I am a general practice attorney and have represented clients at all levels of the state and federal courts in Colorado. I have handled jury trials dealing with claims involving as little as $2 and claims in excess of $2 million.
I specialize in consumer bankruptcy (Ch 7 and Ch 13) and family law. I offer a free initial consultation by phone or email for bankruptcy and family law matters.
I have been practicing law for over twelve years. I helped hundreds of people and have been successful in stopping garnishments, ending creditor harassment, removing second or third mortgages from houses, saving homes from foreclosure, and giving people the peace of mind and fresh start that the bankruptcy code was created to provide.
Licensed since 1999
Free Consultation (30 minutes)
