Helping Shaping the Law

Early in his law school career, Mark discovered that he was a natural in bankruptcy law and had a strong passion for this area of the law.  While clerking for a bankruptcy law firm, in 1999, he wrote an appellate brief arguing for a change in the existing law.  The appeal won and the decision was of such legal importance it was published and helped shape the law in the “Southern District of California.”  The important decision, which is published as Apex v. Blanchard (In re Blanchard) (1999), established a new legal precedence that is commonly cited in legal treatises used by attorneys.  The decision holds that a creditor cannot extend the deadline for filing a complaint to revoke a discharge, even if there has been a concealment of assets.  Mark then went on to become an accomplished San Diego bankruptcy attorney who has a reputation for fighting hard for his clients’ rights and helped several hundreds of his clients file successful cases.

Making a Difference

After becoming lawyer and being admitted to the State Bar of California, Mark served as an associate attorney for the Law Firm of Purdy & Brehme, where as an attorney he represented individuals, small businesses, and large business, as well as a Fortune 500 company.  Working at that law firm, he honed his skills as an attorney and amassed an impressive string of victories in bankruptcy cases and contested adversary proceedings.  But representing big companies did not give him the satisfaction he needed.  Mark wanted something more; he wanted to make a difference and he wanted to help people.

He named the firm Bankruptcy Legal Center to reflect the passion and focus of the practice which is to help ordinary people who are suffering from too much debt or other financial problems.  The firm exclusively represents borrowers and homeowners.  We never represent lenders.  The firm’s prior experience representing lenders and a Fortune 500 company gives us a unique insight into how your lender thinks, helping us to better protect your legal rights in court proceedings.
