David J. Hutchinson: Attorney with David J. Hutchinson


I was a litigator in a firm for 15 years, so I know and am comfortable with fighting in Court when necessary. I have been a sole general practitioner for 20 years, working mostly with small businesses and individuals, so I understand the needs of these people and entities. I pride myself on treating each client as an individual; your situation is unique and will be treated as such. I want to understand your situation. If I am not the right guy to handle it, I probably know someone who is right, and I will get you to them. I have been appointed by the United States Trustee's office as a Case Trustee in Chapter 12 bankruptcies for over 25 years. They trust me; you can, too.

Order of the Coif. Instructor, Legal Research and Writing, Wayne State University, 1976-1978. Law Clerk to Hon. Charles W. Joiner, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, 1978-1980. Member, Consumer Bankruptcy Association; Chapter 12 Bankruptcy Trustee, 1987—. Life Member, Sixth Circuit Judicial Conference.

Everything did go pretty much as planned. After the bankruptcy he has been very slow in providing clearance documentation to my mortgage company so I can get a modification which has been frustrating. All in all ok Read less
