About me

The truth is, I got lucky. When I started practicing bankruptcy law in 2007, I had

no idea that it would turn out to be the perfect area for combining my

education, my strengths and my passion.


I’m a numbers guy who cares about people and believes in making real change

in the world. When I was working on my undergraduate degree in finance, I

didn’t know that one day my ability to see financial patterns and do quick

calculations would help me turn people’s lives around. But, bankruptcy law

offered me the opportunity to do just that.


In most areas of law, there’s a winner and a loser. Often, as in divorce cases, no

one walks away happy. Right away, I saw that bankruptcy law was different. I

can help nearly everyone who walks through my door, and the end result is a

positive life change. Although that was very rewarding from the beginning, I

realized that the standard bankruptcy law firm practice of focusing on the

paperwork and the discharge wasn’t enough. I knew that for people to

experience real, lasting changes in their lives, they needed more than a fresh

start: they needed the tools to make the most of that fresh start and the

protection that would keep unscrupulous creditors and debt collectors from

pursuing them after discharge.


That’s how UpRight Law was born. I built my own firm so

that I could combine bankruptcy law, consumer protection and education to

truly give people everything they needed to build brighter financial futures. To

know that I have helped thousands of people sleep peacefully again after

months of stress, keep their family homes, or just breathe a sigh of relief is

immensely satisfying. I’m looking forward to helping thousands more make

the same type of positive changes.
