About Me

I primarily represent struggling individuals and families who have struggled to keep up. For a myriad of reasons, the "honest but unfortunate debtor" is in trouble and in need of a "fresh start." My goal is to honestly assess a client's situation and provide them with a few options on how to emerge from what is either a difficult situation or a full-blown crisis. 


I'm also  passionate about Kentucky history and have a website, kaintuckeean.com, where I share on the historic and natural beauty of the Commonwealth. In the fall of 2014, my first book - Lost Lexington - was published.
