Favorite part of helping clients with bankruptcy

For me, the best part is when I tell a client we will stop the foreclosure on their home and they say “so I can breathe now?” or “so I can sleep peacefully now?” and I respond “absolutely, we’ve got it from here!” In my experience, that relief is so emotional for the client that it really makes me feel good.

Other Interests and Information

As far as my personal interest and hobbies, I love spending time with my son and husband, I love my girl trips with my college friends (we’re still close after 24 years of friendship) and I am overjoyed when my mom comes from New York to visit! Oh! And online shopping is always fun for me too.

Favorite part of helping clients with bankruptcy

My favorite part is seeing a client’s sense of relief when they realize that we are going to be able to help them. Often, clients are under tremendous anxiety before coming into our office and I love being able to explain both the relief available and that they are not alone in their situation.
