Ernesto D. Borges, Jr. graduated from Northern Illinois University Law School in 1984 and entered into private practice in 1985. From 1985, Mr. Borges maintained a general practice firm, representing individuals not only in bankruptcy and debt matters, but also in criminal matters, estate planning, divorce and a variety of other legal practice areas. His passion, he discovered, was for consumer bankruptcy and foreclosure defense litigation.
