- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have been offering our most successful payment program for the past year and we will be continuing forward with it for the indefinite future. We call the program "file now pay later" and it is essentially a zero down plan, where you make monthly payments for up to 12 months. Especially helpful if you are already being garnished for 25% of your take home pay. This plan covers both the attorney's fees for document preparation and filing petition, and the appearance of attorney at the 341 hearing. (Meeting of creditors). All you need to qualify is a job and a bank account. If you have those two things and you need to file bankruptcy right now call us today.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Now due to the COVID-19 pandemic I am meeting clients by telephone and email messaging. I have been doing this successfully for 8 months now and have had many cases discharged and Chapter 13 plans confirmed literally without meeting face to face. I have found that meeting face to face is really unnecessary and I think right now people prefer not to meet face to face. In addition, right now all hearings are held by telephone or by Zoom meetings so you can file and be home throughout the process. New but kind of nice for the time being. (I'm not complaining). Saves us both a trip downtown to meet directly with the Trustees. This is especially nice for client's in outlying areas like Vernal, Duchesne, Brigham City, Price and St. George (you get the picture).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was born and raised in SLC, but attended law school in California. I earned my Juris Doctor at McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific in Sacramento, California in 1995, and then returned to Salt Lake City and I have been practicing law, including bankruptcy ever since. I am a member of the California, Utah and Colorado Bar State Bars (although I am currently inactive in California and Colorado as I don't practice law in those states presently). I went in to bankruptcy because one of my favorite electives in law school was bankruptcy law. When I started my law practice it just made sense to focus on bankruptcy. I don't think everyone appreciates how great it is that we have bankruptcy relief available. Many years ago not paying your debt would land you in debtor's prison.
