Richard S. Ross
Richard S. Ross started practicing law in 1990 as an associate at Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt where he focused on bankruptcy and insolvency law. Most of that practice was dedicated to representing banks and other large institutional creditors. In 1995, Richard decided to quit the big law firm and start his own practice dedicated to helping real people and small businesses. From the beginning he was determined to make his practice different from the many other small bankruptcy firms in the area. Some of those firms had earned reputations as “bankruptcy mills” that did shoddy work and treated their clients like numbers. Some of those firms lacked the professionalism and expertise that Richard believed all people seeking legal solutions to debt problems deserved to have.
From 1995 until now, Richard has been helping thousands of people find the right solution to their debt challenges. Richard prides himself in his ability to find the best solution for each client whether that be bankruptcy or some other form of relief.
Because of his big firm beginnings, Richard is also qualified to take on larger and more complex cases than many of his counterparts. He is one of the few attorneys in the Vancouver area who has the experience and expertise to represent individuals and small businesses in Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Since he started his own practice, Richard has filed over 30 Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases for individuals and small businesses.
