About Me

As an attorney with over 20 years of experience I am committed to helping my clients make focused and strategic decisions. I have combined my strong background in finance with 20 years of legal experience and significant experience as a real estate developer and investor to counsel my clients facing underwater real estate loans. Any property owner with an underwater mortgage or distressed loan will benefit from a careful analysis of their options.
