ABOUT THIS BLOG.
Hi there. My name is Robert S. Brandt and I am a bankruptcy attorney with offices in Alexandria and Leesburg, Virginia. Allow me to highlight a few things about my blog:
- The purpose of this blog is to provide some general advice and guidance about the bankruptcy process in Northern Virginia. While it is true that bankruptcy law is dictated by federal law, each part of the country has its own little twist and turns and each jurisdiction does things a little differently. With that being the case, the focus of this blog will be on the state of affairs in Alexandria, Virginia which is where folks in Northern Virginia end up having to file their bankruptcy case.
- Hopefully you will find my blog to be useful and informative, but ultimately if you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy I strongly urge you to make an appointment with a bankruptcy lawyer in order to get legal advice about your particular situation. Most bankruptcy attorneys offer a free initial consultation.
- Finally, while I certainly would not compare bankruptcy work to “brain surgery,” believe me it is still “surgery.” And the phrase “the devil is in the details” is certainly most applicable to bankruptcy work. Point is: just because you read my blog, or any other bankruptcy blog for a couple of hours does not make you a surgeon. For most, filing for bankruptcy is a once in a lifetime event. Go see a professional please.
