Barton Goth

BA, MBA, Licensed Insolvency Trustee, CIRP, Proposal Administrator

I think it is important to enjoy life!

I was born in Edmonton, Alberta and lived here all my life.  I am actively involved in my community, my local church congregation and my family.  I am married, a father of 3 and love to be involved in the lives of my children.

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to enjoy life.  As a Licensed Insolvency Trustee, I meet many people on a daily basis.  Most of the people I meet are struggling with their finances.  They are often discouraged and embarrassed about their present situation, and the stress often affects their lives, their health, and even their ability to sleep well. This is where I can help.

I have been working in the insolvency field since 1993. What I like best about my job is that I have an opportunity every day to help improve people’s lives. As I review each individual’s unique financial situation, I find it very rewarding to help my clients recognize that they aren’t alone and to offer them options that can immediately end the stress and help them return to a place where they can also enjoy life.

Desmond West-Chow

Licensed Insolvency Trustee, CIRP

Financial missteps happen, debt builds slowly, and life can be unexpected. I know this and I’ve helped many individuals and local businesses to both recognize and find solutions to financial hardship. Whether it’s providing relief from debt to Canada Revenue Agency for income taxes or GST accounts, or restructuring high-interest credit cards, and lines of credit, I have had experience in working with debtors and their creditors to finds what works. Most importantly, I can help provide relief when there seems to be no other option.

After living in Toronto, Kelowna and Calgary, I choose to return home to Edmonton. Aided in my decision by being a devout supporter of the Edmonton Oilers, I believe that this city is a great place to raise my young family.  In 2011, I decided to follow my father’s footsteps and become a Licenced Insolvency Trustee. After working in various fields during and after attending the University of Alberta, I determined that being a trustee was the best fit for me to deal with and help people on a daily basis.

I try to give back to this community by volunteering for various local organizations as well as for our professional association, CAIRP. Along with some close friends, I am a founding member of North of Lipsky, a group dedicated to raising funds and awareness for men’s health initiatives. North of Lipsky has been recognized as consistently being one of the top fundraisers by Movember Canada as well as Mayor Don Iveson for our support of the cause.

Omg! I’m finally feeling like I can relax. The last couple of months, have been extremely stressful and overwhelming. I left Real Estate in November .. but the CRA estimated my HST. And demanded I pay installments .. but wanted huge payments. That I couldn’t pay.So I decided to do a Consumer Proposal. Goth, explained everything to me & took care of everything and really took the stress out of my life.

The last couple of years, I had been going through some personal difficulties that put me in a place where I had no room to breathe financially. I felt like I was running around in circles paying left and right and was still not catching up. Until one day I realized, I can’t make all these payments next month. When I saw that I was in real trouble, I contacted Zach from 4 Pillars and was referred to Goth & Company Ltd. An appointment was made and I met with, David Mazerolle. I was anxious, I would have to tell what had happened that got me to the point of not being able to pay. The trustee put me at ease explaining everything. He went through every single step and how everything works. Before signing, went through all the calculations and how much my monthly payment would be. Having said all of this, if you are struggling, please know that there is help. Knowing what I know now, I encourage anyone experiencing a similar financial distress to contact Goth & Company Ltd. There is no risk, you will not be judged.

From time to time our firm needs to refer individuals to a Trustee in Bankruptcy in the Edmonton area and Goth & Company has been an excellent choice. A friendly voice answering the phone, combined with knowledgeable staff making themselves available to answer questions and schedule appointments leads to a great experience. We have always found their technical knowledge to be excellent and the feedback received from previous referrals is always positive. Thanks for your help Goth & Company.
