About Me

With my Bankruptcy law practice in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies, I feel the immediate impact I have on people’s lives. I see people who need immediate help with dire financial and personal situations. With my directed advice, I am able to resolve clients’ immediate problems. With my counsel and suggestions, I am able to put clients on a path towards financial wholeness that they might have never experienced before. I see my role as a bankruptcy attorney as more than just filing a petition. I provide a comprehensive level of service and attention. I hold my clients’ hands as we walk through this process together and provide guidance and advice so my clients have the tools to make sound financial decisions once they receive their bankruptcy discharges.

I manage all of my bankruptcy cases, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, closely and am a zealous advocate for my clients. My clients come in with urgent problems, and I am able to come up with immediate solutions.
