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.
