Irene is sometimes referred to as the “Bankruptcy Nerd” of our team, having represented thousands of consumers. Her experience of aiding clients in thousands of cases involving bankruptcy and debt resolution make Irene a force to be reckoned with in the legal arena. She had previously been working in the industry for the “Dark Side”, AKA Creditors, but has since had a change of heart. She has decided to return to the light in hopes of aiding consumers in their effort to rid themselves of insurmountable debt, and we are certainly pleased with this decision.

Irene, a recent mother of one—knows what it means to provide the care necessary to make clients feel safe and secure; giving them that crucial peace of mind that comes from knowing they are in good hands. Irene is capable of handling multiple tasks at once, obviously when you’re a mom that has to go without saying. Above all Irene decided to join Shipkevich in order to be a part of the technologically disruptive approach to consumer bankruptcy. In her experiences, she has kept tabs on the ins and outs of properly dealing with relentless creditors.

However, Irene isn’t all business. She spends her free time tapping into her Irish roots with some extravagant “river dancing.” Irene certainly retains the luck of the Irish, and she will be right by your side throughout the entire process.
