About Me

My practice primarily includes representation in real estate and bankruptcy matters.

I represent clients in a variety of real estate matters. These include litigating mortgage deficiency claims, boundary and easement disputes, real estate purchase contract disputes, commercial lease disputes, and construction defect claims. I regularly conduct nonjudicial foreclosure actions on behalf of creditors on both residential and commercial properties. I have successfully represented many private lenders with respect to the enforcement and collection of promissory notes.

I have advised hundreds of individuals of their rights and potential liabilities under Arizona’s anti-deficiency statutes. Additionally, in cooperation with many trusted Realtors, I vigorously represent sellers in short sale transactions negotiating with lenders to facilitate the most advantageous resolution on behalf of my clients. I am an Arizona Department of Real Estate approved instructor and regularly teach continuing education courses to real estate agents on Arizona’s anti-deficiency statutes, short sales, contracts, agency and other subjects.

My practice also encompasses counseling and representing debtors regarding bankruptcy. I have assisted many individuals and married couples in obtaining a fresh start through bankruptcy under both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings. I am a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA).
