Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law

As one of three members of the Unsecured Creditors Committee in the Icon Eyewear case I voted to select Riker Danzig based on the effective presentation made to us by Joseph Schwartz. Throughout the case Mr. Schwartz and his team kept us updated in a very timely manner. They didn't just throw legal terminology at us, they explained it and interpreted how opposing counsel and or the court would most likely respond. They were quick to explain positions and how the rule of law applied to specific actions, motions, and objections. We were able to communicate with the Riker team regularly and they were very responsive.
