I’m sure you are not reading this because you just hit the lottery. In fact, most of my potential clients normally contact my office as a “last resort”. I understand that it takes a good bit of courage to pick up the phone or send the initial email to my office, but I can assure you it will be worth your time and effort. I am a bankruptcy lawyer, but first and foremost, I am a proud Pennsylvanian. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, I cheer for the Penguins and I chose to become a bankruptcy attorney to help the hard working, industrious people of Western Pennsylvania who have fallen on hard financial times. New clients frequently try to convince me that they are good people and that bankruptcy was their final option. I can tell you that I NEVER JUDGE or make assumptions about one’s character during a first consultation, or at any other time for that matter. I truly listen to all concerns and offer a plan that restructures and eliminates debt while keeping your family’s best interests in mind. Bankruptcy has helped MY OWN FRIENDS AND FAMILY through tough times, and I see it as powerful reorganizational tool that is actually not utilized enough. I get it – times are tough for many individuals and families in Western Pennsylvania and when you have bill problems it can seem like there is no way out but the truth is, you have options, there is an exit door and that is precisely why we need to meet. I have helped several thousand people through the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 process. You won’t “scare” me, no matter how bad you believe your situation is relative to others. We will work together to GET YOU OUT OF DEBT AND REBUILD YOUR FINANCIAL LIFE. I hope that you find my web site helpful and informational. However, the information on these pages are only the “tip of the iceberg” in regard to the bankruptcy laws and procedure. The best advice I can give you at this point is to NOT ASSUME. In other words your situation is not identical to your co-worker’s, family member’s, or anyone else for that matter. Just because they may have had a bad experience with a consumer bankruptcy or bankruptcy lawyer, doesn’t mean YOU will. So feel free to fill out the web form or call my office during regular business hours. From there we will schedule a local consultation to see how we can work through your problems. As always, I will not charge you a penny until we agree to work together. I look forward to meeting you,

Meet Attorney Ronald Cook
I joined Foster Law Offices in May, 2011 after a successful career of 20+ years serving as a judicial law clerk with the Bankruptcy Court in Erie, PA. My experience with the Court has provided me with a vast knowledge of all chapters of the Bankruptcy code and great familiarity of the Bankruptcy process. It is important to note, that I chose to shift my focus to the “other side” of the bankruptcy field and help the hardworking people of Northwestern Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio to resolve their financial issues and I am emjoying every minute of it! I hope to have the opportunity to work with you and to learn more about your unique financial situation and how I may be able to help. TOGETHER, we can determine if bankruptcy is the right path for you. I am a licensed bankruptcy lawyer, licensed to practice in BOTH Pennsylvania and Ohio. I firmly believe that when choosing a bankruptcy firm and a bankruptcy lawyer – you should examine not only their professional credentials but also get to know a little about who your lawyer is beyond “the bankruptcy lawyer in a suit and tie”. When you come to my office, I WILL TAKE THE TIME to learn more about you and your unique financial situation, at Foster Law Offices, LLC – we know our clients by name, not by case number. So who is Ronald Cook? I am a bankruptcy lawyer, but I am also a “local guy”. I reside in North East, PA with my wife Cathy and our three babies (Bichon Frise dogs). My children and grandchildren all reside in the Erie area and my grandchildren attend Harborcreek Schools (Go Huskies!) Having grown up in the Akron area I am a loyal Browns fan, but I enjoy helping Steelers and Bills fans, too. (Dan is a Steelers Fan….) If you are looking for a lawyer with experience in the bankruptcy field, I hope your journey leads you to my office. Please feel free to contact me for a FREE CONSULTATION to discuss how WE CAN WORK TOGETHER to solve your financial problems for you.
