Q1: What made you want to become a lawyer?
It’s something I always knew I wanted to do. I really liked just getting into what the laws are and going ahead and arguing against them or for them, just depending on the situation. I just like to see how it all works together. And of course helping people is a big part of what we do here, so that was also part of it.
Q2: At what point should I consider bankruptcy?
I would suggest considering bankruptcy whenever you’ve had some kind of major life change, such as you’ve lost your job or you have large medical bills, you have a large amount of credit card debt—something that makes you take a step back and look and say my expenses and bills are way over my income. When something like that happens, I would definitely suggest at least considering or talking to somebody about what your options are at that point.
Q3: What materials, if any, should I bring to my bankruptcy consultation?
If you can have your materials or at least know where they are. We give you a lot of guidance on where to find that information, but it’s always helpful if you can come in and have an idea of what it is you have for income and what it is you have for expenses. So organization or at least knowing where to get the information is a big thing I look for in how well it’s going to work.
