Krystal M. Ahart is a partner at Kahn & Ahart, PLLC, dba Bankruptcy Legal Center™. She focuses her practice on assisting individuals and businesses through the bankruptcy process in Chapters 7, 11, and 13. She first began working with her law Partner in 2002, when she was hired as a receptionist for the law firm of James F.
