About Me

I am presently on temporary leave of absense from Bayer, Wishman & Leotta, having been called to active duty as a Major in the U.S. Army.


 


My primary professional endeavor has been as a  bankruptcy attorney and bankruptcy litigator. In law practice since 1989, I was formerly the Managing Partner of Slate & Leoni, APC, and joined Bayer, Wishman and Leotta in 2001.


 


I became a Certified Bankruptcy Specialist by the State Bar of California and I teach as Adjunct Professor of Bankruptcy Law at the University of West Los Angeles College of Law.


 


I am passionate in my devotion to helping people overcome financial distress, and I am highly committed to public service.


I also serve our local community an appointed member of the Planning Commission of Culver City.
