  4. Amy,
    Why are you never in your office, and your receptionist never takes messages?
    Obviously I’m switching attornies, and will no longer be coming to your office, but just wanted to make a point of notifying you of why you’re losing my business, because it’s a waste of time to try to contact you at your office.
    happy new year. (obviously you’re celebrating plenty, with all the time you’re not spending working)

    • Sorry Stanley, you shouldn’t try to fool an attorney who specializes in FRAUD cases. It took me about 2 minutes to figure out who you are and it is not a client. See, I checked your IP address and you work at a sales company that calls me weekly.

      I tell my receptionists not to pass through any sales calls regarding bankruptcy products, because I quit doing bankruptcy law three years ago so figured I would not waste your time. Clearly, though, you have extra time.

      Hope you enjoyed this old blog. A new one will be up shortly at http://www.amykleinpeter.com
