About Me

Thank you for visiting my profile. I have been practicing Bankruptcy law for over 25 years in Indiana since graduating from Notre Dame Law School.


Many years ago when I was a young lawyer, I learned about Deuteronomy 15:1-3 which states "at the end of every seventh year you are to cancel the debts of those who owe you money..."  I realized that Bankruptcy law is as old as the Old Testament. When I shared this scripture with clients, they felt more at peace with bankruptcy. I hope that if you need to file bankruptcy, you, too, will find some peace with this age-old option.  


Please visit my website for more information. We look forward to helping you through this difficult time.
