When I was “voluntold” to write this inaugural article for the DSBA Bankruptcy Section, I wondered how I would explain to the rest of the Bar what bankruptcy attorneys do. I envisioned readers’ eyes glazing over as I attempted to explain the nuances of non-consensual third-party releases, the Stern v. Marshall doctrine, or “adversary proceedings.” I then wondered whether an article might be better received if it explained that bankruptcy attorneys are not (only?) a special breed, subject to speaking in code, but rather are, at their core, consummate generalists. But first we have to build up the wall in order to take it down.
