Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Without getting into confidential details, we have been successful in putting forth the voice that people hired us to be for them. We have had cases where we have successfully brought children back to the State of Colorado after one parent or the other removed the children from the state without permission and we have had cases where we were able to catch people hiding assets that ultimately meant our client was able to recover more through their divorce where they otherwise would not have been able to do so.

How did you build a successful practice?
A successful practice is built through staying in touch with our clients, constantly working on their cases and having the trial skills necessary to advance our client's rights and voices through the divorce or custody process. Additionally, we are thorough and ethical and that makes a big difference.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for someone who they can trust and who they are comfortable with. More importantly, clients should look for someone who will be realistic with expectations as well.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is very important as certain decisions within cases vary from one judicial district to the next. At Goldman Law, LLC, we practice in a variety of different jurisdictions and we have become accustomed to different outcomes for various scenarios throughout Colorado.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We provide a lot of information. However, in person consultations are preferred. We will talk to someone over the phone if it is an absolute necessity.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
In a free consultation, you need to know the direction of a case and what needs to be done to get your case on track. Additionally, we will need to know all parties involved and what your goals are in the case.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
We are different from other lawyers and law firms because we pride ourselves on giving thorough, professional, and ethical representation. We have a lot of years of combined experience in our practice and we give every client the attention they deserve. Additionally, we are not afraid to fight in the courtroom for our client's rights.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Giving people the voice they need when they need it the most.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
My family, skiing, cooking, and music.

Are you involved in your community?
I am involved in the community as I sit on a couple non-profit organizational boards that are set up to help parents.

WHY DO PEOPLE FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY?
Law Office Of James C. Hord Charlotte, NC Why do people file for bankruptcy? This is a question that I am asked by my friends from time to time. After all, shouldn't people pay their debts and not cause harm to their creditors? In an ideal world, this would be an acceptable standard. But, unfortunately, this is not an ideal world. Recognizing that this is a credit based economy, people do get behind on their obligations, for various reasons. Some may have had a temporary lawoff from their job; some may incur unexpected medical expenses; some may have had a cut in pay; while others may have simply miscalculated their ability to repay their debts. Whatever the reason, our person may now find the wolf knocking on his or her door demanding money which they do not have. This could be an embarrassing, or harassing situation. After all, who likes to have creditors calling demanding money which they do not have? Who likes to have a sheriff bringing a summons to their door? Who likes to have a foreclosure action filed aganst their residence? The bankruptcy laws are designed to give you relief from this oppression. One of the most important benefits of bankruptcy is the "automatic stay." This means that the minute you file for bankruptcy, creditors will not be allowed to contact you any further. This means that all phone calls, collection letters, lawsuits, foreclosure actions, etc. will have to be put "on hold.' Creditors will now have to work through the court to sort things out. Chapter 13 or Chapter 7? The two basic types of bankruptcy for individuals is Chapter 13 and Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a reorganization of your finances; and, Chapter 7 is a liquidation. Which chapter should I file? Most people file Chapter 13 when they have property to save, or cannot pass the means test. Maybe their residence is in foreclosure, or they have certain debts which they cannot discharge (taxes, for example). They can repay these debts through Chapter 13, and not lose their property. Chapter 7, however is a liquidation. Maybe our debtor is out of work and cannot devise a repayment plan. Maybe their business has failed, and they are stuck with massive debts. Whatever the reason, Chapter 7 appears to be the best option available to meet their needs. Whether to file Chapter 13 or Chapter 7? This is best determined by consultation with a bankruptcy attorney. The attorney will review your financial situation, budget, debts, property, and recommend the best option to suit your needs. You should not try to do this on your own, since bankruptcy is very complex and there are many pitfalls to making mistakes. The Means Test This is a determination of your eligibility to file a Chapter 7 case. Basically, if you have an income above a certain threshhold, you will not be qualified to file a Chapter 7 case. You will have to file Chaptder 13, and pay your creditors some portion of your debts. Congress has decided that high income debtors should not be allowed to "stiff" their creditors, if they have some ability to repay their debts. Your attorney will discuss the means test issues with you during your consultation. Discharge This is the goal in most bankruptcy proceedings. You want to have your debts declared "null and void," and creditors permanently enjoined from contacting you. As you may be aware, when our nation was founded, there were "debtor's prisons." If you could not pay your debts, you were sent away to prison, until you paid them. This generally resulted in "life sentences," since how could you earn money to pay your debts while locked up? Congress passed the bankruptcy laws in order to alleviate this situation. They recognized that some people get in "over their heads" and need relief. Thus, the concept of "discharge" was born. This means that you are relieved of your debts, and given a "fresh start" to get on with your life. Bankruptcy has both its benefits, and detriments. Obviously, your credit is going to be damaged for a period of time. But, if you think the benefits outweigh the detriments, then you need to consult with an attorney to explore your options.

Student Loan Counseling: Why Isn’t It Effective?
If you are a student loan borrower and worried about delinquencies or a default—on a student loan or any other debt—consult with Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC regarding your options.
Child Custody in Colorado
Often, parents will share joint legal custody (mutual decision-making authority) and work out a specific “parenting plan” (an agreed-upon schedule of time the child will spend with each parent) that best suits their child’s circumstances.
