TESTIMONIALS

  • "Erich is one of our 'go to' creditors' rights attorneys.  He provides no-nonsense, cost effective legal counsel with exceptional service."

  • “Larry’s knowledge of the bankruptcy code is as good as I’ve seen in my years working with Chapter 11 cases and financially distressed companies. He also brings a practical side in resolving issues with various creditor groups. This ability to address various groups the strong and weak points in a non-confrontational manner avoids undue delay and costly litigation in many cases. However, when confrontation is unavoidable, Larry is quite the fine trial lawyer as well.”

He was responsive to our needs and tolerant of adjustments we requested throughout the development of our operating agreement. We’re probably one of Scott’s smallest clients, but he offered our startup his full attention and consideration as if we were one of his largest. We’re grateful for his help.”
