Representative Experience

  • Successfully helped defend clients seeking a fresh start in bankruptcy when the county objected to the discharge of “Pay to Stay” fees imposed following incarceration (In re Milan). In a precedent-setting decision, the 8th Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel affirmed the firm’s victory in lower court, deciding that these fees were more like hotel bills rather than criminal sanctions, thus creating new law in the state and the 8th Circuit.
