I am located in the Los Angeles, CaIifornia area since 1986. I have worked as a CPA since 1981. In accounting, my field of expertise is related to Income Tax. In addition, to that degree I became an "IRS Enrolled Agent" (federal license) in July of 1996 and I am used to deal with the IRS; either doing business and personal income tax for my clients or representing my clientsbefore the IRS, in the event of a tax audit. I am still enrolled to practive before the IRS and in good standing
I also worked as a Real Estate Broker since June of 1994, in the area of financing loans to buy or maintain real estate; mainly conforming residential loans and jumbo loans. I am still active in real estate and in good standing with the CA Department of Real Estate.
I received my Law Degree form Abraham Lincoln University in Los Angeles, California in June of 2008 and passed the bar exam in July of 2008. I was awarded a Cum Laude honors while working full time my entire law education.
The combination of my major in accounting and law degree makes the perfect combination to handle a bankruptcy proceedings. Keep in mind that in a bankruptcy petition a debtor has to list his assets and liabilities very similiar to a Balance Sheet for a business. Additionally, a debtor has to disclose his income and expenses similiar to a Profit and Loss accounting statement. While the process seems cumbersome, a debtor is entitled to keep all his exempted property and also avoid law suits, wage garnishment, repossessions, bank levies and all creditors teckniques to make you pay a debt that most likely qualifies for a "discharge" (forgiveness) in bankruptcy court.
Most people are under the mistaken belief that business or personal income income tax are not "dischargeable" through bankruptcy; however, meeting certain conditions they are forgiven in full.

Call my office and the initial consultation is free and we also run a credti report for free during your consultation to weigh in your overall liabilities.
