    With years of solid bankruptcy law experience behind him, one look at his web site's material and information, along with his published Avvo answers to consumer questions, and it should be obvious to you that attorney Tamm knows the law and cares about helping people with their financial problems. If you have a question about debt or bankruptcy law, he is your answer. If his office is anywhere near you, I recommend him to you.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Private reproval, public disclosure
    issued in CA, 1996


    Private reproval, public disclosure means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Bradley’s comment: “In 1993 I was wrong, and was appropriately disciplined in 1996. As evidence of rehabilitation, from 2006-2012 I served on the Disciplinary Board of the Hawaii Supreme Court, the last four years as Board Secretary.”
