Robert R. Baird says:

I am based in the metro Phoenix, AZ area. I would like to know who handles the state of AZ, when a bank or other entity requires a court appointed receiver? I left a message with Julie in your Chicago office and the appropriate person to answer my questions is supposed to return a call. However, I thought it would be prudent to also follow up with this email method as well.

Lastly Joe Karel for his recent appointment!

Onward and Upward!
