This morning our distribution payment was received. I know how important your collaboration has been and I need to thank you very much for your help. We are a small family owned company and I don't know what would have happened without your help. With this payment we can look at the future in a more optimistic way.
- President & CEO of aeronautical parts producer



(We) settled today at mediation... Our side is very pleased with the terms of the resolution. (We) appreciate your help on this matter and believe the fact that you were working on our side - and opposing counsel knew and respected your abilities - was a factor in reaching the resolution.
- Attorney, Texas-based commercial litigation firm



The professionalism, commitment to detail and 24/7 approach demonstrated consistently by the Lain, Faulkner team helped solidify a victory for our client.
- Lead commercial litigation attorney



I wanted to express my appreciation for the efforts made by LainFaulkner in this chapter 11 case. All parties acknowledged that with proper cash management procedures, this could be a successful business. With your firm’s intervention, the trust was able to confirm a feasible plan. Without your firm’s intervention, this would have been a chapter 7.
- United States Trustee



LainFaulkner is my first choice as a trustee. They get to the heart of things fast, plan well, and then push hard for resolution and closure.
- Bankruptcy attorney



If you want to know, this splatter [graph] tells a lot to me … this chart I find fairly compelling …
- U.S. bankruptcy judge



I hire LainFaulkner because they do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it, at a reasonable price.
- Trustee, claims, preference and forensic services



I'm pleased with the results...for the cost and result...obtained in this one, this one hits it out of the park...I would be delighted to see this firm being used in other cases.
- U.S. bankruptcy judge



We have worked with LainFaulkner on many cases ...and they've always...given good value
- Bankruptcy attorney



From the Court's perspective, this is a textbook case illustrating how schedules and statements of financial affairs should be prepared.
- U.S. bankruptcy judge



The court has not detailed here the data from which Mr. French derived his numbers. Suffice it to say that his research was extensive and well-planned. The court is satisfied that his opinions are defensible under the most rigorous Daubert analysis.
- U. S. bankruptcy judge



They are great to work with and have this [claims resolution and preference analysis] down to a science. When all was said and done, the Trustee ended up with approximately a 50% distribution rate for unsecured creditors – much better than predicted early on in the case.”
- Attorney, user of claims and preference services
