About Me

I have practiced law since 1988. I value the opportunity to serve clients and help resolve their conflicts. My goal is to vigorously represent my clients in the most cost effective and professional manner possible. My practice is focused on Bankruptcy and Insolvency matters and Commercial Litigation. I seek to provide as much information as possible to clients at the outset of the representation so that they can make the most informed decision on how to proceed with their case.   It is important to discuss the positive and negative aspect of a case as well as the approximate cost of proceeding with a course of action. 


 


I was Born in Chicago Illinois in 1961 and moved to Florida in 1977. I have been married for 23 years and have two children born in 1995 and 1999. Aside from practicing law, I enjoy family  travel, golf and the Beach.
