After spending more than a decade working for an investment business advising high net worth clients, John “Erin” decided it was time to pursue his true passion. He always had an interest in the law, and often thought back to his first job out of college where he worked as a legal clerk for a large law firm. He made the decision to enroll in law school, and hasn’t looked back since.
Serving banks and credit unions of all sizes, financial companies, and car dealers, Erin works with credit managers, bankruptcy managers, and their team members to identify bankruptcy issues and implement cost-effective solutions. It is important for him to understand the nature of any problem before he recommends an appropriate course of action, so he makes a point to really hone in and patiently listen to his clients. As the bankruptcy process tends to be extremely complex and filled with language and terms that can be very confusing, he also takes the time to educate his clients along the way.
When one of Erin’s clients lost a key employee in their bankruptcy department, they struggled to bring their new hire up to speed. The new hire was overwhelmed and the accounts were quickly becoming backlogged, decreasing the likelihood of successful recovery. Erin was quick to jump to the rescue and offered to provide an in-person training to explain the bankruptcy process. By the end of the day, his client felt more confident after all of their questions had been answered, and was appreciative that Erin went the extra mile.
Erin was born in northern Kentucky and lived in South Florida, New Orleans, and Tulsa for a number of years before finally relocating back to the area. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, fly-fishing, trading stock options, and working on old German cars.
