What is it like to run a solo bankruptcy practice with a large family?

Well, it’s awesome.  I control my hours, I have time for my family, and I have a one-on-one relationship with each of my clients.  Having a hard-working, supportive wife makes all the difference in the world.

However, it also means that I sometimes keep odd hours, even at odd places.  For instance, today is New Year’s Eve.  I am in a hospital room with my lovely wife and our newborn son.  They are asleep, and I am working on my laptop on a bankruptcy petition for some clients who are in a real bind.  I don’t mind, and careful planning and a very understanding wife make the solo practice/family lifestyle possible.

And, of course, here is a picture of the bouncing baby boy (with no picture of Mom, because I didn’t dare wake her to ask her permission).  window3 dad with baby


Have a Happy New Year.  I know that I will.
