Why Choose A Board Certified Bankruptcy Attorney?

You Expect Board Certification from your Doctor – Expect it From Your Lawyer too.

We recommend you hire a Board Certified Bankruptcy Attorney, hiring a lawyer with expertise in any specialized field of law can be bewildering. However as a client, you want to be sure your lawyer is experienced in the bankruptcy field of law. 

Unfortunately, prospective clients usually have little objective criteria to rely upon. However, one objective criterion is whether a lawyer is a Board Certified lawyer in the specialized field of bankruptcy.

I specialize in only bankruptcy law, with over 28 years of proven results for my clients and I am Board Certified in Consumer Bankruptcy Law by the American Board of Certification:  https://www.abcworld.org/ .

Only 1 other lawyer in Northern New Jersey is a Certified Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyer.
