What do you like about this subject?

I love to see the expression on a client's face when I explain how immediate relief from debt misery is possible for that person.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope that public awareness of consumer legal rights will continue to grow. Allexperts is helping to do that. I love participating in the Allexperts platform. Allexperts allows people to receive expert consumer bankruptcy advice completely for free. I think it's great to be part of this. It brings me enormous personal satisfaction.

Did you know you might be able to hire a great bankruptcy lawyer for half the usual cost? See,
