Board Certified Lawyers
Does it matter if my attorney is Board Certified?
Yes it does matter! Our firm’s founding attorney, Julie O’Bryan is one of Kentucky’s leading consumer bankruptcy attorneys and one of ONLY five attorneys in Kentucky certified in Consumer Bankruptcy by the American Board of Certification. Many lawyers handle run of the mill bankruptcy cases. Only a few, like Julie, go on to receive Board Certification in Consumer Bankruptcy by this prestigious nationally recognized organization. Julie was certified in 2002 and has maintained her certification over the last ten years.
To be certified, an attorney must concentrate at least 75 percent of his or her practice to Bankruptcy law. Julie concentrates 100% of her practice to handling bankruptcy cases filing almost 100 cases a month. Additionally, she has had to litigate over 20 contested bankruptcy matters to earn her certification and taken over 60 hours of continuing legal education courses every three years. Finally, Julie passed a two day exam covering all areas of Bankruptcy.
