About me

“I hope I never need to call you.”  I have heard that response many times throughout my career when introducing myself as a bankruptcy attorney. The unfortunate reality of our current economic times is that often people do. Many people today are facing financial challenges that they never expected to, and are afraid and unsure of where to turn for help. If you are in debt, being sued, losing your home, facing garnishments or repossessions, I am here to help you. With proper advice and representation you can solve your debt problems, save your home and other assets and get a fresh start to put you back on the road to financial freedom. 

“Stand up for your rights. Don’t give up the fight.” – Bob Marley

Your bank has an attorney, and you should too.  I have dedicated my life and professional career to helping you, the consumer.  Too often we read in the news about banks breaking laws to steamroll the consumer.  The little guy often feels helpless and lost when facing big banks, corporations and debt collectors.  I will fight to keep you in your home, save your assets, and make sure there is a level playing field. 

In my 16 years of experience as a bankruptcy attorney I have learned that most of my clients are good people that have fallen on hard times. Job loss, divorce, medical issues, or bad investments are the main reasons for bankruptcy.  None of us really plan for these things to happen, but they just do.  We can’t change the cards we are dealt, but we can change how we play the hand.   Planning your bankruptcy case takes the skill, knowledge and expertise that is unique to our law firm. Each case brings its own set of circumstances.  There is no “cookie cutter” bankruptcy.  I am sensitive to each clients’ needs and issues. We are a dedicated team of professionals who know how to navigate through complex Bankruptcy laws and the court system.  Your case is our priority. 

I graduated from the Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law School in 1997, after earning my undergraduate degree from Lehigh University in 1994. In 1997, I took my first law job as a bankruptcy attorney for one of the local Chapter 7 panel trustees, where I gained invaluable experience working on all phases of bankruptcy litigation.   Building on that experience, I entered private practice because I knew I wanted to represent the consumer.  I have the knowledge and experience to file any type of bankruptcy case, from the simplest to the most complex. I have successfully handled thousands of Chapter 7 and 13 cases, representing both individuals and businesses.  I provide personalized, compassionate and aggressive representation because I know that filing for bankruptcy can be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make.  My goal is to provide you with cost effective and efficient legal services to obtain the best possible result in your bankruptcy case.  I will plan a strategy for your case to obtain the fresh start that you need.
