“I became a lawyer because I wanted to help regular, ordinary folks with the kinds of problems you might think shouldn’t require a lawyer, but, in today’s complex world, most certainly do require a lawyer. Family law and bankruptcy are at the top of that list. Most of the concepts are really pretty simple, but putting the law into practice is about as complicated as it gets.”
