Thank you for visiting this page to find out a little more about me. I'm a Broward County bankruptcy lawyer. I help clients get out of debt by filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions. A core belief of mine is that everything in life is relationship based and I value the relationship that I develop with each and every client.
I know it's difficult trying to decide on a lawyer through the internet and because of that, I offer a "no charge - no obligation" initial consultation. This allows an opportunity to meet and review your financial situation. During this session, we'll discuss whatever options you may have available to get you back on your feet or out of an uncomfortable situation (lawsuits come to mind). Your best option may not be bankruptcy and if that's the case, you'll hear that from me also. I don't believe in "scare tactics" and my goal is to ease your fears and concerns - not escalate them so you'll hire me. My office is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. so you don't even have to miss work.
I have been licensed to practice law in the state of Florida since 2003. I am a member of the Florida Bar, Southern District of Florida, Broward Bar Association, American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA) and a proud member of the United States Supreme Court. All of these memberships keep me up to date on bankruptcy law, trends in bankruptcy and pending legislation that could help you!
Before becoming a lawyer, I was fortunate to work at AT&T for 21 years. There, I developed an indelible commitment to providing exceptional service at a highly professional level and producing a high quality work product. Those traits are still with me today and form the cornerstone of my practice. Most people aren't happy about filing bankruptcy and we're focused on making the experience a positive one. To achieve that goal, I try my best to return all phone calls and emails within 24 hours and keep the office open until 7:00 p.m. weekdays and until 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. My staff prides themselves on being responsive to your questions and requests. I make myself available for emergencies when necessary and it's important to know that I don't cut corners in preparing petitions - I do them all myself.
If you're feeling the weight of financial debt and it's stressing you out, call or email today and set up a free consultation. You have nothing to lose and might just find the answers that will help you start enjoying life again.
