About me

I have practiced exclusively in the areas of bankruptcy, insolvency, and consumer protection for my entire career.  I formerly worked for the largest consumer bankruptcy law firm in San Diego and I have personally handled hundreds of bankruptcy cases.  From the simplest cases to complex business cases, I have handled it all.  Bankruptcy, though, is not the solution for every problem.  I also have a passion for consumer protection, real estate law and foreclosure defense.  If you have a problem that relates to debt, your home or your credit, then I have a solution.  


 


FEES: I understand the need for affordable quality legal representation.  Compared to my competitors, our fees are very affordable.  I also offer payment plans – you can retain my firm for as little as $100.00 down and we can get started on your case.
