About Me

At work and at home, I see my job as making sense out of chaos. To do so, one has to understand what is doable and fashion a solution that not only works on paper but in practice. Often, I find fiscal and family issues are intertwined. I find that I can help as  I understand many family issues as  I have a wife and four kids including red heads  plus a dog and a cat. Plus my parents live nearby and I have  a brother who seems every year or two  to get involved in new business venttures  that always somehow  have  many unexpected  complications.


 I have  helped resolves issues in my community. My house of worship has asked to me several times  to resolve apparently unresolvable issues such mediating a heated dispute about the layout of cemetary plots between two grieving families who retained counsel as well as amicably resolve  a dispute resulting fron a hotel accepting reservations for its hall on  Yom Kippur from both a jewish gay group as well as a traditional Orthodox Jewish Congregation.Using  honesty, creativity  and empathy mixed with a dash of dry humor, I have found i can help  people and corporations  to meet and resolve  challenges in ones personal and business life.

    Herb is incredibly well versed in the many nuances of Bankruptcy Law, indeed, other attorneys seek his opinion on complex matters. He aggressively represents his clients, always in a professional manner. Those qualities and characteristics have earned him respect from other attorneys and, I believe, the judges. He is an excellent attorney, and I endorse him.

    I strongly endorse Herb. I have known Herb for many years and find he does an outstanding job for his clients. I have referred several difficult cases to Herb as he has the patience and creativity to tackle the prickliest of cases and work with the debtor until a feasible and agreeable a solution can be found. A true mensch.
