Filing per year


Leah Judd at Arizona Consumer Law Group is truly passionate about her work. She found her calling - helping residents of Mesa get through tough circumstances. Together Leah Judd and John Skiba make their client’s lives better.


What inspired you to become a legal assistant?

I had never given much thought to doing anything in the legal world, but when John Skiba hired me as a legal assistant in 2013 I quickly learned that I love the work. I'm happy to be helping others through difficult times in their lives and I'm glad that I have the ability to make their difficult times a little less so by providing our service with kindness and compassion.


What do you like to do for fun?

Honestly, I love to clean and organize which is probably why I got the job in the first place. I also love to read, cook and bake, try new Mexican restaurants here in Arizona and most importantly, I love to spend time with my husband and our two sons.


How has NextChapter made filing bankruptcy cases easier?

Before NextChapter filing bankruptcies could be really time consuming and sometimes frustrating. With NextChapter's intuitive software, bankruptcy filing has become faster, easier, and a lot more enjoyable. Without having to input so much of the same information in different places like our previous software required, I can save time with NextChapter's format and devote the extra time I have to more effectively helping our clients.

How has using a cloud-based bankruptcy software positively affected your firm?

I primarily work from home so just the fact that I can access all of our client information online at anytime I need is great! I can do my job just as effectively at home as I can if I were in the office.


What are two benefits of using NextChapter?

There are many benefits to using NextChapter, but most important to users is the amazing customer service. The team members are so friendly and helpful, and the response for any question is quick and thorough. Another benefit that NextChapter users enjoy is the ease of use and convenience of having a completely cloud-based software accessible from anywhere.


We thrilled to have users like Leah Judd who remind us of why we created NextChapter - to make filing bankruptcies easier for our users so they can better serve their clients.
