Heather Culped Named to Leaders in the Law

Welcome to Essex Richards’ Bankruptcy Blog

Welcome to the first blog post from the bankruptcy group at Essex Richards.

I often think about what my clients have been through before they make the decision to give me a call.  They have likely been putting off calling for months, sometimes years, so I know taking that step is trying.  I also know that most of my clients have done a lot of research online before taking that step – sometimes bringing more confusion, sometimes feelings of helplessness, sometimes misdirection.

That is one of the reasons we are writing this blog – to offer useful information for consumers – our current and future clients, their family members and support networks, and anyone searching for information about what can be a very frightening time in one’s life.

Our team will cover answers to a wide range of questions our clients have, as well as discussion on a variety of topics including: bankruptcy, adversary proceedings, settlements, asset planning and protection, receiverships, and other topics related to debt, credit, and money owed. We also represent creditors owed money, but that is a minority of our practice, so there will be fewer posts from the creditor side.  From all sides, though, our goal is to speak in plain English – breaking these topics down to be more easily understood.

Our primary blog contributors will be Cindy Baker, Bankruptcy Paralegal, and myself, Heather Culp.  We will also invite guests to contribute to our blog from the wide network of professionals we work with – financial planners, accountants, therapists, and others involved in debt, credit, and bankruptcy.

Cindy Baker has been a paralegal for over 40 years, mainly in the area of bankruptcy law, and I have been practicing law in this field for over 20 years.

Whether you found us by looking for information for yourself, a friend, or family member, we hope that you find our blog to be a useful resource.  We also encourage you to reach out if you need legal guidance in this area.  We are here to help.
