in 1995 I graduated from
Quinnipiac University School of Law in Hamden, Connecticut.


Today I am a private practice attorney committed to empowering the average consumer. 
I am admitted to practice in the Federal Bankruptcy Courts for both the District of Connecticut and the Southern District
of New York. I am also a proud member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) and
a student of the bankruptcy guru Attorney O. Max Gardner.

3rd, 2008 Attorney Linda M. Tirelli successfully completed an intensive
4 day course (or Boot Camp) concentrating in Mortgage Fraud actions,
Bankruptcy Discharge litigation, Credit Reporting violations and other
issues in assistance to consumers emerging from a bankruptcy case. Run
by the well-known O. Max Gardner in North Carolina, Attorney Tirelli
attended the Boot Camp with eight other consumer bankruptcy attorneys
from around the country.   

Attorney
Tirelli and her fellow trainees dissected 2000+ documents including
internal lender policies, SEC filings, learning the the bank lingo and
"secret" codes and hidden risks found in the securitization of home
mortgages, auto loans and common consumer credit card debts. Attorney
Tirelli left the training as a proud and integral part of an elite
national network of consumer bankruptcy attorneys armed with forms,
letters, pleadings, articles and slides that show Gardner's Bankruptcy
Litigation Model, which is designed to generate more economic benefits
for the consumer and the attorney.


Attorney
Tirelli and the other recruits also learn from Gardner's forensic
accounting system how to identify predatory lending by going through
real cases to understand codes, transaction histories and unlawful fees
and charges. Before the trainees are finished, legal assistants provide
"real time" demonstrations showing how Gardner's system operates with
"real life" cases.


Gardner tells BusinessWeek in
the article "Bankruptcy Boot Camp":
"My
goal is to train an army of attorneys to take the fight right to the
creditors and their Wall Street aiders and abettors. They wanted
reform, and we're going to give it to them."


Mr.
Gardner's Bankruptcy Boot Camp has been featured in Business Week and
was recently the subject of a CNN segment on the show "Open Home" along
with the director of the movie "Maxxed Out".



It
is an honor and a privilege to serve in the elite army of consumer
bankruptcy attorneys recruited and trained by O. Max Gardner to handle
the difficult matters which have caused incredible hardship to the
average consumer in todays world. 


 


 


 


 


 


Over
the years I have worn many hats both as an attorney in a variety of
specialties and in corporate America as an entrepreneur spearheading
the growth of a large health and fitness giant.  All the while, I knew someday I would leave
the corporate world to start a law firm specializing in Personal Bankruptcy. 


WHY DO I CHOOSE TO PRACTICE
BANKRUPTCY LAW?


This
is an easy answer!  I find Personal Bankruptcy to be the most rewarding area to practice as it is the one
area of law where the little guy CAN come out ahead and can feel like a winner.  I do not accept corporate
clients and remain committed to the people who need the most help.  Hardworking
people unable to make ends meet due to unforeseen consequences of
accepting lines of credit from predatory lenders, job loss in a
struggling economy or overwhelming medical bills brought on by the
health care crisis.   No matter what the reason, everyone
is entitled to a "do-over" and get a fresh start!


I
am a regular author of articles on the subject of Bankruptcy.  Feel
free to ask questions and inspire my next writing. My number one rule
is that my clients need to stop thinking like victims and start
rethinking their vantage point. Get ready to take back your life and
get some breathing room!   See my recent articles published
on EHow.com where my screen name is BankruptcyXpert.


When I am not wiping out consumer debts, empowering the masses,  I am a devoted mother of
2 truly remarkable teenagers.  My pride and joy as well as my inspiration to forge ahead and make a difference
– one client at a time.

    Having know Linda personally and professionally for over 30 years, I had recommended her to a dear friend for their Chapter 7 case in Connecticut. They were thrilled with her handling of the case, and I was proud to have her represent them. She is thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and a great advocate for her clients.
