New Attorney at Lacy Katzen LLP
Online PR News – 16-March-2010 – – Lacy Katzen LLP is happy to announce that Robin Folts has come back to our law firm, but this time as an Attorney. Robin received her Juris Doctor degree at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan and graduated Cum Laude in May 2009. Robin is joining the estate and trust department focusing on elder care matters as well as the creditors’ rights department focusing on lender recovery of both commercial and consumer obligations.
Robin’s story is an interesting one. She started at Lacy Katzen LLP as a legal secretary for attorneys David MacKnight and Louis Ryen in the bankruptcy department in 1996. At that time her duties were to prepare and file motions and assist these attorneys with Chapter 11, 13, and 7 filings. Thereafter, she was employed by various law firms focusing on creditors’ rights issues and real estate. Robin ultimately worked for a buyer of commercial debt where she broadened her skills in complex lender work-outs. While working there, Robin traveled extensively to work out large commercial debts including selling real estate owned assets and other collateral located in the continental United States, in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Robin rejoined Lacy Katzen in 2003 as a paralegal in the estate and trust department and briefly assisted the litigation department. At that time Robin attended Medicaid interviews, worked very closely with clients to assist them in accomplishing their estate planning goals, prepared gift tax returns for the firms’ clients, and worked closely with medical malpractice clients until she departed for law school in April of 2006.
Robin commented: “All through law school my main goal was to return to Lacy Katzen in the capacity of an attorney. I’m very happy to be back with the Firm and sincerely appreciate having this opportunity. I plan on making the most of it. ”
Our clients have come to know and respect Robin for her tenacity, hard work, and compassion. Robin desires to provide the elderly community with knowledge and skill to formulate strategies that meet their individual economic goals, and also to listen and facilitate their desires with respect to long-term personal care. She also wants to continually create mechanisms for lender recovery of debtor obligations.
Lacy Katzen LLP is excited to have her back and welcomes Robin in her new role.
