Having been a Solicitor for over 30 years, I developed a passion for assisting people in serious financial difficulties and 15 years ago I set up a niche department to deal solely with bankruptcies, in particular protecting bankruptcy assets predominately the family home.
My role is extremely varied and is not your typical nine till five job. My clients have access to me 24/7 (apart from the limited sleep I get!) and I have often been praised on my ability to not only support my clients but to truly understand the serious financial difficulties that they are facing coupled with the tremendous emotional distress that they are under.
My biggest strength is that I am a problem solver and will always find a solution to my client's financial problems and for me the best part of the job is when I telephone a client to advise that their bankruptcy has been annulled.
Aside from the client, my job entails liaising directly with the Official Receiver and any Insolvency Practitioner appointed together with creditors and we take care of all the paperwork on behalf of the client.
