About Me

I have been practicing bankruptcy law for my entire career.  I have experience in every aspect of the bankruptcy system, representing debtors, creditors, trustees, individuals, businesses, other lawyers, and even the United States government.  After seven years of practice, I decided to open my own law firm to pursue my passion--helping individuals and businesses in the bankruptcy courts.  Owning and operating Eron Law has now consumed half of my career, and it continues to be a grand adventure.


While bankruptcy is the primary focus of our firm, we assist a wide range of clients in defending and prosecuting business disputes, foreclosures, and breach of contract actions.  We also assist clients with their transactional needs, including incorporations, drafting operating agreements and bylaws, drafting and reviewing contracts and leases, preparing sales agreements, promissory notes, and security instruments, and arranging for the sale, division, or wind down of businesses.


Our firm provides highly personalized representation to all of our clients, from the poverty stricken individual to the multi-million dollar corporation.  We are available after hours as needed.  The individuals and companies who use our services are typically involved in very difficult circumstances.  We meet those circumstances with the skill, service, and respect that our clients deserve.  We listen and pursue our client's goals with diligence.  And our service is backed by some of the most highly educated and experienced professionals in the business.  If you or someone you know needs representation in the areas of bankruptcy, business transactions, or commercial litigation, give us call and see what a difference our customer focus makes.

  • January Michelle Bailey

    I have worked for David for over a year, and during that time, I have had the opportunity to see David interact with many clients and other professionals in the area. As a supervising attorney and mentor, he is superb - he is a wonderful teacher and very approachable. For clients, his attitude is respect - his clients are not just a number or a case to push through, but people that he takes the time to get to know, using the opportunity to help with budgeting and/or reorganizing. My experience has been that David's colleagues respect him and his knowledge of bankruptcy and the law. He has presented at several continuing education classes, and is a dynamic and energetic speaker. Overall, I highly endorse this attorney!
