About Me

I was a law clerk to a Bankruptcy Court judge in Phoenix from 1998 to 2000. I practiced with a small bankruptcy firm that specialized in individual and small business Chapter 11 cases in Seattle, Washington. I returned to Phoenix to be closer to family when my daughter was born in 2006 and have worked for several consumer bankruptcy firms specializing in Chapter 7 and 13 since then.


The partners at my firm practice family law, criminal defense, and civil litigation.
