Aloha and Welcome,
I have been a Hawaii Consumer Bankruptcy attorney since 1995. Before representing debtors in bankruptcy, that I was exposed to bankruptcy by representing creditors as a Honolulu bankruptcy attorney. I quickly saw that the way to really make a difference (which was why I went to law school in the first place) was to assist the honest but unfortunate debtor to gain a fresh start. So, I became a Hawaii Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney. I have never regretted the decision. Jean Christensen who works with me on every case is also a consumer Bankruptcy lawyer who has been practicing bankruptcy law for six years, two of which were as the “elbow” law clerk to the Honorable Robert J Faris. Jean also received the CALI Excellence for the Future Awards in Debtor Creditor Law, Secured Transactions, Negotiable Instruments, Admiralty Law and Second Year Seminar, for the highest grade in each of those classes, and also the Hawaii State Bar Association, Bankruptcy Law Section, Gregory Conlan Memorial Prize for Achievement in the Study of Bankruptcy law.
Over the years since then we have successfully assisted thousands of Hawaii individuals and families to overcome their financial difficulties and gain a fresh start. Working together directly with me and Jean Christensen my clients have completely eliminated or limited their debts, stopped harassing creditor calls at home and work, stopped garnishments, foreclosures and repossessions . We have helped my clients to regain a sense that they could live eliminate debt and make a good life for themselves and their families. To that end, I, and Jean, have been privileged as a Honolulu bankruptcy attorneys to help Hawaii consumers in ways which allow them to legally keep the things which matter most to them: their homes, their vehicles, their retirement savings and their possessions while relieving them of debts.
Our philosophy of Hawaii bankruptcy practice is that you are having enough trouble making ends meet and dealing with your creditors, so, we want to make the process as clear and as painless as it can be while maximizing your relief. That is why when we sit down together and prepare your bankruptcy papers together and I explain every aspect of the case to you directly- no middlemen- no confusion. You are in the driver‚ seat- we work for you and with you.
Bankruptcy is a choice that people would rather not have to make. However, it is a fully legal way in which to get a “fresh start” free from the crushing debt that so many are facing. If you want to speak directly with me about what we can do together to help you and your family please feel free to contact me for a free consultation.
