About me

More than 20 years ago, as a struggling law student with a small growing family,  my wife and I found ourselves overwhelmed with job losses and never-ending bills. We learned firsthand what it feels like to be in debt.


After obtaining my law degree, I put my education and knowledge to use by helping clients who are are facing difficult times. When I became an attorney in 1997, I worked for one of California's largest consumer bankruptcy law firms. In 2001, I started my own law firm and continued to practice in the areas of consumer bankruptcy law and debt relief. To date, I have counseled and helped more than 5,000 clients in finding solutions to their debt problems.


When I'm not working, I love spending time with my beautiful wife of 26 years and our 3 wonderful children. Family is important to me. A few years ago, I started introducing myself as a FAMILY FINANCE LAWYER because I am passionate about helping families who are struggling in this area of their lives. Whether they are facing foreclosure, debt problems, a failing business, medical bills, student loans or tax problems, I help them figure out the best solution for their situation so they can find financial peace of mind again. To me, that is priceless.
