Attorney Koury Hicks Obtains Bankruptcy Expert Certification

The Law Offices of John T. Orcutt are pleased to announce that attorney Koury Hicks has obtained his board certification in consumer bankruptcy law from the American Board of Certification. Hicks earned both his undergraduate and juris doctor degree from the University of New Mexico. He was admitted to the North Carolina bar in 2007 and is certified by the NC bar as a specialist in Consumer Bankruptcy.

Hicks’ latest certification strengthens his ability to serve our clients. To best protect the rights of consumers in bankruptcy, advanced skills are needed – over and above those that law school offers. Certified bankruptcy experts are those attorneys that have gone the extra mile to meet the rigorous standards of the American Board of Certification. To be certified by the board, the attorney must:

  • Complete extensive continuing education in bankruptcy law.
  • Practice bankruptcy law extensively.
  • Participate in a wide variety of bankruptcy cases, including contested litigation.
  • Undergo a stringent and in-depth examination on bankruptcy law and ethics.
  • Demonstrate an advanced level of skill in the area of bankruptcy law.

Just as you want to see a medical specialist rather than a general practitioner when you have a serious medical condition, you want a bankruptcy expert to handle your bankruptcy and ensure you get the most complete debt relief possible. In addition to his certifications, Koury Hicks is a recognized expert in the local bankruptcy bar. Some of his accomplishments and activities include:

  • Coauthor of the Means Testing chapter of the North Carolina Bankruptcy Practice Manual.
  • Regular speaker at the Annual Bankruptcy Institute Seminar.
  • Regular speaker at the Middle District of North Carolina Bankruptcy seminar.
  • Graduate of Max Gardner's Bankruptcy Boot Camp.
  • Volunteer with the Legal Aid of North Carolina and the North Carolina Bar Association's Attorneys on Call initiative.
  • Member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.

Benefits of using a certified bankruptcy expert:

By choosing an attorney with a board certification in consumer bankruptcy law, you get expert advice over and above that of a general attorney. By opting for a certified bankruptcy attorney, you know that your attorney will be:

  • Knowledgeable about the current status of bankruptcy law and recent case developments.
  • Able to handle the most complicated of bankruptcy cases.
  • Experienced in bankruptcy litigation and contested matters.
  • Subjected to intense peer review to ensure integrity and the highest standards.
  • Incredibly competent because of their focus on a specialized area of the law.
  • In possession of superior expertise in consumer bankruptcy law.

In addition to seeking a certified bankruptcy expert, you want a highly rated attorney. Koury Hicks is rated excellent by Avvo, an independent attorney rating service. If you are deep in debt that you can't pay, are living paycheck to paycheck and are looking for a meaningful solution to get your finances back on track, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a good solution for you.
