Your Augusta Bankruptcy Attorney
Why Choose Lee Ringler Law Offices?
Lee Ringler was awarded his undergraduate degree from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and his law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. During law school, he was a member of the Law Review and has two published notes.
Lee opened his office in Augusta in 1979, and has been doing only bankruptcy cases since the mid-80's. You would think that an attorney who has been practicing for 40 years should know more than an attorney with only 10 years experience, but this is not always the case. There are some attorneys who have practiced bankruptcy law for many years, but have never really mastered the subject. There are other attorneys who have pursued a general practice, filing a bankruptcy case now and then.
