About me

I am a native of Little Rock, Arkansas.  Prior to going to law school, I worked as a professional musician in New York City for about 25 years.  Although being a lawyer is my full time job, I still work on weekends as a church organist and choir master.

I find it very gratifying to be able to help people resolve their financial difficulties and save their homes from foreclosure.  Unfortunately I can't help everyone, but I can certainly try!
