About me


 I am a bankruptcy attorney, and also a sports law attorney for the cycling industry.


I got into bankruptcy law because when I was growing up we lost our house to foreclosure and later we also got evicted from another house. We were on welfare off and on. Financial problems never seemed to cease when I was a kid. I have real empathy for what my clients are going through. I know first hand how scary it can be. Although my parents did not have the tools to prevent some of the hardships, I now have the tools under the Bankruptcy Code to help my clients avoid some of the outcomes I had to deal with as a kid.


I got into representing cyclists and the cycling industry because I have always loved riding and racing my bike. I love watching the pro races on television. You could say I am addicted to the sport, so much so that I have been known to get up at 2:00 a.m. to watch a live European race over the internet. This is my passion.
