Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Mohammed Omar Badwan

    I strongly endorse this lawyer. Ms. Bach is an extremely knowledgeable attorney with extensive experience in bankruptcy law. She is a tireless advocate for her clients and her legal knowledge and communication skills separate her from the rest of her field.

  • Ahmad Tayseer Sulaiman

    I have had the pleasure to work with Mrs. Bach on a number of complex matters and her defining traits are that she is patient, even handed and eerily knowledgeable of even the most obscure parts of federal statutes and case law. She is the embodiment of Dedication, Innovation, Compassion and Excellence. She is utterly devoted to both her family and her clients. For these reasons I hope to continue to work with Mrs. Bach and learn from her. I enthusiastically endorse this fine Consumer Rights Attorney.
