My 30 years of experience as a bankruptcy and business lawyer and litigator have taught me to be a problem solver. I work with both creditors and financially distressed businesses and individuals, advising them about the financial and legal issues confronting them, the possible ways to resolve them, and the possible range of outcomes. I help my clients focus on the bigger issues en route to making informed decisions.
I am a past chair of the State Bar of Arizona's Bankruptcy Section, a past speaker at its annual conventions, an active and respected member of the Arizona bankruptcy community, and listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 2005. Most importantly, I pride myself in working hard to get the best results for my clients.
I have represented real estate investors, store and business owners, franchisees, health care professionals, professional athletes, landlords, asset purchasers, and creditors committees, I hope that I can put my experience to work for you.
Outside of the office, I enjoy hiking, running, bicycling, and an occasional round of golf.
