He has built a practice centered primarily around consumer bankruptcy, farm reorganizations and business reorganizations.

Attorney Menn has been a speaker at various seminars, on topics including exemption issues in bankruptcy, creditors’ rights when customers file bankruptcy, chapter 12 / farm reorganization issues, and chapter 13 bankruptcy issues including attorneys’ fees, student loans, unfiled claims, and dealing with underwater mortgages in chapter 13 cases.
