About Me

Born in NY, I moved to Delaware in 1974 and attended Widener University Law School.  I've been practicing law since I was 25 years old.  Started my own practice in 1978, and have not worked for anyone since.  I have handled thousands of bankruptcy and consumer law cases, but I also have substantial experience with family law, criminal law, injuries and accidents as well as appeals.  My practice is primarily consumer and consumer bankruptcy law at present.
