Working remotely with clients has surprisingly gone smooth and in my experience, the vast majority of clients seem to prefer it.

Practicing in the area of Bankruptcy Law brings to it many unique challenges. Bankruptcy can be totally foreign to the person who has never suffered a loss of job, spouse or health. With the pandemic, many people are finding themselves in a position they never dreamed of. Here where working with clients over the phone can be a plus. Walking into a law firm or solo practitioner’s office can feel intimidating. Many clients have never had the need to visit a lawyer, so just the feeling of the unknown coupled with the financial stress can be a lot to handle. I have found that clients tend to be more comfortable discussing their hardships while they are in the comfort of their home.
