Who are we?


John LaRue and Corinne Erwin are each admitted and practice law in the Northern and Southern District Federal Bankruptcy Courts in Indiana and collectively have filed thousands of bankruptcy cases. Aside from earning their respective law degrees and being admitted to practice in Indiana, each is a graduate of the Advanced Bankruptcy Bootcamp of renowned bankruptcy attorney O. Max Gardner. This program provides unique training not only in bankruptcy practice, but also prosecution of abusive and unlawful practices of creditors and collection agencies. We have successfully prosecuted such cases and returned thousands of dollars in awards to our clients. When you need protection from aggressive bill collectors, the Internal Revenue Service, mortgage foreclosure, repossessions, or wage garnishment we can help.
