That Person I Talked To ( The Trustees)

Just who are the Bankruptcy Trustees? Regardless of whether you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you’ll have a trustee intimately involved in your case. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy trustees are appointed by United States’ Trustees. While United States’ Trustees are government employees, Chapter 7 and 13 trustees are usually attorneys […]


I just got an email from other attorney all pissed off at me because two clients did not bring their social security cards to their 341 hearing.

Wolfram & Hart, Attorneys at Law

Today I wore my Wolfram & Hart, Attorneys at Law t-shirt to work today.  I knew it would be a day with no client’s coming into the office, so Boss is cool with jeans and t-shirts on those days. If you don’t know what Wolfram & Hart is, you are not a geek and obviously […]

Actual Email I Got to Send to a Client

Today is a happy day for me.  This week I have had two different clients who have been an absolute nightmare to deal with. Today I got a phone call bitching me out because they did not get a call back from Boss nor did they get an update phone call from me when Boss […]
