Why I am Thankful to be a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Arizona


As a bankruptcy lawyer in Arizona I have come accustomed to the idea that I am a necessary evil in people's lives. The last thing people want to do is file for bankruptcy. The last thing they want to do is meet with me. This might lead you to believe that my job is not that fulfilling. The opposite is true.

When people come in to my office they are often at what they consider a low point in their lives. They have lost jobs, lost income, dealing with familiy problems, and are usually in a situation they never would have imagined. They feel like failures and worst of all most have lost hope.

In a very real sense I can offer hope through the bankruptcy laws. Arizona has been hit particularly hard by this economic downturn. People are suffering and need hope that this difficult time will end - hope that there is a possibility that one day life will return to normal.

What brings me satisfaction as a bankruptcy lawyer? When I see a client come into my office completely stressed out, and then see them walk out an hour later with a total sense of relief. When I walk into a Meeting of Creditors with a client who didn't sleep the night before because they were so nervous, and then see them walk out smiling and say "you were right, it wasn't as bad as I thought."

Bankruptcy is not pleasant. It is not wanted. But it can give you hope that there is a way out of the very difficult circumstances you are now in.

Growing up I never imagined I would be a bankruptcy lawyer (I would have been a very weird kid if I did!). I thought I was going to be a policeman. While I didn't imagine doing this job, I am thankful that I have a career where I can truly make difference in people's lives.

I can help you. You can be debt free. Give me a call at (480) 420-4028 or shoot me an email at john@skibalaw.com. Happy Thanksgiving!
