WHY I ENJOY PRACTICING BANKRUPTCY LAW
Andrew C. Walker enjoys practicing bankruptcy law; it is one of the few areas where a lawyer genuinely helps his clients live a better life.
When clients come to the office for the first time they are worried about how they are going to pay their bills and keep a roof overhead.
Oftentimes they have been missing sleep and feeling stressed for years.
When explaining to them how bankruptcy works, Andrew Walker gets the satisfaction of seeing the stress lift from their shoulders.
Most of them say that they had no idea bankruptcy was so powerful.
Seeing people get that sense of relief is satisfying on both a personal level and a professional level.
Andrew C. Walker’s favorite cases are those where he can help someone put behind them a life of financial uncertainty, where they do not have control of their future paychecks.
He enjoys watching the moment when a client who has just finished their bankruptcy realizes that their next financial decisions will be about positive things.
They can begin to think about the best way to help their children through college, or what kind of neighborhood they should buy their first house in.
No longer do they have to worry about where they will get the money for the next debt payment.
BEFORE LAW SCHOOL
Prior to entering law school, Andrew C. Walker studied Political Science, Legal Studies, and Spanish at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
After finishing his undergraduate studies, he joined the Peace Corps for two years of volunteer service in Albania.
While there, he taught English and writing to high school and university students, and helped them write grant proposals for international development projects.
This experience made him thankful for the well-developed and transparent legal system of the United States.
