WALTER METZEN IS ONE OF ONLY A HANDFUL OF BOARD CERTIFIED CONSUMER BANKRUPTCY LAWYERS IN MICHIGAN

Bankruptcy in Michigan is a difficult and demanding process. Often, when bankruptcy becomes necessary, it is the result of some unforeseen event or external circumstance beyond an individual's or married couple's control. Bankruptcy is not a “quick fix” and can involve some very complicated areas of law. For the most part, federal law governs bankruptcy in the United States, although several states have peculiarities unique to those states. Because bankruptcy law is mostly federal, the American Board of Certification was created to develop an examination and a set of standards that can be used nationwide to measure an attorney’s competence in bankruptcy law. Some states have laws that prevent an attorney from advertising legal specialties and Michigan is one of them. Only Board Certified Bankruptcy Specialists may advertise themselves as professionals.

Ask if your attorney is a Michigan Certified Consumer Bankruptcy Specialist by the American Board of Certification.

If you are interested in obtaining the names of certified consumer or business bankruptcy specialists in your area, or in obtaining a free directory of certified specialists, please contact the American Board of Certification.

You expect certification from your doctor - expect it from your lawyer too.

Board Certification means that the certified attorney has met rigorous, objective standards and has demonstrated knowledge in bankruptcy and/or creditors' rights law. Hiring an attorney with expertise in any specialized field of law can be a bewildering experience. As a client, you want to make sure your counsel is experienced in the particular field. Unfortunately, prospective clients usually have little objective criteria on which to rely.

The American Board of Certification's (ABC) programs are designed to identify and recognize those attorneys in consumer or business bankruptcy who have met or exceeded rigorous certification standards relating to experience, continuing legal education, integrity, and peer review; in addition to demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of the law in their specialty area.

The goal of ABC is to provide meaningful information to those seeking legal services to enable them to make informed decisions in selecting experienced counsel.

To become certified as a bankruptcy specialist by ABC, an applicant must successfully complete a comprehensive day-long written examination covering (1) general bankruptcy/creditors' rights law (2) legal ethics, and (3) substantive questions in the specialty area. In addition, each applicant must show significant experience in legal matters and a substantial dedication of their practice to such matters, as well as providing professional references and participating in at least 60 hours of continuing legal education over a three-year period.
