I have practiced bankruptcy, civil and/or criminal law in Wisconsin, California and New York State. I am focusing on bankruptcy law because when a person or couple go through bankruptcy, I can in most cases, improve their financial circumstances by helping them get a "fresh start".
In our current economic crisis many of us have seen our balance sheet go from "manageable" to "disaster" sometimes quickly, due to a variety of reasons including divorce, unexpected medical bills, overextended credit card debt, foreclosure or loss of a job.
I grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, graduating from Fond du Lac High School (formerly Goodrich High School). I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a B.A. in History and Economics. I studied law at Antioch School of Law, which has become David A Clarke School of Law in Washington, D.C.
FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION WITH ATTORNEY SCOTT D. RODMAN
In your initial consultation, we can help you to understand the difference between Chapter 7 (usually referred to as "liquidation") and Chapter 13 (usually referred to as a "payment plan"). If you own real property, we can clearly explain your options for keeping or abandoning it and the relative benefits of each. Bankruptcy is a relatively straight forward process, but it is made up of many laws/guidelines and legal precedents. As a bankruptcy attorney, I can apply the legal requirements to your personal circumstances and suggest the appropriate course of action for you. You may even find out that bankruptcy is not appropriate for you. Nevertheless, I think your time will be well spent.
We look forward to talking with you.
