Mike has been practicing law of 35 years, but each case is unique as the individual in need of assistance. Bankruptcy is a rewarding practice because it of the stress relief experienced by the clients and the new beginning that is provides to them.
The lives of clients are made much simpler and less stressful by the implementation of a well thought out Chapter 13 plan. The client is able to focus on what they value most and find a way to move beyond their current problems.
A few of our clients have been subject to illegal foreclosure proceedings and we recognize the need to protect the rights of our clients. While it is a complicated area of law, the actions of many of the large banks are so brazen that the fraudulence and deliberate failure to comply with state law is glaring and it is clear that they simply hope they can roll over those who can't afford attorneys.
We have not focused on mediation over the last year or so, but we are committed to the idea that conflicts can be resolved, marriage agreements can be settled without incurring tremendous legal fees which arise in an adversarial proceeding. When people can't agree it is generally only lawyers who win, we strive bring parties together or to help them to part ways as amicably as possible.
