About Me

I have spent almost all of my legal career practicing Real Estate and Bankruptcy law. My firm handles any and all aspects of Bankruptcy law, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings.  


I teach a class at Solo Practice University called "The Basics of Real Estate."  I teach other attorneys how to be a Real Estate attorney.


When I am not working, I am either in the kitchen cooking or baking something or spending time with my kids.  I am also an avid scrapbooker.
