Your Business is Personal to Us

Kane & Papa is a small, boutique full-service bankruptcy firm by design. This allows us to delve deeply into each case and provide strategic, attentive service to each of our clients.

Our Approach to Service

Kane & Papa tailors its services to respond to a client’s particular needs. We understand that clients place high value on clear communication, practical advice and cost-effective outcomes. To achieve these objectives, we typically place responsibility for a client with a primary attorney who oversees communication with the client and coordinates other lawyers who bring their specialized skill and experience to the assignment. We encourage frequent client contact and full client participation in decision making, seeking to ensure that our activities are driven toward outcomes that meet the client’s stated needs.

Our Attorneys

To maintain our commitment to client service, we recruit candidates who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and community involvement. In addition to seeking talented professionals, Kane & Papa fosters and relies on a collegial atmosphere that enhances the professional development of our lawyers. This emphasis on collaboration carries over to client service. Our lawyers are encouraged to continue their development once they are in practice.
