The list above is but a few of the more common issues that arise in consumer bankruptcy cases. It takes time for a lawyer to gain experience in the multiple issues that can arise. Mr.Zimmerman has the experience that was gained from dealing with many diverse issues and he was actively practicing bankruptcy law in October of 2005 when sweeping changes were made to the US Bankruptcy Code. Consequently, Mr. Zimmerman has been practicing bankruptcy under BAPCPA (revised bankruptcy code) for as long as the BAPCPA has been law. The economy has been slow for a few years now, which has caused other lawyers to enter the bankruptcy practice. However, many lack the experience that only comes with time. Mr. Zimmerman offers services below market value, allowing clients to receive the benefit of an experienced attorney while paying less then the new-to-bankruptcy lawyers. It has come to our attention that some of the lawyers are sending their prospective clients home with excessive forms to fill out and then having a paralegal or secretary convert the information into bankruptcy format. Mr. Zimmerman's experience has led to using his own staff to do the work rather than making the client prepare their own bankruptcy.
