While working in the bankruptcy field for eight years, CEO Janine Sickmeyer spent her days and nights preparing bankruptcies for attorneys and their clients as a virtual paralegal. As Janine crunched numbers and entered piles of bills two, three and four times she knew that there had to be a better way.
In 2008, Janine began writing notes on napkins of the ideal bankruptcy software with the thought of someday becoming the first fully web-based solution. After teaching herself how to code, talking to attorneys across the nation and building a team of skilled developers, Janine's vision for NextChapter was created.
We developed NextChapter while working with attorneys, trustees, and the Bankruptcy Court, to make NextChapter the single trusted source for your bankruptcy practice.
We are committed to becoming the most intuitive bankruptcy program by combining superior user experiences with intelligent features and services. Our passion for legal technology, excellent customer support and client happiness pours through NextChapter in every way. We are driven by the desire to build meaningful applications in a market that has been longing for change.
Our vision at NextChapter is to become the single-trusted source for bankruptcy attorneys and their clients.
