From your first meeting at Robinson & Henry when you sit down with me to discuss your issues, I offer a personalized approach to your bankruptcy. One of the things I pride myself on is being able to have a relationship with each individual client and provide wonderful customer service from the very first time we sit down to when your case ends.
Liz German is a Partner at Robinson & Henry and leads the firm’s Bankruptcy practice. She also handles probate and elder law matters, such as probate litigation and administration as well as conservatorships and guardianships.
Liz’s Bankruptcy Practice
Liz helps individuals and small businesses find debt relief through the appropriate bankruptcy, whether it is Chapter 7, 13, or 11 bankruptcy.
No two bankruptcy cases are alike, but an essential element for a successful filing is an attorney who has exceptional attention to detail. And sometimes, a bankruptcy matter calls for an aggressive litigator. Clients will find both of these qualities in Liz.
Having litigated matters in federal and state courts, Liz is comfortable advocating on behalf of clients in the courtroom. She has extensive experience in consumer rights protection and has successfully protected the rights of her clients against their creditors in adversary cases.
Liz has also defended clients against foreclosure actions and gone after creditors who have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Liz’s Elder Law & Probate Practice
Elder and probate law are two very sensitive practice areas that call for an attorney who is compassionate and pragmatic. These practice areas require a caring attorney who will take the time to get to know the client and their unique circumstances so they can devise a beneficial legal approach.
In addition to helping clients with common elder law issues such as long-term care planning and Medicaid pre-planning, Liz also represents clients in probate litigation. She also handles conservatorships and guardianships for vulnerable individuals.
