About Sandra O’Connor

I have ten years of experience specializing in bankruptcy law, including the representation of trustees, creditors and debtors. My focus has always been on complex bankruptcy cases and bankruptcy litigation.

After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature, I earned my law degree from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2007, a top tier law school.

Since 2013, I have been certified as a consumer bankruptcy specialist by the American Board of Certification. The American Board of Certification is a non-profit organization which requires certified attorneys to meet rigorous standards, including continuing legal education and experience requirements, as well as references from other attorneys. As of October 2017, there are only 31 attorneys in Michigan who are certified as consumer bankruptcy specialists, less than two-thirds of which are in the Metro Detroit area.

I am a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute and the author of an article published in the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal, Signing Away § 522(d)(12) Exemption: Boilerplate Language Constitutes a Prohibited Transaction, AM. BANKR. INST. J., Nov. 2012, at 18.
