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.

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.

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

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

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.”
