About Me

I have traditionally devoted the majority of my practice to creditor's rights and judgment enforcement.

As a result, I feel that I have maintained an excellent reputation in the field, striving for the highest standards of professionalism and for expeditious results.


My concentration of practice is in federal and state litigation, particularly in the area of creditor's rights and commercial litigation.  


I represent both international and domestic clients with regard to liquidation of their accounts receivable.
