Obtaining debt relief is no longer a matter of simply filing for bankruptcy. Since October 2005, requirements have been established under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA). One of these requirements is an evaluation to determine eligibility known as the means test.

The means test workup, also known as a "comprehensive bankruptcy evaluation" is an analytical evaluation your attorney completes to determine whether you can file for Chapter 7 or for Chapter 13 personal bankruptcy. You provide verifiable details for all of your income and expenses. Your lawyer painstakingly verifies the information, performs precise calculations and compares the results against government-set averages. The results determine whether you are eligible to file for consumer bankruptcy and, if so, which chapter.

His ability and experience is recognized by his colleagues, and they frequently refer "tough cases" to him.
