About Me

Our firm only accepts clients that are having trouble dealing with bills or unwanted telephone calls. I am Board Certified in Consumer Bankruptcy Law by the American Board of Certification. I am the only attorney with this certification with an office within 50 miles of Wilkes-Barre or Scranton. (Source:, last visited January 26, 2012.) In addition to filing bankruptcy cases, we defend lawsuits filed by debt collectors. We also file suits against companies that place unwanted calls to consumers' cell phones.

    I have worked with Carlo on a few matters over the years, and know him to be a creative, skillful advocate for the consumer. We recently teamed up on a high-profile appeal on an important consumer protection subject, and Carlo's work at the trial and appellate level was top-notch. If you're in need of a consumer protection or bankruptcy lawyer in Northeast PA, Carlo's your man.
