Julie's the best!
We had a very complicated Chapter 11 proposal, despite being an extremely small firm. Julie was very helpful in assisting us to become familiar with and navigate the bankruptcy process. Our outcome was as desired and two years later we are still operating successfully under the terms of our agreement. Thanks Jules!
