- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Consumer bankruptcies typically proceed on a fixed fee basis. Business bankruptcies are usually handled on a retainer with hourly billing (for Chapter 11), although some business liquidation cases in Chapter 7 can be done on a fixed fee basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I interview prospective clients personally, whether it is over the phone, via video conference or in person at my office in downtown Tampa, or at satellite offices in Boca Raton, Orlando or Atlanta. In the course of a free one-hour consultation a clear picture emerges as to alternatives within bankruptcy (and outside of bankruptcy), as well as the costs and benefits of each alternative.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Undergraduate degree in Economics, Master's degree in Business and Law degree (JD) from The University of Wisconsin at Madison. Additional Training at Indiana University and Georgia Tech. Background as Financial Analyst (Fortune 50), Project Manager and Consultant in the consumer financial and data analytics sectors before beginning the practice of law.
