Ginny is as good as it gets when it comes to bankruptcy law in the State of New Jersey. She is well known by her colleagues and the court for her zealous representation, professionalism and expertise in the area of bankruptcy law. I have referred many people to her over the years and they have all praised her compassion, attention to detail and understanding of complex bankruptcy matters. Ginny's knowledge in the areas of foreclosure and mortgage modification make her an invaluable asset to her clients. I highly recommend Ginny to anyone facing the difficult decision to file for bankrputcy.
