Richard K. Gustafson II,, a partner with Legal Helpers, P.C., began writing a semi-daily blog on the firm's personal bankruptcy information and assistance site,

In his blog, Gustafson writes in an informal style that will "simplify bankruptcy and the law in plain language," he said. Besides drawing on his experiences from more than 11 years as a bankruptcy attorney, the blog will also explain parts of the new bankruptcy laws that go into effect Oct. 17, 2005.

"I'll be blogging about personal bankruptcy; how it works, the impact it has on people's lives, and I'll touch on many of the human factors involved in bankruptcy, such as the emotional impact of how it affects people and their families," he explained in his first entry.

His writing will also reflect his deep-rooted sense of ethics, coupled with an uncompromising commitment to aggressive representation of his clients, he said.

Gustafson has advised and represented thousands of consumer bankruptcy clients during his 11-1/2 years as a bankruptcy attorney and is a manager of the bankruptcy practice group at Macey & Aleman.

Gustafson grew up in Wichita Falls, Tx. graduating from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tn., in 1990 with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics and earned his J.D. from Chicago's DePaul University College of Law in 1993.

Gustafson joined Macey & Aleman in 2000, being named a partner at the end of 2003, after working as an associate attorney in the Law Office of Peter F. Geraci. He became a member of the Illinois Bar in 1993, of the California Bar in 1997 and of the Indiana Bar in 2001. He currently lives in Evanston with his wife and two children.
